Dreaming of Dressing Tables…
Unfortunately my bedroom barely has room to walk round the bed, let alone have a stunning dressing table, but I can wish.
Dressing tables are a girls dream, somewhere to store all our trinkets and treasures, from jewellery to make up and a perfect space to sit at leisure and prepare for the day, rather than balancing the makeup box in the bathroom, shared with the whole family in the morning rush!!
Take a look at Chichi Furniture’s gorgeous dressing tables below and allow yourself to be a princess just for a moment (there’s always that Christmas list!!)
Happy weekend :O)
Embracing the seasons can be fun when it comes to home decor and doesn’t have to mean re-decorating. We can all get bored with the same old cycle of change each year, but it can be fun to use each season as a time to mix up our homes a bit.
Follow natures unfaltering lead with colour, adding some autumnal hues to your home with a few accent furniture pieces.

Had a hard day? Take a load off and ‘Laze on a Chaise’ from Chichi Furniture.
Extremely comfortable, extremely stylish and extremely French Chic!
They make stunning features for a lounge, bedroom or hallway, be it as a centre piece, or a lift for an empty alcove, often with beautifully carved detailing and upholstered in either an elegant chic fabric or something vibrant and striking.
Well, its September and autumn is officially on its way. The days are feeling a tiny bit colder and the darkness is creeping into our homes earlier than we would like!
So to combat that sad syndrome and lack of light in your life feeling, add a fantastic French style mirror to your rooms.
Mirrors are a fabulous instant quick fix, they are beautiful features that can really bring a style together and in addition they reflect oodles of extra light around a room. They create a focal point, therefore making a room feel more cohesive and not disjointed. You may have a large empty wall where a piece of art work might be just a bit too much, but a mirror would be perfect, they are stylishly indiscreet, filling a space without looking too much.
Hip Hooray we’ve made it to Friday!!
Chichi Furniture’s Room Inspiration today is a Rustic Style Dining Room – and this is one of my personal faves.
It encompasses all things homely and inviting. That French farmhouse feel, with a large family dining table and chairs, creating a dining room that will be a social hub with warm tones and a relaxed environment. Beautiful solid wooden furniture in its natural form and/or painted in neutral and pastel shades, with a distressed finish evokes a relaxed environment. Sometimes when things are too perfect, people don’t relax for fear of damaging something.
Adding a beautiful ivory mirror would look great in this scheme, but maybe even more effective would be a gold framed mirror, which would just add a new dimension to the natural elements and teamed with an understated chandelier to create a well balanced but multi layered room.
Good morning everyone, it’s certainly getting colder here and it’s Monday – not a great combination for inducing happiness, so Chichi Furniture’s Room inspiration today is glamour and glitz. We’re talking all out indulgence and warming up the scheme with golds and silvers.
We are still on the dining theme, so below are some fabulous furniture pieces to help create that chic, stylish room to wow all your guests. Don’t hold back, with golds and silvers you can get away with large, bold pieces, the furniture can be fabulously ornate, super size the chandelier and layer the room with textures and detailing.
Maybe consider adding one extra key colour to break up the mass of gold/silver so as to appreciate it more. Maybe add a feature chair in a corner, hang beautiful curtains at the window, if the floor is wooden you could have a large coloured rug to lift the scheme.
Whether you go silver or gold, have fun with this one and let your creativity run free :O)
As we near the end of another week, we reach the second Chichi Furniture post on dining.
Today its all about the ‘dark side’. No light and bright today, its all about creating an intimate snug environment. You wouldn’t necessarily consider black as ‘warm’, but a room painted in dark inky colours, with dark furniture and lit with candles and a sparkling chandelier, can be very cosy and atmospheric.
It doesn’t have to be completely without light though, black is a strong visual colour and perfect for creating that stand out feature. You could decide to have light decor with the striking contrast of black dining set, you don’t want it to look awkward though, so ensure there are other black features in the room to pull the look together, a sideboard, mirror for example.
Introduce a colour, maybe have a two toned unit (like the black and green display cabinet below) – you could then add a matching table runner, or a stunning vase full of greenery. Adding layers to the room to blend the design together is so important to create a balanced, cohesive look.
Finally you could decide to turn to the dark side in a gradual way by adding just a ‘touch of black’ and choosing a black framed dining set that has matching upholstered chairs in a paler colour to soften the look.
Whichever you choose, black is a stylish, chic colour, so have fun creating that dark ambient space.
