Shabby Chic is a style of decoration that was created in 1980 by Rachel Ashwell, who found charm and beauty at the flea market and restored it. She started giving modern ordinary objects a weathered and aged look to give them that charming look. We keep sharing ideas for those of you who are enchanted by this style and want to recreate it at home. Today we're going to look at how to create a dining room or dining area in a shabby chic style. It's not as difficult as you might think. The basic principles of decor are the same as for any other shabby chic room. Let's look at them.
Go neutrals and pastels
Shabby chic builds on a white background, but there are plenty of shades of white to work with. As for dining areas, usually everyone prefers to work all in white with just a hint of flowers or cream tones. Mixing lighter whites with aged whites is fine. You can add pastel colors - dusty, muted, and light blue, pink, sage green, cream, buttermilk, and any other shades you want to create a look you want.
Textures and layers
Textures and layers will make your shabby dining room interesting and eye-catching, not plain and boring. Layer weathered or aged furniture and rustic materials with ornate accents and rich, delicate fabrics. Use shabby chic metal with a vintage feel. Incorporate lace, floral textiles, add crystal chandeliers or lamps for a French landscape feel.
Combine shabby chic furniture
Gather all of your flea market items, old found objects and other things and give them a new life according to the shabby chic interior you want to get. Try to figure out the look before doing this in order to properly combine the furniture. Use whitewashing, aging, and weathering techniques. Tinkering some furniture and other items yourself will give you a cheap look.
Find the right shabby chic accessories
Shabby chic is all about accessories. So choose them carefully to suit your ambience. If you can't find one, just search for tutorials on the internet and do whatever you like with old things. Wall art pieces, statuettes, fabric art, lamps, and other things can be easily hacked or renovated to match the shabby chic style.
