A French Country Bedroom in Paris

Get the Look: The Spirit of the Country in Paris

Reading the blog of one of my favorite French shelter magazines, Côté Maison, I came across this bedroom of a reader who lives in the 14th arrondissement of Paris. It's so sophisticated, feminine, and reserved; if I could, I'd lift every last detail and accessory for my own home. I think what I love most about the room is that though it's in the heart of the City of Lights, it feels like a guest room in a quaint French country estate.

In fact, that's the look the reader was going for. Assuming my French skills are up to par, she writes that she "wanted to breathe the charm of old bourgeois country houses" into her room. To do so, she used a delicate floral wallpaper from British wallpaper company Sanderson, a comfortable velvet upholstered armchair, an old family trunk, antique paintings, and a vintage bird cage. She added a small, feminine chandelier to highlight the mantel and a sheepskin rug to provide an element of softness. I also adore the pale celadon color she used for the door and trim.
