There’s no city like Paris. Aside from the towering beauty of the Eiffel Tower, the city is known for its quaint cafes, chic boutiques, and destinations that are surely included in most travel bucket lists. If you dream of conquering the city of Paris soon or your wish to have a dainty space that showcases comfort and elegance, we’ve got picks and color options that may just inspire you to turn it into reality. Achieve a sweet haven with these must-haves:

Set the tone of your space with light colors and pops of vibrant hues. Visit the nearest hardware store and check different swatches that highlight the colors bronze, pink, green, light yellow, and light blue.


1. Start with baby steps by purchasing cushion covers that scream comfort and lazy afternoons. Mix and match colors that complement your home’s overall palette. Keep it flexible by settling for neutrals.

2. Feel like you’re dining in a café and bring the outdoors in by displaying indoor plants. Place them in delicate vases for a sophisticated appeal.

3. Why settle for an ordinary table when you can have a piece that can be the center of attraction? A standout piece will surely captivate guests.

4. Pick a mirror that doubles as wall accent. It can liven up a blank wall while giving you an instant primp corner. Reflective surfaces can also give an illusion of a bigger space.
