Shabby chic is the new trend both in fashion and design culture.
And what “shabby” stands for?
Shabby chic interior design aims to make use of furniture and furnishings that appear aged and show clear signs of wear and tear or where new items are distressed to achieve the appearance of an antique. At the same time, a soft, opulent, yet cottage-style decor, often with an affected feel is emphasized to differentiate it from genuine period decor.
The shabby chic look is loved for its lushness and richness in details but clean soft colors. The feminine finishes and the time worn textures give the furniture its soul and history. Vintage is often combined with modern to give a room an eclectic mix.
Vintage fixtures, hardware and accessories married with white or pastel-painted cabinets are the essence of today’s shabby chic style kitchen. Decorating with lace and floral patterns are also at the heart of shabby chic design.
