Another Monday, another week, it comes round so quick!
Today our final hallway inspiration is stylish black. Make an impact with your entrance.
Black can be sleek, elegant and bold. You can create a crisp clean lined look, or a softer look by adding a few lighter tones or a highlight colour like silver or gold – add a few cushions on the sofa, a rug on the floor, a few choice ornaments on the console.
Adding a mirror will ensure there is plenty of light in the space, as although the furniture is black, you don’t want the space to feel closed in and ‘heavy’.
Below are a few stylish black pieces from Chichi, ideal for a hallway. Both consoles have an elegant curved shape instantly adding character and one has delicate vine leaf detail which breaks up the solid block of black if you want a more toned down look. The stunning seat is upholstered in velvet which adds texture and depth and offers that luxurious finish, the silver detail makes it less intrusive, as also seen with the single chair edged in silver.
If you have space, adding a bookshelf to an entranceway can be a great way to fill what can be difficult and sometimes wasted space. It can add interest and character too and again the collection of books itself can tone down the solid black.
Hello and welcome to a new week and another new scheme from Chichi Furniture :O)
Today we are still talking Hallways, but this time we looking at French rustic style.
This is possible one of my favorites. Country farm style pieces, creating an entrance way that instantly welcomes you in. Finished in modern pastel shades for that subtle touch of colour, with a distressed look added charm and warmth.
Picture a beautifully natural stone clad floor, neutral coloured walls, beautiful solid wood doors and French style console tables or dressers – with spring flowers, a wicker key basket and candles. Add a feature chair or sofa to give a relaxed feel to the space and Voila – C’est Parfait!
Happy hump day everyone :O)
Today at Chichi Furniture, we are talking entrance ways/hallways. A room that is often neglected, yet is so important. Its the first impression people get of our homes so should be welcoming, warm and stylish.
Granted, they can be tricky rooms, often small and awkward or vast and echoey. The best thing to do is treat it as any other room, rather than a through way.
We will start with the ‘grand’ entrance way. That vast room that has the potential to make a huge impact as you open that front door, rather than being cold and characterless.
Choose large ornate French pieces for this grand room, maybe add an upholstered chair/chaise to add colour and texture and ensuring a more relaxed feel. Choose rich, sumptuous colours, golds and silvers to add warmth to the large space and create striking visual impact as you enter the room. Hang a large chandelier to drawer the ceiling down. You don’t want the furniture to look lost or awkward, you want it to all work together, add a large ornate console and mirror, texture, colour and pattern will add to the charm of the space, but ensure you make it work together and don’t just plonk it in odd areas, make it a useable space.
Don’t forget to look at the floor, adding a rug or tiling it in stunning decorative tiles can really complete a design, but make sure you keep a balance between patterns/colours, you want it to gel and not look chaotic. If you choose a heavily patterned floor, keep the upholstered furniture (if you choose any) simple, so its not lost.
Todays post is all about colour :O)
We all need a little colour in our lives. Colour can completely transform a space and our mood. Sometimes when you look at a room it just needs that little something extra – colour.
It doesn’t have to mean a total re-paint. Just adding a feature piece of vibrant furniture can really lift a space, adding dimension and depth.
