Give your home Parisian charm
If you dream of eating a croissant while overlooking the Eiffel Tower, today is your lucky day! Although we can't book you on an international flight to Paris, we can show you how to exude European flair in your Milwaukee home. Take a look at these tips on how to decorate like a true Parisian.
- Chandeliers: Nothing is more Parisian than a chic chandelier. Paris is known as the "City of Lights" after all! Use a stylish lighting fixture in your dining room or living room for a fancy look.
- Throw rugs: "A large rug is the centerpiece of any Parisian apartment floor. Although Paris herringbone wooden floors are pretty, the downside is that walking across them can be very noisy, so a nice thick rug is a good way of muffling the noise and adding color (as well as warmth)," writes at blogger for ApartmentTherapy.com. Try selecting innovative patterns or bright colors to add some visual diversity to your room.
- White walls: In order to brighten up their lofts, most Parisians stick with white walls. However, if this look is too drab for you, you'll want to liven it up with brightly colored curtains and drapes.
- Vintage trinkets: Shop flea markets or antique stores for one-of-a-kind accessories. These vintage trinkets, ranging from statement pieces of furniture to chic vases, can give your home European flair.
