How to balance country decore while living in a city apartment

SnapoutofitMiriam I3po3


I love the country shabby chic look but don't know how to make this work in a city apartment. Any suggestions? I don't want our home to look completely ridiculous but I refuse to give up on the style I love. We can paint everything but the floors.

    You could go a long way by refinishing a few choice pieces of furniture. Search "shabby chic" in the box at the top of the page, and you will see a lot of great refinishing projects that might inspire you.

    I just moved into a city apartment and love the country look too. I don't think it will look ridiculous at all! Do you have a picture to share?

    I love the idea of creating a mix of new and old

    , vintage and modern
