France… the country of romance, luxury, and elegance. This made us select the most stunning French country living room ideas from Pinterest.
One of the main features of the French country style is the expensive look – from furniture to the smallest elements of decoration. A large number of fabrics, textures, and elements: the rich velvet and brocade drapery, combined with the lightness and transparency of chiffon or organza.
An integral part of the interior design is mirrors and paintings in carved frames with gilding or in silver-bronze color. In addition, porcelain and crystal are most often used as accessories.
The French country-style interior welcomes different types of lighting fixtures such as candlesticks placed on the wall or scattered around the room, as well as floor-mounted lamps that have original fabrics and crystal pendants.
However, thanks to this, it is important that the room is spacious enough, with a high ceiling and a large window, providing enough natural daylight.
When it comes to choosing furniture for your French country living room you should include wooden and metal chairs with gracefully curved legs and back. Tables with thin curved legs, armchairs, and sofas with exquisite shapes and metal decorative elements, and upholstery with ornaments of the most expensive-looking fabrics.
It is not necessary to have all elements of the furniture in one color. The main idea is to look good together. The combination of objects of different styles and eras is also welcome, this makes the French country style look stunning and creates a special atmosphere in the room.
You can use all kinds of glass and porcelain figurines, ornaments and metal coffins, old suitcases, and handmade lace napkins placed on tables and drawers.
Small vases with small bouquets could bring some more freshness to your living room shelves. In the French country style, open shelves with porcelain plates will be suitable.
Decorative pillows with hand embroidery of ribbons or beads are an excellent way to play with the main hues of your perfect French living room.
Impressive and thick rugs will bring additional warmth to your living room. For a better contrast between modern and vintage, you can use loose lay vinyl flooring to opt the rustic wooden floor effect.
French Country Living Room Ideas
The French country living room is a place with luxury mixed with chic and graceful elements. The main pieces of furniture in this room should be cozy chairs, a small sofa, and an oval or round table.
If it is possible, a fireplace on which are placed candles with luxury scent, photos, and other small decorative elements.
Usually, a piece of art or mirrors in an appropriate frame is hung above the fireplace if there is any, or above the sofa.
A small glass cabinet with porcelain plates can also be placed near the sofa.
Your French country living room must have enough windows that could be wide open so the light can enter the room. At the same time, they must be decorated with beautiful heavy curtains made of expensive material with beautiful cornices, pelmets, and tassels.
The main decoration in the living room can be a huge crystal chandelier, whose reflections fill the whole room with a rainbow. If you do some shopping for some antiques online, you can find some great deals on chandeliers and similar statement pieces!
