Shabby Chic Explained

White walls are a traditional feature in Shabby Chic design. They offer a wonderful backdrop for the muted pastels commonly used. Bold colors are not a good fit for Shabby Chic, as the main goal is a soft, romantic look. Consider a white-flocked holiday tree with lightly colored ornaments and some vintage seasonal relics. Use gilded vintage mirrors to reflect the décor and go with airy floral fabrics. You can use decorative pillows with ruffles, ribbons, and distressed furniture of all styles. Vintage quilts and patchwork with raw hems add to the quaint imperfection of this style. Use ornate lighting with lamps and chandeliers to instill an aesthetic glow in your space.

Hunter Douglas Roman Shades for a Whimsical Effect

The soft, puffy folds of Roman-style shades are a sure fit for a Shabby Chic look. They add a feminine touch, which is classic of the chic style. Vignette® Modern Roman Shades are one of the most popular shades from Hunter Douglas. They are available in both 4” full and 6” flat folds and in various opacities from sheer to room-darkening. As for style options, you can select from either a rolling or stacking shade. You can select from various fabrics, such as silk or tweed, depending on your preference. For a soft look, consider an interesting print so that when your shade is lowered, it will add to the overall quaintness of your Shabby Chic aesthetic. With DuoLite® Innovation, you can enjoy daytime privacy while enjoying light and nighttime privacy. This feature houses a light-filtering sheer and a room-darkening opaque liner on a single roller. These shades can be cut to fit a variety of window and door types and shapes, including circles, ovals, arches, French and patio doors, and more.
