French country bedrooms are as dreamy as they sound. Can you imagine sleeping in a beautiful French farmhouse, perhaps a winery not far from your home? That’s exactly the feeling that the design of these French country quarters aims to convey.
7 French Country Style For Bedroom Next Makeover Plan
From country motifs to French elegance, there is something truly charming and comforting about a bedroom designed in the French country style. Space can be feminine without being cloying, and typically filled with a soft, but cheerful palette. Here are the ideas!
1. Traditional Colors
The French country palette for a bedroom would include a mix of pale pastel hues and creamy whites with accents in vibrant colors found in nature. Colors can be combined in unexpected ways, but they’re never harsh or too bright. This bedroom has a muted palette that’s anything but drab. Iconic French country patterns of gingham checks and florals in pale yellows and greens are softened even more by creamy white bedding, furniture, and carpeting.
2. Vintage Touch
Layered pillows of various sizes in a range of textures is a hallmark of a French country bedroom. The subdued palette in this bedroom keeps it serene. A wicker headboard and the weathered ceiling treatment adds even more texture to the room. Vintage ornate mirrors above the bed and statuesque lamp bases are common details that create a more formal version of French decor.
3. Country Canopy
Elaborate canopies can be found in upscale French country bedrooms. The style of this canopy, called a bed crown coronet, adds a touch of regal elegance. You’ll rarely find matching pieces in French country decor. Mismatched pieces, such as the distressed dressing screen, antique chair, bed, and bed bench look like they’ve been passed down and accumulated over the years.
4. Minimalist Style
In this rare minimalist French country bedroom, the vintage headboard becomes the focus of the room. An eclectic touch is added to this understated room in the form of a personal and romantic poem that’s stenciled in gold above the headboard. Touches of pure elegance make this room luxurious, including a duvet, crystal chandelier, and ornate crown molding.
5. Monochromatic French
This bedroom has subtle hints of French country style, minus the mix of patterns and color. Traditional touches still include layered and textured bedding, a rustic wood ceiling, the wrought iron and crystal chandelier, a tufted-leather bench, and a vintage mirror above the upholstered headboard. A unifying creamy white palette gives the room an extraordinarily restful look.
6. Red and White Nuance
Red-and-white toile fabric is the star of this bedroom that’s otherwise a cool white. Cotton toile draperies that pool on the floor give a casual touch to the bedroom. A rustic ceiling with beams and a ubiquitous crystal chandelier also give the room it’s French flair. Curvaceous console and side tables soften the room, as well.
7. Old But Gold
The ornate carved wooden headboard and a vintage side chair give this bedroom its subtle, but elegant, French country charm. A bit more on the eclectic side, the decor of the room mixes in some modern touches like the white side lamp, leopard-print pillow, and fun play on artwork above the headboard.
