Shabby Chic Baby Bedding
The term shabby chic seems to have been tossed around so much it’s really difficult to know what the style actually consists of. Originally, it came from designers who took distressed furnishings and accent pieces that looked like they were vintage, or from another time period. They were not necessarily antiques but some pieces looked like they could be, and other pieces looked like they came from a cozy cottage.
Shabby chic furnishings often have gone through numerous owners and just as many coats and colors of paint. Fabric is usually lace and linens which can be stark white or lightly stained with tea to give it a pale earthy shade. Chenille bedspreads, old looking chandeliers and any kind of rose motif are also popular shabby chic items.
Shabby chic came about naturally by people who didn’t have enough money to spend on trendy and expensive furnishings. Instead they found used items and put their own twist on it making them look as if they were upscale pieces. Finding shabby chic baby bedding won’t be hard as many companies have built décor businesses based on designing new shabby chic furnishings. Some of the places that sell new baby crib bedding in shabby chic styles include the selections below.
