Modern Shabby Chic?

Friday, October 23, 2009

Is it possible to be Modern and Shabby Chic? Great question! What if you favored plush, feminine, vintage pieces but your significant other would rather see clean and visually light pieces in the space instead? Why not have elements of both styles incorporated to create a Modern and Shabby Chic space? It's possible!

In this great example, the sofa and chairs are very shabby chic (white slipcovers & lush cushions!) while the rest of the accessories are modern (i.e. clean lines, no frills, white/black color palette).

Geometric shapes juxtaposed with the softness of the sofa and chair create a quiet harmony.

Mid-century modern pieces (floor lamp, Poang chair) are combined with French Shabby Chic pieces (blue wood-carved chairs and stool) to create a colorful eclectic style.

The sculptural shape of the light fixtures in both rooms balance out the frillier vintage pieces.

Let's be honest here, the floral pattern could be a bit overwhelming but the lamp definitely helps bring the frilliness down a notch.

Clean lines found in the shelving and countertops, but everything on them is as Shabby Chic as you can get.

You can do all sorts of combinations to get both styles to work together. Your main pieces could be Shabby Chic while your accessories are modern or vice versa. The use of color and pattern could be the Modern that you inject while everything else is Shabby Chic. The possibilities are endless as they say.
