20 shabby chic decorative items to adopt urgently

1. A gathered bedspread

We would talk to you about the padded headboard, but to tame the shabby chic style little by little, it is better to start with a nice bedspread. Gathered, pleated, retro and satin, if possible in flesh pink or pastel pink, a cozy wonder to match with a string of satin and velvet cushions in soft colors!

2. A pleated fabric shade

On the shabby chic side, no designer light, but lamps like you would find in a english cottage period ... without falling, either, in the old-fashioned. The right balance? A sleek foot with a fabric shade. And if the fabric is worked, pleated, textured, gathered or ruffled, we choose it in white to avoid overdose!

3. A table mirror

To add a shabby chic note interior decoration without doing too much, we put on a simple and refined decorative object. An old-fashioned, oval and ornate mirror, to be placed on the dressing table, in the bathroom or even on a sideboard like a trinket. And if we find one in chiseled silver or imitation, it's even better.

4. A vintage vase

Search the attic, rob the grandparents' house or walk the flea markets, the shabby style chic is nothing without its vintage vase. Not only is it easy to find, but it transforms a room in two minutes: placed on a pedestal table and filled with fresh or dried flowers, the romantic atmosphere is guaranteed.

5. An oval mirror

here's one shabby chic decorative object very simple which has its small effect, since it is even found at a low price in the collections of decoration giants. Ideally, we choose it in white to soften the retro side. It only remains to hang it and good news, it sublimates both the living room and the master bedroom!

6. A chandelier with pendants

No industrial suspension in a shabby chic decor, the essential fixture is none other than the chandelier with pendants. And no need to empty a bank account to invest in a crystal chandelier, a mottled version or a fake version with plastic pendants, transparent or colored, works just as well!

7. A flowery tea service

all shabby chic atmosphere must have its retro tea service, preferably in white porcelain with small flowers. Since we are talking about English inspirations, after all ... and once again, the service is easy to find in flea markets. As for the purists, they will add a serrated tray, flowers and macaroons to taste it!

8. A bird cage

If the bird cage is a decorative object emblematic of the shabby chic style, it begins to establish itself as ultra-trend even without shabby. All the more reason to crack, especially since it is everywhere and it can be easily transformed, to accommodate flowers or a light garland, placed or hung!

10. A metal watering can

Like the bird cage, the metal watering can is one of these 100% shabby chic objects, easy to find in flea markets or garage sales and even easier to recycle. We repaint it in a pretty pastel color or simply white, we plant a bouquet of flowers or kitchen utensils and we admire it!

11. A lace tablecloth

Lace is THE essential material for a shabby chic interior decor. And if the tablecloth is the easiest option, more modern than the placemat or the curtains, you can also choose a table runner, quite simply. The right idea? We contrast with wood to energize!

12. A satin cushion

On a bed, on the armchair in the reading corner or on the sofa in the living room, a satin cushion is the perfect shabby chic accessory. Especially if it is round, moreover, and even more with pleated effects, tone-on-tone piping and a large button in the middle ... preferably in light shades to lighten the effect!

13. A romantic bedside lamp

To create a shabby chic decor in the bedroom, the romantic bedside lamp is the perfect object. It is found new in the decorative or vintage collections for lovers of China, even if it means replacing the lampshade if necessary ... but again, if the style is worked, we remain sober in color!

14. A shell frame

Difficult to make more kitsch, and more shabby chic, than a retro shell frame. We can even have it made by children on the way back from the beach, by the way. And well staged in the decor, it has its small effect, especially since the lack of shells, we get the same effect with small pearly stones!

15. Enameled metal pots

The enameled metal pots combine a rustic, vintage and romantic effect, which is to say that they make a box in a shabby chic decor. And no need to choose new, those that display a few splashes of paint have even more cachet, as long as they are white or in pastel shades with the inevitable dark border!

16. Vintage candlesticks

Another decorative object that is easy to hunt for or to collect in family boxes. Almost as much as finding new ones in decoration stores, despite its retro look! The shabby candle holders chic work both multibranch and solitary, and you don't even have to turn them on.

17. A pompom cushion

If the velvet cushion is already perfect in a shabby chic interior, it is even more chic with pompoms and trimmings. A beautiful old-style quality cushion, in short, which will easily mix with other inexpensive, floral or satin cushions, to decorate a bed or decorate a sofa.

18. A candy box

They store shells or cookies, cottons or candies, jewelry or rags. The glass candy dish is the perfect decorative object for a discreet shabby chic style and full of sweetness, whether you use it as a trinket or as a storage box!

19. Flower curtains

Okay, you have to love. But when we try to create a shabby chic decor, the curtains printed with small flowers in Liberty English style are the must. And if the curtains are too much, we can always be satisfied with bed linen or even some homemade cushions.

20. A padded headboard

It's a big shabby chic decorative object, okay, but since the upholstered headboard can also be found without the bed that goes with it or even be made in-house, we couldn't zap it. If you don't have a curved retro shape, you can opt for a simple rectangular board covered with foam and stapled fabric!
