Paris is known as the “City of Light” which rings true in Parisian home design. Realtors, consider the following tips when staging your next listing and give your buyers a peek into their very own Parisian inspired dream home. Être inspiré par le design… Bonne Chance! (Be inspired by the design…Good luck!)
1. Let the sun shine in
If a room allows for brilliant natural light, keep those windows unobstructed. Don’t block out light with long or heavy curtains.
2. Use white as a color
Though white can be overlooked as its own color, choosing white as the signature color for a room can actually create a beautiful and bold design.
3. Create contrast with iron
Paris is known for its iron balconies, window decorations, doors, gates and fences. On windows, the iron creates a natural contrast to the sun light and white decor.
4. Add a pop of color with flowers
Plant flowers in window boxes to give a splash of color to a mostly black and white design. Fresh flowers in a vase works as well.
