There are many different interpretations of the French Country style. But, don’t let this confuse or frustrate you. Remember, this style is all about livability paired with individual character.
Some people like to decorate with an array of different white hues. It is calming and serene. Slipcovers are a staple with this style, along with salvaged architecture, white ironstone, and rustic furniture.
Other people like myself, love to embrace bold colors instead. Decorating with curved furniture, gilded painted mirrors, painted furniture, and splashes of red.
Let’s take a look at both of these different styles.
Where to Start?
So, where do you even begin to create a French Country living room? When I meet with a new client, the first thing I have them do is tell me what they like and don’t like about their room. What particular pieces they want to stay, and what they want to go.
So, this is your first step. Make a list of what you want to keep. Then make a list of what you don’t like. Do you want to change the draperies, or replace some furniture pieces and accessories?
