Shabby Chic Dining Room

Are you like me ?
Just LOOOOVE this White Classic Shabby Chic Style
yes I call it Classic Shabby Chic Style because I think there is differences
in the Shabby Style.
Like -take these t different images  I presents, all of them goes under the same seach Shabby Chic Dining Room.
The *mother* of Shabby Chic- Dining Room at Raschel Aswell

This two pictures below are more like kitchen dining rooms..but 
I think they show the different quit well , Imagine these furniture where still in their original paint..
what would you call them?
Country Style?..
..but since they are painted White, they called Shabby Chic.

What is Shabby Chic ?
  • Well, if you like Bold primary colors Shabby Chic is NOT for you .
    And..Shabby Chic does NOT mean you can have more dirty around you.
    Nor is the age of the furniture that is importent , it is the way their appearance.

    Shabby Chic is no particular a STYLE ,but ratcher balances elegant things with old and worn,shiny silver accessories with painted wooden furniture.

How to make the look.

1, White painted furniture
Collect pieces from flea markets, garage sales, and the attic. Spray with the white paint,sand off the corners and rough it up a little. Voila- You have Shabby Chic
2,Soft delicate color
Softwhite, muted grey,pale pink and faded green ,all have a place in a Shabby Chic Interior Home. 
3, Tea stained fabrics
To give the illusion of age, collect fabrics made to look old if you dont have a grandmothers place to find some treasures
4,Combine pattern & Colors
Keep the background color the same (white,ivory,grey etc) and combinde stripes,floral and checks so create a warm and inviting look. Then choose One color to repeat in almost every farics, such as a soft green or pale pink.

    Vackra miljöer! Jag tycker inte allt shabby chic är så värst chic men detta var fint. Klassiskt shabby chic var ett bra uttryck för att visa skillnaden.

    I like the examples of shabby chic that you have used here. it is explained well for anyone who wants to go shopping for furniture and wants to get the look. I like that you also explained that several muted shades can be used, including green and grey. Ideal for people who have small children.

    i like the shabby chic concept. I don't like bold colors as well. Most of the furniture is my house is white in color. Is shabby chic a familiar concept in furniture industry?

    Shabby chic has been around forever its the Simplicity with a splash of soft color we are going back too.
    Think of the times in the past for many it was to get by and it worked then and it works now. However it's a simple but romantic clean softness with sturdy wood, real wood, furniture (or greatly impersonated) and appreciated more and more. The world can be so very busy so it's easy to say when you are in you on place or space you enjoy the tranquil clean brightness with your very on hand picked colors to accent...enjoy because again it is timeless:) Well that's one of the ways I can see it best:) thank you Belleshoneysuckles
