TAKE ME TO PARIS


Ahhh Paris…. There’ no place like it.  The fashion is high-end, the architecture is grand and there’s an air of style and sophistication wherever you go.  It’s a fashion girls dream!  But while we’d happily spend our days nibbling croissants and sipping café in the sun, reality calls.  Plus, we’d miss you guys waaay too much.

The solution?  Bring Paris to Australia!  With French provincial style furniture and décor!  Inspired by Paris in the 1920’s with its lavish parties and music-hall shows, this trend is all about romance and glamour.  We’re talking subtle, mooted cool tones, luxurious upholstery, curved furniture and intricately carved details.

The thing we love most about this trend?  While it’s super luxe, it’s also easily achievable and even quite practical.  Here’s how to get the look in your own home…

Leave straight lines and hard, rigid frames out of the living room.  Instead, go for curved couches, wavy lamps and warped tables.  Inspired by the Surrealist art movement of the 1920’s, flowing furniture is fundamental in the French home.   

A statement mirror is an absolute must in a French home.  It could be in your bedroom, in the hallway, in the living rom or library – it doesn’t matter, as long as it’s big!  Opt for a metallic frame with intricate carved details for a truly French look

Delicate florals and vintage glass jars are the perfect way to bring the romance of Paris into your bathroom.  We like to use mason jars and stick labels with classic French quotes on the front.

If you’re going to invest in one French-style piece of furniture, it has to be a royal armchair.  This will instantly bring the Paris vibe into your home.  We love the look of classic, French chairs in modern colours like blush and light blue.
