A Patchwork Decor

These days decoration turns to travel and escape, in order to bring sweetness in your living space. Add a touch of authenticity to your home by mixing trends, shabby chic, broc’arty, boho chic and a nomadic spirit with ethnic-inspired natural materials and travel memorabilia.
It is the return of plant fibers such as rattan and braided wicker, which are incorporated into cushions, lights and baskets, and caning is back on furniture, armchairs, chairs and lighting. This weaving technique that has fallen into disuse promises a chic and natural note to your interior.
We add a little deco in driftwood, furniture in aged wood, bamboo, jute, natural comes in raw materials, washed, bleached.
Shabby Chic Style
The Shabby Chic style has become a must of decoration. With its romantic English cottage style or New England style, it brings an air of freshness and elegance to your interior as well as a soft and dreamy touch. This is the bohemian and elegant decor, through very bright rooms, a romantic atmosphere and a touch of vintage.
Old furniture made of weathered wood with worn effect, bleached wood and flower motifs is preferred. The antique furniture finds a second life with a touch of paint patina in light colors. One takes out farm tables, buffets with authentic patina, chests of drawers, semainiers, chiffoniers, seed dealers, antique mirrors, picture frames and candlesticks.
Natural colors are adopted, white, beige, washed colors like water green, hints of blue for a Mediterranean inspiration and yellow to warm the atmosphere. We put on materials such as cotton or linen for soft and natural linens.
Boho Chic Style
The Boho chic style is a mix of ethnic, hippie, oriental and rock styles. We opt for bohemian materials: macramé, cotton, rattan, solid wood, bleached wood, feathers, hanging plant holders, fringed carpets, tables topped with candles, hanging chairs in braided resin and hammocks.
Finally, one transforms his interior into a cabinet of curiosities, it integrates his travel memories that combine different elements drawn from crafts, traditions, nature, travel.
It’s all the art of mixing what you have found and what you like personally.
The Lodge spirit, exotic chic, comes with braided fibers such as raffia, rattan, wicker or resin, which play with openwork patterns and introduces metal mixed with light wood.
We love outdoor canopy beds, wooden or braided sofas and armchairs, metal and wood coffee tables, hanging chairs, rattan rocking chairs, folding Chileans from our childhood, white braided and fringed hammocks and umbrellas in canvas.
We opt for fiber-imitation outdoor lamps or metal lanterns, large garden pots to highlight your favorite plants, and baskets.
And do not hesitate to put rugs, cushions with plant prints, beanbags and foutas, your ideal accomplices.
