This gallery of shabby chic decor ideas is sure to inspire you with an eclectic mix of old and new. Bring on that rustic and vintage charm!
Cozy Up to This Beautiful Shabby Chic Corner
We are in love with this pairing and selection of items in a corner of a room. Lace curtains are draped over a beautiful wooden room divider, painted white table, and stepping stool serve for storage and display for candlestick lamps. Dried flower bouquets add just a touch of color.
Shabby Chic Vintage Painted Vanity With Pillar Candles and Orchid
This beautiful vintage vanity offers plenty of shabby chic decor inspiration. The painted dresser complete with decorative mirror adds a bit of shabby charm to any room, although of course this would be ideal for a bedroom or even hallway area.
Using pillar candles and taper candles, it creates a nice balance of vertical interest in pairing with the orchids and dried branches and accentuates the height of the mirror.
A sheer panel curtain draped over the top of the two drawer dresser adds a bit of romantic whimsy.
The mix of different materials used for the candle stands and other accessories add a nice touch for adding color and combining wood and metal. Love those pops of bright pink from the use of the orchids!
Shabby Decor Abounds!
How cute are these white painted chairs with wicker wreaths, hearts, and basket with a candle luminary inside?
What Room is Complete Without a Bird Cage?
Vintage wire bird cages make for beautiful hanging accents – just add your choice of artificial flowers!
We also love the room divider in the background with roses!
Lace is always Nice
This lace pillowcase in the bedroom adds a lot of charm and perfectly accents the rustic metal bed frame.
Decorate With a Suitcase…or Two…Or Three!
Shabby Chic Decorating With Plants
Dried Floral Arrangements in Rustic and Vintage Inspired Containers can quickly add a little bit of shabby chic charm to any type of decor style!
Watering Can as a Vase
Bring the outdoors inside with a Watering Can to hold an artificial flower bouquet for low maintenance – or, you of course can always choose to use real blooms of your choice!
Vintage Cream/Milk Pitcher
Milk and cream containers also work well for displaying artificial or fresh cut floral blooms. Carnations and roses make for a great choice. Add a softening touch to your decor by using a cloth napkin or a folded table runner underneath the pitcher.
Vintage Milk Bottles and Dried Eucalyptus Branches
Dried eucalyptus branches are placed above in vintage milk bottle containers – a very minimalistic yet elegant approach to your vintage shabby decor!
Add Artificial Flowers to a Fireplace Mantel
If you have a decorative fireplace front, painting it white and placing candles in the bottom part can be a nice touch also! Artificial flower arrangements can make your fireplace a nice eye catching centerpiece in any room.
Use Wire Mesh to Create a Trellis Wall Display for Vines
In this photo below, wire mesh is hung on the wall to give the potted vine a place to grow and spread.
Beautiful Bedroom Ideas
Adding elements of shabby chic decor to the bedroom is a great way to create a soft romantic and elegant touch to your space.
This minimal shabby chic bedroom design features a white iron bed frame, modern traditional furniture, a shabby vintage inspired metal frame and a beautiful sheer curtain hanging above the bed to add some romance and softness to the room.
Accessories included on the bookshelf and dresser include a mix of soft white accents. And did you see that beautiful rustic candle display next to the bed?
Here is another view of the bedroom and canopy. The wire basket chandelier is another nice touch to adding the style in the bedroom.
Another Example of Minimal Creative Reuse
This bedroom is not technically “shabby chic”, but you can see many design elements that you can use as inspiration for your shabby chic bedroom decor. We love the creative reuse of an old electric wire spool which serves as a nightstand bedside table.
Some of our favorite features of this room:
- Wooden crates at the foot of the bed
- Wooden crates stacked to be used as a nightstand bedside table
- Wire spool used as a bedside table
- A wire basket with a clipboard
- Metal Clothes Hanger to Showcase favorite vintage clothing out in the open
- White wicker baskets on a modern bookshelf
- Metal pails used as succulent containers on the modern book shelf
