Shabby Chic Furniture & Decor Ideas

Shabby Chic is all about a collection of the things you love in a space you adore. This type of decor is beloved for celebrating the beauty of aging objects that transform a house into a well-loved home.

Design 101: What is Shabby Chic?

Shabby Chic is a decor style that uses aged furniture and other items to create a vintage look within the home. Worn around the edges or gently broken in, Shabby Chic is the perfect balance between luxury and lived-in. Frills and ruffles lend to a comfortable and soft space. Distressed furniture and vintage home decor bring intimacy to luxurious spaces, cozy up a large room, and utilize the nooks and crannies in your home.

For the decor enthusiast who strives to use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without, Shabby Chic is your cup of tea. Whether you prefer a terraced house in a misty London borough or a whitewashed cottage tucked into a rural hillside, this type of decor is beloved for celebrating the beauty of aging objects that transform a house into a well-loved home. It's all about a collection of the things you love in a space you adore.
