Shabby chic is all everyone can talk about at the moment. While the trend started in the world of interior décor, it is quickly transitioning into more general and mainstream lifestyle and being applied to areas of one’s life that go beyond wall colors and furniture.
Shabby chic is quite a specific and recognizable style, which can be achieved in many different ways. It can have a rustic, cottage-style vibe or more of a beach, resort aesthetic. It can be simple and elegant, but also quite opulent, if taken too far.

In basic terms, decorating in shabby chic style means channeling a soft, vintage elegance, combined with adorned, detailed and artistic accents. However, this all needs to have a distressed – in the sense of used and lived-in, rather than old and past its prime – and comfortable edge, which gives it the shabby aspect.

In fact, shabby chic decoration can actually be quite beneficial in the bathroom environment, as it takes away some of the sterile simplicity of the space and makes it look more cozy, attractive and comfortable for truly relaxing experiences like long baths, spa treatments and other such activities.

The first thing to consider is the space and colors. Shabby chic decoration usually means having soft, neutral colored walls, so that’s the palette you’ll be working with – pinks, grays and beige tones. To complement the aesthetic, you can also opt for materials that are or resemble wood or wallpaper, which will pull in the vintage-cottage style even more.

Other very important elements are lighting and mirrors. A framed mirror is a must-have in any shabby chic bathroom, but we’re not talking about a plain frame here – the frame needs to be metallic and ornate, and preferably a little distressed, to give it that centuries-old appearance.

The same thing applies to lighting. You need to forego any modern lighting in favor of ornate chandeliers, which will certainly go very well with your mirror and add to the rustic-vintage feel of the room.
