Decorating your home can be an ordeal, especially if you aren’t sure about which look to go for. A look which has come around once again is shabby chic. It can compliment almost any kitchen, whether it is modern or in a farmhouse style it can add a real twist to your decor.
Shabby chic can be applied by adding a few small accessories, or having a large wooden dresser to house your plates, cutlery and glassware. A rustic wall unit which has distressed paintwork makes for a beautiful shabby chic item for your kitchen. You can use it to store almost any item or just use it as an accessory which houses ornate candle holders or photo frames.
One signature statement of the shabby chic look is a large French wall clock. They are the epitome of vintage and look stunning on any wall of your home. Why not add to the continuing shabby chic French theme by placing one of your well thumbed recipe books on a shabby chic cast iron cook book stand. This piece looks great if you are actually using the book or just for show.
