If you’re bored of your old decor and looking for a unique but stylish new look, then shabby chic furniture could be the way forward.
Shabby chic is a type of furniture that is designed to look extremely homely. Pieces are made to look old and ‘worn’, and as though they have been handed down through several generations- resulting in an elegant yet traditional look.
Several different pieces of furniture can be used to create the look- including cabinets, dressers and chests of drawers.
You can create a shabby chic look in all, or just one room of your home. The look is particularly popular in living rooms and kitchens- as there are a fantastic range of shabby chic accessories available- such as antique style hooks, candle sticks and crockery.
The shabby chic look is extremely cost effective to create, and is great for homes with children or pets- as any damage to furniture or accessories is far less noticeable than on more modern styles of furniture.
If you’re looking for a little inspiration, then browsing interior design magazines and websites can help you create the perfect shabby chic look.
