From the historic scenery to the tasty food, nothing beats a European vacation! However, if you don't have the opportunity to travel overseas, a home makeover will do the trick. Take a look at some design tips that will turn your home into a chic Parisian loft.
- Chandelier: There's a reason why Paris is known as "The City of Lights." A glimmering chandelier can add a romantic touch to your dining room or living room.
- Throw rugs: Warm up your toes by draping lavish throw rugs across your floor. Invite color into your room by choosing a vibrant shade or creative pattern.
- White walls: "Paris apartments are notoriously dark (unless located on the top floor), so Parisians keep their walls white to maximize the amount of light," writes a blogger for Apartment Therapy. "But if you do crave some color, create an accent wall." You can even contrast brightly colored curtains and drapes against your white walls for a true pop of pizzazz.
- Vintage accessories: Give your home a one-of-a-kind look by shopping flea markets for unique finds. Look for items that exude European charm, whether that be a black-and-white photo of the Eiffel Tower or a chic vase to hold roses. You can even purchase vintage curtain tie-backs to jazz up your window fashions.
