Shoshana Gosselin added this to Color Play: The Power of Purple
Purple works with all styles including this French-country scene-stealing bed.
Lisa Frederick added this to So Your Style Is: French Country
Style Secret: Layered FabricsJust like the furnishings, French country fabrics create an artful, engaging potpourri. Toile is the quintessential print for this style, but toss in a few notes of gingham, stripes, florals and solids for a pleasing pastiche. Textural fabrics, such as linen, tapestry and matelassé, lend the tactile interest that the look demands. Stay away from formal textiles such as damask, which can feel too prim.New-world chic: Two different toiles combine with oversize gingham checks in this airy bedroom, unified by the lavender palette (a nice nod to the lavender that blooms across French fields). The soft, swooping canopy adds just the right touch of drama and elegance.Browse thousands of beautiful bedrooms
While guys can rock a purple shirt or lavender tie, this space is nothing but girly, thanks to small-scale furniture, curvy forms, a swooping canopy, a ruffly chair skirt and tiers of toile. Streams of natural light enhance the soft effect.

Rarely will accessories in a French country room be purely decorative. They usually have an undertone of usefulness: wall-hung plates that can be pulled down for service, jugs and jars that house kitchen staples, baskets that corral plump produce from the garden. Open shelving is a natural partner for this look — everyday items enjoy pride of place rather than languishing behind cabinet doors. New-world chic: The oversize candelabra on this table anchors the room yet also serves a purpose. It harks back to the days when candles and fires were the primary light source for the farmers and peasants of the French countryside. Although it holds its own with decorative swoops and swirls, its functionality keeps it from feeling pretentious.
