your style is shabby chic

YOU'RE A SHABBY CHIC STYLE LOVER!


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!

SO, WHAT THE HECK IS SHABBY CHIC STYLE?

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?
