Parisian living rooms can bring elegance and sophistication to one of the most important rooms in your home! Parisian style living rooms tend to take one of two different approaches: they can be traditional and classic (reminiscent of France from centuries past, for example) or they can be modern and updated (think: mid-century modern, and warm hues).
Whatever the style, it’s clear that Parisians love to take inspiration from the past when designing their living rooms. They could easily opt for a vintage-style sofa to take center stage, and pair it with other pre-loved furniture that could have even been passed down through the family.
If you just want to get the Parisian vibe in your home without going full-blown vintage, then you’ll still find some charming ideas for decorating your home, too! Take a look at some of our favorite Parisian living room design and decor ideas below!
