The term “shabby chic” was coined by interior designers who realized that distressed furniture could make an impact in the home. It tends to be a cottage by the sea style of woods and pastel colors. Today this trend actually incorporates styles from other locations including India, the Middle East, and even Latin America. In fashion, the term "BoHo" is used to describe any garment that looks at all ethnic in nature.

It all began in the 1970s in a runway collection by Yves St. Laurent. BoHo or Shabby Chic is now consider a classic and is timeless. Most of the time, the shabby chic BoHo look works great at seaside resorts as the clothing is made out of lighter weight cotton gauze.

This can be a lot of fun, because it offers pieces that capture the imagination but without care, it can be overdone and instead of shabby chic it is just plain shabby.
