Often rustic in style, shabby chic decors, like the one pictured below, are designed to create a feeling of nostalgia and warmth in a room. Although they’re most often favoured in bedrooms and bathrooms, there’s nothing to stop you bringing that shabby chic touch to a living room or even the garden! This particular look is best set against a background of either relatively neutral shades of paint or else old-school type patterned wallpaper, topped off with colourful fabrics and carpets.
