For centuries, the French country style has been popular all over the world.  It may date back to the beginning of decorative practices, yet this design style can be easy to include in your decór.  This style is cosy, familiar and creates thoughts of warmth and security.

Several elements influence the French Country decorating style. Although rustic, the style is also elegant, adding a warm feeling to your home. The French Country style encompasses a  broad range of colours, including bright reds, soft yellows and blues, blue and greens, as well as rust.

These colours are used to decorate the fabrics accentuating the dramatic effect of the bright colour scheme. To define accessory pieces, use glossy black or a softer colour for your walls. Adorn your doorways and windows with natural vines.

French Country Décor typically uses natural materials.  Floors made of clay, brick or natural stone.  Light toned walls contrast with dark beams of wood.

Traditional countryside themes include sunflowers, olives and roosters, with a touch of grapes and lavender. 

The beautiful French country style is perfect for anyone who prefers a comfortable, cosy and rustic look. Following the tips above will make it easy to achieve a décor of this type. Remember that this style emphasises on the use of colour and texture as a way to contrast the individual elements in the room and achieve balance and harmony.

The French country style inspires thoughts of the outdoors, prairies, wildflowers, bright, and warm sunlight. If you use these design components in combination with your personal touch, you will find this style to be familiar and comforting.
