Its characteristics are worn-out materials, antique furniture, Chinese porcelain dishes and cups, pastel colors and vintage chandeliers.

As for the plants and the design of the shabby chic garden, the space must seem random, even a little wild. Choose and plant a wide variety of plants to accentuate the look of your garden. You can opt for an arbor of vines or cedar and decorate it with climbing roses and other climbing species such as wisteria, trumpet vines and ivy, for example. Choose annuals such as geranium in vintage and worn-looking planters such as woven baskets or terracotta pots, for example.

What you can also do is decorate your garden with a vintage tub with feet and fill it with different cooking herbs or cut the middle of the seat of a vintage chair and insert a colorful flower pot.
