Guest Post: 8 French Interiors We Love

Hi, I'm Susi, a writer for Arcadian Lighting, a fantastic online resource for lighting fixtures. I'm so happy to be visiting French Mademoiselle today to share French interiors to inspire your next design project. Each of these rooms has gorgeous design elements that are quintessentially French and oh so chic. Here are 8 French interiors we love, and hope you will love too! Enjoy!

French Interior Furnishings

French interiors look effortlessly chic. With a mix of antique and newer furnishings, this living room is a lovely mix of color, pattern and curving lines.

French Interior Detail

This antique French room is loaded with inspiration for a French interior. We love the pink and gold color combination. The ribbon detail on the chair and wall is gorgeous.

French Interior Lamps

Smoky purple, blue and gold create a beautiful palette in this French inspired living room. Aged plaster on the walls gives the room an antiqued feeling. The twin lamps frame the table setting perfectly!

French Interior Dining Chair

This chic French country dining room is so charming with its mix of rustic and antique pieces. Love the pastoral themed artwork on the wall and burlap upholstery on the dining chairs.

French Interior Wall Sconce

Pale gray, also known as French grey, paired with cream is a lovely color combination for a living room or bedroom. Love the daybed, screen and pretty little wall sconce in this room; they create a lovely place to read a book or nap.

French Interior Ceiling Lights

French blue is a gorgeous color for interiors. It is a blue that has a lot of grey in it. French blue is beautiful paired with either silver or golds, especially that chandelier hanging above.

French Interior Ceiling Light

You can create a French interior even if you use pieces that are not French. This is a Swedish antique settee paired with a French mirror. They work perfectly in this French style room.

French Interior Light Fixture

Champagne colored curtains and French accents make this bathroom feel decidedly French. A crystal chandelier sparkles above a soaking tub. What other light fixture could we expect in such a lovely bath?

A beautiful site! The wall colors in living room (Swedish settee) and the bath are wonderful, even online. Could they be a full spectrum paint? Does anyone know what they are?
