Is it the soft, cuddly warm look of Shabby Chic that makes me want to wallow in it? I just want to spread out crisp, soft cotton sheets patterned with tiny roses and clean white pillow cases, whilst a warm summer breeze blows through the pale striped curtains of my open window. Doesn’t it sound fabulous? I love all the little touches of shabby chic, the flowers, the whitewash, the pale and faded hint of long ago… Here are some of the shabby chic I have come across and really loved…
Rustic wood trays with the lovely print in the bottom, just yearns to have trinkets or fruit added to them.
A lovely Mum print sits on a side table...
