Parisians are known for having a classic and chic fashion sense, and that impeccable French style is portrayed everywhere, even in the way they put together their own bedroom. A typical Parisian bedroom has lavish decorative items and classic features-from ornate moldings, high ceilings, white walls, iron bed frames, and herringbone oak floors, it’s no wonder we all dream about waking up in a French-themed bedroom! If you are looking to give your room a comfortable touch and chic style, then check out these Paris bedroom ideas that will inspire you to give your master bedroom or guest rooms a whole new look.

1. Neutral Color Palette With Statement Features

Can’t live in Paris? No problem! You can give your bedroom a chic style anyway. And one Paris bedroom idea starts with a neutral color palette. In this style, a Parisian-themed room usually has light colors like white or grey walls. These paint colors make a room look fresh and clean. Plus, the light shades give the style of the room a modern finish.

If the current color of the walls in your bedroom is bright and you want a change, consider going for a neutral color scheme instead.

Using neutrals is also a good idea because it is easy to play around with statement accents (like a gorgeous chandelier or beautiful chair) while maintaining the modern style of a room.

You can add themed decor like a playful bed cover, vibrant throw pillows, and chairs with bold statements if you want to add some punch and personality.

The white color of the walls and the natural wood tones of Abaksha’s design (pictured) gives the whole room a well-balanced look.

To make your room feel cozy, add an open shelf library near your bed. It is a simple yet unique way of creating a little reading nook in your bedroom. It will not only be a practical feature but one that you will look forward to looking at every day!

You don’t need to add mini Eiffel tower table lamps or French poodles to achieve a French look in your bedroom. Not only are they kind of cheesy, but they might make your room look like you’re trying too hard (if going for an authentic Parisian bedroom).

Instead, make your room look like a professional interior designer arranged it with vintage accessories like crystal chandeliers. It is a great way of creating an elegant focal point in your bedroom.

While you’re at it, add layers in the form of ceiling-to-floor curtains and luxe bedding for a polished and completed look.

2. Primary Blue

Get ready to say “au revoir” to your old bedroom design and say, “bonjour” to this dreamy bedroom inspo. Give your room a Paris theme look by dressing up your bed with white linen sheets, duvets, and pillowcases.

Add a pop of color to your white bed with a royal blue accent pillow. Match the pillows with blue and white floral curtains to make your bedroom look effortlessly chic.

If you do not have enough space in your bedroom to add side tables, put them on a sturdy floating shelf instead.

Bring your shelf to life with Paris room decor. And no, we don’t mean Eiffel tower knick-knacks!

Pretty dried flowers in a clear vase is a brilliant way of giving you a real feel of a Parisian bedroom. Pair the beautiful flowers with books and a tiny tray.

Keep in mind that you do not need to add lots of things to your shelf. Follow the philosophy of a Parisian décor expert by just putting in a few accessories.

You can use the space above the floating shelf as an accent wall. Make it a visually interesting part of your room by adding wall art above the shelf. Skip the romantic phrases in the French language and go for a beautiful oil painting of the Eiffel tower.

3. Vintage & Modern

If you love when antique and modern style collide, then I’m sure this third Paris bedroom idea has you thinking je t’aime!

If you want to combine different interior styles, this is one of the best Paris bedroom ideas to try. Interior designer, Emilie, masterfully combined vintage furniture and modern Paris decor.

She used a wooden side table chest (vintage) adorned with floral paintings to make a beautiful statement next to the bed. The Parisian designer also used a variety of textures. The crisp white textured duvet paired with a pale blue embroidered accent pillow is a beautiful way of effortlessly arranging a bed.

We also love how thorough the Parisian designer was with her bedroom decor idea. She coordinated the other floral pillow with the side table, which is a perfect shortcut for achieving a très chic bedroom.

This elegant Parisian bedroom idea proves that vases are not only for a coffee table. You can team up your bedside lamp with sculptural vases (modern), and it will look just as beautiful as it would in the living room.

A stacked crystal ball lamp adds to the modern feel in this room.

We are head over heels for Paris bedrooms. The porte-fenêtres (which means windowed doors) allow the perfect amount of natural light in the bedroom. Just picture yourself waking up to the pretty morning sun rays!

The use of neutral furniture and walls also creates the illusion of a spacious and bright room.

Abstract wall art and this globe pendant lend this room a modern touch.

5. Opulent Bedroom (Inspired by Jean-Louis Deniot)

Who best to learn how to decorate your bedroom like a Parisian than from Jean-Louis Deniot? This well-renowned interior designer has created a plethora of opulent and classic bedrooms. And this design exemplifies his creativeness.

It ticks off all of the right interior design boxes. The wall molding detailing gives the bedroom an instant luxurious feel. Plus, the wallpapers add an extra pinch of elegance to the room.

Deniot most likely used antique (and expensive) wall art to decorate the room. If that’s out of your budget, art replicas and ornate mirrors can be used instead.

The Versailles chest also lends a great Parisian feel to the bedroom. The bedroom design is finished with vintage accent chairs that are perfect for lounging on (and looking at).
