Hello there and welcome to number 9 of Chichi Furniture’s Top 20 Fabulous French Pics.
Devine Nine is all about starting your day like a princess, sat at our gorgeous ‘Alice’ Silver Dressing Table.
In the picture below it’s as if the corner of this room was made specifically for this piece, the beautifully curved frame with hand carved detailing fills the space, but does not look over-imposing. Silver is an elegant, sophisticated colour, but is not heavy or over bearing, in this room it stands out as a real feature against the stylish dark carpet, blind and upholstered stool. The light coloured walls keep the space open and light, allowing the dressing table to take centre stage.
Perfection, wouldn’t you agree?
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)
Behold the Gold – this weeks bedroom from Chichi Furniture is a touch of opulence. Celebrating all things extravagant.
Some of the featured pieces draw on the Rococo era, being decorative and ornate – simply works of art in the form of furniture.
This room is the mother of all things flamboyant and all that we love about French furniture, heavily carved, beautifully upholstered, large statement pieces. Each item is a feature in itself with beautiful detailing and design.
In rooms like this, you can dream big, add a bedroom chair to ensure the room doesn’t have to just be for sleeping in, hang a beautiful mirror on the wall and complete the look with a huge sparkling chandelier for that romantic boudoir feel.
E is for the beautiful, chic and stylish ‘Elise Range‘.
This range has taken French Style and given it a modern twist, the end result – a stunning contemporary range with simplistic elegance, bold lines and carvings and finished in stylish moulin noir black.
The beautiful beds feature hand woven head and footboards, with a traditional rattan finish. This softens the style so it will still hold a strong presence in your room, without being overbearing and appearing ‘too heavy/bulky’.
The accompanying units are finished with antiqued brass handles to create a gorgeous visual contrast, giving each unit a subtle lift.
Hooray, we’ve made it to Friday and today Chichi Furniture’s chosen letter is D.
D is for Decorative Dressing Tables/Rooms. One of the charming features of French style furniture is that its effortlessly elegant, ornate and full of character. It’s often adorned with carvings and decorative features which create stunning pieces to add such glamour to your home.
Our Dressing tables will help you to create a Boudoir to be admired, encompassing all there is to feel fabulous. These first examples drawer on the Rococo era, elaborate and heavily carved, finished in fabulous Gold, Silver, Black or Ivory, these pieces will certainly take centre stage in your room.
The second style is our beautiful Amelie Range – more understated than the Rococo style, but still a real feature for you room. More delicately shaped, with highlighted trim.
Thirdly we have a beautiful ‘Elise Dressing Table’ in Silver featuring more subtle curves and detailing and the Oh so stylish ‘Alice Dressing Table’, a more modern/contemporary piece, still with carved detailing but strong lines and finished in Moulin Noir Black.
Finally to ensure your Boudoir is complete, finish off the look with a beautiful bench or chair, a stunning floor standing mirror and for that final princess touch – a chandelier to shower you in sparkling light.
It’s party season, where glitz and glam is what its all about. I think everyone likes to put on glad rags and feel a bit glitzy every now and then and what better place to get ready than sat at a gorgeous dressing table and mirror surrounded by all those girly necessities to complete the look.
Granted, not all rooms allow us to be so extravagant, but creating a Boudoir doesn’t always require a big space. Its about adapting and using the space to its advantage. Obviously a stunning dressing table and mirror is the dream, but maybe you could just add a gorgeous standing mirror in a corner, draping jewellery over the top and have a mini table and drawers to store make-up.
Hang a stunning, French ornate mirror on the wall above a smaller vanity table, or, place a blanket box or upholstered bench at the end of your bed to lounge upon whilst getting ready. You can then store your stunning range of handbags/shoes and accessories in the blanket box.
Room divides are a fabulous way of sectioning of part of a room, giving you the sense of another space without having to extend your home!!
