Now after the Romantic Shabby Chic bedroom I think the next most romantic room is the bathroom. Just look at this picture rose petals, tea and some soft music and join me in the Shabby Chic Ireland collection:
I love this bath the combination of modern clean lines and antique flowery look works well and makes your living space very personal.
The dress for the basin is an interesting idea- personally I would be a bit sceptical about the practicality of it- but it is an idea if you want to hide some items under the basin.
In both pictures they have used beautiful old painted dressers for the basin.

You will need:
Acid free paper(from a office/stationary supply)
Clove oil (3 drop)
Essential oils (3-4 drops)Good choices are lavender, lemon, apricot, rosemary, orange or mandarin experiment with the strengths.
1.Fill a clean spray bottle with warm water.
2.Dip teabag in for 3 min and remove
3.Add clove oil (the clove oil and teabag help with the deterrent of dust mite and mould)
4.Add essential oils
6.Spray solution on each piece of paper and allow to dry completely before use.
White clothes can benefit from blue paper (tissue)to prevent yellowing.
Romantic Shabby Chic Cupboards
Why hide the items in the cupboard. This cupboard looks great and shows of all the nice cushions and covers.
I know that is not a bedroom cupboard but isn't it a great idea...
Mirrors in the Romantic Shabby Chic bedroom.
Love this, a combination of different sized mirrors. Wall full of mirrors.
This was a mirror of a broken cupboard that was painted and put on the floor instead.
This mirror was a old window.
Ideal for a reading light that can also look very romantic.
This is a good idea to use old suitcases as storage and a "bedside table"
The use of an old frame with blackboard inside- easy to paint.
A padded foot stool.
All done in white.
Cover the bed side table in a vintage piece of material.
Here a small table is both a dressing table and a bedside table.
Chairs in the bedroom:
Any chair can work- by painting the chair white and covering it in material that fits in with the bedroom.
Use it as a place to drink a cup of tea, read a book or listen to some music.
Love the writing on the wall, a french poem..
Shelves in the bedroom:
Open shelves in the bedroom are ideal for the bits that you are collecting
I know this is not a bedrom shelve, but isn't it very romantic shabby chic.
Books and flowers
At the foot of the bed:
These baskets are great and can take a lot of storage, make it more romantic shabby chic by placing white cushions on top.
Covered foot stool.
Against the wall:
This is the ideal place for photographs of yourself- or those wedding photos.
A lighting must have for the romantic shabby chic look is the chandelier.
