The term shabby chic illustrates two elements: worn-out furniture that is stylish at the same time. Shabby chic living room decoration is safe to the environment as it is attained basically by reuse of old furniture and safe to our pockets too.

The most common materials in shabby chic living rooms are furniture with spindle legs and white wicker. This is seen in attractive living room coffee tables, end tables, side tables, plant stands and wood shelves. The main colors used in shabby chic living rooms are light ones such as creamy off whites, pastel blues, soft yellows, pinks and greens. If the color of a furniture item doesn’t match the shabby chic theme, then paint it yourself and distress it with a sand paper. Shabby chic living room lighting is usually provided by crystal chandeliers, white iron, floor lamps or table lamps with vintage lamp shades.
A very vital item in the shabby chic living room is a big white sofa with some floral patterns or some throw pillows with floral patterns. There is no need to spend extra money on buying a new shabby sofa, instead use a shabby chic slipcover on the sofa to really match the living room theme. The flooring of a shabby living room is usually wooden with some floral throw rugs; wooden flooring might not be accessible so throw rugs are enough.
