Parisian chic is a unique and ephemeral thing that is super difficult to recreate: while being very refined, it’s very effortless. Parisian homes tend to be eclectic and casual but always with a sophisticated feel, such spaces never go out of style and they are totally loved. How to recreate this unique flavor at home? There are some elements that are characteristic of Parisian chic and if you incorporate them, you’ll get a space of such kind.
If you want to create a truly Parisian room, white walls are a critical element. The combination of high ceilings — if you have them — and all-white walls make the space feel light, airy and classic, no matter what else is in the room. Such a combo will set the right tone in the space.

A classic element for a Parisian living room is decorative molding, both large and small. These can be included wherever you like: crowning the walls, above the baseboards, around the fireplace or on the ceiling. The point is to dress up the walls in a neutral way that adds character and doesn’t limit the decorating potential. Whether or not you use moldings on the ceiling, a ceiling medallion is the ideal accent for highlighting another must-have element on the list: a chandelier! The moldings you choose can be straight and streamlined, or more ornate, whatever fits your personal style.

As mentioned above, a sophisticated chandelier is a must for a Parisian chic living room, it will not only add a refined feel but will also balance the room. If the furniture is modern and the room relies on other elements for an antique touch, a gorgeous vintage-inspired chandelier can flavor the room in the correct way. If the living room is dominated by older pieces of furniture, a more modern chandelier can make the space feel like the right French mix. If you are hesitating, choose crystal, with which you can never go wrong.
