Add a Touch of Romance with Shabby Chic and Vintage Style

At long last it looks as if Summer has arrived; beautiful clear blue skies, romantic roses and outdoor living come together to bring us a quintessentially English look, with its distinct nod towards French country living. This time of year is peaceful when you can get away from the hustle and bustle of city life; the warm days beckon us outdoors to tend the garden or laze away an afternoon reading a good book or dozing peacefully under the shade of a tree.
