HELLO, I'M KIRSTI!
How did I end up here?
My name is Kirsti Coley. I am originally from Wiltshire, England, but recently moved to the beautiful part of France that is the Haute-Vienne to renovate an old property and run ‘Le Hibou Chic’. I love all things France, but not only wanted to live here, but also to have my own shop and bring up a family.
My love of design came to me when I started playing with different paints to upcycle a few pieces of furniture when I was living in the UK. After several frustrating and failed attempts with other brands of chalk paint, I discovered Frenchic. One workshop later and I was firmly hooked. I’d found my paint and my passion. I was very lucky in finding a fantastic teacher in Lynn, she helped me to fully understand the Frenchic paints and then I developed my own style.
