For years and years, we have viewed white finishes as the go anywhere, with anything finish. White shabby chic is exactly that, the go anywhere, with anything finish. You can add it to virtually any room, and it keeps your color and design choices open. Add a vibrant color for some pop, or keep to the muted tones to keep it fresh and big. Either way, it's an easy way to not to commit to anything, and keep your design/style choices open.
