Shabby Chic

I have been working in the city the past couple of days and I have to say, it  has been a breath of fresh air from the burbs, which is a little ironic, I know. If you are not familiar with Chicago, let me give a little run down on the different areas of the city. So we have the downtown area of course, and then a hand full of cute little neighborhood areas. I happen to be working in the Lakeview neighborhood. 

This area along with the other neighborhoods are full of mom and pop restaurants,wine bars, mixed in between cute coffee shops and adorable boutiques which I of course love. As much as I adore all of these great perks of the area, the thing I admire the most, are all of the old beautiful brownstones. They are full of charm and character, and I find myself missing my little brownstone that I lived in for the first year I lived in Chicago. The vintage white crown molding, the cozy sitting nook that overlooked the street, and the stunning wood floors were among my favorite, very shabby chic...

Mixing and matching older and newer pieces is one my favorite ways to decorate, which is why I think shabby chic is one of my most beloved decorating styles. Are you guys into shabby chic decor?

Hope your week is going well!
