In the ancient eras of the 18th century, the Classic French style ruled many living abodes’ interiors. Since then, it stands successful in winning the hearts of the French people and the global alike! A classic amalgamation of noble architecture, flaunting the Baroque, Rococo, and Empire styles, has successfully created an uproar in today’s world of interior design. Parisian theme interior designing relies upon varied colours and patterns. And it mainly uses shades of light lilac and pink – a combination that balances well with shades of metallic colours and hues of green. The flooring generally depends upon the usage of varied yet unique decorative items. The most commonly used laminated or parquet light wooden textures dominate the floorboards with a tinge of light-coloured hues.
Subtle notes of principled tenderness re-invents the Rococo style. The Baroque style paints an image of the royal chambers, without much pomp and show. Parisian interiors believe in the concept of wallpapers with pictures of old calico. And most of them have a matte or semi-matte finish.
