French country spring decorating ideas are a great way of spending these warm days of the season. Are you trying enjoy the spring and summer days in and around your home?
One tip is to always remove as much as possible from the room in terms of rugs, small accessories and sometimes furniture for swapping out. Parisians master that classic and contemporary mix and that constant balance between design and antique. Simplicity is valued; art is often large and singular, or simply not there at all, and furniture is given room to breathe.
In a typical Parisian apartment, you will often find the white color. The color white allows for bringing out the details of the historic ornaments and to get as much natural light as possible. To add contrast and depth to a room, deep colors such as blue-grey, beige-grey, grey, and black are sometimes used on furniture or on a door.
French people love to add texture and colour to their apartments with a large, chic antique-looking Persian rug, together with a French bistro and rattan chairs. As a sign that warmer days have arrived, its always nice to have a bunch of flowers in the space. No prim and proper roses here though. Think wildflowers of all different varieties or go for of-the-moment dried plants (almost dead plants) for a very French-spring vibe.
