When it comes to decorating, there are a few trends that never go out of style, and one of those is shabby chic. Shabby chic is a decorating style that incorporates items that are old or worn to create a look that's both timeless and tailored. There are many ways to create a shabby chic style in a room, from deliberately distressing and antiquing furniture to picking up a genuine vintage piece at a thrift store to adding accents in a retro or classic style.
Using distressed rugs is one way to incorporate the shabby chic look into your home. Distressed rugs look well-worn, but are elegant, warm and homey at the same time.

It is a welcome retreat that soothes the soul and instills a sense of peace in everyone.
