If there’s one time of year that seems purpose-built for the shabby-chic aesthetic, it’s Christmas!

Something about the happily thrown together colours and vintage themes suits shabby-chic down to the ground, and here we’re having a look at a few ways to give your home that carefree, rustic charm this festive season.

This garland and accompanying ‘Christmas’ lettering quickly gets to grips with the shabby-chic charm. The homemade feel, softened off-whites and reds, and the accessories such as the cute candle holder all set the tone for a welcoming and cosy Christmas feel.

And this festive living room again fulfils all of the traditional shabby-chic criteria with its wonderfully distressed furniture, softened colour palette, and even the Christmas tree itself seems to have been found from yesteryear!


If there’s one thing that shabby chic has an abundance of, is its love for accessorising in new and interesting ways. This Christmas dining room is full to the brim of enchanting accessories that really sets the tone for a magical Christmas – whether it be the playful tartan heart pendants, the cheeky tree card decorations, or even the somewhat decadent crown on the centre of the dining table!


The great thing about shabby-chic is that there really are no rules, and this Christmas display really goes for it with its intense red and green colour palette. The imaginative use of an old set of upcycled ladders is a great display stand for a range of wonderful festive items such as candle holders, wine glasses and the obligatory poinsettias.


But when it comes down to it, shabby-chic works best when it is done with flair, passion and imagination. This cosy living room sets the perfect tone with an eclectic mix of thrown-together fabrics and styles, a soft but vibrant colour palette, and an array of charming accessories from angels to reindeer that all work together to celebrate Christmas in the best way possible!
