That phrase says it all for me. There was a time when Shabby Chic meant everything was covered with roses and was pink, it can be, but what it really means is finding pieces that have been used, and loved, and have character and age. I love mixing furniture styles, textures and centuries in my rooms. An aged patina to a piece tells a story about where it's been and who it's been with....it's not assembly line made without life! I want things surrounding me that have that sense of history whether it's mine or someone else's. So repurpose, redefine and reuse pieces that you find!
Here are few favorites that I would style in a family room space.
|Great little reading space.. love the french inspired linen, the industrial style of the table makes |
you wonder "where did that come from?"
|Comfy sofa with neutral tones to work with any colors. The style is classic and versatile.|
|Add an Iron coffee table to offset the soft fabrics|
|A little high style mixes it up!|
|Great accessories are the crowning touch|
|Someone used these once what adventures they must have had!|
|Cozy throw reminds me of Great-Grandma's hand made quilts and the color make a splash!|
