Vintage items such as old vases or glassware make fantastic decorations for your country style living room. Add old photographs with mismatched picture frames, pop some old books on your mantel piece or coffee table and give your living room that charm of past days.
An important characteristic for the shabby chic look is its effortlessness. Break with the rules, forget patterns and let your creativity flow. You want to create a room that looks warm and inviting and not thinking too much about where you place a cushion or plant pot is a crucial part of that.
