Modern French country decor – It is time to abandon these four white walls and embrace a style that has a soul. French country decor, with its penchant for the ancient and well-loved, fit the bill. The design trend comes with a scent of Provencal lavender field to the home, but is less worm and something more regal that its American country counterpart.

A modern French country decor features faded antique shades as well as dashes of bold shades. Creamy and distressed white are the ideal accents for blue-blue, Mediterranean blue and green, saffron yellow, woodsy brown, pale gray, deep red and persimmon orange. Try an accent wall in a golden shade, and add a trim jaunty blue fleur-de-lis. Create an eye-catching faux finish by painting a wall deep blue or green and allow it to dry before adding a layer of dry clean. Use fine grain sandpaper to rub clean and let pieces of blue or green to show through.
Think rustic; farmhouse, cottage and shabby chic style and you have the modern French country decor look. Bistro-style metal patio furniture looks perfect in a breakfast area, while the bedroom may have a wrought iron bed frame painted antique white or pale lavender. In bathrooms and kitchens, use natural materials such as wood, stone, marble, clay and paper. Add the regal hand to some French formalism, such as curved chairs, painted trim cupboards, hand painted tiles and metal roll work with trash baskets and shelf support.
