While I love my cottage colours and pretty pastels, timeless whites are still my go-to for shabby chic decorating.
Whites are timeless, simple, clean and easy to look at!
I have collected a lot of whites over the years. Everything from jugs, ironstone, vintage plates, serving platters, delicate old linens, teacups, candle holders and even silk flowers.
When shopping my own home, white is the easiest colour to throw together and I always enjoy it.
Styling with whites and neutrals is super easy and a great place to start for anyone still new to putting vignettes together.
Remember the basic steps I shared in my 5 tips for styling shelf vignettes post. Create an anchor piece, add height, textures, balance and proportion.
In the vignette below, the cloche is the anchor and adds height to my pyramid, the metal ware on each side gives balance and the flowers add the texture.
One of the things I love about styling with white, is that it can be adapted so easily, just by adding in some accent colour.
The addition of a couple of pastels to the vignette below, while still keeping the look fairly neutral, does add visual interest.
This is especially useful for seasonal vignettes when you don’t want to change everything. White vignettes give you a great backdrop for adding in seasonal décor pieces or pops of colour, without having to completely make-over a room, shelf or dresser.
