14 Parisian Apartment Decor Ideas to Create Your Dream Home
1. Neutral and Elegant
This Parisian-inspired apartment is so elegant yet still so cozy and inviting. Just look at the gorgeous crown molding and plaster ceiling medallions. Everything from the artwork to the fireplace and mirror is perfect for this space.
The forest green sofa and rust-colored ottomans provide plenty of space for seating while creating an intimate space. We just adore the sheer curtains hanging on those stunning balcony doors.
2. Modern and Natural
The tall ceilings in this apartment make this space feel so open and airy. While the décor is modern, the archway, curved windows and ornamented ceilings soften the space and make it feel chic.
The chandelier is simple yet ties the whole room together. The deep sofas have a minimalistic design with clean lines that complement the room. A simple coffee table, rug and tall curtains help make this space feel like home.
3. Rich and Moody
The soft lighting from the wall sconces and candles makes this space feel gorgeous. We love the sheer curtains and plants, which really complement the green walls and ceiling.
4. Artsy and Sophisticated
The diamond-patterned rug adds a modern but cozy touch to the space.
Don’t forget to add a pretty vase of flowers to the mantle to brighten up the space and add a pop of color.
5. Modern and Traditional
In this apartment living room, modern meets traditional. The charcoal wall color, black coffee table and matching accessories contrast nicely against the white ornate ceiling, beige sofa and stone fireplace.
The rectangular wall sconces align with the decorative wall panels and match the other beige accessories in the room.
We’re entranced by the tall glass doors, but even if you don’t have something like this in your space, you can still recreate this look to make a cozy living room that you’ll never want to leave.
6. Natural Earthy Tones
Parisian apartment decor isn’t always ornate and extravagant. This little cozy space of an apartment has tall ceilings, an arched doorway and stunning lantern ceiling lights.
7. Minimalist at Heart
French decor always feels effortless, and this apartment is proof of that. The messy bed somehow still looks so inviting. We love how they’ve put plants around the bed to add natural elements. The big open windows allow in so much natural sunlight.
You can create a similar look in your apartment bedroom even without the large windows. Opt for a low bed frame and invest in some houseplants that will thrive in your space. Oh, and don’t worry about making the bed in the morning!
You could also add flexible crown molding trim to make the space look fancier.
8. Modern Baroque
It’s impossible to find a French-inspired apartment that doesn’t have an orange mirror somewhere.
In this cozy living room, the ornate rectangular mirror sits just atop the mantle to really brighten up the room.
Rather than a large and bulky sofa, they’ve chosen to add modern chairs. The wooden coffee table matches the beige rug and other furniture in the room. The chairs are positioned to encourage conversation – perfect for entertaining.
The smartly placed modern art is a nice contrast against the ornate, baroque-style wall panels. And we love the sofa table near the fireplace, which has a gorgeous lamp that will add soft lighting at night.
9. Cream White Wall Bliss
We get a peek into two main rooms in this pin, including someone’s living room and what we can only assume is an office. The mantle of the fireplace stands out to us the most and is an elegant addition if your space does have a fireplace.
You’ll also notice the massive mirror above the fireplace.
Moving into the office, you’ll notice there’s a rustic lamp on the table and a bookcase overflowing with books behind the person’s desk chair. Books help represent your likes and hobbies, and they add a bit of sophistication to the space.
Place a small pillow on the bookcase and you have completed this look.
10. Modern Parisian Apartment Décor
A lot is going on in this apartment, but it all works perfectly together to offer a beautiful, upscale space. You can’t ignore the room’s appeal, which looks like a professional designer stepped in to help with the arrangement.
The room has a few pieces that really stand out from the crowd, starting with the lovely mirror that reflects the space and makes it feel much larger than it is. We love this antique silver mirror that has a Victorian accent.
Moving to the right of the mirror, you’ll notice:
- A large potted plant is positioned just right to show the green of the leaves in the mirror.
- Pedestals in the corner with vases on them.
- Low-profile couch that sits on the floor. This modular couch is a great option.
- Large, geometric tables that you can place books on or a cup of coffee.
- A hanging, circular light that sits in the middle of the room.
Parisian style oozes out of this room and can be copied to make it all your own.
11. Small Bohemian Apartment
Parisian apartment décor + boho? Pure bliss. You’ll love this look with the distressed cabinet, flowers and beautiful artwork taking center stage. You’ll also find a chair with a massive cushion and curtains on the window.
Sadly, we cannot see the bed in this pin, but we imagine that it’s covered in pillows because that’s the style this year.
Parisians love their massive array of pillows, especially with multi-color options, because they add a bit of punch to the color scheme. You’ll also find many beds covered with knitted throw blankets, which are oh-so comfortable and really make the look.
12. Simple, Chic Parisian Idea
Simple and chic, you can transform most bedrooms into something similar to this pin. You’ll notice the walls are white and bare, which means you’ll save on the décor. You can go crazy and add a chandelier to your space
Curtains on the windows are perfectly Parisian, but it’s the bed that stands out.
The bed has a knitted blanket on it, hanging off the edge of the bed. Moving up to the top, you’ll find numerous square pillows of multiple colors. Of course, flowers are on the nightstand and there’s an adorable orange chair in the corner to add contrast to the space.
13. Parisian Interior With Massive Windows
Parisian apartment décor doesn’t get much more elegant than this. You’ll find a large sofa in the back with an assortment of pillows that match perfectly with white, brown and cream colors. The coffee table is an interesting piece because it has two large cushions that you can sit on or place a few books.
A large white flower bouquet on the table completes the look.
But it’s really the massive windows that scream “Parisian” with this design. The windows are not easy to replicate, but you can position your couch next to the largest window that you have to recreate the look.
14. Heritage Parisien
Imagine kicking your feet back on the comfy white or crème barrel chair. Wayfair has one of these chairs that is super cute and fits this idea perfectly. You’ll need to have a cute table, books, a candle and a vase with flowers.
You can opt for fake flowers if you don’t want to deal with the watering or care.
Moving on to the walls, you’ll notice two main things stand out:
- Large wall mirror that makes the space seem much bigger
- Massive face painting with some abstract colors in the back
And if you have the budget for it, the piano will complete the look. Local stores are best for a true baby grand piano, but you can find a few on Amazon that are digital and will do the trick.
