Shabby chic interiors evoke a warm, comfy, casual feeling. It is an extremely popular trend in home decorating, weddings, crafting and more. Some of the characteristics of Shabby Chic are layering on the texture such as wicker, linen, cotton, and burlap. Don’t be afraid to mix furnishings in different finishes, colors and styles, or from different eras. Introduce painted, stained and distressed woods, as well as metals and iron. Vintage fixtures, hardware and accessories married with white or pastel-painted cabinets are the essence of today’s shabby chic style.
Another characteristic of Shabby Chic is well worn furniture with beautiful patinas. For a truly unique piece, create your own patina by removing some of the paint on furniture with steel wool. Use a piece of furniture differently than that it was originally made for. What a great way to reuse, re purpose and up-cycle!
