How do you inject the wow factor into your home? UK Blogger Claire Chanelle from lifestyle blog Chouquette channels modern glamour in her house, and some of her favourite furniture includes her pieces from Timothy Oulton.
Claire is a fashion stylist with a passion for travel and interior design. Her blog is aimed at encouraging people to enjoy fashion, fitness, and to inspire others with her lifestyle, going by the mantra “You can achieve anything if you try hard enough”.
Claire recently revealed a sneak peek of the new filming area in her home, which she is currently refurbishing. The old unused snooker table had to go, and in its place the perfect sofa had to be found. Cue the Serpentine in Revival Velvet Navy, which Claire call her “super model sofa, ready for a life of photos”.
Next to the sofa stands Claire’s “killer mirror”, the Rex. Ultra-glam with a hint of industrial, the Rex adds the wow factor in abundance. Claire says she loves her Rex mirror so much she’d “swap my Hermes etain baby Birkin for it.” Claire first spotted the Rex at the Harrods gallery three years ago and knew she had to have it. Its instant glamour mixed with some masculinity suits Claire’s personality down to a tee.
Another room that Claire describes as her “happy place” is her lounge. She had been searching for two years to find the perfect wow lighting for it, until she discovered the Timothy Oulton Odeon Marble pendant. This piece is pretty special, because Timothy Oulton is one of the only companies in the world to use marble in its lighting collection. Claire says: “The ingots are the exact style I love, bright white with natural but deep dark veins. The light blends through the marble and it truly is a piece of art (multitasking as a practical light fixture).”
To create the wow factor, Claire always looks for pieces of furniture that will make a room, and Timothy Oulton’s unique and daring designs resonate perfectly with her statement sense of style.
