Remembering old days: Shabby Chic

The older, the better! This is the motto of the Shabby Chic Style where furnishings are chosen for their age or sometimes painted with many layers to achieve time-worn areas. This style is meant to look welcoming and comfortable, the main colour is white. Due to Designer Rachel Ashwell the term has become very popular in the 1980s. What makes the Shabby Chic Style also very unique is that you can use items for a different purpose than they were intended to be, for example you can use an antique trunk for a dining room table.

  2. Ja, das stimmt....ich mag diesen Stil auch sehr gerne, da viel Wert auf Kleinigkeiten gelegt wird. Aber man muss auch sehr viel stöbern, um solche Dinge zu finden....lg
