Transform the look of any bedroom with shabby chic pillows and shams. From the beginning, this uniquely romantic and feminine style created by Rachel Ashwell was well received and continues to gain worldwide popularity. The concept is to pair rustic, distressed furniture with soft colored fabrics in prints like toile, paisley, and floral designs. The combination of these two extremes is what is commonly known as Shabby Chic. Companies like Peacock Alley and The Well Dressed Bed carry prints that exemplify this design esthetic these collections include shabby chic throw pillows. If your look is more French Country, chose colors like light blue or light yellow in a paisley or toile print.
For a cottage feel try ikat or floral prints. Whatever print you do chose, make sure to go with an abundance of shabby chic pillows to amp up the look and give it a most cozy feel. Companies like Waverly, Croscill, and the Design Guild have many options to choose from when it comes to shabby chic throw pillows. If you are not sure how to combine eclectic distressed furniture pieces, with decorative pillows or sofa and couch pillows doing a search online for shabby chic pillows and decor will show you examples of how to pull the look together. In a rustic setting with white washed wood furniture, try light grey or light blue hued toile printed fabrics set against a white background. Women and young girls of any age will find this design esthetic to be suiting. Whether your bedroom has a twin, twin xl, full, queen, or king sized mattress, there are many options for bedding with this theme. Feel like a princess or a queen in a soft and fluffy comforter with matching shabby chic pillows. Consider putting up light colored sheer panelled curtains to fill the room with light and warmth. Choose silk cords to tie back the curtains when you want to let in full light. Under the bed storage is a perfect way to keep accent pillows and extra linens out of sight. Hardwood floors topped with soft edge rugs are in keeping with the look. Buying quality bed linens that will only get softer over time is very much in accordance with this soft and feminine style. Reading online peer reviews of shabby chic pillow shams and which companies linens stand the test of time will help you to make the most informed choices before purchasing. As long as you keep in mind that this look is achieved by using cozy and romantic detailed fabrics, you cannot go wrong, especially when oversized shabby chic pillows are placed in abundance on top of your comforter or quilt. Choose matching or complementary colors to complete the look and consider delicate details that will give the look a very embraceable quality.
