Charm & elegance
This interior has a vintage inspired décor with a distinctly feminine and elegant touch. We’ve added recycled furniture and preloved treasures to the calm, classic living room. One of a kind finds like vintage signs and letters add a whimsical atmosphere to the walls. Heavily painted, time-worn pieces and washed linen sofas provide comfort, function and beauty. We’ve added ruffled bedskirts and piles of pillows to create a soft, relaxed bedroom that’s both feminine and romantic, sentimental and elegant. The dining room table - a delightfully imperfect, upcycled junkyard treasure is paired here with long, loose fitting, ruffled white linen chairs.
How to get the look
To bring this trend to life, we’ve chosen a colour palette limited almost entirely to whites and subtle, neutral shades in natural fabrics like Panama Cotton, Unbleached Linen or Pure Washed Linen, since this style relies on textures and ornamental detailing to really work. The vintage treasures and colourful, feminine accessories we’ve selected like the vintage chandelier truly characterise Shabby Chic’s timeless appeal. We’ve designed our Loose Fit Country covers to make it easy for you to give your IKEA sofas and chairs the Shabby Chic look.
