The 101 on Shabby Chic Holiday Decorating

As the days get shorter, the holidays grow closer; which means now is the perfect time to add some new pieces of holiday accent décor to your home. Whether you’re all about classic decorations or have a more non-traditional décor style, you’ll find everything you’re looking for with country shabby chic decorations. If you want just one or two statement pieces to display or are looking for enough decorations to spread throughout your whole home, this style will have you covered.

The country shabby chic décor trend is extremely popular right now. And the good news is that it’s accessible for every homeowner, even those who think interior decorating just “isn’t their thing.” Each of these pieces is a charming mixture of modern design and vintage flair that’s perfect for those who enjoy a cozy country vibe.

To get started, take stock of what you already have in your home: paint colors, furniture colors, patterns and style, year-round décor, and more. This will help you find pieces that complement what’s already in your home to add style and holiday cheer. For example, if your living room features bold patterns and colors, you might be best suited for picking simple decorations like a table runner for your coffee table to keep the room from feeling too busy. Or if you generally tend towards a more neutral, minimal style, a focal point piece like a large holiday wreath would be perfect.

To help get you started we’ve gathered a few of our favorite holiday accent décor items to get the ideas flowing.
