One of my favorite styles is Shabby Chic.Centered around the color shade white, the style combines with soft dreamy floral-patterns, wonderful pastel blues, greens, creamy peach, and delicate pinks.
The concept uses many different types of vintage items such as old furniture, usually in white ” distressed” finish, wrought iron curtain rods with flimsy sheer curtains which can be dyed with tea, luxurious pillows decorated with lace, and of course, plenty of fresh cut flowers.
Shabby Chic or Cottage Style is not rigidly defined, but is achieved through an elegant balance of the old and worn, shiny silver accessories, pearls and other knick knacks, soft snugly furniture and plenty of pillows, vintage glass pieces certainly add to the overall effect.
With all this in mind it is fun to create some Christmas Decor Items such as Stockings. To get some ideas watch this Shabby Chic Christmas Stocking Tutorial.
