Freshen up this Spring - with shabby chic living and more...


Create your shabby chic living room

Bring your living room back to life this Spring, by giving it some shabby chic loving!

A shabby chic home boasts an eclectic style that blends together pastel colours with lace and feminine florals to give a beautifully vintage appeal. 

'Where there is love there is life'- Mahatma Ghandi


It's a look you'll find easy to achieve, and that isn't going to break the bank. You really can choose shabby chic home styles to suit any budget to give your living room the ultimate uplift.



Use a predominantly white colour scheme

'A quiet life stimulates the creative mind'- Albert Einstein


Start off with a quietly calming white colour scheme. A good idea for starting off your living room refresh, is to white wash your walls and floors - this will totally rejuvenate your space and give it a new lease of life.

Now to get creative, choose your first piece of shabby chic furniture like this stunning Ludlow Shabby Chic Console Table, that will become the first building block of your delightful new look. If you like this, take a look at other items in the Ludlow Shabby Chic Collection.

Adding in touches of chalky pastel colours, like soft grey, duck egg blue, champagne pink, and lilac, will help you to create a blissful haven that your family will just love relaxing in.



Mix the vintage with the new

At the very heart of your shabby chic living room, is your shabby chic furniture. 

Your revamped shabby chic dining room will be light and airy. With this Bibury Shabby Chic Wine Rack painted in this gorgeous soft grey colour, you'll also create a relaxed and vintage feel, especially when you fill it with bottles of your favourite aged vinos... 

'Some old fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat'- Laura Ingalls Wilder


If you have a smaller budget, you can still achieve this look by mixing and matching your new shabby chic furniture, with pre-loved accessories, soft and light linens, and drapes to add relaxed glamour.



Remember that unloved dining room that you started with? Now with its revitalised new shabby chic décor, made easy in just a few simple steps. A Springtime refresh that will last you and your family a lifetime. You'll change it up from time to time, just by changing a few of your accessories, or through adding a few new furniture pieces to your shabby chic living room over time.
