Sunday Quilt Inspiration: Shabby Chic


Roses, clematis, hydrangea.  Distressed white wood.  Wired cages. Gilded frames.   Comfy, overstuffed cushions.  Shabby and chic. Vintage and new.  Fresh and old.  


More popular in Europe (I think) shabby chic decor still has a following in the United States.  The decor and clothing are romantic, charming and poetic in nature. It's especially popular among DIY'ers because the natural distressed look of vintage, worn items fit easily into the design.
