Then hang the floral paintings or mirrors with an antiquing look. Create small contrasts with strong colors, buying sofas, armchairs, in shades of fuchsia or purple, over which you can lay discolored or slightly yellowed fabrics to give a unique touch to your home.

Beautify your hallway or living room with a small and delicately painted table; in this way you’ll create a touch of sophistication.

Also add personal touches such as floor covering with simple foot mats from natural fabrics. The room will look charming, bohemian and will delight your guests and friends. A string of pearls hanging from the corner of your bedroom bed, a soft frilly pillow, a mirror with a frame with vintage look, a lamp sitting on the bedside table are just some of the details that will give originality your home shabby chic.


As decorations, you can use porcelain dolls, fine cups, little embellished boxes, slightly antique clocks and beautifully painted vases filled with natural flowers or bouquets of roses or peonies.
