"The Parisian style is likely so popular because it can transport people in their own homes—it's calming, elegant, and worldly all at once."

Joshua Smith (Interior Designer) for MyDomaine.com

What is Parisian Design?

Parisian style interior design exudes simple elegance. The looks are at once contemporary and classic. They rely on a delicate mix between modern and antique. Classic features of Parisian interiors include wall paneling, white walls, old herringbone parquet floors and marble mantles. The style is unique and timeless.

Wherever you live, you can emulate Parisian style home decor with carefully selected soft furnishings, bedding, and decorative objects. Read on for our best tips.

Five Ways to Recreate the Look of Parisian Decor in Your Home

1. The Base for Parisian Bedroom Design: Crisp Neutral Colors for Walls and Bedding

When it comes to Parisian bedroom decor, a subtle and subdued start is your new best friend. For a Parisian-inspired neutral room, Curated Interior recommends building off a base of white. Classic white walls and simple white bedding from high quality bedding brands like Sferra and Matouk are the perfect place to begin. 

Neutral spaces don't have to be clinical. Keep the look warm with subtle white patterns and touches of gray, taupe, and ivory to add visual interest.

2. Play up Simple Elegance with Marble and Brass Accessories

Another key to Parisian chic interior design is modern accessories. Apartment Therapy recommends incorporating brass accents to add a rich feel to any space. Pieces like World's Away Furniture, Mirror Home Wall Mirrors, and Gold Light Fixtures, will keep your living room or dining room warm and elegant. 

Marble accessories like a marble dining table or marble side table helps create a feeling of antiquity and culture in your space.

3. Incorporate Fresh French Floral Details for Perfect Parisian Decor

Elevate the neutral base of your Parisian style bedrooms with a delightfully french detail: fresh florals. 

Jewel toned floral accents in the form of Yves Delorme bedding sets, Yves Delorme sheets and Designers Guild Pillows make the Parisian style bedroom appear fresh and youthful. Use colorful kitchen towels and table furnishings like simple and chic Le Jacquard Francais tea towels and Le Jacquard Francais tablecloths to accentuate playfulness in your kitchen and dining room. Chic and floral Yves Delorme towels add everlasting fresh flowers to your Parisian bathroom.

4. Layer Up with Textured Textiles to Create a Warm Look

Choosing neutrality does not have to mean choosing boring! Parisian homes keep visual interest in neutral design by incorporating a variety of textures. Rely on materials like faux fur throws, quilted duvet covers, and ribboned throw pillows to keep the Parisian look fun and unique.

5. Use a Reed Diffuser, Room Spray, or Luxury Candle to Create a Signature Scent

Scent is increasingly considered to be an essential element of interior design. To achieve that final je ne sais quoi in your Parisian interior, choose a romantic signature scent. Classic French scents can be floral, fresh, spicy and sweet. 

Layering long term scents with a diffuser with shorter lasting fragrances using a candle or room spray will help create a complex scentscape that makes home special. Candles, diffusers and room sprays from brands like Antica Farmicista, Nest, and Agraria are absolutely essential for curating Parisian interior design.
