French Country Decor / French Decor

French country style decorative accessories prove that details can make all the difference when it comes to creating an effortless and authentic effect. Country ceramics and stoneware, in a white or eggshell glaze, connect a space to the earth, reminding us of the simple joys of farmhouse breakfasts and antique washbasins. Antique or distressed mercury glass is another key material for creating a strong sense of connections to times and places of the past. Carved pieces like fleur de lis, candleholders or architectural found objects, also add to a distinct sense of heritage and history when placed on tabletops or mantles. If a strong French accent is desired, there are simply no better fabrics than ‘stamped’ burlap or toile to work into a space. Throw pillows casually placed on chairs and settees complete the look.
