Shabby Chic Pillows & Quilts

Hi all! Iím Jennifer and I write for Arcadian Home Decor, a site that chronicles the work of top interior designers and home decor trends around the world. I've been writing about home decor since graduating university and have loved it ever since. I'm addicted to patterned fabrics, Jonathan Adler, chaise lounges, old doors, milk glass jars, antiques, and chandeliers. The Pink Pig blog is always full of delightful surprises, and I'm so happy to be guest posting here today. Thanks Debbie Schrodt - and don't forget to check out her incredible store in Westport, New York!

Shabby chic evokes a sense of nostalgia - all those incredible patterns, soft shades and whimsical
home accessories add instant elegance and character to any space. Today, original pillows and quilts in delicate shabby chic styles can be found at flea markets as well as revamped in modern designs at big-box stores. Here are eight shabby chic pillows and quilts to fall in love with.

A subtle floral print of pink, white and mint green looks lovely with butterfly wall art and an antique end table topped with a pink and white lamp.

A shabby chic quilt is draped over an array of modern bedding layers, while vintage furnitures lend a deliciously dated feel to the space.

Mod magenta via†Apartments I Like

This contemporary spin on the traditional uses a shabby chic motif in avant-garde colours like magenta and lime green. The painted headboard and floating end table complete the look.

Shabby for baby via†Project Nursery

There's something oh-so-sweet about a shabby chic nursery such as this, with the tree-printed quilt and accent pillows. Two birds-in-flight wall art decals add some playfulness.

Boutique hotel chic via†The Home Decorating Company

The wrought-iron antique furniture and brushed copper table lamp give this bedroom a decidedly dated feel - the sleek material of the bedding along with frilly edging are a mix of old and new.

Classic rosebuds via†Shopperhive

A loft bedroom is perfection when outfitted in a traditional pink, red and white rosebud pillow and quilt - the pale blue is mimicked in the table decorations and curvy wall mirror.

A solid white canopy bed flanked with paper stars, pink and white shabby chic bedding and newly-wrapped presents make this space worthy of celebration.
