47,290 Shabby-Chic Style Home Design Ideas

Shabby-chic style design embodies a soft, relaxed, feminine feel, inspired by cottage-like elements. It’s well-known for distressed, antique-looking furniture combined with light and airy textiles that bring comfort and character to a space. Homes that are decorated in a shabby-chic style are inviting and bright, blending layers of unique furniture and mismatched decor to create a personal and cohesive feel with a touch of romance.

Shabby-chic style decorating typically uses a muted color palette of white, cream and ivory with hints of pastel blue and pink throughout, bringing an overall charming tone to any space. The furniture will generally have a weathered appearance, making it look older and worn-in, while plenty of vintage floral patterns, ticking stripes and small scale prints add a softer element to the picture. Combining aged pieces with clean and updated walls, window treatments and fabrics will help to balance out the space so it doesn’t feel just plain old. Ornate light fixtures, hardware and accessories are commonly found throughout shabby-chic style homes, and fabrics are typically cottons, linens and muslins, with accents of lace and eyelet. Other shabby-chic style decor features include beadboard walls, slipcovers and collections of antique objects, as well as outdoor rose gardens.

Cottage chic kitchen photo in Santa Barbara with a farmhouse sink, glass-front cabinets, white cabinets, wood countertops and white backsplash

Embracing the vintage, and her love for Shabby Chic style, this coastal beach client wanted to retain her original stove, as well as her original kitchen cabinets. We also kept all her vintage china and old appliances. We removed the old tile counter and backsplash, and replaced them with a butcherblock countertop from IKEA, and beadboard backsplash. The farmhouse sink and bridge faucet and vintage style chandelier were also purchased for the new space. Since my client doesn't use the old stove very often, she opted for no hood above the stove. The breakfast nook is quite tiny yet still suitable for morning breakfasts for two.
