French Country Strikes A Balance Between Rustic & Elegant
While if you head to Paris or the castle region, you’ll be inclined to find interiors with far more flourishes in the form of ornate gilding, paneling, and molding, country decor is by far more rustic—but not wholly so.
The classic French elegance is merged with a rustic, country aesthetic, creating a balance between beauty and comfort. It feels lived-in and welcoming, but still impeccable. “It’s also playful with its touches of botanical themes in art, fabric, wallpaper, and accessories,” Richardson says.
