We all know Shabby when we see it. It’s that welcoming pair of pants drying on the radiator. That half-mouldy, but perfectly gin-and-tonic-worthy lemon on display in the fruit bowl. That tin of plum tomatoes in the cupboard with a sell-by date of 1983. It’s never dusting higher than your tallest friend’s line of sight.
But Shabby is more than just an attitude; it’s a quintessentially British way of life, tried and tested for generations, and founded on the Four Central Pillars of Shabbism, Messiness, Dilapidation, Clutter and Bodged Works.
Being Shabby is about spending less time fussing and clearing up and getting stressed out about stuff that doesn’t really matter anyway. And more time hanging out with your family and friends. It’s a celebration of a life that is neither tidy nor empty, but rather one that is splendidly cluttered and full.
Shabby – because life’s just too bloody short to waste time striving for perfection, or caring too much about what other people think about you and yours. Instead of worrying about what could be, it’s time to start celebrating what actually is.
