Editor’s Note: Lighting is a unique, personal form of decoration. Another lighting designer wrote about Shabby Chic Chandeliers. Every designer seems to have a different slant on every style and fixture. So read as much as you can. You'll find your own unique style.

Shabby Chic Design

Shabby Chic is a form of interior design that proudly shows its signs of age, wear and tear like a badge of honor! Nothing new, shiny or flawless is used in this style of decorating.

Shabby Chic Kitchen

Heavily painted thought the years with wood showing through is the desired look for these pieces. With lighting you can use pendants in weathered whites, pinks, light green and blues. Use lighting with roses! There will be no confusion which vibe you’re going for with roses!

The style emerged in Great Britain in the early 1900’s with large country houses where the fabrics are faded and, paintwork is old and worn which became unassuming good taste.

Today's Shabby Chic

Shabby Chic became popular in the 1980’s when recycling old furniture and fabrics became very chic! This was a very economical way for modern Bohemians to fashionably decorate.
