Shabby chic interior design aims to make use of mid century modern 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, perfect for mid cntury modern homes.
The shabby chic look is loved for its lushness and richness in details but clean soft colors and you can put some details like mid century modenr chairs or mid century modern lighting. 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.
