French style furniture
French style can mean so many things in interior design from the understated pale aged shabby chic look to the ornate and grand rococo style to the more recent revival of boudoir style chic using jewel colours paired with gold. French style furniture is rarely modern in design.
The French country chateau look or shabby chic look would be furnishings that are possibly rustic and gentile in look and design, whereas the rococo look is usually bold, rich in colour and excessively designed, whilst the boudoir look can hint at both of these areas including the sumptuous and ornate rococo look paired with aged and slightly more effortless French style furniture.
Rococo is a style of 18th century French art and interior design. Rococo style rooms were originally designed as total works of art with elegant and ornate furniture, small sculptures, ornamental mirrors, and tapestry complementing architecture, reliefs, and wall paintings. It was largely supplanted by the Neoclassic style of French style furniture.
The word Rococo is seen as a combination of the French rocaille, or shell, and the Italian barocco, or Baroque style. Due to Rococo love of shell-like curves and focus on decorative arts, some critics used the term to derogatively imply that the style was frivolous or merely fashion; interestingly, when the term was first used in English in about 1836, it was a colloquialism meaning "old-fashioned". However, since the mid 19th century, the term has been much more accepted as French style furniture. While there is still some debate about the historical significance of the style to art in general, Rococo is now widely recognized as a major period in the development of European art.
The word boudoir meaning a lady’s private bedroom, sitting room or dressing room. The term derives from the French bouder, meaning "to pout" with regards to French style furniture.
Historically, the boudoir formed part of the private suite of rooms of a lady, for bathing and dressing, adjacent to her bedchamber. In later periods, the boudoir was used as a private drawing room and was used for other activities, such as entertaining intimate acquaintances.
This is not just a look for bedrooms but an overall look that incorporates both shabby chic, rococo and baroque influences usually in rich warm colours and golds and black.

What is vintage?
The term is best used when referring to wine as below,
-making, is the process of picking
and creating the finished product. A
vintage wine is one made from grapes that were all, or primarily, grown in a single specified year. In certain wines it can denote quality, as in
, where Port houses make and declare "vintage" Port in their best years. From this tradition, a common, though incorrect, usage applies the term to any wine that is perceived to be particularly old or of a particularly high quality.
Most countries allow a vintage wine to include a portion of wine that is not from the year denoted on the label. In Chile and South Africa, the requirement is 75 percent same-year content for vintage-dated wine. In Australia, New Zealand, and the member states of the European Union the requirement is 85 percent. In the United States the requirement is 85%, unless the wine is designated with an
, (e.g., Russian River Valley), in which case it is 95%. Technically, the 85% rule in the United States applies equally to foreign imports, but there are obvious challenges in enforcing the regulation.
The opposite of a vintage wine is a
nonvintage wine, which is usually a blend from the produce of two or more years. This is a common practice for winemakers seeking a consistent style of wine, year on year
