Decorating in Paris Apartment Style

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Paris Apartment style decorating projects an image of romance and European beauty. It brings to mind high ceilings, architectural features, little wrought iron balconies, French cabaret a la Moulin Rouge, and rooms filled with decorating from many time periods. The decor has a time-worn, not shabby, vintage look, yet maintains elegance. The fabrics are rich and luxurious, as is the upholstery, with decadent trim and accents.

Look for:

  • Gold highlights used to bring life to other colors
  • International furnishings from many time periods
  • Vintage French posters, signs and accessories
  • beaded and fringed accents
  • Black accent colors on wood furniture, mirrors or picture frames and as accents in fabrics and accessories
  • Rich jewel colors accented with black, gold and white, and “Paris pink”
  • Gilt accents highlighting architectural and furniture details
  • rich fabrics and upholstery, including silks and velvets, often in bold stripes, with tassels, fringing and cording
  • luxurious lined silk draperies with fringes and tasselled cords
  • Hardwood flooring covered with old fashioned rugs and carpets with a worn look
  • round accent tables with layered skirts and tablecloths
  • Large clocks, roosters, toile, Eiffel Tower accents, Monet impressionist prints, large black or gold mirrors, candelabras and ornate candle holders, hat boxes
  • Mismatched furniture and accessories
  • Crystal chandeliers and wall sconces trimmed in gilt, gold or black, fringed lampshades
  • Bistro table and chairs
  • Luxurious, elegant vanity tables covered with antique mirrors and brushes and combs, gilt-edged frames, and crystal perfume bottles
  • Architectural elements such as corbels added to corners above entryways, columns added in open spaces or in the kitchen on an island
