Shabby Chic

It’s the art of creating harmony between odd bits and pieces from our heritage

Through the eyes of Karine J., décor designer

In a setting filled with plants and gorgeous flowers, a green designer sofa, wallpaper with geometric motives, a well weathered side-table, and vintage metal accessories. Shabby Chic is the art of creating harmony between odd bits and pieces from our heritage. Elegance that zigzags between demure powder pink and bucolic abundance, the audacity of contemporary lines and the charm of recycled, customised pieces.

HERITAGE

Back to our heritage and the furniture that inspires us: from crystal-drop chandeliers to fifties-style chairs.

RECYCLED

Joyfully dig up and rub down our grandparents’ less-than-perfect furniture. Plant seeds in an old, recycled pot for a mini vegetable garden hanging over the balcony.

MIX

Mix and match carpets with prints, squares and big flowers.

GO GREEN

It’s back to nature, colouring our interiors in shades of green, to feel like we live in an English garden.

PINK

A powder-pink headboard and a delicate, romantic posy placed on a small table: elegance is part of you!

PASTELS

Pompoms and fluffy cushions are your allies: choose them in pastel colours.

FLOWERS

Fabric wallpaper with flowers and polka dots and a teapot turned vase create a cosy atmosphere.

FEMININE

The style is truly refined: a touch of gold here, a posy there. Femininity reigns.

GILT

We found an old mirror festooned with faded gilt. Here you are in your English cottage.
