Shabby chic is a term first used by Rachel Ashwell. She wrote a book under this title in which she introduces this new style and tells us all about it. The main point of this style is to use old and worn out furniture.
Shabby chic colours are mostly light such as white, pink, beige, a bit of grey and even light blue. In the U.S. shabby chic interiors are quite oftenly complemented with light pink, which makes the homes look very feminine. Overall shabby chic is an exceptionally feminine style.
