Chic and shabby interior design is a popular decorating style that combines vintage and antique elements with modern and contemporary elements to create a unique and stylish look. The style is emphazied by a mix of furniture and accessories that are distressed, weathered, or worn-looking, paired with more polished or refined pieces.
The “chic” element of this design style refers to the modern and sophisticated pieces that are incorporated into the space, while the “shabby” element refers to the vintage and rustic elements that are intentionally made to look aged and well-worn.
Common elements include distressed furniture, vintage fabrics and linens, muted or pastel color schemes, decorative trims and details, and a variety of textures such as lace, burlap, and linen.
This decor theme is characterised by its use of soft colours, gentle textures, natural materials and a country-cottage feel.
This style is often used in cottage or farmhouse-style homes, as well as in urban apartments and lofts, and it can be adapted to suit a range of tastes and preferences. It’s a great way to add character and personality to a space, and can create a cozy and inviting atmosphere.
