Modern Shabby Living Room Friends - Lounge Life

Fun Stuff / September 22,2013

Beauty blogger Elle Fowler recently wrote of the challenge she faced when combining her love for 'shabby chic' with her modern apartment living room. With white walls and dark timber floors, what it took was the right pitch of both elements, she claimed not too heavy on the 'shabby', not too relentlessly modern.

The smooth but padded lines and timber legs of her two sofas mixed modern and chic perfectly. Even though they are a bright white, she said they were a breeze to keep clean. A fan of metallic accents on white, she opted for a groovy chrome standing lamp, white bar stools and a low-slung TV stand. She fretted that her TV stand's glossy white might clash with the cream and timber elsewhere, but it looked great. 'Shabby' accents came from things like a gold ornamental elephant, a pile of books, and soft upholstery on the bar stools. Lastly, she asked her readers to help choose a coffee table from a choice of five. Some favoured her four white sleek choices, but many suggested her clean-lined timber pick as the ideal. They said it? would contrast well with so much white.

The moral is: do not be scared to throw mis-matched looks together. It seems Fowler's living room will get the love she said it needed!
