Shabby CHic


You flowery girl, you! Your favorite style is all flowers paired with worn and chippy pieces. Slipcovers and white-washed furniture are a staple of the Shabby Chic style you love too!


Made popular by Rachel Ashwell and her retail chain in the1980s, shabby chic decorating combines the idea that something worn and perhaps dilapidated can also be elegant and stylish. Simple slipcovers, flower arrangements like roses or hydrangeas, chippy painted or white-washed wood furniture, and shades of white (and other soft colors) are indicative of shabby chic decorating. Vintage mirrors, spray painted formerly brass chandeliers with hanging crystals, handcrafted and vintage as opposed to mass-produced.

Wait a sec!  Does this sound like you?

Hi, I’m Shannon.

Before we go any further, let me introduce myself. I believe home is the most important place on earth and it’s my passion to help other women create the home they’ve always wanted right where they are.

After a couple of decades of making our house a home (while homeschooling three kids), two years of professional interior design training, and two traditionally-published home decor and organization books, I am so excited to share what I’ve learned with you.
