How French Style can revolutionise the Look of your Bedroom

Britain remains one of the most multi-cultural nations’ in the world, and its fashion and design trends are influenced by styles from multiple regions. If there is one cultural influence that stands out, however, it is the style of the French, which has made the short journey across the Channel and had a huge impact on the way in which Britons dress, act and remodel their living spaces. French style and its unique design trends have the potential to revolutionize the look of your home, particularly when applied to compact and intimate spaces such as the bedroom.

With this in mind, what are the prevailing French design trends and how can they help to refresh your bedroom space? Consider the following: -

1. Consider Rustic and Minimalist Design Principles

France is renowned for its country landscape, and this has inspired a rustic design trends that defines homes throughout rural regions. This has proved to be extremely popular in the UK, as home-owners have the potential to apply a rustic and minimalist design to their bedroom and develop a truly romantic space that still manages to create the illusion of luxury and open-plan grandeur. This is particularly suitable for individuals who own new-build properties, as the compact nature of these homes demands a design ethos that optimizes floor space.

2. Paris Meets Provence

Although the fusion of sophisticated Parisian flair and relaxed French country style is typically associated with the living room, it is increasingly being applied to the bedroom. This is a unique, diverse and textually fascinating design philosophy, and one that utilizes fixtures such a trumeau mirror to infuse character and innovation into an otherwise standardize living space. This is a continuation of modern alternative trends in the UK, which encourages the fusion of opposing themes to create an entirely unique look.

3. The Classic French Bed

Whenever you consider French furniture the first item that springs to mind is the traditional and spectacular four-poster bed. This is an iconic feature of French country style, and it remains popular among UK residents who have a fondness for nostalgia and flamboyant design principles. While purchasing a classic French bed or associated furniture is not easy in the UK due to the lack of availability, outlets such as The French Bedroom Company provide a comprehensive range of products at relatively affordable prices.

  2. Although this is a beautiful bed-frame I am still strongly attached to my full-wave waterbed. I love going to bed at night and climbing into the nice warm bed. My bed also offers 6 storage drawers on each side plus a long storage area from head to foot in the center portion of the platform my bed sits on. I am not ready to give that up.

  3. i love this bed frame it's so beautiful.

  4. I love this style but not sure I would like cleaning such detailed furniture.

  5. That is so true, as you said, "...the fusion of sophisticated Parisian flair and relaxed French country style is typically associated with the living room..." When I was younger I had the typical 70s little girl's french provincial bedroom set, it was white, and included the four-poster bed, probably similar to the style you mentioned. Why is this style not in my bedroom now? Especially the one you pictured! :)


  6. Hi,

    I absolutely love your style.
    It looks so much better rearranged. The orange cushion on the couch,
    the rug and the cute planter on the coffee table add so much cheer to the room.
    I just convinced trevor to rearrange the living room so the TV isnt
    on the wall staring at you when you first walk in -
    makes everything feel so much brighter.
    Really this post is useful for us.

    Thanking you,
