The French Style - What is it we love about what we call the French look? Is it the romance, the layering of patterns and textures, stripped wood, limestone tiles, cherry furniture, gorgeous ceramics or rough plastered walls? It is all these things that make the French style one of the most popular decorating styles still today. The French style unites all the regions of France: Provence region, Normandy and the Loire Valley. In prerevolutionary France, the King controlled everything including the decorative arts and down to what colors were used for the home. You can still see this today in the rich colors that are still popular throughout France. The style encompasses many layers with no desire to match anything, each item becomes a part of the supporting cast.
