Chic finds for the home….

Beautiful things, Interiors

As we shop for our wardrobes at the change of season we can shop for our homes. Adapting our homes to the warmer or cooler months means little changes can make summer feel so much cooler and winter all that more cosy. Going from heavy, lined curtains to light linen, a mohair throw to a  white cotton version or a Persian carpet to nothing! Listed below are some Chic Finds suggestions. Enjoy

Changing seasons and chic finds!

Beautiful things, Interiors

Inspired by the changing season, ChicFinds see’s texture and patchwork, boucle and soft tones…

Fabric is a passion and it has endless possibilities. The capacity of fabric to dress and style a room, a person, a garden is unique and it has the ability to allow for changing spaces. A cushion collection can be blue tones for the month of summer and with a change of slip, browns and yellows for Autumn.

ChicFinds would like you to send in a photo of your space, could be your living room, garden, bedroom which ever space you like and we will suggest to you a cusion collection that could suit your space. Please sign up to Chicfinds or leave us a comment and photo and we will get back to you as soon as we have found the look for you!

Send in your picture and we will fill it with cushion’s  in fabrics that will accentuate the beauty of your space.

Look forward to hearing from you. X

Chicfinds inspires lighting from the past

Interiors

There is probably not a more important element in the home than lighting. Of course comfort in seating and so on is of up most important but you can be seated in absolute luxury  but if you are sitting in neon lighting something is Wrong! Lighting is what creates an atmosphere more than anything else and since modern architecture a lot of lighting has become a part of the home, in the ceiling, walls and floors. It does enhance the structure of your home when you have ceiling lighting and even better, floor and wall but it is a must to compliment it with side lights or lights with beautiful shades. I love wall lights, they are so romantic and create a pathway and a feeling of intimacy. Lighting is so elegant and so much a part of a home’s decor that you can not ignore its complete necessity.Lights are a way of loving ourselves and our space, they break the shadows and light up a corner and a space in such a perfect way.
