3 Quick Tips to Shabby Chic Your Home
One of our favorite parts of this design style is the rustic, country flair of whitewashed and distressed furniture. A distressed wooden china cabinet or buffet will add a charming touch to your kitchen or dining room. Look for a farmhouse-style coffee table or rustic end tables to add a country touch to your living room. For the bedroom, you can tie in antiqued nightstands or a whitewashed armoire to lend a Shabby Chic touch.
If you haven’t already noticed, granny florals are all the rage. From the classic tea rose to playful paisley, floral prints are a Shabby Chic staple. Don’t be afraid to mix-and-match floral patterns throughout your space. Play with various floral designs in complementary colors. We love throwing in a bold floral print to break up a neutral furniture group or dinnerware set.
Antiques and vintage decor are essential to a Shabby Chic look. There’s little better than digging through antique store shelves for unique finds. You can also recreate the look of vintage decor without breaking the bank on expensive antiques. Look for vintage-inspired home decor like ceramic crocks, blue mason jars, distressed metal bird cages, burlap-covered boxes, and old fashioned trunks to place around your space.
