Bright and airy with antique-style accessories. French style often includes an antique or two, or more affordable Provençal-style chairs like these. Paint them fresh white for a classic look or have fun and use a more modern color. A simple, delicate crystal and iron chandelier always adds a touch of glamour to a rustic space. This weathered grandfather clock (although more Swedish than French in style) adds to the rustic charm.I love this simple table setting that uses coffee cups as little vases. Purple is very typical in French florals — try mixing lavender with yellow daffodils.To keep everything bright and airy, paint the walls white. Flood the room with natural light by using simple white sheers and prop up an oversize mirror to help bounce light around the room.
