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.

Enlist help.  Whether this be from family members in your house, a close friend, or even guests coming to your party! Delegate small tasks before, during, and after the event to reduce the workload on yourself and help keep the responsibilities and the mess at bay. Aunt Sally likely won't mind bringing out appetizers to the poolside while you make drinks, and your spouse can greet guests at the door so they make their way to the hub of the party faster. If your get-together is large, consider asking a friend to cohost w…

Summer Sunroom Fun: An Old Fashioned Independence Day Celebration

The 4th of July is a fantastic opportunity for friends and family to gather together. And because it is summertime, what could be better than an outdoor party? Your sunroom provides an essential component of the perfect backyard celebration.

 Even though your guest may eat and mingle in your backyard, set up the food table and paper goods inside your sunroom. Having the food table in the sunroom means there is easy access both to a kitchen area as well as the yard, but it also provides some protection from direct sunlight, wind, or bugs that may want to join your party.  Your sunroom can become a unique expression of the holiday. Do you want a "small-town" feel for your 4th of July party? Use galvanized tin buckets or wooden crates to hold paper goods and utensils. Decorate the table with red, white and blue bandannas, and put tea lights or candles in Mason jars as evening approaches. Decorate the sunroom windows with banners or pennants made from scraps of vintage fabric.

Summertime in your Sunroom

So, you're thinking about adding a Four-Season sunroom onto your home. Sunrooms let light into your home and into your life. There are many ways to make your sunroom unique to you all year round. Summer is a time of warmth and growth, why not for your home too?
Nature brought inside  The biggest and most obvious way to decorate your sunroom in the summer is to add flowers. You can also add plants, vines, and water features. The Four-Seasons official Pinterest page has many summer ideas, especially nature related ones. It's an easy and common way to bring life and color to a sun-bathed space.
Artwork in your home  If plants or flowers aren't your thing, or you can't seem to keep them alive, you can go for artwork. A sunroom is a perfect space for art in 3D forms. I don't mean sculptures though. If Sculptures are your thing, then go for it! I'm talking about less expensive and smaller 3D art though. Like pillows, blankets, and other moveable decorations. The bes…
