When we think of Parisian apartments we think of elegant old-world buildings with crown molding, floor to ceiling windows, and Louis XVI furniture. Whether you live in a Boston townhouse or an old Victorian home, you can get the look of a Parisian pied-a-terre with traditional French linens, toiles, and damasks. For a fresh take on the classic French textiles, choose colorful pastel patterns to offset the neutral linens. Or decorate your home with neutral beige, tan, and sage green colors for a refined contemporary look.

Linen & Sage: A French Study
A painted mural gives this city apartment bucolic charm. Wingback chairs upholstered in an intricate light sage damask enhance the warm sepia tones of the walls and antique wooden furniture. Hang full spun linen curtains to diffuse natural light and give a contemporary edge to the space.
