Being a lifelong Francophile and a huge fan of Paris, I'm always looking for ways to incorporate Parisian flair in your home decor. Heather and I are definitely working on it, and hoping that our October honeymoon in Paris will give us even more of that … je ne sais quoi! It's that easy, effortless elegance you find in both Parisian decor and fashion. Finding ways to incorporate Parisian flair in your home decor doesn't mean you have to try hard, just the opposite. A lot of it's in the details, so if you're looking to make your home look more like a fabulous French pied-à-terre, here we go!
1. Keep the Colors Rich
One of the best ways to incorporate Parisian flair in your home decor is to use rich, jeweled colors. Crimson reds, dark purple, royal or cobalt blue, emerald – they're all up for grabs. You can even go with deep, rich pinks if you like, although that's more modern Paris than anything. The point is, don't fear color, even if you think it's outlandish or too rich; you'll be able to tone it down with some of your other design choices.
