Love this!!!  But why do you get a shabby vibe?  Aside from the pillows being a little sloppy, and the afghan on the arm of the couch, which elements give you the shabby vibe?  Just curious.


@faeriemoon

It reminds me of Shabby Chic decor and looks as if someone "artsy" lives there. Light furniture (or whitewashed), "collected" items, and florals.

 

In the PB campaign, this is what "the look" is called.

@lolakimono  I love this one too!  Both photos you posted kind of remind me of my house (which is probably why I like them).

 

Thanks!

Too white. I like the room with the blue couches.

Re: The Shabby Artist

Both rooms, plus Kachina624's picture--  dreamy, lolakimono.  Love them.  Even though i love color (my living room walls are Benjamin Moore's "Woodlawn Blue",  a soft robin's egg blue) these rooms have my favorite ethereal, airy, calm-inducing feeling.  And that pale wooden ceiling is fabulous...
