I had heard a few months ago that Shabby Chic was closing a couple of their stores due to this awful economy, but I just found out that now ALL of the Shabby Chic stores will be closing! I am so sad about this!
I have always looked forward to the day that I could visit one of these gorgeous stores in person, but living in FL I have just never gotten around to it. I have all of the books and DVDs which are just chock full of beautiful images. So lovely.
The Shabby Chic line for Target will continue but while beautiful, it's just not the same. Sniff...
I would not say that my house is decorated in the "Shabby Chic" style but there are slight influences for sure. My overly floral decor days are over, although I still like the look when I see it in a cute cottage. Actually, come to think of it, all of my Shabby Chic sheets and pillow cases now reside in Lil P's room.
Have any of you been to a Shabby Chic store? Did you pick up any beautiful things?
Do you think it is totally due to the recession, or is the Shabby Chic "look" just not popular any more?
