How to get the shabby chic look with pretty crochet patternsPrint
The shabby chic trend has been going strong for some years now.
Managing to strike a balance between elegant and laid-back, it’s not hard to see why it’s been a hit with home owners for so long.
Key themes of this interior look include distressed wood, soft fabrics in subtle shades and vintage floral patterns.
