Shabby chic and vintage-inspired, a kind of rusty decor is extremely popular today as old times have their own unique charm that leaves a lasting impression. Designers create adorable shabby chic and only vintage interiors, filling them with gorgeous worn furniture, textures and accessories, and many of us are following the trend too. There are several techniques that can be used to achieve an aging look: patina paint, aging and weathering solutions for wood and metal, and whitewash for all types of surfaces.
Whitewash is the most popular idea as it is incredibly easy to implement and there is no shabby chic interior without shabby whitewashed parts or surfaces. If you have brick or faux brick walls or a fireplace, whitewashing is pretty easy and only necessary for you. We’re going to show you some guides on how to do this.
First, cover any floor space around your brick with tape, paper, or whatever, or you will get whitewashed flooring too. Mix up your whitewash. For the first layer, mix 1 cup of latex paint (eggshell or satin gloss) with 1 cup of water. Just dip the tip of your brush (1 / 4-1 / 2 in.) Into the whitewash, blot the paint over a brick, and blot it off. Then, twirl them and work them into the nooks and crannies. In a few minutes the whitewash penetrates the brick and appears more translucent. If you really think you’ve put too much paint on, you can blot the paint off with a rag or add a little more water to the solution. For your 2nd layer, the ratio of whitewash should be 1 cup of paint: 2/3 cup of water. Apply the 2nd layer only to the areas that need it. Voila! You can find more tutorials and ideas below.
Purple and all its hues are a very unexpected choice for interior decoration. You don't get hit often. If you want something out of the ordinary and out of the ordinary, this is a perfect idea. Dark purples are dramatic and should only be used as a secondary to add depth or you will get a melancholy look otherwise. Lighter shades give the room a relaxing feeling, but without being too cold. So, using them for a bedroom is a great idea and I'm ready to share some options!
Purple / lilac walls
The most popular way to incorporate a color into a room is to rock an accent wall. Such an idea never goes out of style. It can be a headboard or other wall, or you can go for purple walls - all of them. Remember that dark purple walls make the room moody, and lighter shades of color make it playful and romantic.
If you are unsure about whether to add lots of lavender or lavender to your bedroom decor, there are easier ways to do so so that you can easily change your decor. This is usually furniture and accessories in a desired color that can be changed at any time. Rock a purple bed, stool, bench, even sofa, choose purple artwork, and of course, textiles - bedding and curtains. If you have a monochrome black and white or neutral room, you can easily freshen it up with purple textiles or with lavender and lavender textiles and not change anything else. Enjoy!
