This gorgeous home in the hills outside Los Angeles features a gorgeous mix of vintage French and Scandinavian furniture, creating a beautiful retreat from the hustle of LA life. The owners of this home took out several walls, along with some less-than-stellar green carpet, and opened up the kitchen to create a lofty and spacious home. Create your own calm, white oasis using some of our favorite french-inspired brands, Zentique and Eloquence.

We’ll admit we swoon over well executed French inspired décor, but this modernized take on Parisian glam has us saying “oh la la, c’est magnifique!” With a directive to bring some French spirit to a Vancouver condo project and to just “go for it”, Peter Wilds of The Cross Décor & Design artfully weaves dramatic pops of hot pink throughout the space. Mixing florals and patterns with elegant white furnishings keeps the space open and inviting, but each room has its own dramatic couture moment. Which wows you the most – the flair of the pink chair, the glitter of a chic chandelier or the siren lure of the shimmering aqua wallpaper in the bedroom?

Authentic vintage finds were once the culmination of serious scouring and restoration efforts or a lucky inheritance. Our new One of a Kind collection of French and European style antiques changes all that, offering the time worn look and feel of furniture passed down through the years. Thoughtfully restored to their former glory, tables and mirrors boast decorative carvings, gilding and distressed patina finishes, while arm chairs, sofas and settees are clothed in burlap backings, original blue velvet or newly upholstered neutrals. Long live the relatives, your next heirloom can be found in this treasure trove.

Express Your Style: Live It, Wear It

Express your style: Live it, wear itWho can pass up classics with a romantic, modernized twist? Certainly not us, and we’re torn between which captivates us more, the interior or the outfit. Aidan Gray is masterful at creating furniture and decor with French élan and historical details that are tweaked ever so slightly, here using quirky printed word upholstery. But the traditional leather riding boot with ruffled accents had us at hello. Paired with this season’s hot skinny jeans, a cozy wrap cardigan and embossed python bag, you’ll be ready for fall weather AND for the compliments to come flying in. Instant modern chic.

Oh My – But You Are A Pretty Piece Of Furniture

European Classics

And such character too! Is this some treasured antique? A find from recent European travels? For everyone who craves home furnishings inspired by the classics (with a little twist), we are thrilled to introduce our new European Classics collection of furniture, lamps and accessories. The styling? We like to think of it as classic with a few quirks thrown in. You?Äôll find traditional Swedish, French and Italian design details, but the results are anything but tired and boring. The finishes are richly layered and textured, aged and antiqued in a stunning selection of colors and effects, often accented with painted details. Most pieces are hand built from mahogany, and because this is an eco-sensitive modern line, the artisan is committed to a “1 for 1″ replanting program that replaces every tree used to produce each product. How cool and green is that? What we really love is how seamlessly any of these items works with a wide range of decorating styles, from quiet and sophisticated to eclectically colorful. Check out all the European Classics offerings and get inspired!

Chandler Chair ?Äì A Classic Pedigree With An Updated Twist

Chandler Chair
A little historical referencing plus a modern update equals one very captivating chair. The Chandler Chair has the graceful lines of a Berg?®re chair with curved cabriole legs, carved wood detailing and a gently arched back. But it is anything but stuffy and old world. Upholstered in a mix of creamy linen and textured burlap, it?Äôs like a great antiquing day find that your craftiest, most clever design buff friend gave a makeover to. The burlap makes it not too precious and perfect, while small nailhead trim and a rustic wood finish give it just the right touch of updated sass. We love the way this piece can slip seamlessly into almost any d?©cor as well. Paired with the subdued colors and elegance of aubusson pillows and rugs, it takes on a traditional look, while refined silk pillow accents and clean lined, contemporary furniture achieves an air of modern luxe. Or go wild pairing this chair with your favorite funky finds for an eclectic look that defies categorization. Whatever your design style, the Chandler Chair adds a touch of European class with a modern twist to your decor.
