SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW. | The charm of many French apartments lies within its vintage architectural elements, complemented with eclectic furnishings. Try mixing antique finds with newer, edgier pieces like a contemporary piece of art or printed pillows.
GO FOR GOLD. | Touches of gold and antiqued brass add a bit of opulence. These accents don’t have to be pricey, either. A side table, mirror, terrarium or small objets are all easy ways to incorporate gold to a space.
EMBRACE WHITE WALLS. | Ever notice how most Parisian apartments have white walls? It’s no mistake. White walls allow for a room to feel bright and offer contrast to its furnishings. For accent walls or secondary rooms, try a rich grey, dusty pink, or near black.
HANG A CHANDELIER. | Why not? A chandelier lends elegance and a little sparkle, along with properly lighting a room. The idea is to make your ceiling fixture look original. Browse crystal chandeliers like this favorite and this one on sale.
OPT FOR BOLD ARTWORK. | Just like ‘something old, something new,’ bold artwork balances vintage elements, like crown molding and traditional millwork. I love this collection for a variety of framed prints and artwork.
HANG WINDOW SHEERS. | Window treatments give instant drama to a space. If you don’t want to go the custom drapes route, window sheers are an excellent (and less-expensive) option.
