Francophile Style: French Decor

An effortlessly cool sense of history and color permeate French style. In celebration of Bastille Day this Sunday, July 14th, here are 10 inspiring rooms en France.

TOP ROW
1. Check out the floors and architectural details in this amazing Paris apartment (seen on Design*Sponge) and try not to be really jealous.
2. In this centuries-old farmhouse, spotted on Elle Decor, a jade-colored door is a refreshing counterpoint to beautifully rustic walls, ceiling, and floors.
3. A fun, unexpected neon staircase punctuates this Parisian duplex (from Marie Claire Maison).
4. An unusual and rich color palette of green, pale pink, and teal makes a unique bedroom (as seen on Design*Sponge). 
5. These casement windows, which let in plenty of fresh air, are a classic feature in French homes. (Click here to see the full tour on Apartment Therapy.)

6. With clean lines, rich linens in a fairly monochromatic color palette, and an iconic floor lamp, this bedroom, spotted on Marie Claire Maison, is approachably chic.
7. This countryside home is simple and bright and natural without being overly rustic. (Click here to see the full tour.)
8. Painting the lower half of this wall black anchors a beautifully bright, neutral living room from the Marion House Book.
9.  There are lots of cool parts to this eat-in kitchen, spotted on Marie Claire Maison, but I mostly love the magenta painted backsplash. 
10. Check out the color combination and those windows! (House tour from Freunde von Freunden.)
