12 Tiny Homes That Prove Small Spaces Are More Glam Than Ever | Brit + Co
Are you looking for shabby chic decoration ideas to use in your kitchen? Here are several simple and fun ideas that I have personally used to integrate this interior style into the essential space of the house - the kitchen.
Start by making an inventory of keepsakes and newer knicks that you like and can be used as shabby chic decor in the kitchen. Holdouts that I used in my shabby chic kitchen were an old wooden recipe box, vintage measuring spoons, old tin cookie cutters, a miniature iron, an antique compact, a ceramic rose design with a lid and serving spoon, a vintage tea set and a couple of small photos in antique frames.
Decide where to display your articles. I used a tall, wrought iron corner shelf with four shelves to show the above items. On each shelf I draped a small lace door that hung over the edge of the shelf. What I liked best about this collection was that it was tucked into a corner and out of the traffic flow, and at the same time it was very attractive. It was a wonderful way to display memorabilia instead of having them packed in a box.
Shabby chic home decor such as vintage bowls, trays and vases can be displayed on the countertops and then brought to life by actually using them. Your family and guests will enjoy the uniqueness of their past and also of their current beauty. For most family holiday dinners, I produce family heirloom bowls and bowls. What a great way to remember the good days!
Kitchen curtains are a great way to add that shabby chic look with a unique twist. Instead of the traditional cafe curtains, use a valance scarf made of beautiful shabby chic cotton. Instead of dragging the scarf over a bar, use a rolling type hook, pull the scarf as usual over the hooks, and then pull the scarf through each hook from behind to create a "puffy circular" look for each window corner. This is very attractive and unique plus keeps the scarf in place. The sides of the scarf hang about halfway down the window for extra interest.
A wrought iron chandelier with a distressed finish is a fantastic chabby chic home decor over the dining table in the kitchen. It adds to the feel of the shabby chic decor without being too formal.
Remember that shabby chic decoration can be used in any room in the house. Let your imagination and ingenuity flow to create a beautiful and unique shabby chic look on your home.
