Tuesday Huesday: Vintage Shabby Chic

This image was found in the Fall/Winter 2010 issue of Cottage Style.  What I love about vintage is the soft colors – I feel completely relaxed and like I should be sitting outside in a lounge chair with someone fanning me.  Shabby chic is popular in home decor, probably because of the relaxed vibe that I mentioned.  These shades are perfect for decorating accessories.  You can start with a base of cream and add accent colors for something truly gorgeous.  The image inspired the following palette.

This palette was created using FolkArt Acrylic colors (from left to right): Parchment, Spring Rose, Habor Mist, Coffee Latte
