Last updated on June 8, 2024

What kind of bedroom decor do you favor? The days when the bedroom had to be crisp, clean, simple, and modern are gone, and now there’s a lot more freedom to experiment.

Shabby chic decor, albeit usually feminine, is very budget-friendly and allows you to create elegance without going on a splurge. That’s what we like most about this style.
