Romantic French Style Bedrooms

The French have earned their famous and
romantic style with their sense of culture
and aesthetics. I wanted to focus on some
French styled rooms for this post. All of the
rooms are not entirely French in style but
rather have elements in the room that give
the rooms a distinct French flair.

Guilt mirrors - very French and very glam.

The above caned, French armchair is
among my favorite styles of chairs.
It is very versatile and can be used
almost anywhere.

This children's room is so airy and light. It's
got sort of a rustic French flair to it. The white
makes it very romantic and ethereal.

Another children's bedroom. I just love the
simplicity of the room and the colors.

What French room is without frills?

This bedroom is just so dreamy.
It's got style and character to boot.

If you like the French country style,
this is a good example.

Sage green can be a very soothing color.

I love the exposed beams with the
quintessential French bed and furniture.

The open beams and the flooring (long wide
planks of wood) are really beautiful in this room.

How about this eclectic room with a
rococo headboard and vintage items.

French Home

If you like French style or decor,
here are some of my recommendations
to start with. There are many more
beautiful French design books but these
three are great starters.

The New French Decor: Living with Timeless Objects
by Michele Lalande (Author), Gilles Trillard (Photographer)



The French-Inspired Home
with French General


French General is a store in Los Angeles
that is opened by a bonafide Francophile.
This book has a lot of fun and small inspirations
around the home including some small DIY
projects to put a French flair in your home.

I'm French, living in France, and I've rarelly seen such kinds of rooms in real houses ;-)
Nevertheless, this is an interesting style : "American view of French style"

I *love* the vintage distressed child's bed, but the lawyer in my brain immediately yelled "But the kids will get their head stuck!". See why it doesn't pay to go to law school?

*very* cool post. I am always wondering how to do French the right way without overdoing it, and these touches are awesome.

The fifth pic is my favorite. I love the tonal Damask wallpaper and the bedskirt and the headboard. I am having a headboard made like this one but real tall.

Love the colors in the child's bedroom.
