How to Bring French Chic to Your Home


French inspired interiors have always been a favourite of designers, and the mixture of old and new design makes the look such a classic and desirable trend for any home décor. Here are some tips on how to inject some French style into your home, including local suppliers of French furniture that you can find in the South West. Choosing the Right Style Make sure that you focus on a specific French theme that you want to go for, perhaps you’ll opt for a rustic country style, or you may be more inclined towards the Parisian romance trend. This decision may be influenced by the style of building you live in, or even the location too. It’s important that you consider how to make the most of the space you have and what pieces will work with such aspects as the ceiling height, flooring and the age of the building, as being thorough like this can make the end results more impactful. This is especially important if you are introducing the French style to a property you are in the process of renovating. When deciding upon a suitable colour scheme, consider using a couple of key colours with a range of the typical muted tones of the French style, as this will help you to bring direction and flow to the scheme, whether this is for one room or more. French-inspiration There are a number of websites that have some really great ideas and tips on how to put a French interior style together. Try Pinterest pages or home interior magazines if you’re in need of some inspiration and to see what approach would be best for you and your home. Finding Furniture The French Bedroom Company is an English based company that stock a wide choice of shabby-chic bedroom furniture and linen for you to enjoy. Perfect if you are a lover of the elegant charm that this trend offers. Take a look at their collections including the Delphine, Parisian and Normandy ranges, which are flawlessly crafted. They also have a boutique showroom in West Sussex which is worth checking out for some luxury pieces and inspiration. Antique showrooms can also be great places to visit if you are on the hunt for French influenced homeware. French furniture often has intricate attention to detail and can be easy to spot. Accessories Complete the look with some French inspired finishing touches such as lace fabric, lavender in vases, French artwork, and of course a bottle of Wine or two. You can find many modern items that have been created with French influences, such as accessories with snippets of the French language that can really help to pull the overall theme together. For a luxury look use mirrors with large gold frames and intricate chandeliers. It is also a good to use accent coloured accessories to add interesting features to the room.
