The shabby-chic style draws you in because it’s so interesting. It includes a collection of furnishings and accent pieces that paints a unique picture of you and your interests. That makes it a more personal and intimate decor than most other kinds. It may include a treasured find from last year’s vacation along with your grandmother’s dining room set.

It’s unique and decidedly feminine. The overall theme embodies comfort. This is the room where you want to savor and enjoy a meal. You won’t find the cold elements of the industrial style here. Rather, it overlaps eclectic, cottage, and perhaps country too. It lacks the formality of the Victorian decor but retains its class among the collection of objects.

Does that sound like a style you could live with? Take a look at our collection of shabby-chic-style dining room design ideas in our gallery for more inspiration on creating your ideal look.

Shabby-Chic Defined

Shabby-chic distinguishes itself from other styles by its unique character. It isn’t something you’ll find in a catalog. Rather, it’s something that evolves over time. You could call it a living memory book. It offers an excellent option if you don’t want to lay down a lot of cash for a formal dining room set. The chairs don’t even need to match if you don’t have enough for the table.

This style has its following, though it’s not overly popular. Less than 1 percent of dining rooms have this decor.

Color Scheme

The palette of this style embraces neutral shades of gray, beige, and cream. Pastels work well with this look too. The goal is to create a restful place for the eyes. Bright and loud colors have no place here. They would be too distracting. Patterns are good choices too, especially charming ones like gingham and toile. They’ll add to the interest of the room.

Upholstery and Furniture

You can capture this style with dining room chairs that are upholstered in natural fabrics like linen and cotton. The key is the comfort. Stick with softer textures. You can also follow this theme visually with furniture that shows some wear. It will add to the casual mood of your dining room. After all, you certainly want to encourage your guests to linger.

Lighting

Lighting options are practical but not garish in keeping with the setting. Pendant lights or wall sconces offer good options. Make sure that you choose warm-colored light bulbs. Metals such as bronze and copper work well with this style because they add to the inviting feel of your dining room. Decorative fixtures are fine but avoid anything too outlandish.
