I bet you are asking yourself what exactly is Shabby Chic interior design?
This style is very similar to rustic chic and can include variations of French country, beach cottage, and cottage chic. It includes a softer color palette, distressed or antiqued furniture and can be best described as casual but also elegant. This style often takes on more of a feminine décor but if done with a modern flare can work in a masculine or feminine space. Shabby chic can also be compared to vintage in the sense that pieces should be unique and one of a kind. You will want to look for pieces that have curved lines, are larger scale and ultimately are comfortable.
A great way to achieve a soft look is to use soft materials. In this case that means fabric, fabric, fabric! Don’t be afraid to layer your pillows, add window treatments, blankets and plush bedding. To keep the space looking soft, this is a great opportunity to work with a monochromatic color scheme (variations of the same color tones) and use different textures to create visual interest. To offset your soft materials a great addition to the space is a chandelier. Light will reflect off of your crystals and add a touch of elegance to your room.
Incorporate a variation of silver and gold accessories and use candles to add warmth to your space. Your room should look like a collection of pieces over time and not only feel light but also effortless.
