Fabulous French-style bathrooms

Categories: Bathrooms

For the day that's in it, we're looking at classic French-style bathrooms and how you can create the look easily at home.   Much like food and fashion, the French really know what they're doing when it comes to decor and creating a look that will be timelessly beautiful in their homes. Chic and often eclectic, the classic French look is romantic and sophisticated all at once. Here are some tips on how to inject a bit of Oooh La La into your bathroom.

Our top tips for nailing that French vibe

  1. Don't be afraid to mix and match. The French have the shabby chic look nailed on. Think textures and statement pieces, colours and patterns. Mix it up a little and let your personality shine through. A statement chair would look fabulous in a French-inspired bathroom. French chair
  2. Antiques. The French look often mixes old and new. Think baroque or Art Deco, and old world vibe mixed in with modern conveniences like power showers and gorgeous claw-foot baths. The gorgeous Countess would be perfect for  a French themed bathroom. 
  3. Get your lighting right. Glamorous statement ceiling lights and perfect lighting around your mirrors. Candles are also a must for a romantic, luxurious bubble bath. A chandelier would be perfect for this look, but make sure it is suitable for use in a bathroom. bathroom chandelier
  4. Glamorous tiles. Checkered black and white tiles, or patterned Victorian styled tiles, fit right in with the French look. Stunning. 
  5. Wood. Whether it's with panelling or a gorgeous vanity unit, bringing wood into your bathroom is another way of adding a different texture and a soft, romantic, timeless look to your bathroom.
