Day Three: Shabby Chic

by Grace Bonney

I have to admit, for a while I wasn't so into forest green. It's funny how all it takes is an image like this to completely change my opinion of a particular color. This stove is amazing! The blue drawers and shelves are a brilliant complement, and I just can't get over the gold accents.

Again, the gold accents are gorgeous. Fresh flowers can add the perfect pop of color to a room, and in this case, I adore the color of the three roses. The rustic brown mirror frame is just right against the light yellow wall. This bathroom, to me, is shabby chic at it's best!
