Shabby chic décor styling


Simplicity is the key to shabby chic. Shabby chic home décor is a form of interior design. When you think of shabby chic décor, think about furniture that has a slightly aged effect – whether this is painted in stunning chalky or pastel colours or with relaxed vintage feel wood. 

This interior style adds understated character and personality, to simple light living spaces. Shabby chic décor celebrates the patina of aged objects. A classic example, is a superb Genesis fabric accent chair in pale grey and white, like the one featured here. Perched upon an understated natural carpet, complemented by painted garden room green coloured walls, and sitting quietly next to an oak finished set of Bibury shabby chic occasional tables.

You’ll turn life's little chaotic moments into moments of calm. Shabby chic décor styling creates a space that’ll make you want to sit down, kick off your shoes and stay for a moment or two… 

 

'The chaos doesn't end you just kinda' become the calm'

Your starting point in shabby chic home décor, is your walls and flooring. Whites, off whites, sages, light blues and greys are a great canvas to start your look from. We recommend avoiding bold colours, you can always use bold accessories to incorporate colour into your serene foundation.

Make walls as plain as possible. A feature wall can be added using wallpaper to create a focal point in your room. Just like the one pictured here, that’s set of beautifully by this Ludlow shabby chic console table with its superb inlayed detailing, and rustic style cup handle.

The blank canvas of this superb room, helps to accentuate the gorgeous taupe painted furniture that sits effortlessly in it.
