Toi belle décoratrice, toi! Your favorite style is elegant, but still warm and comfortable. You love curvy wood pieces with beautiful traditional fabrics.
French country style decor has a casual elegance to it. It’s warm and comfortable. The furnishings should have graceful and simple lines, with some curves too. French Country style decor features plenty of painted furniture. Buying older furniture and refinishing it with a distressed look would be a perfect fit for this style. Wrought iron or rusted metal accents are sometimes incorporated into this style as well. Fabrics in this style often rely on toile, a very traditional fabric. But the good news is, you can partner toile with stripes, plaids, or solids for plenty of visual interest. French country color schemes can come from all sides of the color wheel. Often this style is paired with the farmhouse look.
