French Country Home Decor, Artwork & Interior Design Accessories
Many years ago, Hal Kramer queried a famous, French interior designer as to what he thought was the most crucial element to French Country home décor.
The designer replied, je ne sais quoi. You ask me to explain something that cannot be adequately expressed in words alone.
You see, the home décor designer continued, the French have a saying: ‘Joie de vivre,’ which quite literally means the joy of life. Although the genuine expression of this keen emotion transcends all of life in France, its inspiration begins in the family home. Here is where you will find the natural essence of French Country décor.
To create the successful adaptation of this cozy lifestyle requires more than simply implementing the fundamental interior design mechanics of symmetrical patterns, repeated motifs, and soft pastel colours. French Country home decor requires the complex collaboration and cooperation between master of the house and professional interior decorator, diligently working together to infuse a residence with the unspoken inspiration and character of Provence.
To this end, the most essential element to French home decorating is what we call scale: the relationship, if you will, of one paired decorative accessory to another. This natural blend of art and style is what truly makes Country French home décor so warm and inviting. More concisely, it is the balanced combination of carefully chosen furnishings, including rough-hewn accent pieces and romantic, one-of-a-kind object d’art, which facilitates the creation of an ambiance as much at home in the sumptuous chateaux of Louis XVI as in a family cottage in the south of France.
Ahhh……What better way to draw in the cozy warmth of French Country living than by accessorizing with the sophisticated, yet casual, framed artwork of H. Hal Kramer Co.
