Keep these tips in mind:

Choose a relaxing color palette.

A relaxing color palette can create a simple yet picturesque room. Brighten up your space by using light but warm natural colors like yellows, creams, pastel blues and greens to mirror a classic Parisian style.

Add chic accessories.

It’s all in the accessories! Fill your home with handmade and one-of-a-kind antique fabrics like decorative plates or ornamental clocks for a chic vibe.

Utilize vintage furniture.

The Parisian style always has a certain ‘je ne sais quoi' (a pleasant quality that is hard to describe). Make your room unique and stylish by decorating it with vintage furniture. Use rustic and light pieces to match your room’s overall style.
