French Home: Decor and Ideas to Frenchify Your Home
As a Francophile and lover of all things French, I love adding French home decor to my apartment to give me all the French vibes. Below, I’m sharing some favorite finds that you, too, may be interested in checking out to create your own French style home.
French Home Decor Finds
In France, it was so easy to find beautiful home decor at the weekend brocantes and small home shops spread throughout the city.
When I came back to the U.S., I found myself longing for those pretty homewares and just my overall time living in Paris.
To bring a little piece of Paris home and create the elegant vibes of a French style home, I’m sharing the following finds in the hopes that they inspire you too!
Cuisine Brass Sign from Anthropologie
This beautiful brass sign would be perfect on a wall in the kitchen. You could hang it above the sink, stove, or include it in a gallery of artwork on an empty wall in the kitchen. Shop here.
Nothing feels more French to me than copper in the kitchen. While a set of copper pots hanging over the stove is always a dream, having a simple copper kettle can really make a statement when looking to add a touch of French country chic to your kitchen. Shop here.
This signature French candle adds the perfect blend of fresh, sweet, and musky notes to deliver French elegance to your home. It’s a pricey candle, but you don’t need to burn it for very long for the candle to disperse its fragrance throughout your space. Shop here.
If you dream of the south of France, then this gorgeous pillow from Le Mas de Poiriers will contribute the perfect air of Provencal magic to your home. I love the darling watercolor-style print on this pillow. Shop here.
Bistro Tile Collection from Anthropologie
I’m a big fan of the bistro tile collection from Anthropologie. I own several of the pieces, including the Bonjour mugs and little nut/candy bowls. Nothing gives me more Paris cafe vibes than this set! Shop here.
This cozy wool throw features a map of Paris in a modern style that’s perfect for homes decorated with a contemporary, Parisian flair. Shop here.
Every French style home needs a quality salt and pepper mill like this favorite French brand, Peugeot’s. I use mine everyday and love the different settings on them to get the perfect grind. Shop here.
I picked up this exact poster from one of the green stalls along the Seine river and framed it for my kitchen. It adds just the right touch of French country charm to my otherwise contemporary, California kitchen. Shop here.
This is one of my favorite French coffee table books. The book features stunning photographs by Georgianna Lane of Paris flowers, doors, and snippets of the city. It’s the kind of book you’ll want to pick up and peruse, over and over again. Shop here.
This cozy patio set reminds me of the patio sets you’d find on Paris balconies, where there’s just enough room to host a quaint apéro with a partner or friend. Shop here.
If there’s one thing I made sure I had enough room for in my suitcase, it was this set of La Rochere bumble bee glasses. I found these, along with the matching tumblers, in a little Paris store for a steal and made it a priority to fit them in my suitcase home. These are French personified. Shop here.
While we’re decorating with some kitchen items, I can’t forget to mention these Laguiole Knives. Expertly crafted, these steak knives are the epitome of French style entertaining and would look beautiful set up on your dinner table. Shop here.
Pottery Barn Jacquard Medallion Duvet
If you’re looking for that French flair for your bedroom, this beautiful jacquard duvet from Pottery Barn is fabulous. I love Pottery Barn’s bedding and have found that their linens stand up lots of use and washes for years. Shop here.
If you’re looking for something a little more unique, luxurious, and très Francais, then I have to mention Alexandre Turpault’s linens. While they are more affordable in France, they are still considered a luxury linen company and make the most sensational, sateen duvets with gorgeous prints. Shop here.
I love having an olive tree in the home for the Provencal vibes it provides. Nearly Natural offers some beautiful faux olive trees that look incredibly real without any of the care or weather requirements that a real olive tree needs. Shop here.
There’s nothing quite as French as an antique, gold mirror. Having a floor length mirror like this, or one hanging above a console, adds just the right touch of French opulence to your home. Shop here.
I hope you enjoyed some of the ideas and products shared here. Hopefully it will give you some inspiration for decorating your own space to create that French home style.
