A very easy way to bring some color and add the romantic feel of shabby chic decor is to simply add flowers.
Make a trip to a few garage sales, estate sales or the local thrift store and you’re sure to find lovely, inexpensive vases that are perfect for adding a finishing touch to your shabby chic room. If you have a crafty nature you can set about creating your own custom vase designs and we’ll cover some ideas for doing this later in the year.
A simple clear glass option with roses is a very simple route. Sometimes you can incorporate the color scheme if the shades you’ve chosen happen to be a variety found in roses. Daisies and many other flowers also offer options. Just like with other ideas we’ve explored this year so far, a trip to the store can provide some inspiration. Visit floral departments and just see what’s out there – both silk and real.
When spring comes, plant yourself a small cutting garden. Some varieties of flowers can even be grown in a patio container garden and all you have to do is step outside, snip a few of your favorite homegrown flora and fauna for an inexpensive way to perk up every room in the house, whether it is shabby chic or not!
