One of the characteristics of the french style decor is that its walls are very elegant, either because of the richness of the wallpaper or because of the color combinations that are used. In general, light shades or wallpapers are used, and especially Jouy fabrics, both for the walls and for upholstering furniture. If we do not find wallpaper with Jouy motifs, we can use gridded fabrics or solid colors, especially neutral or light tones, either combined in vertical strips or a single color for the wall.
The boiseries can not miss, whether plaster or carved wood, we can paint them in gold or in some color. In french style decor you can not miss the walls with boiseries, mirrors and paintings. Nor can the armchairs and sofas be missing. Especially if they are upholstered with the colors of the walls, curtains or some rich but not too delicate fabric. It is not necessary that they are too soft, but comfortable.

The golden color is something that characterizes the french style decor, especially in the boiseries, the picture frames, mirrors, figures, among others. But it is better that they are old or patina with an antique finish, whether in metallic or marble type finish. If we want our room to look like a French country house, then we will use motifs or colors that recall the French lavender fields, or the coast and the sea.
