Lots to go over today, I hope you don’t mind
me sharing more images than usual.
Kayla Kitts of HGTV.COM contacted us a few weeks ago
and asked if we would shoot our living room and dinning
room and share some tips on decorating with Shabby Chic Couture
This was a fun project and I enjoyed working with Janis from Shabby she is a sweet
friend and extremely talented. Thank you for letting us do this.
When creating a shabby chic look, it's easy to get carried away with accessories, decor and fabrics galore. According to interior designer Lulu Tapp, less is more when it comes to bulky furniture and accessories, especially in a shabby chic design. "Allow for movement throughout the room when adding sofas, chairs and other large pieces of furniture; you should emulate a comfortable feeling throughout the space," she says. And one of her top pieces of advice: Avoid clutter at all costs. Design and photography by Lulu Tapp of DustyLu Interiors. Room accessories and decor from Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Couture
When you're not hosting parties or entertaining, use antique tarnished silverware to add decorative detail to your "display-only" table settings. Wrap and tie a handkerchief around a bundle of silverware to give your table even more shabby chic-ness. Design and photography by Lulu Tapp of DustyLu Interiors.

Known for its charm yet casual grace, shabby chic designs can also emit an air of elegance. Soft floral patterns in pastels are a common detail in shabby chic dishware. These stunning porcelain pieces also feature a simple yet refined double gold trim around the edges of each dish. Design and photography by Lulu Tapp of DustyLu Interiors
One of the most important things to remember when hosting a party or get-together is to make sure your guests feel at ease with their surroundings. "When setting a table for your guests, make it look relaxed and not stuffy, ensuring your guests feel comfortable," interior designer Lulu Tapp says. In this luxurious dining room, a ruffled and wrinkled tablecloth immediately emits a casual feel, while simple table settings are less intimidating and more inviting.
