French country décor has been a popular design style for centuries, but it’s gained more popularity thanks to the show Fixer Upper. Joanna Gaines and many other designers use elements of French country style in their remodels, and you can too.
Today’s contemporary designs involve cleaner lines and less ornate and colorful décor items, but the details tend to be a little more elaborate. For a more sophisticated spin on modern French country décor, designers use a combination of neutral colors, allowing the elaborate details to stand out.
If you love French country design and want to incorporate it into your home, here are some of the best ways to do so.
1. Rustic Pastel Rooms
Although neutral rooms are very popular, sometimes a splash of color is nice. Choose pastel colors for your 19th century arm chairs and floral-patterned curtains. Pastel is easy to mix and match, so you can include a variety of colors in a single room with a striking result.
