Create Layers Of Texture
Texture is perhaps the single most important element in shabby chic décor. To get the look, layer weathered furnishings and rustic materials with ornate accents and rich, delicate fabrics. If you’ve chosen a simple iron crib frame, dress it with soft and luxurious bedding. Just focus on incorporating rich and varied layers, and you’ll strike the perfect balance.
Decorating a shabby chic nursery is about using old things in new ways. When looking for furniture and accessories, think outside of the box. An elaborate old kitchen hutch might make a terrific dresser! Broken mirror? That beautiful brass frame would still look fabulous on the wall! See what you can rescue and put to good use. An old dresser can easily become a gorgeous dressing table.
