No one does an effortless style as the French do. If you are in that point where you want to spruce up your home, you might want to go Parisian-Modern. This sense of style is more like Minimalist-meets-Modern-Bohemian which is timeless, charming, and sophisticated. Pulling this off successfully has a lot to do with selective taste in the choices of color, material, and style. So, do as the French does with these tips to have that chic Parisian vibe in the comforts of your own home.
Make your key colors minimal yet classy.
Authentically-styled Parisian spaces would have a base palette with the colors white, black, brown, and a number of metallic shades (bronze, copper, gold, or aluminum). Emerald green, Prussian Blue, maroon are also good to have as accents in any space you feel need that Parisian magic.
Parisian Aesthetic is achieved with specific materiality.
Being dramatic and simple at the same time is the way to go. Marble, porcelain, cast iron, or aluminum are must-haves. These types of material add a distinct personality of sass and elegance. In your bathroom, for example, mixing up marble with glass shower screens is great for interior composition. Add in some reflective surfaces like a mirror or tapware, then everything you see is perfectly Parisian-Modern.
TAccessories and styling items should be discreet yet sensational.
Establishing the “wow factor” that is strictly Parisian always capitalizes on simple things but then goes loud with accessories like lighting, storage, mirrors, or decor. Remember to acquire practical accessories. Because at the end of the day, style should also be about functionality.
Finally, liven up the space with something fresh.
When we say fresh, we mean indoor plants. These beautiful things bring natural color into your home that is like a breath of fresh air. Plus, your home is not Modern Parisian if you do not have a plant of any sort. To keep with the theme, prefer bulb glass vases or Prussian blue pots.
