The shabby / cottage style is so varied in its design! It can range from old flea market finds to very sophisticated victorian fancy decor. I call it Primitive to Prissy. :-) I really like the old chippy distressed look. The more distressed the better! My husband still cannot understand why I want to buy something new for the house provided it looks old!
Old architectural pieces on each side of the hearth and old chippy window screens camouflaging the fireplace screen gives it a very unique look (window screens are removed when using the fireplace, of course).
Then there are the pink shutters.......
