2017 Trends to Watch: French Flair in the Bathroom

The New Year is the perfect time to give your bathroom a much-deserved facelift. This year, one of the upcoming trends to keep an eye on when it comes to bathroom remodeling ideas is based in French-inspired elegance. As France is rich with history and famed for its rolling countryside, this unique style is generally one of vintage design and country simplicity. Take a look at a few simple ways in which you can bring a French flourish to your—as the French say—salle de bains.

Try Traditional Color Combinations

Depending on the region of France you’re attempting to invoke with your remodel, there are a variety of classic color combinations that can help you complete the effect. For the warm, sun-drenched feel of southern France, opt for rich, spicy reds, buttery yellows and dusty violets. To elicit the feel of the milder northern regions, stick to pale blues, soft neutral greens and smooth pastel pinks. For a color combination that blends nicely into a modern home, try mixing browns and blues for a unique contrasting look. While planning your remodel, remember: in any truly French design, whites should be warm and creamy, bringing an aged, cozy feel to the room.

Employ Elegant, Soft Patterns

When it comes to elements like wallpapers, window dressings, rugs and shower curtains, think delicate and simplistic. Basic gingham fabrics and light, airy florals provide a fresh, delicate atmosphere, while bold colors and filigree designs make for a royal, upper-class aesthetic.

For a slightly more modern feel with a French twist, ditch the softness and choose fabrics with a high contrast design like a black-and-white toile and pair them with solid-colored accents (or, conversely, pair solid-colored textiles with high-contrast toile accents).

Go for Fancy

There’s nothing wrong with modeling your ideal bathroom design after the palace at Versailles. Bring a little luxury into your bathroom’s new look with rich colors and opulent accents. Touches of gold color in accessories, picture frames, switch plates and more can make even the smallest bathroom feel like part of a vast estate. If your bathroom has the space (particularly if it’s your home’s master bath), consider adding a small vanity table to amplify the lavish, graceful feel of the room.

Install French-Style Fixtures

When in doubt, opt for the antique look. Even in 2017, the French are still suckers for the rich, historical aesthetic of vintage fixtures and furniture. From brass shower hardware with porcelain handles to genuine antique glass ceiling lamps, these small but significant changes can take a bathroom back in time. Freestanding bathtubs in particular make perfect additions to a vintage-styled French bathrooms—particularly the traditional clawfoot bathtub.

Bring the Countryside Indoors

Add bits and pieces of additional European flair by opting for bathroom décor and toiletries that evoke the famous French countryside. Towels featuring embroidered poppies, French-language word art on a rustic, distressed wood background or even a simple lavender-scented hand soap can be the little details that make all the difference.
