tattered touches

Hi all!  It’s Mari from Design Shuffle, a fabulous online portal for interior designers and design lovers from around the world. I am so happy to be visiting A White Carousel as a guest blogger.

Today, we’re going to explore the wonderful world of tattered touches in décor. I love interior designs that feature beautiful decorative touches that may seem a bit tattered by time and loving use. We often think of tattered objects in the context of shabby chic rooms, but more and more they’re popping up in today’s traditional spaces. No matter the setting, tattered touches can add a faded elegance. Please enjoy!

This image has an ethereal quality that seems perfect for showing off the tattered touches in a gorgeous                         and rustically glamorous dining space.

Seating that reveals its inner beauty is showing up today in lots of unexpected places like high end showrooms. This ornate chair is so perfectly imperfect.

A vintage kitchen is filled with tattered touches. I love the raveled edges on the coarse textile skirting.

Is anything more gorgeous when decorated with tattered touches than a slightly glamorous feminine bedroom design? Vintage bed linens and window coverings age beautifully, becoming softer and more sumptuous with time.

This totally tattered vintage lamp shade frame is hung with lovely little bits and pieces of lace,

burlap and crochet. A creative way to display favorite vintage finds.

To fuel the imagination

– what lovely decorative touches will be created by the designer from this tattered and torn treasure?

There’s something especially appealing about well-loved antique quilts. Whether used as a wonderful wall hanging, atop a vintage iron bed or simply stacked in an open armoire or cupboard, these aging beauties add their own special look as tattered touches.

Doesn’t this beautiful tattered settee get the creative juices flowing? What visions of lovely decorating ideas this antique lady inspires! Images 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8
