Parisian Chic Décor for your Outdoor Living Solution




It’s a particular mix of new and old, elegant and rustic, Parisian décor is the definition of chic. A mix of vintage and modern furniture coupled with a traditional color scheme, when done right, can make any room look magazine-worthy. Best of all, because of the ability to use old furniture accents, which, when new, can be a large fraction of a room make-over budget, decorating a room in this style can be done at low cost. So gather something borrowed and something new, and transform your patio cover into a French getaway with these easy tips!

“Mix” It Up


Utilizing your current wicker/rattan furniture with plush cushions and mixing it in with hand-me-downs or worn-down iron furniture from antique shops is the key to any Parisian look. Flea market finds can be both beneficial to the look and to your wallet when designing a room in this style. In addition to mixing furniture material, mixing textures such as concrete, tile, glass or marble is also another great way to bring the Parisian look to the forefront.



“Brighten” It Up


 “Pops of color” doesn’t usually exist in Parisian décor. When utilizing color, instead think muted green, blue, grey, beige, brown and white. French apartments usually lack natural light and tend to be rather dark, because of this, walls are usually very light in color (and most of the time, white). Where you see color should be brought in by flowers and plants, instead.





“Living” It Up


Bringing living plants and flowers into your Parisian look is a great way to bring in color to a room that is, for the most part, neutral. Choosing flowers that have stiff silhouettes, such as Crespedia’s and Statice add depth to any room and keep the eye of the beholder upwards. Hanging potted plants work great to fulfill this goal, as well (such as Fountain Grass and Evergreen). As they say in French, "la vie est belle", which literally means "life is beautiful”, so any plant or flower you pick will be the perfect addition to your space.

Utilizing Curtains on your Pergola

Summertime is the best time, but while the days are long, the summer months are unfortunately rather short. Don’t let the heat keep you from going outside; with the creative use of outdoor curtains on your pergola, you can have the privacy you need this summer, while keeping both the sun, wind, and bugs out. This will not only keep you and your family safe but will protect expensive outdoor furniture.
There are massive differences between indoor and outdoor curtains, in both style and fabric type. For outdoor curtains, our favorite options feature cotton canvases, polyester blends, acrylic and olefin. In fact, Olefin is considered a prime fabric to use. Research has shown that because of its lightweight, soft, and extremely durable weave, Olefin does not fade and is sure to last.
