Brave the bold and create a welcoming space to greet your guests. Take inspiration from Frenchic Fan Abi (over at @thewhitethistle) who teamed our rich, deep, dark green with a black base shade ‘Stirling’ (used on the cabinets, shoe storage and mdf paneling) with our pale beige with a muted smokiness shade ‘Corker’ (on the walls) to compliment and anchor the bold hue. Sealing the shoe cabinet with a loving kiss from our subtle satin finish Finishing Coat.
Steal inspiration from Frenchic Fan Zoe (over at @livingatnumberfourteen) who added a more cosy, lived-in look with the added bonus of storage from this clever IKEA hack! Using 4 Havsta units, MDF and Frenchic, Zoe created a flowing, functional sideboard that cocoons the space in just the right way. Opting for our cosy and welcoming neutral, soft beige shade 'Stone Rosie' and finishing the top with Frenchic Browning Wax to add an aged, rustic faux-wood finish.

Get your hands on that dreamy designer lamp stand for less with this budget friendly hack from Frenchic Fan Stacey (over at @thehawkes_victorianrenovation). Stacey transformed a simple second hand standing lamp from lack-lustre to luxe using fabric, a glue gun, braid trim and Frenchic! Opting for our vibrant, raspberry pink shade ‘Raspberry Punch’ from the Limited Edition Al Fresco Inside/ Outside Range to offer a punchy pop of complimenting colour to the lamp stand and boy’o’boy are we obsessed
Frenchic fan @whogivesapink proves this using our 1 tin of our nice clean white shade ‘Whitey White’ from the self priming and self sealing The Lazy Range on her dresser, drawers, door and woodwork…with some left over! So how much do you really need for your chosen project? A 750ml tin of Al Fresco Range or The Lazy Range will provide a coat of up to 12.5m2, but it is unlikely that coverage will be achieved in a single coat of any colour - we recommend a minimum of 2 coats.
Warm up your walkway and give your staircase a more country cottage feel with our infamous paint hack! Frenchic Fan Leanne (over at @very_lt_interiors) shows us how easy it is to give your bannister a more faux oak finish using our classic cream shade 'Crème de la Crème' from the self priming and self sealing The Lazy Range, along with our durable 'Browning Wax' to add that aged, rustic look to the paint.
