Understanding Shabby Chic Cottage Style

What makes it shabby? Extremely distressed furniture or accessories? What makes it chic? The vintage chandelier? What merits the "cottage" title? That your decor lives in a small space?


Leon posted on the Barn Furniture Blog answers to our many questions!

Here's one quote I'll paste here for everyone then you can read the rest of his excellent article: "A shabby chic cottage style home is elegant yet casual, romantic, worn and totally inviting. A soft pallet consisting of white, cream, taupe and pastel shades works to create a look that is breezy, light and soft. Furnishings are mildly distressed, and often have a vintage feel."

Leon covers specific tips on the kitchen and bedroom.

The key is to think comfy, worn, vintage, soft in fabric and hues, and natural.

Here's Craig's cottage accessories that fits the bill!

Let me know how you pull this off? Are you into Shabby Chic Cottage Style?
