Shabby Chic, My very favorite!!!!

As you may or may not have realized from my name, I am a huge fan of the Shabby Chic decor! When I first started doing research on interior design, I never had one set style in my mind, just lots of things thrown haphazardly together. Then one day I stumbled upon a book called "Shabby Chic" by Rachel Ashwell, and then everything changed.

I am in LOVE with this design style. Everything about it is wonderful! Not only is it a way to make your home beautiful but it's also a way of life, even a philosophy. Re-use the old, there is beauty in the worn. So it is appropriately called shabby chic. Another amazingly wonderful thing about Shabby Chic is how it makes you feel as if you are in a beautiful cottage on the french country side, full of luxury and relaxation. For all you know you could be in Jersey, but the interior will make you feel like a queen! Uh! It's just so amazing!

I'm not sure you understand how much I love this, to give you an idea of the extent of my obsession; I will never love a man as much as I love this Luxurious Decorating Style. I'm dead serious.

Anyway....Now that I've probably alienated anyone reading this, I think I'll give you some pictures that I feel really show what Shabby Chic is all about! (Courtesy of the inter-webs)

Isn't this room just so luxurious and beautiful! Can't you imagine sleeping until noon in that big soft bed?

How cute is this Breakfast nook?

So Awesome!!!!!

Anyway, there are a few pictures I thought would give you an idea. More to come at a later date!

Happy New Year a little Early!
