Bi-Weekly Build Challenge, Week 109: Shabby Chic Spring Cottages!

Think of visiting with your grandmother, snuggled in comfortable soft furniture. Fresh flowers look beautiful and the soft scent of candles fills the room. It's cozy with a touch of romance! Cottage-style homes are distinguished by their comfy, welcoming appearance and are typically quite small (one or two stories). Similar to eclectic style, shabby chic doesn't exactly adhere to a strict set of design guidelines, trends, or rules. Shabby chic balances elegant contemporary pieces with old and worn ones; combining patterns and colors, such as stripes, checks, and floral fabrics to achieve a warm and inviting look. It is a comfortable, casual decorating style with a look that uses vintage accessories, pastels, and comfortable furniture. Because shabby chic style is so adaptable, it's a perfect way to decorate any type of home. With the focus on warmth and comfort, everyone will be comfortable!

Key Elements:

  • Soft delicate colors (soft white, muted gray, pale pink, and faded green all have a place in a shabby chic interior).

  • Combined patterns and colors, such as stripes, checks, and floral fabrics to achieve a warm and inviting look.

  • Shingled, stucco walls, balconies, small porches, gable roofs, and bay windows.

  • Flowers, candles, and other ambient decorations.

Residential properties only. Must be fully functional. (TIP: Consider using cheats to unlock debug/hidden items and to place objects more freely!)
