Rustic Comfort When creating a shabby chic look, it’s easy to get carried away with accessories, decor and fabrics galore. According to interior designer Lulu Tapp, less is more when it comes to bulky furniture and accessories, especially in a shabby chic design. “Allow for movement throughout the room when adding sofas, chairs and other large pieces of furniture; you should emulate a comfortable feeling throughout the space,” she says. And one of her top pieces of advice: Avoid clutter at all costs. Design and photography by Lulu Tapp of DustyLu Interiors. Room accessories and decor from Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Couture Sweet Mix Re-creating a shabby chic look in your home doesn’t have to be complicated and costly. The style works much better with found objects, vintage furniture and antique-inspired accessories. HGTV fan single_mom_on_a_budget mixes different yet complementary furniture pieces to create a well-balanced and cohesive look with eclectic charm. Minimally Chic RMS user HollyluvsPups created a stunning shabby chic living room with a simple, minimalist approach in mind. As suggested by interior designer Lulu Tapp, she used a subdued palette with subtle hints of pink, sage and blue only visible in the accessories. The most unexpected pop of color comes from the salmon-hued shag area rug across the room. Hints of Europe Although often seen in English homes, shabby chic designs frequently include hints of European style. HGTV fan fleamarkettrixie brought a taste of Paris to her aqua-accented living room through this burlap throw pillow, as well as French country charm in the distressed shutters and weathered decor. Her mix of patterns (floral, polka dot, damask) are all perfectly complementary, preventing a cluttered, overly mismatched look. Shabby Relaxing To keep her neutral and subdued farmhouse from being color-starved, HGTV fan KarlasCottage used a lot of texture and pattern to add interest and depth to each room. “I really wanted a recliner for comfort, but I wanted one to match my style, so I slipcovered it in a variety of fabrics, including old tapestries,” she says. The end result is a perfectly shabby seat with European influences. Sea of Blue Nothing is more refreshing and crisp than the pairing of aqua and white. HGTV fan fleamarkettrixie mixed the blue walls and white sofa with hints of sage and turquoise for a faded yet vibrant look in this soft living room. The distressed vintage shutters may not serve a true purpose, but they look stunning sitting behind the sofa as a simple decorative element. Quaint Space HGTV fan countrycottagegirl admits she is not a minimalist and loves to display her hydrangeas, transferware and collected accessories. Although she’s dealing with a small living space, the shabby chic style instantly turns this room into a cozy retreat. Girlie Decor Bring out your inner girlie-girl with a fabulously floral living room design. HGTV fan Mandii integrated pastel floral patterns on the dresser, rug, pillows, throws, artwork and lampshades. A white slipcovered sofa and loveseat allow the room’s matching rose designs to stand out without removing the sweet eclectic feel of the design. Blush Rose HGTV fan theycallmemartha didn’t leave out a single detail when bringing shabby chic style to her living room. Distressed furniture, slipcovered sofas, floral patterns and an array of pastel hues make this design traditionally shabby. Cottage Inspiration While more modern interpretations of shabby chic couture focus on soft, faded hues and muted tones, more traditional cottage-inspired designs, like this cozy sunroom, use palettes of warm yellow, sage green and salmon pink. While still integrating feminine floral patterns into the mix, stripes, plaid and gingham bring in an eclectic feel with country flair.
