A French villa, a French country bathroom home and a Parisian apartment can be miles apart, but they all share a taste for design. A bathroom mirrors a French décor when it combines style with elegance, grace and a touch of the unexpected. Keep the style clean and classic for timely appeal.

Wall paint in a French design bathroom varies from a cold blue to a warm golden orange. Possible wallpaper design includes a damask, border or metallic print. Some bathrooms can use a white breadboard on parts of the wall. Accent colors for the wall can be silver or nickel tone for the blue. Golden orange walls tend to get the gold tone metallic accents. Black wrought iron can be used in either. The floors can tile in the subway tile, a black and white design or marble. A window treatment can consist of cafe curtains in a colorful design for a country bathroom or a clean curtain in a more elegant bathroom. Louver gaps are also an option in many rooms. A skirt of French ticking material can describe the bottom of sink hide storage under and luxurious, thick towels in various shades hanging from hooks on the wall and in baskets. A country French bathroom can include a wrap mat for warmth in winter.
Rather than using regular cabinets to store their bathroom supplies, the French can create a display with the items. Colorful soap gels and oils go in clear bottles, while a perfume or cologne collection goes on a mirrored tray in the free. The French design may contain an armoire or consist of painted or stencil patterns on existing cabinets. A vanity can be in a larger bathroom with an antique mirror above. Framed landscape prints are combined with forged wheel designs for towel racks, toilet paper holders and a mirror or bell. Soap dishes can be glass or ceramic with ceramic on a shelf. A pharmacist’s bathroom set holds a toothbrush and liquid hand soap, while the shelf contains small braided baskets for toiletries, makeup and small bathroom items. A crystal chandelier or two antique lamp lamps provide ambient lighting for a bath or you can set a shelf of scented candles with plants.
Show up some simple curtains with white and blue toil – fabric printed with care illustrious herded-French scenes. “Turn your kitchen table into a pastoral oasis with this French country home decor.”) The print will import the flavor of the country of France while the white background allows plenty of sunlight to pass through into space. Paint the walls a solar reinforcement yellow (shade of mustard, but paler) to complement the curtains and make the room look lighter.
