13th February 2018 Decorate Like a Parisian

With Valentines coming up it got us thinking about subtle ways to add character and charm to our home décor. There’s something about the home styling of Parisians that makes us think; that’s so chic!  Exuding with femininity and elegance even just a subtle touch of French influence can have a huge impact on your décor.

Here at Exclusive Mirrors, we’ve noticed in the past few weeks themes like love and adore are appearing in the fashion world which is filtering through into interiors. We’ve selected 5 of our very best top tips on ways to add a touch of Parisian charm to your home.

Exclusive Chandelier

Something old and something new

When we first think about French décor our thoughts instantly turn to the vintage architectural elements present in so many of these homes. Tie this with eclectic furniture pieces and you have an impressive design that oozes with affluence and style.

What we’ve seen more recently is interior designers channelling this old and new to create a versatile look that still has an air of luxury. Try mixing an antique style mirror with contemporary wall art and home accessories. Piece all of this together against a minimalist, painted wall and you have yourself a seriously striking focal point. 

Fresh Scents

We couldn’t write a Parisian styling piece without giving a nod towards flowers and candles. Together both of these can create a calming ambience that sets the scene perfectly for an elegant, Parisian look. White peonies offer a fresh, chic feel, simply placing these in your living room, kitchen or entrance hallway can instantly revive your space. A scented candle or diffuser are also great to creating a calming atmosphere. A natural scent such as fresh cotton would work perfectly!

Hang a Chandelier

Every space needs a statement piece and of course a chandelier is the epitome of French styling. A chandelier is the perfect way to add elegance along with a touch of sparkle illuminating your room beautifully. Crystal chandeliers can create an authentic feel and more recently are being positioned in contemporary or even Mid Century interiors to add a touch of French sophistication.

Experiment with colour

White walls allow for a light, bright space however incorporating 2018 colour design trends into this theme means we are able to become a little more experimental and introduce colourful accents such as juicy greens, greys and even Pantones colour of the year; ultra violet. These colours allow us to create a stylish, contemporary look that brings Parisian styling perfectly on trend.

Gold Gold Gold

So far gold is one of our favourite interior trends to come out of 2018 and it just so happens to work exceptionally well in Parisian styling. Touches of brass and gold can add opulence and grace; these accents don’t have to cost the world either! Candle lanterns, mirrors, trays and wall clocks are all great ways to incorporate this look. Gold is versatile and timeless making it a perfect investment for your home!
