My love of all things Paris has my “Eurocana Décor” Pinterest board filled with all kinds of hopes and dreams for my space. Here are four design elements that I’ve noticed as “must-haves” to capture that French chic look in your apartment or home.
1. White Walls
Many of the interiors I’ve seen have white walls – perfect for making a small Paris apartment feel more spacious and for keeping things bright and airy in the city.
2. Crown Molding and Paneling
Add texture and detail to your white walls with crown molding and paneling. The secret of French decorating is to know where to add detail and to know when less is more. Notice how most of these spaces have detailed crown molding and/or paneling while furniture and wall art are kept to a minimum.
3. Chevron Wood Floors
The chevron pattern adds another unique aspect to French spaces as well as an element of class.
Europeans have used timeless materials such as marble on floors and countertops for centuries. It still looks beautiful today, even in spaces with a modern twist.
