Never has the phrase “everything old is new again” been more apropos. In a world where it’s easy to worship the newest and the shiniest, isn’t it nice to have a few things with some patina, some signs of wear…some authenticity? Like its cousins, Country and Vintage, Shabby Chic looks great by the roomful or by the piece. It means slightly worn linen fabrics, faded pastel colors, peeling finishes and a romantic history, whether real or imagined. Go ahead, choose a vintage hand painted dresser, a rusty garden ornament or a used Tole chandelier.
