Hunt Hunt Hunt: an Eclectic Mix of Shabby Chic

Overview

Last days for The Shabby Chic Hunt (3/15-3/31) and I wanted to highlight a number of items that I used to create my electic mix cottage.  As a shabby chic diva, this seems like the perfect hunt to feature.  I am fond of shabby chic decor.  The style started in Great Britain and was heavily influenced by Mediterranean cultures such as Provence, Tuscany and Greece. Very popular in Los Angeles and San Francisco, CA USA (my home base) in the 80’s & 90’s, Bohemians and artists recycled old furniture and fabrics in a nod to the counter-culture movement.  It’s fun and eclectic and anyone can add a little shabby chic spice to their home no matter the style.  One of the key elements to shabby chic design is layering ‘finds’ and ideas together.  I love the mix of colors, the old, the new and the unexpected.  Enjoy and let’s get decorating!
