Home Decor:  French and Shabby Chic

Will I ever get tired of looking at french/shabby chic/vintage/country styled home decor? I sure hope not. It’s just so darn beautiful and appealing to me. The typography, paint colors, worn patina, and natural elements draw me in like a bee to honey.

When you love this style of home decor like I do, there’s a benefit to be had. Know what it is? You can decorate in a shabby chic style without spending a lot of money. For example:  last year I overhauled a free lamp that feisty hubby brought home. It cost under $20 in materials and a couple of hours of my time. I wish I had more time {and energy} to engage in crafty endeavors such as this–don’t you?

If you don’t have the time, but you do have the money, you can always buy your french/shabby chic/vintage/country styled home decor. There are many affordable pieces that can be found in thrift shops and online. I’ve rounded up a few of my recently discovered online faves below.

Let’s get started. 

All country inspired homes need a rooster in their house…don’t you think?

If you have a rooster, there should be a farmhouse style dining table nearby. Seriously. It’s an unspoken requirement ;).

A true francophile always has one or more grain sac pillows on hand . The words should be written in french.

Did someone say “Avoir de siège {have a seat}?”

While you’re sitting, feel free to prop your feet  up. This sturdy farmhouse table can take it.

Is it so wrong to just sit and gaze at the ceiling? The chandelier shines just right in the morning sun.

 Time for bed already? I’m having so much fun though….

I hope you’ve enjoyed the journey as much as I have. While you’re here, tell me, which item is your favorite?
