Rustic Ranch or French Shabby Chic

Rustic Ranch or French Shabby Chic…What do you like best? as we are a bit in between styles at the moment…the MOVE that we have been planning for ages has had a bit of a set back and for now we are just going to stay here…although it not being the best situation, as we have no downstairs loo and Freddy is still sleeping in the ‘all singing – all dancing’ bed in the dining room…(above) and in the meantime!  we are going slightly mad, but at least we are going slightly mad together!

We have a new car, which has enabled us to get out and about together.  It has been adapted for Freddy’s needs and is more safe for me to drive his scooter and wheelchair in and out of, rather than me running myself over every time I used the fold out ramp!…which is all good, as there was a risk of Freddy’s only carer (ME) ending up in a bed next to him, in the dining room and us both being bed bound! So thank goodness for the disabled vehicle!

Anyways…as to the style of the house…well imagine two peeps intent on moving, packing up half of their belongings…buying some new stuff for their new house…then house falling through, and then getting depressed!…thus leaving house in total Pandemonium! Yep! you’ve got it! That’s us right now!…so Thank Heavens for the new car!…We are getting out as much as we can to escape the mess that we have now created here! (see pic 2!)

And to top it all! Freddy now wants a more modern style of decor and I don’t!

Stupid me really, for agreeing that I did, in order to start the ball rolling with the move!

My Idea is a pared back look, getting rid of most of the kitsch and sticking to our old style of French shabby chic (see pic 3)

Whereas Freddy is thinking more this kind of thing! (above)


He wants this kind of style with more modern pieces and he keeps picking up modern pieces that are a teal and mustard colour!…all I can say is that it is going to end very very badly indeed! and there will be a lot of fighting and arguing, that much is sure!

See Here and Here the styles that we have ended up with…we keep changing it as it is harder to decorate a modern property…I prefer older styles.

What interior style do you like best?
