shabby chic entryway decor
We continue to discuss shabby chic rooms full of charm and beauty, and today we're taking a look at shabby chic entrances and corridors. Decorating a shabby chic entrance or hallway is actually the same as any other room, but you may need a few tricks as this room is usually tiny but should be functional and stylish at the same time.
Colors and patterns for a shabby chic hallway or entrance
White, cream, buttermilk, all kinds of neutrals and pastel colors are welcome here! If it's a tiny hallway, avoid bold touches and go for whitewashing. You can try stenciling walls, choosing floral textiles or wallpaper, adding rustic accents with pieces of warm wood, burlap or cord. Rustic and shabby chic styles mix very well and look great.
Furniture for a shabby chic hallway or entrance
Since this space is often small, you should be laconic and choose practical, yet stylish furniture. You may need a console, storage bench, a couple of shelves or racks. Look out for the large, vintage-framed mirrors, they can look the whole thing up. Find these pieces at the flea market or in your grandmother's house and renovate them to match your interior. White, age or paint them pastel colors, distressing is another cool idea that is characteristic of the shabby chic style. Such an approach will save your budget because DIY is inexpensive and you will decorate your entrance area inexpensively.
Accessories and decorations for a shabby chic hallway or entrance area
An entrance is often the first room a guest sees in your home, so it should make an impression. Choose the right accessories, even if there isn't a lot of space, you can always find something cool. The accessories here can add some details of other styles, for example rustic style - choose baskets, jugs instead of vases, antlers and other things. If you want something a little more sophisticated, try French chic and go for a crystal chandelier, some floral and lace textiles, and chic vintage lamps.
