Decorating In White For Clean And Simple Shabby Chic

Spread the love

The term shabby chic conjures up a lot of different images depending on how you want to combine the shabby and chic elements.  It can be quite simple to let the color white be the clean and chic portion and combine different textures and surfaces to come up with the shabby.

Decorating in white, in this way, is probably one of my favorite ways to define the shabby chic style.  I have several examples, in different areas of the home, to inspire you with your own decorating.

Some of the examples are all white but the majority are combined with very light neutrals which adds just the right amount of interest.

I love the wood, wicker and burlap accents to go along with all of the white.

Even though this room is decorated in all white, all of the different textures add a big wow factor.

This bedroom is completely chic and dreamy.

A touch of light aqua is so striking when the majority of the room is white.

Here is a more modern take on some rustic elements mixed with the clean white palette.

Look how well the shabby accessories stand out against all of that white!  I just love how that Bakery sign pops.

There is just something so soothing about this display.  The cabinet with the distressed white paint is a great contrast against the smooth bright white wall paint.

If you don’t want to do a whole room in white, small space or vignettes look great in an all white theme.

I'm addicted to crafting and decorating my downtown urban loft and up north rustic cabin. Read more about me.

  1. I just love all white rooms with distressed pieces. If I were able, I would do every room in some shade of white. Love your posts.
