35 Shabby Chic Rooms That’ll Make Your Heart Skip A Beat

Shabby chic rooms that'll make your heart skip a beat!

Shabby chic is a style in home decorating where furniture and furnishing is chosen for their appearance of age and wear or new furniture is distressed to appear antique.

Shabby Chic goes far beyond the stereotype of a few tea-stained florals and some cushy chairs. Some have called this look “a marriage between the laid-back, breezy ease of Los Angeles beach life and the romantic prettiness of English country life at its most casual.”

Don’t let the word “shabby” fool you when applying  the principles of shabby chic style into a room. The look may be unstructured and without  formal rules, but this aesthetic can add an effortless elegance to your home. With handcrafted, salvaged furniture and vintage textiles available not only in flea markets, but also in retail shops , you have a lot of choice. You might even have something in your attic  – an old and out of style piece of furniture just waiting to be whitewashed and restored. That’s the beauty of shabby chic style – it’s budget-friendly and easy to get your hands on.

Shabby chic pieces have several coats of paint, with layers showing and have that worn look acquired by age. If you don’t have that kind of furniture, you can imitate it with faux painting using glaze or painting then sanding away the top coat, which is known as “distressing”.

Base your rooms around a white scheme, adding in pastel touches of duck egg blue, champagne pink and lilac for the ultimate shabby chic design. Natural flooring or white washed floorboards will also add to your theme, as will earthy accents. Opt for wooden benches, wicker chairs and floral soft furnishing to complete your look. Other popular decor items are pillows made of vintage fabric with patterns, vintage chandeliers, and anything with roses in the design.

Shabby chic represents  a soft, relaxed, feminine, and romantic style of decorating a home but it looks comfortable, livable and inviting.
