Wrought iron shabby chic
Shaping up your home the shabby chic way
The vintage, cosy Parisian town look suits interiors regardless of their size which means it’s really versatile. It’s also easy to achieve on a budget. So, think wrought iron bed frames, floral, kitch prints, wooden venetian blinds and stripped floorboards, and you’re good to go!
Waxed, stripped wooden floorboards are perfect for this theme. If you’re in the process of redecorating and have been considering a carpet – don’t. Shabby chic is all about worn in wooden floor boards so rip up your carpet and you’ll instantly notice the difference.
If you want to try something a bit different, give your floorboards a white wash – don’t worry about ensuring that every crack is painted, it’s supposed to look rustic! Bear in mind though, if you’re going to use a whitewash for the floor, don’t use too much cream furnishing throughout the same room as white and cream will just clash.
