Say “Oui!” To French Country Ya’ll

French country Flair

 French country design often incorporates ruffles, distressed woodwork, mixed patterns, and both vibrant and subdued hues. 

While many people are under the impression this type of design is too gaudy to fit with today’s tastes, I think that could not be further from the truth. French country design showcases elegant simplicity at its finest — and, if given a chance, could become the next twist on rustic design.

The easiest way to achieve the goal of French Country is through your color palette. While the dominant shade in each room should still be fairly neutral, French country’s dependence on subdued hues means you can stretch that definition a little bit further than usual. Focus on colors that are inherently warm and subtle — such as tans, creams, and soft yellows — to fill this role.

Choose Subtle and Warm Colors – 

Where your accent colors are concerned, you’ll want to choose shades that tune into French country’s traditional roots. Choose colors such as rust and antique white, which will infuse the room with a subconsciously historical feel.

Look For Furniture with Flowing Lines – 

With this in mind, you want to follow many of the same rules as you would when putting together a traditional rustic look. Concentrate on incorporating plenty of natural materials. The shape of these pieces. However, is where this aesthetic sets itself apart. French country furniture boasts a variety of sophisticated, flowing lines to add plenty of visual interest in addition to function and purpose.

Embrace Your Weathered Textures – 

One way to do that is through your finishes. Rather than having design elements that look as though they’ve come straight from the store, you want the impression that your rooms have seen a bit of history! When it comes to selecting flooring, furniture or even architectural elements like decorative wooden beams, choose finishes that are a bit distressed, or imperfect and rough around the edges.

How To Use Elephant Skin Color To Stand Out

TREND COLOR SPOTLIGHT: ELEPHANT SKIN

by Quinn Larson

A neutral not to be ignored, Elephant Skin PPU18-16 takes center stage this fall as our November Trend Color Spotlight.

Elephant Skin is a versatile color that is easily coordinated across whites, pastels and saturated tones alike.  Use this warm, midtoned taupe as a feature color on all your walls or as a simple accent.

A little known secret, the richness of color in this neutral comes through beautifully when used in a higher sheen. Try painting it as an interior door or trim color in satin or semigloss for an understated and elegant look.

How To Add Luxury To The Basis . . .

I get some great ideas from Denise – recreate it – Make it my own!

I’m not here to reinvent the wheel . . . Just repurpose it! ~ Me

I like how Denise takes basic products from say the Dollar store or Walmart and turns them into Luxury! We all can do this, I challenge you to find a simple product from the Dollar General, or Walmart, or Target, or wherever you shop – take a picture of it – then, turn it into a creation of Luxurious Charm and Beauty – post the finalize product. Then, pay it forward – give it to someone that would greatly appreciate some real Beauty in their life this Holiday Season.

Enjoy . . . Her DIYs are very simple – can be done in an afternoon.

The best compliment a homeowner can hear is how warm a visitor feels upon entering their home!  Are you missing that?
