Make a house a home – with French furniture

Monday, June 14th, 2010

Home, as the saying goes, is where the heart is. Home is also where many people invest months – or even years – turning it from a mere ‘bricks and mortar’ house, into a comfortable, personalised dwelling.

As such, home is a place of refuge for many people, a sanctuary from the big wide world outside, somewhere to relax, unwind and spend quality time with their loved ones. It’s for this reason that so many people take a great deal of care in selecting the right furniture, decor, appliances and general layout – a home is a reflection of someone’s taste and personal preferences and for many, it all begins in the bedroom.

The bedroom offers even more personalised space within the wider home, so in a shared abode, people can disappear to their own room for some time to themselves. This is why many people take a great deal of care making their bedroom the star attraction of their home. So where to start?

Well, for that extra special touch of class, you could do a lot worse than bring a little French elegance into the bedroom. Taking centre stage, the iconic French dressing table can take any home to the next level in terms of chic, with a hand-carved antique dressing table with mirror and French stool bringing both function and class to any bedroom.

Naturally, any bedroom needs a bed. To complement the exquisite French dressing table, what better way to lay your head down to rest than with a black antique French bed, with delicate wood carvings and an antique finish?

For the classiest of French bedrooms, you could go all out with a French bedside table, chest of drawers, wardrobe, cheval mirror and console table. The icing on the cake might just be a blanket box, screen and a French mannequin. Now, a mannequin may seem like a step too far for those with more of a leaning towards functionality, but anyone seeking a classic French feel – like something straight from the set of Luis Buñuel’s classic ‘Belle de jour’ – might just want to go that extra step to complete the look.

French bedroom furniture can take many forms, so whether you are a modernist with a penchant for all things contemporary, or have one foot firmly in the 1920s, you will be able to find a style to suit your tastes.

New iPhone 4 – good or bad!

French furniture – In or Out?

Thursday, May 27th, 2010

As you know at Homes Direct 365 we love French furniture: it’s unique, stylish, elegant and embodies the European culture that we’re known around the world for. But that’s us. We’d love to know what you think?

French bedroom furniture can bring an elegance and a romantic touch to your ‘boudoir’ (AKA French boudoir!) then we think there’s nothing better than a luxurious French bed, surrounded by matching French furniture, all hand crafted and distinguished…

But then again, we are not you! Tell us what you think, we’d love to know!
