Do you love the shabby chic look but don’t know where to start? Stuart Wylie are here to show you just how simple bringing the design to your home can really be!

Shabby chic is one of the most popular trends in the decorating market and has been known to bring luxury and budget together. If, like many in the Essex area, you are looking for the luxury element of shabby chic, you are in the right place with our professional team.

Colours Are Key

According to The Cambridge Independent, shabby chic is one of the biggest trends for 2017 and keeping old tables to upgrade them into new items is the way forward in interior design.

Recycling the ‘old’ for new is a sure fire way of creating a shabby chic design.

The most traditional design of shabby chic is basing your rooms around a white colour scheme and adding in pastel shades, soft colours and textures for the ultimate shabby chic design. “Although white is a key element of the style, soft pastel colours such as sky blue or pale pink also contribute to the look”. Some of the most popular colours that our team have worked with include duck egg blue, champagne pinks and soft lilacs to add a touch of softness to any harsh white room.

Mix and Match

With shabby chic you are allowed free movement of mixing and matching key details. If you like that chair but it doesn’t match the sofa, who cares?! Get it and make sure you add a quilted throw to incorporate the same colour scheme throughout and it will fit right in!

The same goes for patterns throughout your home. Although many may think that shabby chic means strictly white, roughed up woods and reclaimed furniture, you can have as many patterns and colours as you like – as long as it looks inviting and not scary!
