French Country always reminds me of great food, wine and the joys of living.
When designing a French Country room, use everyday essentials-bottles of wine, your favorite pots, colorful dishes, glassware, fresh foods and spices. Repeat these in the wallpaper, fabrics and window treatments.
A favorite, French Country pattern is toile a print with pastoral, story scenes on cotton or linen.
The furniture can be painted, informal, and rustic or French sophisticated.
Use colors of strong green, brown, orange, and terra cotta, splashed with bright blue or purple.
Accent with candles, fresh flowers, a colorful table clothe, posters, French artifacts, picture books and soaps.
It can be a bit feminine in feel and look but MEN, remember!, within reach, should be great food and wine!
