Interestingly, the comeback of the century is actually a comeback from last century and partially the century before that. One of the most popular interior décor styles in the current era is a mixture of old and new.
In this style, recycled and upcycled pieces from the past mix with the light, airy, and muted colors of the present. Fabrics, patterns, and ornate designs from the traditional French world spill over into the bedrooms, bathrooms, and kitchens of North American homes from the countryside to the heart of the urban center.
You’ve seen this style. You know this style. You want this style. But how can you get it? I’m here to walk you through how to bring the elements of country cottage, French country, and shabby chic together into what will be a peaceful, tranquil, and comfortable bathroom. You are the luckiest of all the people who’ve visited this website because you have found yourself smack in the middle of one of my most favorite design styles.
It’s All About Mixing it Up
Don’t be afraid to mix things from different eras and different styles. In fact, that is a big part of what makes this style so unique. So long as your pieces match your color scheme, you can get away with including almost anything in your design. A word of caution, however – be careful not to include too many pieces which are similar to each other. You want keep an eclectic appearance – a mishmash of old and new; multiple patterns and textures.
