More Shabby Chic

Shabby Chic is a comfortable, casual decorating style with a look that uses vintage accessories, pastels, and comfortable furniture.

Think of visiting with your grandmother, snuggled in comfortable soft furniture. Fresh flowers look beautiful and the soft scent of candles fills the room.

Shabby Chic is no particular style, but rather balances elegant things with old and worn, shiny silver accessories with painted wooden tables, soft throw rugs with rough old lace.

 

If you love bold primary colors, Shabby Chic is not for you. Soft white, muted grey, pale pink, and faded green all have a place in a Shabby Chic interior.

 

Almost any piece of wooden furniture will fit into a Shabby Chic® interior if it’s painted white. Collect pieces from flea markets, garage sales, and the attic. Spray with white paint, sand off the corners and rough it up a little, and voila!

 

Not every chair has to be sat on. How about using a sturdy, painted straight chair as a table at the side of a bed or sofa or in a corner to hold a vase of flowers?

Stack wooden boxes at the side of a chair for books and flowers. Be creative and use what you have.
