I have always adored shabby chic, in fact I have been indulging in shabby well before it became chic, but since we bought the caravan I am taking it to another level with accessories to match the freshness of the white with the zing of the lime green. The colour scheme never fails to make me smile, especially when teamed with the warm glow of chandelier lamps, fairy lights and cosy candles.
Upon reflection, I guess the choice of colours was a wee bit brave given we live with two very messy (and hairy) small animals, but it’s worked out well. It has opened the caravan up so much that when we return home from a long day at work, we don’t feel like it’s a punishment to be confined to this small space. Especially now we have a dinner table!
As you can see from the picture, this version is a little more robust. The cat has tested it several times just to make sure it can take his weight and is happy with the outcome. Trying to keep him off the table is another story. The curtains are a little makeshift and still need sewing (at the moment, safety pins are holding them up, which looks soooo classy from the outside). I am loving the battery operated green lantern from a local pound store.
