While white is the often the predominant color incorporated into a shabby-chic room, other light colors, such as pale blue, light green, soft yellows, and other pastel colors can also be used. Vintage, modern, and contemporary pieces can all be incorporated in a shabby-chic room design.

To create a shabby-chic design in a newly built home, you may need to roughen up your brand-new cabinets.
