Shabby chic decoration is the epitome of everything vintage, elegant and, dare we say, feminine.
This style of decoration, which mixes vintage-looking, often distressed pieces with adorned, frilly elements is a lot of girls’ and women’s dream, and it is definitely something that is right on trend at the moment.
There is more than one interpretation of shabby chic, obviously, but for the most part, the style is defined by a countryside chic aesthetic, with pastel or neutral tones in the background and accents of exposed brick or wood in the structural pieces. Ornate and detailed fabrics and pieces – both functional and decorative – top it all off and give it the finishing touch that makes the style recognizable.
There is a balance to be achieved when decorating a shabby chic dining room, as the room still needs to remain functional and enjoyable for when you have any guests over. Going for distressed or upcycled tables and chairs is a good idea, as it will instantly set the atmosphere of the room, as will a vintage chandelier over the table.
These are just some suggestions though; the following gallery will give you a better idea of how to turn your dining room into a shabby chic sanctuary.
