Raise your hand if you'd like a Parisian apartment of your own. Doesn't have to be huge, of course — just a little pied-à-terre where you can fall asleep watching the Eiffel Tower do its midnight thing, then wake up to the smell of croissants wafting from the boulangerie below your apartment. Really, is that too much to ask?

OK, so maybe a second home in Paris isn't in the cards for most of us, but that doesn't mean we can't borrow some interiors inspiration from our friends in France. We've been doing it for a while, if you think about it. That antiqued brass scroll mirror you've seen everywhere for the past few years? Très Français. Vintage, mismatched plates at a dinner party? Also very French.

To help you channel French style no matter where you live, we've assembled some simple tips based on the simplicity and chicness of French interiors. Think: less "Tournée du Chat Noir" poster, more "tiny art gallery tucked away in the Marais" vibes. Scroll through for inspiration, advice, and — of course — le shopping.
