All is calm and cosy in today’s house tour where the living spaces boast hidden shabby chic treasures and a simple colour scheme of beautiful pastel shades that are easy on the eye.
The living room has a lived-in, casual and calming influence – in shades of pastel blues and greys. The use of fabrics within this colour scheme add texture here, from the drapes to the grey linen sofa and mix of scatters and throws on the couch. Simple grey layered rugs tie it all together while also functioning as an anchor for the furniture in this room. And we simply have to mention the wonderful array of decor and key pieces in this space – from a striking window framed mirror resting against the back wall, to a rustic wire-framed lampshade, shabby chic coffee table and statement bird artwork on the wall!Panelled walls add to the unrefined elegance of the dining space, in a similar muted blue colour scheme that continues from the living room. Again, a simple yet striking chicken-wire lampshade adds texture and definition in this space. A rustic table and chairs are styled with natural lintableclothoth and a simple mix of decor items including vintage candle holders and rustic clay pot – all adding to the effortless style of this shabby chic retreat. The bedroom too is a celebration of vintage finds from a repurposed wooden headboard to rustic metal bedside tables. The beautifully draped fabric above the bed softens the hard edges of this space, creating a wonderfully romantic and cosy master suite. A mix of fabrics on the bed also add to the layered look of this room – the ideal spot to celebrate the old and embrace a charming vintage lifestyle. The overall feel of this home is soothing and calm, with a playful mix of vintage finds that add a sense of old-world charm here. Contact: Plascon Via styling: Ashley Pratt / photography: Maree Homer
