The French have a huge appreciation for all things antique. Get yourself an antique mirror with signs of age on it, a book case or wardrobe with scuffs, scratches and bits of missing paint can bring a sense of history to a room. Grab yourself a vintage desk covered with coffee stains and water rings adding that bit of character to your bedroom.

Go for gold
Glamour, a major function when it comes to Parisian interiors and adding that touch of gold is often the icing on the cake. Get yourself a gold frame and hang it above your bed or a gold framed mirror propped up against the wall. To finish it off, get yourself a bed side table and paint the legs a gold colour to match. Remember to go for an antique gold though, nothing too bright and shiny.
A bouquet of flowers is the perfect accessory for a Parisian room but don’t go too over the top with your arrangements and don’t go crazy with the colour mixture. Stock up on single stems like roses or hydrangea for the perfect choice of flower.
Drapes / Pillows / Bedding
No Parisian inspired bedroom is complete without luscious curtains and bedding. Silk is usually the material of choice but linen will be just as beautiful and elegant. Try and find material with pleat detailing and if you are dying for some bold colour in your bedroom then this is the place to do it.
