7. Don’t choose just one color or one style in your home
Having a monochromatic home or one made in just one style is not French at all and it tends to be dull. So, you can stick with a color if you want but add contrast in that room with different layers, fabrics, prints and small colorful accents. Also, if you don’t want too many styles, find styles that work great together and match them.
8. Play with different items
Two styles that don’t necessarily go great together can look amazing in the same room. Think about color, lines and proportion and mix velvet with terrazzo, vintage elements with a Scandinavian furniture or industrial elements with vintage pieces.
