We make a children's room in the style of shebbi-chic
Children's room in the style of chebbi-chic resembles a cozy fairy-tale world and therefore is most suitable for young princesses or toddlers. Older boys are more likely to prefer to see something brighter and more courageous in their room.
Shebbi-chic came to interior design in the eighties in England thanks to Rachel Ashewell, who was seriously interested in restoring old furniture. Furnishing her house, Rachel began to make exclusive furniture, and then textiles with decorative accessories for sale. To this day, the vintage charm of this style and a gentle touch of antiquity have been preserved.

Color solution and finish
For the chebbi chic style, muted pastel colors are typical, as if faded with time. Mint, gently yellow, pink and blue shades in combination with white are well suited for a children's room. Appetizing vanilla, chocolate, cream tones look no less beautiful.
The surfaces can be either monophonic or with unobtrusive floral pattern, checkered, striped, polka-dot or other simple patterns. These rules are appropriate for finishing, and for textiles, and for interior accessories.
- Not only wallpaper with a cute retro pattern, but also white wooden panels or decorative plaster are suitable for wall decoration.
- The floor should be covered with wooden planks or high-quality laminate imitating the texture of wood.
- Popular suspended or suspended ceiling in the style of chebbi-chic will be completely out of place. It is better to simply paint the ceiling in a light, but not snow-white color. The final choice with the finishing options will help photos of interiors in the style of shebbi-chic.

Each piece of furniture according to the philosophy of the Chebbi-chic style has its own history. Hence the deliberate rubbing, scratches, roughness, even on new furniture. Of course, today many manufacturers successfully imitate the effect of antiquity. But if you wish and possessing certain skills, you can independently give a second life to old pieces of furniture.
In the children's room in the style of shebby-chic, it is appropriate to have wooden “grandmothers” decorated with carving chests with a lot of drawers and shelves, cute soft chairs with floral upholstery, a small table and chairs with curved legs and openwork backrest. In general, Chebbi-chic furniture is characterized by the absence of sharp corners and natural materials, which is so important for the nursery.
Furniture items should be painted in white or made of the most light-colored wood. If the furniture is covered with delicate painting, it will give the interior a special glamor and romantic look. You can wake up inspiration and be filled with ideas by studying photos of children's rooms, decorated in the style of shebbi-chic.

Textiles and decor
Shebbi-chic, like no other style, welcomes an abundance in the interior of textiles. Chairs are decorated with covers, beds are covered with bedspreads with ruffles, openwork curtains, light short curtains with lambrequins will look good on the windows, small decorative pillows will decorate a sofa or a chair. Textiles can be monophonic or with a characteristic unobtrusive floral pattern, images of birds, butterflies, cage, polka dots or strip are welcome.
Decorative items decorated with decoupage technique will look very beautiful and original. Having studied the master classes, which are not difficult to find on the Internet today, you can make the interior of a nursery truly unique and inimitable.
Since little ladies, like their mothers, love to dress up, there must be a big full-length mirror in the nursery, which can also be decorated with paintings on the edges or hung in a light wooden frame with carvings.
