Mastering the art of French dressing may be decidedly tricky, but luckily capturing the unique and distinctive French style in your home is a little easier to do.
In this blog article Mira Showers will show you how to give your bathroom a dash of Gallic glamour, and what’s more, you won’t even have to learn the language!
Focus on Chic Comfort
Forget sharp lines and high modernity, as traditional French interiors are comfortable and homely, yet with an understated dash of luxury.
Rustic wood should be the predominant material in your French-inspired bathroom, but don’t bother picking up anything brand new – instead, scour car boot sales, vintage shops and antiques dealers for well-worn carved wooden furniture like drawers, cabinets and a stool, then paint them white for that essential shabby chic style.
Complement the larger wooden pieces with smaller accessories like white wicker baskets of varying sizes, lined with pretty floral fabrics inspired by the French countryside.
The luxurious element of your French décor should come from pretty fixtures and fittings like cut-glass trinket boxes, crystal-style door and drawer handles, an ornate mirror and even a small chandelier, for eye-catching touches of elegance.
The French also take their bathing very seriously, so shower in style with a Mira Montpellier Shower. The large fixed deluge showerhead comes in three sizes so you can choose the one that suits your bathroom, plus it also features a handheld shower for extra convenience.
The Mira Montpellier Shower is big on looks too, with its polished chrome finish and white accents that will perfectly round off your beautiful French bathroom.
