Hi! I'm Jessica, a writer from Arcadian Lighting, a wonderful website and blog where you can find beautiful light fixtures and daily interior design inspirations. I'm delighted to be guest posting for Tam today because I'm going to be sharing some lovely interiors with a little vintage French style.
There's nothing more romantic and chic than French decor, and throw in some vintage touches and you've got a very feminine, dreamy atmosphere without having to book a trip to Paris. I hope you enjoy these rooms as much as I do!
A vintage French grain sack turned body pillow gives the room a bit of texture and nostalgia. I love the vanilla colored wall and painted headboard.
This spacious bedroom has a lovely mix of vintage French details that are just petite enough to not overpower the room. The dramatic curtains and female sculpture are tres classique francaise, and there's something bohemian about the unfinished feel of the room.
I love the rustic, industrial furnishings in this room, especially when combined with the polished brass letters that mean “Us” en francaise. The rusty wall lamps must provide some very moody lighting in the evening.
This vignette is at once modern and vintage with its crisp all-white wall and floorboards and the well-worn leather armchair. A graphic print of any French saying, particularly when translating to “I love you very much!” is always a beautiful accent in any room.
This gallery wall of vintage French street posters add so much color and character to the room. The Chesterfield sofa is eye-catching as well.
The very simple table with a vintage tablecloth and bistro folding chairs in this apartment recreate the classic French cafe feel. Mismatched coffee cups and saucers, and of course a bottle of wine, complete the scene. A single pendant light just above the table would really set the mood, as well.
A pair of vintage French doors get a whole new life in those home when set on a track. It's a dramatic and unique way to divide rooms.
This lovely bedroom is particularly feminine and French. I love the pale blue antique dresser and gold accents, not to mention the chic dress form mannequin. Images 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8
