A-Z French Style, Shabby Chic Furniture from Chichi
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)
