After a mesmerizing visit to France, traveller’s come home with the colours, textures and delicate designs still fresh in their minds, the scent of lavender never failing to enhance the soft decor they’ve just witnessed. It’s no wonder they want to incorporate some of France’s elegance back in their own homes.
French Country style is known for natural country side colours such as sunflower yellow, terracotta red, lavender and French blue. When the colors and textures including accents and furniture are applied to today’s more urban decorating we end up softening and/or creating a comfy atmosphere where family and friends can bask in each other’s company. Homes appear mystical with their rustic stone exteriors and elegant interiors with splashes of French Country style.
The French Country style when applied to main rooms such as kitchens, eating areas, living rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms, halls and corridors, and the connecting outdoor rooms may appear somehow carefree and simplistic but well situated and positioned accents, fabrics and furniture brings home the perfect French Country flare we all enjoy so much.
Today’s modern contemporary styles can leave homeowners feeling cold and unwelcome. The harsh lines and stainless steel kitchens leave little room for comfort. French Country is making a comeback while homeowners desperately embrace the comfort and warmth the old world country style generates, but with a modern twist. Who says you can’t have both the convenience and simplicity of contemporary with a blend of the warm ambience of French Country. With the two styles combined you acquire a toned down version of the new country style, while never failing to revive the beauty that French décor creates.
