If you read our blog often (or saw pictures from my wedding), you probably already know that vintage, romantic décor is my absolute favorite style. What I love most about it is the warm, cozy feel that it brings to a room. Often paired with calm, neutral tones, this style can have such a soothing effect.
I also love the idea that the style reflects the rich history of its era, and breathes such life into the design. Sometimes, this style can be a bit difficult to achieve on your own… But, here are a few of my favorite looks to hopefully inspire you and give you some new ideas for how to get this look in your home, too!
I love a sturdy, rustic farmhouse table paired with neutral linen. This is classic French country design, and a timeless look for your dining area. I like to pair mine with a big bouquet of hydrangeas or peonies- simple, elegant, and soft.
With lots of neutral tones, it’s nice to add in pops of glitz like gold and silver to add a bit of sparkle to your décor!
Bella Cottage is one of my personal favorites- their pieces are simply beautiful. I love the tufting here- it would be so comfy to lean up against if you like to read in bed, like I do!
Often in French country décor, you will find ornate, glamorous lighting paired with rustic or distressed pieces. This adds so much depth to all of those neutral tones, and really steps your design up to the next level!
For a more casual room, you can channel that country look from nature, and use it in wallpaper and fresh flowers. This Tempaper wallpaper is not only perfect for the style, it’s also temporary so that you can easily add or remove it any time you want to switch it up!
Stools like these from Frontgate have it all- I wish I had a counter like this in my house so that I could get some of my own!
I love the look of this wire basket chandelier! This could be so fun for a big table outdoors, maybe even with some vines or ivy wrapped around.
It is so common to find distressed or “shabby chic” furniture to capture this look. Annie Sloan chalk paint is easy enough to use yourself, and the best quality out there to get the style of paint you see here!
What’s YOUR favorite style? Would you try this French country décor in your home?
