“Shabby but romantic”: shabby chic is a style of life. A new way to show the story of the objects we have around and a new way to perceive the reality. Everything comes to a new life: you just need creativity, inspiration, romantic feeling, some pale colors and a touch of vintage style!

In shabby chic weddings a sophisticated yet cottage-style décor with a great dose of feminine feel is emphasized to differentiate it from genuine period décor.

Birds, green and new life is the theme of another wedding! Musk and vintage bird cages are the protagonists!! The Bird cages are very often used in shabby chic weddings, they can be filled with flowers for the table centerpieces, or hang them around the room at different heights to decorate the venue. Put a candle in them. Decorate them with clip on butterflies!

The Shabby Chic style started in Great Britain and evokes the type of decoration found in large country houses where there are worn and faded old sofas and curtains and old paintwork . The original shabby chic interiors were usually considered in themselves works of art and was based on the recycle of old furniture and fabrics!

Shabby chic items are often heavily painted through the years, with many layers showing through obviously time-worn areas. Fabrics are usually cottons and linens with pale colors and with small flowers on it. Fabric is often stained with tea to give it the look of old fabric. Bleached, faded and handmade are the key words of this style!

What awesome touches to all of the weddings that you showcase. Each one of them has so many elements that if I were to get married again and have that dream wedding, it would be ridiculous in the vintage/shabby chic departments. It is the most romantic style that I know.

I am looking for a vntiage pink sewing basket for my young granddaughter. Did I mention Pink, with lots of lace, pearls, etc want it too look very femine and pink and beautiful for her.Do you have anything? Or would consider creating anything?
