We looked at Traditional decorating a while ago so I thought Shabby Chic might be interesting.
So what is Shabby Chic anyway? Think casual, pastel colors, lot’s of white, vintage items, rod iron, distressed furniture, colorful prints and worn out furniture. Originally created by Rachel Ashwell back in the 80’s, Shabby Chic has become a whole theme by itself. People love it and you now commonly see it in all the decorating magazines and shows. Rachel Ashwell came up with this design theme after spending countless hours at garage sales and thrift stores looking for furniture with clean lines.
This decorating style is warm and inviting. If you are on a tight budget this décor is right for you and don’t forget to ask you grandmother, she may very well have some great stuff to add!
