Well, if you answer yes to any of the above questions then maybe the shabby chic style is for you and your home.
Achieving a Vintage Romantic Style Interior in your home
In this article we will discuss how to achieve the ‘Vintage Romantic Style’ also know as the shabby chic trend. This style has been described as a ‘cosy haven’, a peaceful interior that always uplifts and comforts you as you enter the room.
Accessories needed to complete this timeless style
This style evolves round old accessories such as: dried flowers, hardback books, worn chairs and sofas, dramatic wall mirrors, gilded frames, lampshades with tassels, cushions with frills, candles and elegant ornaments. You need not invest in fine antiques at extortionate prices but purchase your needed items from secondhand shops, car boot sales or yards. You may already have a number of items like the above scattered around your home or boxed up in the loft.
Making use of old battered frames and accessories
Popular accessories for this look are old old frames. It is easy to overlook these with their washed out pictures and battered frames. Tired elegant objects may not look much on their own, but well placed or grouped together, such accessories an make your room the envy of all. Vintage pieces of furniture in the right environment will this style the wow factor it deserves. It’s all about making use of the old not the new.
Shabby Chic Furnishings
The furnishings you choose such as the sofa, chairs or framed mirror may seem too dramatic. But the softness comes from the elegant textiles and decorative accessories you place in and around such items. Just avoid using too many conflicting patterns and shades. Remember, it is a style based on the furnishings and accessories you have rather than the decorating of the room itself. A tired looking wall once cleaned will make the perfect basis for this style. Over time it is a money saving style that matures.
Here are some final pointers to help you achieve this style:
- If you love the frames around some unloved pictures, then empty the frames and use a number of these to create and eye catching arrangement against your pale wall.
- Hanging vintage clothes that you may not wear from the door or picture rail will work at infusing softness to complete your interior look.
- Ceramic or glass wear pieces that you find in second hand shops are an effective look for this style. Grouped together these accessories will enhance your vintage romantic style.
- Be sure to hang or position a shabby chic mirror.
