Parisian Design Details and French Decor Finds

Recent posts spotlighting Belgian, French country, and French farmhouse styles have heightened my desire to put a trip to Europe on the calendar. What is it about Old World style, antiques, architecture, and European design details that feel so welcoming, rich, and beautiful? We’ll peek here at a few Parisian Design Details and French Decor Finds.

A few of the decor finds might be at home in a Parisian style interior, while the rest are more rustic and ready for country spaces.

Recently, I organized more photos from a trip to France to once again study what all the fuss is about. Many of you will have more expertise in this area, and I would love to hear your input on the topic.

Parisian Design Details and French Decor Finds

I snapped this (above) of apartment rooftops seen just outside the kitchen window of a Paris apartment we rented near Notre Dame. Can you even fathom all of the detail, texture, age, and interest spied through one narrow French window?

Back inside, the paneled doors in the apartment were so lovely, and the egg shaped door knobs influenced me enough that I used them in our own home on all the interior wood doors.

Paris Apartment Dining Room

Of course, the classic Louis style dining chairs are also a silhouette we don’t seem to tire of!

Parisian Design Details

The iron scroll Juliet balcony railings are such a romantic detail and one I would love to incorporate in a French style new build (in my dreams). Until then, I have a couple of architectural iron gate fragments from France which I have used in the garden and even on the walls.

Parisian bistro tables and chairs are such iconic eye candy. I saw the little recycled blue yogurt pots used as vases everywhere, and I brought home as many as would fit in my suitcase. It’s interesting that I snapped this photo below in 2012, when succulents were not yet EVERYWHERE in the USA.

Windows in Paris

I could not get enough of the architectural interest of the windows. Oh, my goodness. Where do I begin with the French windows in our hotel room? Gold leaf, delicate gold silk curtains on sashes, solid bronze sculptural hardware, ivy window boxes. To say that my senses were nearly overwhelmed by beauty is an understatement.

Steel Windows in Paris

Another gorgeous window and completely different…industrial steel windows that feel modern and work so well with any design style. If you read my post highlighting Chateau Domingue the other day, you’ll know I mentioned they offer these custom made thin steel beauties.

Ivy in Window Boxes

If I get around to adding window boxes on a few of our windows, this idea of planting just one specimen…ivy…is one I will consider.
