I love French chic style furniture and when I was younger
this was like a must have bedroom! I think we all had this moment in our lives.
Even as a grown up I had my bedroom in a French chic style before I have moved
to this apartment! Whenever I speak to people and mention French chic, people automatically
give me answer- its soo expensive to create that! Here I am again, your rescue
to find the style, explain the style and make you style your furnish your bedroom
without the price tag!
There few things you need to have in mind if you want to
create French Chic bedroom:
1. Furniture style. It’s very easy to get lost
here. Look for the ornament types, the leg types and shapes. Basically you want
to match you dressing table to side table and cabinet. It’s very easy to mix it
wrong! When you buy online furniture, there are not always collections and
often to save money we just tend to pick cheaper options. This isn’t a problem if
you know what to pick! I have showed a pretty example below on what works what
doesn’t! Is the leg design matching? Remember, leg need to be the same so the
2. Finish of the handle. Is it copper, bronze or
maybe gold? I mean gold and silver works in jewelery but I wouldn’t say particularly
when it comes to furniture so be careful with that.
3. Metal or iron finishes. You can mix metal curved
iron bed as long you have few other items and the curve direction matches the
furniture direction. French design is very delicate. When you have generic of topamax Shabby chic-
then you have more vintage and heavier furniture. Here, you want to ‘’fly’’ in
your bedroom. I know sounds super silly, but basically you want to feel fresh
and light, not overwhelmed with heavy furniture. Metal frame bed like this below cost £95! Bargain!
4. Mirror, mannequin and screen it’s a must!
Basically, this will make your bedroom complete. Try to go for screen with
elegant print on. This mannequin is for example £35 at homesdirect365.com
5. Price!It doesn’t have to be pricey! Look online for French bedroom furniture. You have plenty of ideas, and always click ‘’ lowest price
first’’ saves you scrolling! You can grab side tables from as low as £50 and dressing table from £130
6. Check your local carboot and check gumtree or
ebay! Look for the specific shapes and you can always repaint that ugly dark
7. Delivery. Try to search into website where you
can get most of the items from same place. It will save you few pennies. Furniture
delivery are the most expensive and once the company is sending you one item,
usually if go over certain price, the rest will be delivered for free!
8. Website. Check the website first before placing the
order. Is the phone number visible? Is the office hours visible? When something
goes wrong you need this!
That’s it I think. Creating French chic bedroom I
think can be easy and enjoyable. As you can see it doesn’t have to be pricey,
as this pretty much cover same price as typical high street store. Would you
