Classic, effortless and chic are just a few examples to describe a Parisian’s style and the way they decorate their homes is no different. If you follow us, you may have seen us sharing living room and bathroom decorating ideas like a Parisian. Today’s summary is dedicated to the most sacred place in every home – the bedroom.
Parisian homes are all about light hues: keep walls and curtains a calm white and add small, muted colors, although it’s not necessary – you can keep everything neutral. You can opt for a wooden floor clad in a dark herringbone pattern that contrasts the walls and looks cooler.
Mixing modern and traditional styles in an understated way is fantastic. While we don’t all have high ceilings, antique fireplaces, and herringbone wooden floors like many French people, it’s an easy way to mix up your classics with more urban pieces like colorful plastic chairs, fun rugs, distressed wood, unusual lamps, or other art prints to complement the to create versatile looks and add a bit of playfulness.
The French are known for their flea markets. No wonder, then, that Parisians have mastered a rustic look full of character while still achieving elegance. Buy an antique statement like a bureau, a chandelier or even an iron bed frame as the centerpiece of the room. Compliment with soft, feminine furnishings like ruched beds and silk drapes.
Parisians know how to embellish and almost always have a vase full of flowers, scattered literature or a beautiful rug somewhere in their home. Perfect for that relaxed look we all envy. Place an exposed hanging rail or stack of books on the floor. Even adding seating and faux fur to your bedroom can blur the line between rooms.
