Our homes are all different, and they are all our very own space to flex our creative muscles and show off our personality. Some stick to the tried and tested soft neutral colour schemes that hold everything together with ease and familiarity whilst others stray from the beaten path and can boast something new and more complex in their interiors.
A shabby chic setting
One of our absolute favourite interior themes, one which is far from boring, is shabby chic; we choose to keep a lot of shabby chic furniture around our catalogue and throughout our ranges to inspire people to try these individual pieces that show a true character.
A little vintage, a little indie
The shabby chic style is all about the aged look; it adds … oomph! Something has to be beautifully charismatic to be considered shabby chic. it’s all about focusing on the character of the piece but this can be hard to complete a room with as you often end up with a miss-matching madness.
It all comes down to the accessories!
This is our staple advice, fix up your accessories!! There is nothing you cannot blend or mesh or ease into your interior dynamic with the right accessories. Shabby chic designs need a precise and clinical use of accessories so as to create a beautiful interior with a fluid feel to it whilst still maintaining the natural and carefree essence that makes it so vintage.
The accessories are truly the stars when it comes to a shabby chic image, as the furniture, although exquisite and a show stopper in its own sense, is merely the canvas you use to throw your personality onto. Besides, it just wouldn’t work without them.
Check out our homely signs with their friendly essence, bringing a relaxed casual feel you need to create an aged look. From the home of shabby chic accessories, Gisela Graham, they have exactly what we look for in a glue for your bigger pieces.
It can become an extremely attractive force when you find the right colour combinations for your interior, but we encourage you to throw some cold water on yourself and resist! The shabby chic look is perfect when you have a little bit of asymmetry and imperfection, sticking to painted woods, as these are rustic, but varying the colour or texture of the accessories can boost your individuality.
There’s a lot to say about shabby chic style, and we truly want to be your guide through it all, but as for now we will have to leave you with a few simple words on the accessory side of things. Believe us, we have much more to say! I suppose you have to take a lot of care to establish a casual look …
