Parisian décor inspiration

Paris, the city of love, where vintage and modern coexist and “organized clutter” is seen as stylish and chic. Old clocks to beautiful fabrics to gilt picture frames, chandeliers, black, white, gold and purple, all mix beautifully together to inspire a perfect Parisian look. Although the Eiffel Tower may not lay outside your doorstep, achieving a look that’s both old and new, eclectic yet romantic can be done with just a few simple touches using some of our peel and stick decals!

Sketch of a Parisian inspired room

The easiest way to bring Parisian style home, is to bring to your room pictures of French landmarks including Paris and the Eiffel Tower, black and white vintage photographs or paintings of the French countryside. Nothing speaks more to Parisian culture than the beautiful sites and scenery of the city itself!

Offsetting a modern room with vintage details and accessories is another common theme that can be found throughout Parisian homes. By bringing in items and furniture that have a time-worn elegance, you can layer in the old with the new and start to create a mixed look that’s both unique and stylish.

Last but not least, incorporating raven colored accents throughout your room work to tie the whole Parisian look together. With a chic touch of black on picture frames, lamp shades or even pillows, the plain becomes glamorous and the old becomes new.

Fall 2013 Trends in Home Fashions

Fall Style Trends from Maison et Objet

maisonetobjet

Concurrent with Fashion Week in NYC and London, the Maison et Objet design show in Paris is the mecca of hip for home decor and interior design trends. Here is a full report on colors, prints, materials, and inspirations behind the beautiful designs, products and textiles on display.

The quatrefoil design, meaning four leaves, and its fashionable sister the barbed quatrefoil, were prevalent. This Gothic design is a decorative framework, and lends a cultured Renaissance flair to anything it touches. Watch for it in fabrics, furniture and accessories this year.

Florals are also enjoying a fashionable awakening. Pretty and artistic watercolor florals, mid to large scale blossoms, vintage floral prints and big open flowers were in bloom all over the place. Flowers are fresh, romantic and timeless in decor, it is no wonder they continue to evolve and pop up in different incarnations.

330277 The global-chic tribal trend has gone South. Southwestern designs have shed their salmon cinnamon and earth toned roots and re-emerged as vivid trend-setters in fun palettes. Native American and South American patterns have been energized with pinks, greens and purples for a vivacious twist on the cultured and spiritual design style.

Watch out paint because solid color walls are out and bold graphic wallpaper is back in big time. Patterned walls were predominantly seen implemented as feature walls, with a complimentary color rounding out the rest of the space, but this look was dazzling left and right at Maison this year. Novelty designs, artistic prints and unusual, vivid wallpaper designs have reinvented the traditional looks of yesteryear for unexpectedly high fashion walls that beg to be noticed.

An amalgam of time periods and resources were being mixed with pleasing results, such as natural materials being modernized with sophisticated fittings. Vintage fabrics were everywhere, looking fabulous in contemporary stylings. Reclaimed wood and earthy materials like drift wood, clay and stone worked themselves into au courant designs with fresh colors and modern touches.

Color trends included lots of mid-tone pastels, like dusty pink, taupe, toned down lemon lime, peach, and especially everything aqua, giving a pretty and pleasant look to items. Orange and red were peppering in splashes of warm spice to designs, and opal, mother of pearl, and sequins were bringing an understated luxe. The result was quite lovely and not flashy for very livable looks.

A head board creates a chic focal point in a room, making your bed into a stylish and inviting space. A beautiful head board can pull a whole room together. However, not all beds have headboards to begin with, and many that do are boring or utilitarian. Especially in a dorm room, or when you have a platform bed, you may find that your bed is just lacking that special detail that a headboard brings. Luckily, it is super easy to make a DIY headboard! WallPops wall decals are the easiest way to add a design to your current headboard, or to create one on blank wall space! No nails, upholstery, power tools or heavy lifting required! Simply peel and stick to create a custom look behind your bed with instantaneously dazzling results! Check out these 3 headboard design ideas created with WallPops blox below for inspiration!

Kids World Map Dry-Erase Decal from WallPops

Maps are a staple for interior design – they add character and sophistication to any room and are always a cause for conversation. Whether yours is curling at the edges, covered in push-pins from exotic vacations or sitting behind glass in a polished frame, WallPops has a variety of new geographical decorations for everyone.
