What makes French ornament so particular, in keeping with Stephaine is, “That rustic model that we’ve at all times had, with outdated stone, flooring tiles, and many others.”
I agree together with her as a result of to me, the French Nation model may be very distinctive as a result of it’s rustic but by some means enduring, it by no means feels drained, boring, or out of context. Even in a contemporary world the place minimalism and NEW is such an enormous decor pattern, there’s loads of area for this restful, “perpetually on vacation”, French Nation Model. In truth, lots of people like Stephanie are mixing components of minimalism with French Nation, making a powerful, clear edit, and displaying French Nation is a more recent, less complicated vogue that I actually love.
What are a few of the hallmarks of this look? In my expertise with interiors for the previous 16 years, it’s undoubtedly a lot of pure supplies, issues with a patina, displaying imperfections (like espresso rings on picket tables), muted tones, mushy whites and neutrals which can be heat, metallic overhead pendants, pegboards on the wall, moldings on cabinetry, picket paneling painted white, uncovered picket beams, linen sofas and curtains (and bedding), wrought iron patio units, Mercury glass and mirrors, a lot of clear glass (jars) and something reflective, rustic stools and benches, sisal rugs and picket flooring, woven baskets, and ornamental components like stacked books in impartial tones, rocks, and shells.
