If you’re looking for a bit of French country, in the city, look no further than Meuse Boutique on West 4th, a gorgeous Eurpoean inspired home decor and retail shop, specializing in French/Belgian design and soft romantic living.
The owner, Verle Davies, has created her own French Country Chalk Paint for your own projects at home, which I can tell you from personal experience, it’s amazing and doesn’t have that strong chemical smell like many other paints out there. The array of soft pastel colours available brings you right inside the Palace of Versailles, or shifts your imagination to a grey, yet gorgeous, day in London. You can see it in person used on the majority of the refurbished furniture available for rent and purchase in the shop.
From vintage vanities and chandeliers to shabby chic wardrobes or an elaborate bed frame, you’re sure to fall in love with something painted with the glorious invention, chalk paint, inside Meuse. Don’t want to do it yourself? They are also available for on-site design services and furniture painting services!
