Shabby-chic style is all about crisp whites, reclaimed woods and plenty of florals. It’s traditional, yet with a touch of eclectic, bohemian style that comes through in knick-knacks and vintage finds. This cozy look is perfect for the living room, so if you’re looking for shabby-chic ideas to use in your own home, allow the following tips and photos to guide you.

1. A Comfy White Sofa

Anchor the room with a soft white sofa that’ll invite you to plop right down and relax. Shabby-chic living room furniture should look elegant, but welcoming and not too fancy.

2. Floral Decor

Flowers are the perfect accent piece in a shabby-chic style space, whether you prefer blush-colored roses, lilacs or green hydrangeas. Silk flowers go great with this look, so don’t worry about always having a fresh bouquet.

3. A Vintage Armchair

Add character to your living room with a vintage armchair — think an old country look with scrolled legs and French toile-patterned upholstery.

4. A Splash of Blue

Light pink tends to get all the attention when it comes to shabby-chic decor, but light blue is equally as striking, if not more. Use a Tiffany or robin’s egg blue in a rug, on your living room walls or even for your coffee table finish.

5. Ornate Wall Decor

If you’re on the hunt for shabby-chic living room wall decor, go for slightly over-the-top pieces that’ll give your space plenty of eclectic style. Ornately-framed mirrors, bouquets of dried herbs or a collection of traditional China plates all work well.

6. Dramatic Curtains

Go for a bit of flair with dramatic, gauzy curtains in gray or white. You want to keep things feeling light and airy, so linen also works well here.

7. A Whimsical Chandelier

Decorating your living room in shabby-chic style practically requires that you hang a chandelier. Whether you prefer wood or metal varieties, go for one that’s got a rustic white finish and plenty of crystals.

8. Repurposed Objects

Just like its farmhouse-style cousin, a shabby-chic look benefits from plenty of repurposed objects to give off that lived-in feeling. Use a chest for your coffee table, a galvanized metal bucket to hold fireplace tools or a watering can for flowers.
