5 Tips to Make Your Home Feel More Like a French Chateau

If you’re looking to create that beautiful French countryside looks in your home, but don’t want to take the big step of moving across the ocean, here are five quick tips to help you along the way.

1) Use Pottery as Accents

Consider using pottery as an accent. Pottery can have any shape or size, so it’s easy to find a piece that will fit in with your other furnishings. You can also paint them yourself and do some DIY glazing. These pieces add color and texture and are very inexpensive ways of adding warmth and personality to the room.

2) Display Artwork in Unconventional Places

French homes are known for their eclectic, bohemian style that embraces both vintage and modern. Inside the home, you’ll often find a mix of furnishings from different periods of time. For example, some rooms may have old-fashioned wooden furniture next to contemporary pieces made out of metal or glass. The most common way that the French incorporate art is by decorating walls with paintings or posters. If you want to create your own artistic masterpiece, here are some tips:
1) Pick out an image that reflects your personality 2) Cut it out and create your own frame 3) Hang it up on the wall 4) Invite friends over for a viewing party!

3) Change Unexpected Things into Their Opposite

1. Replace your old and worn-out furniture with new ones in white or light colors. 2. Hang your favorite paintings, but only if they are not too colorful or extravagant. 3. Declutter as much as possible and keep the floors clear of clutter by storing things in tidy drawers or cabinets. 4. Use natural light as often as possible by opening curtains on sunny days and avoid using electric lights unless it is absolutely necessary to do so such as at night when there is no natural light available, then use lamps that are set far apart and which cast an even and diffused light rather than lamps that create sharp shadows on the walls or furnishings, which may make the room appear cluttered in addition to making it look smaller than it actually is. 5.

4) Utilize Mirrors Everywhere

1. Utilize mirrors everywhere, from the bathroom to the bedroom, and in any entryway. A mirror reflects light and creates the illusion of space. Mirrors also make rooms feel larger and more open.
2. Use neutral tones like white, gray or beige for flooring and walls. Think about what color you would typically see if you were in a fancy chateau in France. It’s likely either white or beige with subtle patterns on it like stripes or polka dots. Darker colors can make your home feel smaller while lighter colors can make it seem bigger and more spacious.
3. Don’t forget about lighting!

5) Use Antiques in Colorful Ways

If you want your home to feel more like a French chateau, incorporate antiques into your living space. Antiques add character and charm, which can help make your home feel more like it’s straight out of the 18th century. They also have the potential to bring in some serious cash if you’re interested in reselling them on websites like eBay or Etsy. If you’re buying an antique for resale purposes, be sure to take photographs of them before bringing them home so that they’ll already be prepped for when the time comes.
