Masculine Shabby Chic: I’ve Found “The One”!

“Masculine Shabby Chic” – My Dream Man!




Totally in love.


I confess I’ve always felt a tad torn dreaming of all this shabby chic glory for my home….like “My poor husband….what will he do with all this pastel and frill?” 


So I’ve secretly harbored a second love affair with rustic leather, dark browns and navy blue, and strong, sturdy furniture. I was thinking I should probably never admit that here…..


But! It turns out I may be safer than I thought.


Lo, and Behold….
There is a new trend in town. And his name is:


Masculine Shabby Chic!


With my first glimpse of this style combination….I heaved a huge sigh of satisfaction.


This is it. I found my true love! 


Masculine Shabby Chic is…about what you’d expect from the name. It’s the shabby chic style philosophy- ornate, vintage, worn, tattered and beautiful- with a darker, sturdier more rustic overtone.

It’s like a gorgeous antique wagon trunk draped with a soft linen curtain.




Or an ornate french dinner table set with a sturdy burlap runner and solid white and brown plateware.


Or…well….like my dreamy husband: Steady, sturdy, worn and masculine….but with a tender, sweet edge here or there.


Thus- I have dubbed this style “The One.” Everybody’s looking for our heart’s perfect match, for our soul mate….


So I hereby declare my style soulmate has been found.


And this is what he looks like.
