Shabby chic

1 START WITH A WHITE BACK­DROP

Let her­itage pieces and one-off finds sing by keep­ing the walls fresh and neu­tral. It’ll max­imise light and take the over­all ef­fect from calm to clut­tered, too.

2 CHOOSE TRA­DI­TIONAL FUR­NI­TURE STYLES

This look isn’t ag­gres­sively mod­ern – stick to wooden pieces and farm­house-style finds.

3 GO FOR SIM­PLE FAB­RICS AND SCUFFED FIN­ISHES

The nat­u­rally dis­tressed na­ture of li­nen, jute and chalk paint will all help to pull off that ef­fort­less, un­done look.
