The Look: Shabby Chic Decor In Our Favorite Hotels (PHOTOS)

We're all about a funky hotel or two, but some of the coziest spots are those with shabby-chic decor -- just homey enough to be comforting, while still packing in a lot of style. Shabby-chic hotel design is a study in the art of textural contrasts: vintage leather, velvet furniture, deliberately faded rugs, woods, and rich prints all add to the look. And when shabby-chic is done well, the end result is impressively style-conscious, yet more livable than some, shall we say more modern, spots we've visited.

So today we're giving a photo tour of our favorite hotels that have the shabby-chic vibe down pat. Get inspired -- and get the look!
