I have a passion for all things French-inspired. How about you? Do you enjoy this classic decorating style?
French-inspired can be ornate furniture, gold leaf wall fixtures, distressed finishing, or prints of famous French landmarks like the Eiffel tower.
I was at Home Goods and would have loved to purchase French-inspired accents for every room in my house. Even Target has jumped on the trend wagon and you can find inexpensive decor pieces that make you feel like you are dining in a cute cafe in Paris.
My dining room table was the first piece that started my adventure in decorating with a French-inspired theme. You can click here for an inspiring way to take a $10.00 table and transform it into a chic Parisian piece.
With our renovation, I wanted to keep within the Victorian style of our house but with a modern twist and if you were a fan of Downtown Abbey, you know that even the strictest of Englishman loved French Decor.
With this in mind, I have chosen light walls throughout my house and have added the French decor accents with painted furniture and painted decor pieces.
Opposite of the modern open concept, our house is divided by distinct division of rooms with archways and pocket doors and I wanted to make sure that every room flowed but had a specific color palette.
I loved the idea of my music room transporting me back to the gilded ages where manor houses had ornate crown molding and frescoes that covered the ceilings and gold leaf painted fireplaces promoted romantic evenings.
I’ve really become a student of paint on this adventure and I discovered Modern Masters Paint company. They sent me a trial sample of paint and I fell in love with this brand.
Modern Masters Paint is unique because the paint has a metallic component that is perfect for the French-inspired look. So far, I have used Modern Masters gold on wood, brick, canvas, and even used it to stencil over chalk paint and it has worked fabulously in all situations.
It is the perfect paint to get the French-inspired look. I was thrilled to discover this product. Just recently, it became available at Home Depot. Click here to purchase this amazing paint.
I was given a sample of Modern Masters black metallic paint that I am currently using to revive an old bedroom dresser which I will feature in a future post.
