5 Top Tips for Achieving the Shabby Chic Look

Shabby chic is a classic style that has been around for decades. Featuring a combination of white walls and pastel colours, items with a ‘distressed’ look, old worn sofas, faded paintwork and fixtures, the overall aesthetic is well-worn, comfortable, and super appealing. The style, unlike the paint, never seems to fade.
Here are 5 must-have items to add shabby chic to your home:

1. Tables
A perennial favourite and instant attention grabber in dining rooms and kitchens. They set off any existing style you have currently and are easy to add accessories to as there’s not much that doesn't look snazzy on a shabby chic table!

2. Antique Fixtures
A feature in any room, antique fixtures are what sets shabby chic apart from other styles. Add old style lamps to coffee tables, brass candle holders to distressed dining tables, quirky bookends to bookshelves, flowery vases to window sills.

3. White Walls and Accessories
White walls are a shabby chic staple, as once they are decorated there are a variety of accessories you can use to draw the eye. If you have a wall with unused space then why not hang up this Charles River Clock? A simple stylish way to make a feature out of a wall.

4. Wooden Floors
Shabby chic is not a style that goes hand in hand with minimalist perfection, in fact, it's the antithesis of it. Wooden floorboards with the perfect rug to set it off can often be more stylish and homely than expensive marble floor tiles. We have a large collection that is perfect for this style here.

5. Coffee Table Accessories
Mixing shabby chic with modern is a great way of keeping the look up to date. If you find that perfect candle holder or antique box and unsure where to place it why not add it to our Jual Lamp Table, perfect for mixing styles and keeping everything fresh!
