What comes to mind when you hear the phrase “shabby chic living room”? Usually it means girly pastels and lots of lace, and maybe even dated or old-fashioned. If you don’t like rustic or chalk paint furniture, you may think that a shabby chic living room isn’t for you. But with a bit of mixing and matching and a lot of thinking out of the box, shabby chic living room ideas have adapted to current trends of the time. Don’t believe me? Read on and I’ll convince you!
Just because it’s called shabby chic doesn’t mean your room has to be dark or totally rustic. Contrast your rustic and shabby pieces with white walls, floors, and other furniture!

Shabby chic design isn’t totally dependent on pastel colors. If your personality and taste are bolder, bright colors will work too! Capture a shabby chic look by picking elaborate or detailed prints, as well as a few rustic furniture pieces.

Now this is a version of shabby chic I can get behind. The cozy cloth furniture and vintage and rustic furniture supply the shabby, while the almost all-white space provide the chic. It’s such a calming space, don’t you agree?
