Well its beginning to look a lot like Christmas and with less than 6 days to go until we can open our presents, what could be better than (if you haven’t already) getting stuck into decorating you home all festive. Why not get inspired by some shabby chic festive decorations to get even more in the mood this season or to simply prep you for your chosen style next year. Being a big lover of all things shabby and vintage myself, I’d recommend to try something regal and charming to the traditional brushed gold and ruby red bringing a shabby chic and vintage Christmas decor theme into your home this year.
When I think of shabby chic style and character straight away lots of white pattern lace, floral prints and bunting banners come to mind. You could really get creative adding reams of lace trimmings to the edges of your shelves, mantel pieces and more to add a detailed border all around your living space. To add a shabby finishing touch placing a handmade Christmas bunting or in this case typed label banner can really spread that festive cheer and wishes for a white Christmas with friends and family.
Being the festive centre of the family home at Christmas I can think of nothing more enjoyable than spending cosy evenings with family relaxing in the living room , listening to classic Christmas tunes and watching home alone whilst admiring the cherpy decor. To really make your living space pop with vintage charm try to work with different tones of cream, warm gold’s and pastel shades to link back to the shabby chic theme and also be sure to wrap everything up with ribbon and bow for that added touch.
Specially cut glass lighting , cream candles and fairy lights have to be the perfect lighting choice to add that warmth and subtly to any part of your home. I especially love how as an alternative to a table wreath arrangement, here you could bring to the tablet a vintage white cake stand and instead of adding some delicious cupcakes and macaroon you can add a mix of Christmas decorations, beading and items of your choice.
Remember your vintage shabby chic decor doesn’t have to stay within your living room though; you could get creative and embellish this style anywhere in your home from the kitchen to bedroom. So go on get inspired and get decorating!
