Spring Decor Idea #5 - Spring into Shabby Chic
While some trends die a quick death, others linger, get stronger, appear in home and garden magazines for a number of years, and just don’t seem to date. The home décor trend 'shabby chic’ is one of those trends.
Where previously old pieces of furniture were thrown in the trash, interior decorators and those looking to change up their home décor are specifically looking for these worn and tired pieces. Shabby chic furniture consists of aged, worn, or near-broken furniture that’s showing signs of better days. It either already is in this condition or is a new piece that has been distressed to appear old.
Such is the strength of this trend that opulent, soft, cottage-style wood furniture can be found in almost every book of spring décor ideas. Shabby chic furniture may just create a sense of spring in your home.
It won't be long until the dark and gloomy days of winter are replaced with the crisp and colourful mornings of Spring. With the official start of Spring set to March 20, there’s no time like the present to try out any of these spring décor ideas and get the ball rolling.
