SHABBY CHIC HOME STYLE
Shabby Chic is an interior home trend that is still going strong. This eclectic style mixes vintage furniture with pastel muted colours to achieve a relaxed, informal style. Perfect for creating a country cottage look in your home.
Weathered and distressed vintage furniture makes a great focal point for a shabby chic room. Pick up old shutters, mirrors, dressers and cupboards from markets, car boot sales or antique stores. Most furniture retailers offer reclaimed and pre-distressed pieces, but there are many DIY options. Grab a pot of chalky paint and give an old chest of drawers a shabby chic makeover.
Shabby Chic Colours
Chalky, muted colours are the basis for this interior trend. Soft creams with chalky pinks, blues and greens.
Complement pieces of furniture with soft furnishings in desaturated florals and neutral shades. Mix and match these colours to create an eclectic, relaxed and informal room which is inviting and homely.
