A super easy, shabby chic decor accent is a vase full of flowers. Gardenias are a nice fit. The elegant simplicity of white, a nice, strong, fragrant, scent and they just seem to have an old fashioned appeal about them. The only trouble is they don’t last very long in the vase. A nice alternative is a white, gardenia scented candle. We just started stocking them here at the Attic in our discount candles category.
White pillars are an easy fit and for a little extra look and feel of days gone by just opt for apothecary or preserve jars as the container for the candles. Candles come in a variety of sizes and styles so you can find small accent pieces or large commanding squares. They are a perfect, inexpensive way to complete the shabby chic room.
