Parisian apartment bedroom
How comfortable does this look? I can already imagine waking up to the sight of Parisian architecture, totally ready to eat a tasty croissant and sip a cup of café au lait.
It is the simplicity of Parisian decor that makes it look so stylish and attractive. Here you have everything you need to sleep well while delighting the senses: a very comfortable bed with super cozy sheets, a few pieces of decor, and a couple of plants. You really don’t even need anything extra. This look is all about minimalism and comfort.
Luckily I have managed to find an almost identical nightstand to the one in the image above. I love how simple, yet sculptural it looks.
Soft and super comfortable bedding is a must! Remember, the Parisian bedroom decor is all about delighting the senses and the sense of touch is no exception.
Add some semi sheer curtains for privacy to complete the look! Make sure they’re the same color as the bed sheets for a cohesive look.
Parisian apartment kitchen
The typical Parisian apartment kitchen is smaller than you’d think, and yet you can bet you will find it equipped with everything you could possibly need, arranged in a way that looks very chic.
The kitchen in the image above is no stranger to bold decor statements like the huge lighting fixture above, or the gorgeous marble counter. In fact, upon careful inspection, you can see that the entire kitchen is full of decor items, like multiple pictures and paintings, vases in various shapes, sizes and styles, vintage candle holders and even perfectly assorted ceramics.
One thing is for sure, every item, whether purely decorative or functional, has been perfectly curated to fit the stylish Parisian apartment aesthetic.
Nothing evokes the classic style of the Parisian apartment decor like a matching set of marble looking ceramic bowls! Both functional and stylish, these bowls can easily be displayed on an open shelf.
These bar stools add to the effortless style of the typical Parisian apartment kitchen, while still being very comfortable.
This is another great example of a stylish Parisian apartment kitchen. Here you can see the gorgeous sculpted fireplace that is so typical to the Haussmann style Parisian buildings. Meanwhile, the kitchen has open shelves with perfectly matched ceramics and white and cooper pots and pans that can easily be replicated.
Make sure to match the functional items in your kitchen to the overall design. Here, these cooper pots and pans would look lovely on any open shelf.
A stylish, sturdy cutting board will be able to also be displayed when not in use. Make sure to get a high quality one that can easily be used for a long period of time.
Parisian apartment living room
I absolutely love the typical Parisian apartment living room. This is where you really get to see that amazing Parisian chic style, mixed in perfectly with the owner’s own personality. While you can find some common traits across most Parisian apartments, it is the living rooms that really show a person’s personality, hobbies and sense of style.
Parisian style mirrors need a category on their own. They’re the main characters of every single room, and most of them have this antique, brass frame that looks so lovely. If there’s one statement piece to invest in, this is the one!
Simple and stylish, without adding too much visual weight to a space, this end table is perfect for pretty much any type of room you can think of.
Doesn’t this chair look really, really cozy? I just wanna curl up with a good French novel in it, and read for an entire afternoon, while French music is playing in the background.
Another stylish Parisian apartment living room, this time featuring the iconic sculpted fireplace and big stylish mirror above it. Of course, colorful fresh flowers are also a must, since they can elevate the look of any room!
You can’t go wrong with a marble and brass piece of furniture. This is one of those items that you can see in almost every Parisian apartment.
The ever present statement chair is a must in any stylish interior and one of the best Parisian apartment decor pieces you could ever buy! Make sure it is as comfortable as it is stylish.
This bright and airy apartment is the epitome of style and such an inspiration when it comes to combining furniture and decor from different styles in a way that looks effortless and chic.
The flair of the Parisian style comes from mixing items that are new with items that are vintage, or that belong to completely different styles and eras, in a way that is so effortless and looks like a perfectly curated museum exhibit of style and class. To achieve this look, pick things that you absolutely love, some that are new and some that are old. In order to find vintage items you can look for them at flea markets and antique stores.
This brass lamp looks timeless and totally gorgeous. No wonder it works so well with the typical Parisian style brass statement mirror.
A classic timeless material used in a modern way is always a good choice when mixing styles together in a way that looks cohesive.
Parisian apartment decor is all about expressing your personality in an artful and tasteful way. You can just tell the owner of this apartment loves art and fashion.
Any home needs a good stylish vase and this one is a perfect overall choice. Classy and timeless, this vase will fit many decor styles perfectly.
Sculptures are a Parisian apartment decor staple and this one is no exception. You can add it on top of a fireplace, like in the image above, on a dresser or on a side table.
As you can see in the picture above, marble and brass tables can be found in almost any Parisian apartment. Could it be because they are so simple and yet so stylish?
Don’t forget to add art on the walls. Whether that is in the form of paintings, photographs or collages, art is always welcome.
Parisian apartment exterior
Never neglect the exterior, whether that means a small balcony or a bigger patio. There is something about the typical Parisian bistro chair and table set that makes me want to have a tasty cup of coffee and a good conversation and just enjoy life stress free for a second.
The perfect Parisian apartment decor surely includes bistro inspired outdoor furniture and this balcony is no exception.
The typical French bistro table is a metallic one legged table that frankly, is pretty hard to find in regular stores. So unless you plan on bringing one from France, this is pretty much the only one I could find.
The typical Parisian bistro chair is a must have if you’re going for the Parisian apartment aesthetic. Similarly to the table, this style of chair is pretty hard to find (though way easier than the table). Together they should make you feel like you’re on a trip in France.
More common is a somewhat more casual balcony decor, ideal for sipping the perfect glass of wine while overlooking the gorgeous Parisian architecture.
More accessible than the typical bistro inspired outdoor furniture, this chair and table set will for sure add the same Parisian vibe to your balcony or patio. Just make sure to add a lovely vase of fresh flowers on top and it will look perfect!
