French Country Design
French Country is one of the most popular styles of décor
today. Why is it so popular? The French Country style lends itself
to feelings of comfort, ease and casual elegance. It’s not
too prim and proper, but not so eclectic that it feels like a jumble
of confused styles. It’s simple, yet elegant.
When you think of the French countryside you think of vibrant hues
of color from sunny yellows to crisp blues and creamy whites.
Textures are also important in the French Country
Style. Chipped paint, rusted iron, heavy cotton and rustic pine
add a sense of age and weight. To offset the heaviness, airy white
curtains, lace and vases of lush flowers should fill your room.
While the French Country style can be rustic, it’s what I
like to call “rustic-light”. It incorporates rustic
pieces with comfortable objects such as throws, pillows and rugs.
It’s not stripped, rough pine, it’s chipping paint,
worn and loved. It’s old-world charm at it’s best.
