A Little Bit Of Provence In Your Home

Provence France 100x100 A Little Bit Of Provence In Your HomeProvence is not only one of France’s best-loved regions; it’s also the one which has, arguably, had a greater influence on design than any other.

Provence is, of course, a hot region. So its design concepts are usually all about cool minimalism – but in a very traditional farmhouse type of way. And Provence oak furniture is also well-known for its warm, welcoming glow – as reflects the region itself.

Search on Provence interiors on the web and you’ll soon get a feel for what the region’s designs are all about; simplicity, quality, rustic charm and utility.

Some furniture suppliers specialize in providing furnishings which are true to the region’s design bases. Decorating with rustic, solid-looking furniture would grace any home interior looking to create this sort of design and feel.

It’s then easy to follow the motif throughout your home if this is the look you’re trying to create. Everything from beds to bedside tables, dining tables to whole kitchens can be created in a Provence style with relative ease – and the overall effect is truly stunning.

Of course, it may not be appropriate to every home. If you live in a city centre loft style apartment, for example, or a modern executive style home, then a complete rustic French farmhouse style within may be a little at odds with the environment. But even in these circumstances, a Provence style kitchen or a few individual pieces that mix in well can still look stunning. It isn’t a requirement, in other words, to live in a rural setting, to create a Provence feel, but if you’re doing this throughout your home in every room – then it certainly helps.
