The cool thing about Provencal decor is that it allows you to restore the furniture yourself. This will also help you save a buck, first because you can reuse instead of buying, and second because you can do it yourself. Old furniture can be present in every room of the house. In the rooms you can use, for example, an antique headboard or a dressing table. Old wardrobes are also a good choice, but if you just want to give it a Provencal touch, choose one piece or another.
In the living room, use old coffee tables, sideboards or chairs. In the dining room, choose a rustic unfinished table with stools and chairs. The kitchen can also house the Provencal style in the cabinets and sink countertops. Already in the bathroom, count on the Provencal style in the closet, taps and mirrors, it will be amazing, believe me. The flowers also help to compose the Provencal style, especially the lavenders that are typical flowers of the region. However, the flowers do not need to be just in vase arrangements. You can use flowers in pillow prints, paintings and wallpaper, for example. With them, the romantic style of the decoration is guaranteed and gives a special touch to the environment.
The choice of colors directly interferes with the Provencal decoration, so it is very important to choose them carefully. In general, white is the basis of all decoration. It gives the air of lightness, delicacy and cleanliness to the environment in which it is used, typical of the style. To match the white, choose light and pastel shades from the blue, green and pink palette. These shades are classic in Provencal decor and can come from walls, furniture, upholstery and decorative objects.
The shades of pink and lilac accentuate the romanticism and the feminine side of the Provencal decoration, so if you want to get away from that idea, bet on the shades of blue. Baby and children’s rooms very well accept the Provencal proposal, as they necessarily need to be clearer and more neutral.
