French Country - Wall Decor

Creating a distinct sense of space and time is the key challenge facing every interior designer or decorator. Thankfully, French Country style wall d├ęcor is virtually defined by the evocation of days gone by and the public spaces where travel, dining and romance have all been celebrated. Station clocks with roman numerals are probably the most direct connection to days gone by, reminding us of the days long before wristwatches or mobile phones made knowing the time (or catching that train) a given. Carved wood panels, finished in whitewash and distressed textures harken back to an even more distant past: the beauty of Norman Cathedrals, the legend of Joan of Arc and the majestic styles of the various King Louis.
