Shabby chic is one of my all time favorite decorating styles combining romance with age, elegance and beauty. When you envision a shabby chic room think of luxurious accents and timeless well-used furnishings mixed together to create the perfect country cottage look full of romance and charm. I’m sure you’ve heard the saying one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, well that’s a very familiar statement in the world of shabby chic decorating, as shabby chic is known for creating beauty by bringing worn out furnishings and thrift store finds back to life. To create a Shabby Chic look you should incorporate various textures and shades of white, well used or distressed furniture, vintage treasures, floral, paisley and striped fabrics, rod iron, pastel colors, crystals, lace, ruffles and floral arrangements.
