Guest Blogger from Arcadian Home

Hi again! I’m Jennifer and I write for Arcadian Lighting, a must-shop resource for beautiful light fixtures. I have always had a soft spot for home decor, ever since I was little, and I'm so excited that I get to write about home decor for a living. I've already had the distinct privilege of blogging for Roses Petite Maison and I'm thrilled to be back, this time sharing a post on some adorable shabby chic rooms. Thanks, Carol!




Finding great furniture and home accessories doesn't have to mean putting a dent in the bank account - some of the most incredible treasures can be found at inexpensive flea markets. Bursting with antiques, glassware, light fixtures, table decor, and so much more, there's no limit as to what can be discovered for shabby chic rooms.



Patio with panache


Shabby Chic Rooms



Seasons for All... At Home via


Almost everything in this outdoor space is refurbished, from the daybed and table to the fabric-covered pillows. This is a dreamy escape set against nature's backdrop.



Casual dining


Shabby Chic Rooms



Heady’s Headings via


This traditional table and chairs were given a new lease on life with a fresh coat of paint and charming white cushions. The vintage dishes in the background are also pretty flea market finds.



Lovely pastels


Shabby Chic Rooms



Designers’ Block via


The oversized sink in this kitchen gives the space a retro feel, while the collection of dinnerware on the open shelves showcase some shabby chic flea market buys. Note the small weathered bench on the floor, a great little detail.



Gorgeous great room


Shabby Chic Rooms



Mix And Chic via


A modern ceiling light offsets the dated furniture, like the chest of drawers and coffee table, as well as the pale retro-infused colours of the adjoining kitchenette.

Lady Wild Curls: An Escapism Blog via


An ornate chandelier lighting fixture is an elegant detail over this shabby chic dining room table, lending some richness to the whitewashed setting.



Opulent office


Shabby Chic Rooms



Helloilmare via


A reupholstered dining room chair is the perfect seat in front of this second-hand desk -- this home office pulls double duty as a sitting room with a vintage recovered couch too.



Neat niche


Shabby Chic Rooms

This looks like an ideal spot to enjoy brunch or share the company of a friend; the foldable steel lawn chairs look surprisingly right around a more formal table. The hanging light fixture and lamp on the mantel are the finishing touches to this mismatched (yet streamlined) room.



Tea toddler

Little girls will love clanking teacups around this mini shabby chic table and chairs  - the delicate flower-printed wallpaper is oh-so-pretty!
