Some country looks are marked by extensive use of white wood paneling and soft floral patterns, muted hues and pops of red, black or pure white accents. Floral, checked and striped vintage fabric patterns, slip covers are standards, and elements have a handmade, rustic quality: wood, handmade pottery, baskets and hand-forged metal to name a few. Primitive furnishings have history to them, and are bought in antique shops and flea markets.
Shabby chic interior design aims to make use of furniture and furnishings that appear aged and show clear signs of wear and tear or where new items are distressed to achieve the appearance of an antique. At the same time, a soft, opulent, yet cottage-style decor, often with an affected feel is emphasized to differentiate it from genuine period decor.
The shabby chic look is loved for its lushness and richness in details but clean soft colors. The feminine finishes and the time worn textures give the furniture its soul and history. Vintage is often combined with modern to give a room an eclectic mix.
Vintage fixtures, hardware and accessories married with white or pastel-painted cabinets are the essence of today’s shabby chic style kitchen. Decorating with lace and floral patterns are also at the heart of shabby chic design.
Now that you have some ideas about creating the perfect shabby chic, why don’t you give it a try in your own home?
