It all seems far away from our busy urban lives, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a dose of Provence in our own living rooms.
Another thing to be seen in every French country living room is contrast, especially in reference to textures. For instance, you will see rough and dark wooden beams opposing a pale ceiling, or a truly Provincial fabric full of colors placed on a neutral seating arrangement.
French designers agree that it is important to work with natural materials. This makes their seemingly simple work memorable, as there is enough texture all around to complement the lack of bold colors.
To have an idea of how this works, think of a rough stained/painted plaster wall with a hefty beam ceiling, both in a room where most of the furniture is amazingly and carved in detail. The floors are most of the time made of stone, and neatly covered with cotton and wool rugs.
