♥  Shabby Chic…

Create your shabby chic look with gently worn edges, soft cottons and linens, inspired by fabrics of yesteryear. A great shabby chic look is to mix old and new, an eclectic look of vintage or antique furniture in soft off white’s distressed corners and worn areas of greater use, mixed with chintz fabrics and soft furnishings.

The Shabby chic style started in Great Briton and evokes the type of decoration found in old country houses, where worn pretty fabrics and old paintwork were embraced.  The overall effect of shabby chic is to create elegance. Our shabby chic accessories section has some lovely examples of this.

The modern day shabby chic has taken inspiration in forms of decoration from 18th century painted Swedish furniture, the French château,shabby_image3.jpg to the American shakers where simplicity and plainness was essential.

We like to think of shabby chic being stylish rather than fashionable. It’s a relaxed way of living that looks comfortable and inviting making it feel like home.

♥  Shaker… shaker_image1.jpg

A simple clean line design created by members of the shaker religious group.  The shaker style originated in America in the mid 1770,s, who built items according to their belief that the beauty of the object was found in its usefulness.

The shakers believed that every object in the home should have a function. Whatever is fashioned “let it be plain and simple and for the good” and “beauty rest on utility” are 2 of their favourite sayings.

Often using a thin wash of colour with a limited palate or just natural materials the shaker style is easy to recognize. Our Shaker accessories section has some examples of this.

The shaker style was influenced by American folk art. Folk art is the decorative tradition of rural communities and varies from region to region.  Wherever the shakers settled they picked up some of the qualities of these traditions, for example their simple wooden toys, rose painted boxes and rag dolls are similar to New England Styles.

♥ Country style... country_image1.jpg

The basic purpose of country style interiors is to have your home reflect the simplicity of nature, conveying an atmosphere that’s relaxing and homely, bringing the outdoors indoors with a posy of flowers, a natural twig heart or a lavender wreath. Our Decorative Country Accessories section has a variety of products to enhance this style in your home.
country_image2.jpg The great advantage of modern country living is being able to mix old and new furniture being painted or natural wood to give an eclectic look.  Country style is the use of wide plank flooring, painted tongue and groove walls, thick country pine tables, rocking chairs and three legged stools.
 

Painted pine dressers and furniture passed down through generations of family’s make the country style practical and hard wearing.

Use country style accessories to enhance the look and most of all enjoy the country living style by bringing a piece of the country into your home.
