Shabby Chic is a term used to describe a style where aged and distressed elements are used to create a rustic, yet soft romantic look.
Typical elements would include painted floors, distressed furniture, crystal, pastel tones, florals, linens, lace and vintage finds. Think French opulence meets English country cottage.
