French Country Decorating Theme

Bring home the romance of Provence with Balsam Hill’s French Country collection. Lend a touch of rustic elegance to your spaces with decorations that feature exquisite designs and textures.

What is a French country style home?

The French Country decorating theme combines understated elegance with rustic charm. It features soft hues and nature-inspired details, especially flowers from the idyllic French countryside like lavender, poppies, and lilies. The theme is characterised by a subtle colour scheme, antique-style furnishings, and wood and stone surfaces.

What colours are used in French country décor?

Pastel and natural hues make up its colour palette paired with natural or whitewashed wood. Balsam Hill’s French Country collection includes an assortment of baubles and festive décor in champagne and ivory. These soft shades are complemented with subtle embellishments that stand out against with the vibrant foliage of our artificial christmas trees and greenery.

How do you decorate with a French country Christmas theme?

Incorporate this timeless motif into your Christmas display with Balsam Hill’s French Country Christmas collection. Follow these tips to achieve a signature French country style:

  1. Choose a realistic artificial Christmas tree with a classic look.

    Recreate a winter wonderland indoors with a lifelike artificial Christmas tree. Choose replicas of evergreens like fir and spruce from our selection of premium artificial trees. They are expertly crafted with injection-moulded PE needles for realism and classic PVC needles for a lush profile. Add warmth to your display by choosing from pre-lit christmas trees in a variety of lighting options. 

  2. Mix in vintage-style baubles.

    Adorn your Christmas tree with vintage French décor and handcrafted glass baubles from Balsam Hill. For a sophisticated finish, use sheer gold ribbons and a classic bouquet tree topper. Extend your theme to your living area by using these trimmings as tabletop accents.

  3. Play with fringes and fur.

    Consider fringed tree skirts or ones made from faux fur and embellished with sequins. An elegant tree skirt will give your display a polished finish and serve as a picture-perfect background for presents.

  4. Add touches of greenery.

    Spruce up tabletops, mantels, and other bare spaces with decorations inspired by nature’s delicate beauty. Find the perfect faux wreath and garland from Balsam Hill’s vibrant collections. We offer pre-decorated greenery with rustic elements like pinecones, twigs, and berries. Some pieces include hints of sparkle from gold, champagne, and pearl-hued baubles. These accents will fit right into your French country decorating theme.

  5. Set the mood with candles and lanterns.

    Complete your French country decorating theme with enchanting lights. Balsam Hill’s flameless candles are designed to enhance the ambience of your spaces without the mess of dripping wax or the hazard of an open flame. For a romantic flair, set outdoor spaces aglow with vintage-style lanterns. Line them up along porch steps and walkways to create a charming scene at night.
