Easter means it’s time for pastels and florals– and that means it’s the perfect time to try out some shabby chic trends.
Personally, I love the shabby chic palette: think cottage blues, pink roses and white lace!
A lot of people are hot for all-white farmhouse decor right now, and while I love it as well, the strong craftsman characteristics in our home don’t quite jive with farmhouse style.

We have SO MANY windows on our first floor. So many, it makes it hard to place furniture anywhere! So instead of white walls, I went with a shabby blue to help all the white trim work to stand out.
As you see, I still have no window treatments, but I do love hanging garland and banners to help even the space out and make it feel festive.

I wouldn’t call my style full-on shabby chic though. I just like to bring a few dainty elements in, like this gold bunny from Target.
Instead, I lean cottage-style. I really want Josh to put some white plank ceilings in our bedroom and kitchen. I’d LOVE white interior shutters on our windows, but that would cost a fortune, and you know we are renovating on a tight budget.
Moving to the living room, I usually don’t do faux florals, but I actually fell in love with this rose and succulent bouquet from Michaels. The welcome sign also came from there and it’s the perfect blend of all my favorite styles. It’s shabby, farmhouse, cottage all in one! And leaning it up against this grapevine wreath on this rough sawn cedar mantle even gives it a rustic feel.
I also fell for this shabby chalk-art canvas. Guess where it’s from? Michaels 🙈
I swear my husband probably thinks I’m cheating on him with this Michael guy 😂

But for now, I leave you with this springy welcome mat that I got from… you guessed it… Michaels! 💕 Happy Easter!
