Shabby Chic type salon decor - 20-04-11, 08:48 AM

I am thinking about decorating my salon in a kind of shbby chic way like boutiques are. I've been trying to explain what I mean to my mum but she's no idea. If anyone has that type of decor do you mind sharing your pictures so I can explain a rough idea of what I want to her. I saw a picture last night after I had done a search or 7 and I can't find it again. I don't want to copy how you have it I just want to show her some ideas.

Thanks

You can have a look at the photo's in my gallery if you like, I've only got a few on there but it's kind of shabby chic/french antique style.

Unfortunately I don't have any photos to share but I think that would be gorgeous for a salon! Just say to you're mum "Laura Ashley" and "Cath Kidson" style. I suppose it's all light coloured furniture with baby blue and pink tones - a bit like the country look.

Ooooo - I'd love to see a photo of yours when it's done!

I have a shabby chic salon too. I have a laura ashley wall paper with birds on it and flowers, it actually looks oriental. And then I have furniture which has been made to look old in light pink, dusty pink. I have candles all over the place!!. Be careful not to make it look to twee.

Thank you.

It's just paint, a real nice pale sage green. Lot's of clients comment in how relaxing it is. I'll try to put some more photo's on later.
