Creating a French Style Living Room

The French country style has its roots in the Provencal region of France – the south-eastern edge of the country that is most famous for its lush, rolling countryside and its picturesque views.

Good choices for this style are earthenware planter pots, painted ceramic vases, carved wooden bowls, candlesticks, and any accessories that are made from ironstone. Wall sconces are also a great idea for adding a timeless appeal, and brass accessories stay true to the theme as...
