Here are some tips and examples for creating Parisian-inspired living room.
White Walls And Parquet Floor
White walls with molding are a must for a Parisian living room or any other room, add a high white ceiling with molding and voila, you base is ready! Molding on the walls and floors will let you dress them up neutrally and with chic, and such a combo will make the room feel airy and light-filled even on a gloomy day. Add hardwood parquet flooring, which will make the space catchier and cozier – wood always brings a comforting feel anywhere.
Incorporate a fireplace if possible, even if it’s a non-working one – it’s a critical element for a truly Parisian living room. A distinctive surround and stylish mantel elevate a plain fireplace to a new level. Topping it off large mirror — another common element in Parisian decor — completes the look. Molding, trim and a raised embellishment add to the overall ambiance.
A sophisticated statement chandelier or even chandeliers if you have a large space are a must for a Parisian chic living room, it will not only add a refined feel but will also balance the room. If the furniture is contemporary and the room relies on other elements for an antique touch, a gorgeous vintage-inspired chandelier can flavor the room in the correct way. If the living room is dominated by older pieces of furniture, a more modern chandelier can make the space feel like the right French mix. If you are hesitating, choose crystal, with which you can never go wrong.
