French style decor is one of the world’s most enduring styles. I think it has universal appeal bringing together a mix of sophisticated European charm and understated elegance.
French style decor is one of the world’s most enduring styles. It has universal appeal bringing together a mix of sophisticated European charm and understated elegance.
For a traditional French boudoir go for plush fabrics and colours - velvet, damask and toile for your cushions, curtains and bedding in rich tones of chocolate deep red, burgundy, royal blue and gold. Alternatively a French Provincial boudoir is all about romance and elegance in muted neutral tones with splashes of duck egg blue, soft green and ivory. Fabrics are all natural - pure linen and cotton in bedding, cushions, curtains and upholstery. Go for slightly distressed painted oak furniture.
We have put together a wish list of 8 gorgeous French bedrooms to inspire you to create your own French haven.
1. NEUTRAL DISTRESSED WHITE FURNITURE
Modern French Provincial bedroom with white washed painted timber furniture and beautifully neutral tones create a chic calming bedroom.
2. BUTTONED LINEN BEDHEAD AND DUCK EGG BLUE
Phil and Amity were on the first series of The Block Australia back in 2003 and won The Block All Star Series in 2013 - I am a great fan of their style. Natural linen buttoned bedhead, duck egg blue cushions and bedspread and oak bedside tables create a perfect bedroom sanctuary.
3. CHANDELIERS AND UPHOLSTERED BED
Luxurious upholstered linen bedhead with an elegantly curved oak silhouette and a fabulous chandelier set the scene for a beautiful French boudoir.
