Guest Post: Susi from Design Shuffle...

Today, I am so excited to share with you, some beautiful outdoor Shabby Chic trends, put together by our friends over at Design Shuffle...


Hi! It's Susi and I write for the awesome Design Shuffle. It's a fabulous social networking site for interior designers, architects, design professionals and enthusiasts who just love interior design. I am so happy to be here as guest blogger for Miss Cheeky Chic. Today's topic combines three of my passions decorating ideas, shabby chic dÈcor and outdoor living. Enjoy!

The imperfect, faded qualities of shabby chic make it a wonderful style for outdoor living. Chipped painted tables, mismatched antique linens, vintage garden chairs all look romantic and glamorous when brought out of doors for shabby chic living. We hope you find these inspiring to create your own shabby chic outdoor living spaces.

Nothing says shabby chic style like tons of white washed whites and faded florals. Love the sailcloth shade.

Shabby chic glam outdoors makes us think of faeries and magical dreams like Midsummer's Night Dream. Linens and fabrics can easily create a shabby chic space anywhere outdoors.

From the book, Junk Beautiful: Outdoor Edition, we found this fantastic shabby chic outdoor space created from mismatched finds and a pair of fantastic metal porch chairs.

Love the bed and antique chair brought outside to create a shabby chic outdoor living space. Feels whimsical.

Create an elegant shabby chic outdoor dining table with vintage linens, crystal vases and glassware. Picnic tables don't have to mean paper plates and plastic forks.

A shabby chic doily version of Tibetan pray flags was found on a wedding site but we think it would be perfect for a garden party for any occasion. So beautiful.

Yes, someday soon (too soon for some, not soon enough for others) summer will turn to fall. Love the paisley throw on the cabin porch-- looks like a great place for a cup of tea and a book.

What would a shabby chic space be without a vintage chandelier or two? This sun porch feels like another room of the house yet is open to the outdoors and garden. Some of these great ideas would work equally well indoors in shabby chic living room designs.
