What is Shabby Chic Style?

Shabby chic style is a relaxed homespun look which combines soft colors, florals all of small and large designs on a clean palette. Combined without regulation, it's a style that is eclectic and a mix of your favorite soft prints. For the most part, decorative items can be a mix of rustic painted wood mirrors, wastebaskets, tissue boxes, and similar items. The finish should not be perfectly smooth, rather a bit of texture where paint is either sanded off or some antique peeling is evident.

Floral appliques are an essential details to the decorative items and the edges of the floral details should be lightly sanded to give it the weathered look. Small beaded and rope trims can also be added to the edges of mirrors and shelves to frame the product.

That's shabby chic style. No need to touch up to make it look like a factory made piece from China. The Shabby chic style lets you live and be free.
