Create a Little Parisian Flair in Your Bedroom

Ah, Paris, city of lights, what could be more romantic? Now you can bring a little Parisian style into your home, especially your bedroom. Parisian style is a mix of new and old, where traditional and modern pieces coexist peacefully, side by side. It is always chic and stylish, just like the city itself. However, the intriguing mix of contemporary and vintage only looks effortless. Here are a few tips for bringing Parisian style to life in your bedroom.

Mix and Not Match

The typical Parisian room will have a mix of old and new styles, art, and books, creating a distinctively eclectic look and feel. It is never too precious or too perfect, but carefully put together so as to look not too thought-out, but definitely not thoughtless. Layered, curated but undecorated, this look depends on the perfect paring of flea market finds or heirlooms with modern pieces for an organic, bohemian eclectic style.

Vintage Appeal

Paris is famous for its flea markets that appear every weekend in a different arrondissement (borough) as if by magic. The by Stanley Furniture exemplifies the glorious juxtaposition of pieces and periods that are the essence of French style. Anchor your room with the Reverie Panel Bed, then accessorize with quirky pieces, knickknacks, and curiosities from your own flea market treasure hunting.

Style With Prints & Patterns

Mixing prints and patterns can bring an airy freshness your home. But it can also be a challenge to mix and match in a way that doesn’t overpower or suffocate your rooms. By keeping it 60/30/10 you’ll create inviting spaces that you love to relax and entertain in. To follow the 60/30/10 guideline, you’ll use 60% of a favorite pattern, 30% of a second pattern, and 10% of a third as an accent. Then experiment with a range of scales: a narrow stripe, a midsize geometric, and a bold floral. Balance the look with solids on a sofa or accent rug.

Warning: Nice Curves Ahead

Curves have always been sexy, but recently furniture designers have been bending to fashion’s trend by rounding edges and flirting with circles and curves. These are elements that you often don't notice but add a sense of style and comfort to your d├ęcor. The swirling shapes are sensuous, but also unexpectedly practical. Curved sofas draw people close and round dining tables make it easier for everyone to join in the conversation.
For example, the Miramont King Upholstered Sleigh Bed with Button Tufted Headboard by Bernhardt adds romance and glamour to everyday furnishings. Designed to be the grand centerpiece of your bedroom, the bed not only has a contemporary feel but exudes comfort and luxury. The round accent tables with metallic bases add opulence, making this room one you’ll never want to leave.

Love Seats to Adore

Finding the right size sofa that perfectly fits in your space can be a challenging endeavor. If you add something bigger than it should be, your space will feel cluttered and your piece will look bulky. If you add something too small, your room will feel empty and cold. To find the right balance you have to know your space well.

A great way to avoid this dilemma is by incorporating a love seat. Love seats are the perfect size for a studio or loft with limited space, they are also great for pairing with a larger sofa for bigger spaces. The coziness and comfort that a love seat adds to a room is why we adore them! Who wouldn’t want to snuggle with a blanket or loved one while watching a movie on a Friday night? At Baer’s we have a wide variety of love seats. Our complimentary interior designers will help you think outside the box when it comes to assembling the perfect living room.
