Today I wanted to share some French Country Design elements. When building and/or decorating a home, one of the first things to consider is color palette. In French Country design the colors are softer. Choose colors that are found in nature, think Provence. For example, you can use soft blues and greens like the fields, sea and sky. There’s also the yellow, red and gold palette taken from the colors of french flowers or soft lavenders/blues, inspired by the lavender fields. I have chosen to go with the bluish/green tones – which will be soft aqua shades, combined with whites/creams/neutrals and brown shades.
I found this really cool tool by Sherwin Williams called…
Let’s Chip It
You can add it to your toolbar and whenever you see an image that inspires you, just click on the chip it icon and scroll over the picture. It will create a paint chipcard for you from that image like I’m showing here below. You can see the color names which makes it easy to take to their store and select those colors.
So for my color scheme – I would select colors more on the left.
