What's your favorite take on Shabby Chic?!
I have always been a fan of this particular style - minus the heavy foofy fabrics.
Shabby reminds me of beautiful old European/American shaker homes, filled with beautiful reclaimed items with history. I love the funny side table built by a humble farmer, or the old patina light fixture hanging in the entry way. I love the find - the one-of-a-kind item you only see once!
In the 1980's Great Britain inspired this design, from their old country houses full of shaded items. Travel into Sweden and France, you get the same ideas only with different shades/hues of color.
Once you find that special one-of-a-kind piece, they become heirlooms forever!
