Shabby & Shorely...

I consider Shabby Chic a sister to Shorely Chic. Shabby lives in a Parisian or English apartment and likes to drink tea out of floral china cups and Shorely lives on the coast and loves white wine sangria.

The two share many common traits like a relaxed style and use of whites and neutrals. They both LOVE white slipcovers, in fact, Shabby introduced them to the world and Shorely kind of copied! They both strive to create a peaceful and refreshing environment for their inhabitants, Shabby with more of an English Country feel and Shorely with a more beach/ocean influence.

Here are some elegant shabby chic interiors courtesy of decorpad I just had to share...

gorgeous aren't they?

Now here is a bit more of the Shorely Chic look, not 100% but getting there...

thanks for reading :)

  2. Girl.. your Shorely is there!! Smashing!!! I love the kitchen... and I may have to 'copy' a little from Shorely, not Shabby!

  3. These are great pictures! Both styles are so relaxing and you always feel so "at home" when you are looking at them. Hope your having a wonderful Tuesday! xoxo
