Deborah von DonopI have always liked the Shabby Chic that Rachel Ashwell created! When I think of shabby chic, I think of beauty and comfort with washable fabrics in linen, denim, and velvet in a color pallet of whites, pinks, and soft sun-kissed floral prints fabrics. Creating a shabby chic home is one that is livable for your family and made warm with a combination of heirlooms for your sanctuary.
Over the years, shabby chic has embodied many styles. It is an eclectic mix of rustic, traditional and modern accented by flea market collections and sprinkled with romantic. A room with soul and no boundaries, unified by colors, textures, and is livable.
Shabby chic is a style with soul and very few period principles or boundaries. From the sun-kissed colors to the modern shapes blended with family heirlooms that have a patina, it is a creation of sanctuary, a place to renew yourself that draws me to this design more than any other style.

Carla AstonSlipcovers are a mainstay of this look. I love a more tailored (no ruffles) washable linen look for slipcovers and feel they will be a timeless and adaptable option for upholstered furnishings. Although tailored, I do like the slipcover to be a bit long, so that it lies on the ground about 1-2".
Painted flea market furniture is another signature of this style. An old chair, a dresser, anything with some carving and details typically works. I’m personally not a huge chalk paint fan, as I prefer my painted wood in a satin finish or as a whitewash applied over wood to tint the piece and show the grain.
Rose printed fabrics are actually coming back in style these days and are no longer viewed as simply shabby chic or vintage. Soft colors contribute to the feminine look in a shabby chic style.

Shabby chic is the vintage classic with a contemporary twist. All-embracing the old is the gold concept, with soft, harmonious colors and adding splashes of style to suit the personal character.
My Top tips:
1. Use a neutral base colour and build up colours around that to give a more dynamic effect.
2. When creating the scheme of furniture, have a key piece that stands out and the eye is visually drawn to. And then add other pieces to compliment and blend with that one.
3. When these two points have been brought together. The soft furnishings and wall art can really enhance the effect. That adds depth and interest to this shabby chic concept.
