Adding the Final Touches to Your Home Remodeling Job? Consider French Revival | Arlington, VA

adding-the-final-touches-to-your-home-remodeling-job-consider-french-revival-arlington-vaWhen the home remodeling job is finished, and you are left with a beautiful new space to spend your time in, the job doesn't stop there. 

Sure, the walls are up, your old stuff is sitting at ready, but isn't it time that you change a few more things up? 

Decorating a home is just as integral to the look and feel as is the remodeling job. The style you choose matters to how the home functions in its aesthetic. 

So while we don't think that one style is ever better than another, we do think that French revival is elegant enough to suit your style. Here are some tips on decorating for the Francophile hidden inside you.

- Buckets designed for purposes other than Champagne set off a room's look, giving a rustic appearance without obvious overtones.

- Bring the bistro in by adding a simple set of table and chairs that scream patio dining. Take a look at the Left Bank on Paris, and you'll see why French Revival design is entering dining areas all over the U.S.

- Trunks and cases work well for hiding things away, but work just as well as focal pieces for design and room structure. Stack them with style, and add a lovely throw of cloth to bring in the Old World.

- Replace that old sofa or love seat with a new chaise lounge. The long-used seat works well in any room where relaxation is on the agenda, and lets your guests envy your refined taste.

- Bring in classic china for sophistication, and add a certain "je ne sais quas," as the French say, to your formal dining area. Quaint and pretty matching cups and saucers invite and delight when it's time for tea.

Redecorating a room after a remodel is like working with a blank slate. The world you imagine is up to you. The only limitation is how far you can dream.
