Choosing the right decor is key when you’re looking to create that perfect Parisian bedroom look. The key is to not go overboard with decor but to keep things simple and light. Plants are a perfect choice here.

Picking out a couple of plants that work well in bedrooms is the key to creating an airy, natural space that fits with the Parisian style. Two or three are just enough, but if you’re a green thumb don’t be afraid to add more.

Minimalistic Decor

One of the staples of Parisian decor is a bright, airy room. To achieve that light feeling, avoid too much decor, so you don’t “drown” the room. 

A couple of minimalistic paintings, and a visually interesting rug, can add a lot of flair to the room. Just be mindful of the decor, and remember, when it comes to the Parisian look – less is always more.

White Bedding Is Very Parisian

Another great way to achieve a Parisian look with little effort is to invest in proper bedding. Choosing white linen sheets works beautifully. These sheets will instantly add that gorgeous french flair to your bedroom.

Adding a canopy as they did here is optional. Even though it looks elegant, and will surely make you feel like royalty, sadly not every room allows for it. But if you have a spacious bedroom, by all means, go for it!

Wall Molding Is Super Chic

Wall molding makes your room look elegant and put together. It also adds enough visual interest so you don’t need to go overboard with the decor.

A Crystal Chandelier Makes All the Difference

Not many things look as lavish as a crystal chandelier. We all associate chandeliers with grand golden palaces and royalty. So if you want to have a luxe Parisian bedroom, consider investing in one of these.

You don’t have to go all in. A smaller chandelier can still look as regal as a big one, but it’s much cheaper and more likely to fit in with the rest of your room.

Pick Sage Green for a Hint of Color

Go for Parquet Floors

Every bedroom needs a good mirror. Mirrors make great decor, they’re practical and they can often make the room feel bigger. But if you want your mirror to have a little Parisian kick, be sure to get a large gold-framed one.

A big eye-catching mirror is another staple of the Parisian look. The gold rim is chic and expensive looking, but it’s not overbearing in the slightest.

An Accent Chair Is a Fantastic Choice
