Understand the style: Subtle Shabby Chic

When you hear the term ‘Shappy Chic’ you imagine painted furniture in pale colours, distressed materials, worn out fabrics, all in light colours like lilac, off-whites, and pastels. However, there are many people around the world who would like to incorporate this interior decorating style but in darker and more subtle tones to fit their personality or style.
Here are some tips on how to master the art of dark shabby chic decorating:

1. Lighting

• Choose lamps with solid woods base in more muted paint colours.
• Exchange the light lamp shades with darker fabrics from the same colour family.
• Nothing says shabby chic like a massive chandelier. Choose ornate chandeliers in coloured glass, brass or copper.
