The classic shabby chic paint scheme is white – just white walls. This gives you a blank canvas to then decorate the space with a pastel color palette: cream, yellow, mint, pink, and light grey. In most of the pictures above, you’ll see white or off white painted rooms. In my room specific mood boards, you’ll also see the white/off white walls:

Other shabby chic paint colors include painting the walls mint, light blue or light grey.

A Textured Look

For a more rustic style, why not go for a textured wall. This can be done with rough plastering, Italian style (seen below in picture (A). There are also ways of creating a textured look just by using paint effects (Textured Wall Painting Ideas: From Faux Wood to Linen Effects).

Check out my mood board here for different shabby chic wallpaper designs. My favorite designs are the textured ones, called Anaglypta wallpaper. You can even get wallpaper that looks like lace (B).

Textured Shabby Chic Walls

For me, the best shabby chic combination would be white walls with decorative wall trim, seen in picture (C) above. You can also get some pretty fancy crown molding that would go well in a shabby chic styled room (D).

To really get a shabby chic style in the room, you’ll want to use as much fabric as possible. This includes on the walls. Have a look at my post here for ideas on how to decorate the windows: Window Treatment Style: Shabby Chic Curtains, Rods, and Tie Backs.
