Old French Provence style decor is a reflection history, culture and the beauty of natural surroundings. Natural wood, old world stone, wrought iron and natural fabrics bring a Provence home to life. Provence style furnishings have a timeless quality about them that seems to take us back to a simpler time. This style blends chic French designs with rustic, natural materials to create a warm, relaxed and charming ambiance, perfect for gatherings of friends and family.
Old Provencal style decor calls for natural materials. Wooden beams on the ceiling, woven textiles and nature inspired furnishings and accessories celebrate elegance, simplicity and luxurious textures, like cotton, wool, natural stone, and brick. Colorful Provencal home decor fabrics reflect the landscape outside its doors with sunflower yellows, lavender, olive greens, blue seas, and brick reds.
Rooms in a old French Provence style feature a minimalist and even "cool" decor, because the Provence region is very hot and sunny, so the interiors tend to be a shady oasis from the sun. Even with the "cool" feeling in a Provencal home, it is always welcoming and comfortable. French Provencal Style is timeless and widely popular due to its warm colors, natural materials and charming relaxed appeal. This decor is as much at home in a small farmhouse as it is in a stately manor. To find Provence style furnishings for you home, take a look at Belle Maison's Old Provence collection.
