We love shabby chic style – mixing elegant things with old and worn, celebrating the patina of life. As a wedding style, shabby chic lends itself well to personal interpretation and taste. Whether going for the full shabby look, or simply incorporating a distressed element or two, this design style is a wonderful way to include family heirlooms in your wedding celebration and involve family members in the search for unique and meaningful pieces.
In general, shabby chic combines pastel colors with lots of white and uses vintage, distressed and unusal items to create a warm and inviting vibe. We put together this shabby chic table for our Cedarwood design open house using mis-matched glass, antique bottles, a distressed white bird cage and a vintage crocheted table overlay with a light pink linen. Patterned papers and pencils added texture and provided a platform for guests to write wishes for the bride and groom.
Cedarwood has lots of shabby chic items to incorporate into tabletop decor along with your personal collection. Of course, don’t forget to ask your grandmother, she may very well have some great stuff to add!
