There is a certain aura of elagance that always radiates from the French interior design. The French budoirs, both modern and historical have alway that little ‘something’. What is the mystery behind it? Well, in this article for the Home Inspiration Ideas I’ll try to find it out – for the benefit of all of you who dream about having some unique French bedroom design at your home…
The French interior design bases on the opulence of detail and the amount of specified pieces that create the interior – just as much now, as it has done before. First, let me guide you through the key elements of styling a French budoir inspired bedroom, then I’ll show you the photos of my favourite inspirations for those.
As for any French interior design inspired by the tradition – a chandelier is a must. But in order to make your bedroom design more playful, you could experiment a little with the colour. How about this multicolored glass chandelier? I’m sure it would look marvelously if the rest of the interior design remained neutral in color.
Painting your dresser pink certainly requires some courage – but for a neutral background of this interior design it is a bold design statement. Try using some floral patterns and ornate mirrors – they set the romantic mood for the bedroom.
Another furniture piece that a classic French bedroom simply can not go without is a decorative bedframe. This one is upholster in an ecru fabric – this color is also repeated on the wallpaper behind the bed, which on the other hand corresponds with the pale pink bed linen.
Little do we use chaise lounges in our interior designs – and it is such a loss for them! Both your living room and your bedroom design could benefit from having one of them – especially the one that is supposed to be inspired by the romantic French bedrooms (remember all those pictures of budoir scenes…?).
A pastel color scheme allows you to display a whole lot more different ornaments in one interior wthout making it seem tacky. And this interior in my opinion is the perfect example for this – a French style opulence that bases on the subtle variation of color and using the pattern in contrasting sizes.
A gilded bedframe is an obviously luxurious piece of furnishing. But how to style it in a non-nouveau riche way? The French seem to know the answer for that – if you decide on a statement piece like that, make sure that it is a top quality of finish, and then complete its look by pastel shades of peach and grey, perhaps some almost invisible flower patterns.
And here another look created mostly around a lavish bed, completed mostly by a crystal chandelier and a fur rug. Huge applause for such gentle accent of pastel colored cushions with the perfectly chosen pattern.
I simply couldn’t help myself – I had to write something more about the French interior design style, as I’m so excited with the Maison&Objet 2015 starting tomorrow. Hoping that you find the French interior design just as intriguing as i do and that you could find some useful inspiration.
