Hooray, it’s Wednesday already, the birds are singing and its not raining!! Which is a good set up to start work.
Following on with our A-Z of French style furniture, we have landed on ‘L’.
‘L’ is for ‘Louis Range’ – the epitome of style, a simply gorgeous range of chest of drawers.
With all the French charm necessary to create a stunning feature in your home, these pieces scream character.
Beautifully shaped with bold carvings and finished either in chic teal blue, black, silver or gold, or for the room that needs a pop of colour, the vibrant orange, aqua or black with the carved detailing highlighted in gold.
Every room needs a key piece to centre a design around and these pieces are ‘it’.
Having been off for a couple of weeks – escaping the glorious British weather! I am now straight back to work and continuing our A-Z of French Style furniture.
We have reached ‘K’ and ‘K’ is for Kitchen Style.
I don’t know about you but I am in my kitchen ‘A LOT’. Mine isn’t vast so isn’t necessarily my ideal style – however that doesn’t mean I can’t dream!! Kitchens need to be functional and easy to move around in, but still need to be an inviting, stylish space, whether it be adding design to walls – like gorgeous tile detail or a chalk paint menu wall, light fittings or having the space to add gorgeous furniture. My kitchen isn’t large enough for a dining table, but I would love a kitchen that doubles up as a cooking come eating space, allowing a lot more style opportunities and freedom with furniture rather than having to stick to standard units that make the most of a small area.
I adore the Farmhouse, rustic look and adding French style rustic units can add such charm. In France it’s all about family and eating together and the kitchen is often the hub of the home. Large sideboards showing off beautiful crockery sets, distressed woods in pastel shades add colour and texture and in the centre, a fabulous table to sit and indulge in the favored social etiquette that is eating with friends and family :O)
‘J’ is for the ‘JOLIE’ Sideboard.
A classic French Style contemporary piece, stylishly finished in silver leaf with a hand applied antique glaze.
C’est tres Jolie!
Good morning. Well today is Thursday and to be honest, another dreary, dull, wet day here in England.
But, we have reached the letter ‘I’ on our A-Z and ‘I’ is for Ivory, which is definitely a colour that will bring a little serenity and calm into your home and a great colour to enhance with a wonderful bunch of bright spring flowers. The thing I love about ‘ivory’ is that its neutral, so easy to contrast with, but can be the main colour in a room without it feeling as cold as pure white. It introduces a rustic/vintage/homely feel to a space. If you want to keep the colour palette neutral but stylish, you can have ornate, heavily carved pieces that give texture and definition, adding depth and style, without adding lots of other colours and making a room feel too busy.
Below are some beautiful pieces that will add charm and character to your abode.
‘H’ is for Happy Home and ‘Happy’ Colours.
Yesterday in England was just dreadful, it was as grey as grey could be, cold, damp and altogether a day to be tucked under a duvet and watching a film. Which brings me to the subject of our homes. Whatever the weather, whatever our moods, our homes are where our hearts and lives are, our sanctuaries, the place we find rest, where we gather with friends and feel inspired.
So, there is no reason why even if its grey outside, our home can’t be full of colour and happiness.
Painted shabby chic furniture is the perfect solution. Its vibrant, stylish and adds an instant pop of colour, immediately lifting a room and creating a stunning feature. Below are some of Chichi Furniture’s fabulous, colourful picks;
Add a vase of flowers and ensure your room has good lighting and some colourful accessories throughout and you need never feel gloomy again!
