Decorating with Moss

Do you want a shabby chic feel to your apartment but don’t know how to achieve the look? Decorating with moss can help! Its not all about distressed furniture and antiques, however those do help, but the little elements that can help you get the design you want. I think pairing moss with some “Shabby Chic basics” creates the gardeny, laid back yet fancy feel of the design aesthetic.

When I think of  Shabby Chic accessories I think silver cans, glass orbs, trays, apothecary jars ect. So The Hostess Handbook went out and got a couple of these items on the cheap and paired them with some green moss to create a complete look! Ikea has some great options for decorating with moss and tons of selection. The items are super Cheaptastic which is a big plus for the young, broke and fabulous! You can create this look on a budget no problem. Get your moss at any garden store or order online at Amazon! The Hostess Handbook suggests getting the “Super Moss” preserved reindeer moss because the texture is perfect for filling in items such as cans and glass orbs.

Design a complete look by adding moss around your flower arrangement and breaking up the silver on silver look!

Taadah! Totally Shabby Chic!
