Have you been to Merci in Paris? You know that lifestyle store that has a design cult following from all over the world…I guess that includes me!
Take a detour, you will be happy you did located at 111 Beaumarchais Boulevard in Le Marias.
Merci never disappoints because they are on the cutting edge of style in fashion as well as home decor.
The vibe…very busy with trendy people from all over the world…coming to see the newest textures, substrates, colors and style updates!
Today at Merci they were designing custom chair tops from a powder substance that allows the customer to design their very own chair on the spot in the store! Pretty awesome, pretty millennial and pretty fast!
The color choices are so vast that each chair has its own personality due to the blending and ombré of color!
For many of us a great way to have your personality pop in your home is to update your style through decorative accessories, perhaps a more affordable option than replacing a sofa, chair or ottoman…and a quick fix to any room in your home!
Choices today can vary through color, material, texture, weave and pattern. Trim detail is another way of adding dimension such as cross stitch accents, metallic trim detailing, fringe, pom-poms and piping.
Most of us have a color scheme defined already by the larger items in our home like a sofa or chair so work with updating these items with colors that will compliment these pieces. Sometimes that means bringing a bit of contrast into the room…it’s not always good to match your pillows to the exact tone of your furniture. Try experimenting with patterns and colors out of your comfort zone to update your style. Many stores today have a 48 hour return policy so you can take home your choices to see you made the right design choice!
Some fun finds both local as well as overseas…
