A-Z French Style, Shabby Chic Furniture from Chichi

Well here we go – letter ‘Y’ and equally as tricky as ‘X’, so i’m going to be inventive and say, ‘Y’ is for ‘Yin and Yang’ – as a contrast of two colours to create a dramatic visual affect in a room.

Blending and matching colours in a room creates a ‘safe’ comfortable space, but sometimes its fun to jazz it up a bit and create a design statement. Choosing two vivid contrasting colours in a scheme can change the dynamic and dimension of a space – almost creating an illusion. Two ways of doing this is either to paint the room one colour and furnish in another – e.g a vast white room with bold black furniture can look so stylish. Or, be more subtle and introduce contrasting colours by way of two toned furniture (as per below examples), so the room doesn’t necessarily have to be as dramatic when you first walk in, but there are a few choice pieces of furniture that really stand out.

In the same way choosing to have gorgeous chic bed against an unfinished brick wall can look striking, especially if finished with a large sparkling chandelier hanging from a concrete ceiling, it adds dimension and intrigue. Mixing up pattern/texture and colour can be fun and have great results :O)
