Shabby Chic style is about the beauty of imperfection, and the effort that can go into creating an effortless look.
Although it’s sometimes hard to pin down, the essence of the style is that it celebrates an aged, worn look rather than creating a new, polished look to a room. Often, this is achieved through purchasing antique furniture, or newer furniture that has been distressed to give it an older look.
Shabby Chic décor can appear quite eclectic, as if the room’s composition has grown organically without much thought, but in reality it can take a great deal of meticulous planning – and trips to flea markets – to achieve the desired effect.
In celebration of this unique style, we’ve put together a list of some truly stunning Shabby Chic living rooms.
