I'm not a big fan of the 'shabby chic' look. In fact, I usually change that second word with a well-placed S and T. Something about all that white washed wood and draped furniture makes me think of powdery sweet room sprays and chubby armed cherubs. Shudder. Still, bias aside, I can't deny the charm of this rather shabby cottage nestled in the Catskills. Although with surroundings as lovely as these, I wouldn't mind if my future home were a mere shack be it shabby or shitty.
