Parisian Cafe Style Decorating
Characteristics of the French Country style kitchen - rustic, old and warm and very similar to the Tuscany style kitchen.
Warm earthy colors - sunny yellows, burnt rust, grass green and ocean blues – are all colors found in the French country kitchen design style.
Natural elements, wooden beams, textured walls, accented with decorative ceramic and pottery decorations, rooster accents, copper pots, and soft furnishings dressed in toile and vibrant red blue yellow colored fabrics. Add to the country farmhouse style living with large chunky wooden tables with ladder back chairs, table linens that reflect patterns from nature - leaves, florals or scenes from everyday life.
Display oils, vinegars, fresh fruit, vegetables, pasta and coffee in decorative containers as accessories. Toss in some grape accents for a little more French flavour.
The French country kitchen represents country living that is uniquely French.
Paris street cafe style with a full size mural, windows adorned with awnings, window planter boxes, hanging flower pots, terracotta pots filled with colorful plants, real or silk greenery climbing along the walls.
Accent the walls with novelty decor items - French style clocks, fun chalkboards, cafe menu, metal word hanging art, french sayings stenciled on the wall, french theme tapestry, cafe style prints or posters, food and coffee and don't forget the happy fat French waiter!.
Furnish your cafe with bistro table and chairs, wrought iron lighting and candles for ambience.

The French Cafe
If you love Paris, you love cafes. Journalist Boyer loves cafes, and with the practiced lens of photographer Eric Morin accompanying her, she ushers the privileged reader-viewer of their delightful collaboration on a spin around Paris, to other urban areas of France, and out to places in the French countryside, seeking cafes of particular distinction or charm. "For the price of a cup of coffee you can stay as long as you want" is the philosophy of cafes; and all the cafes Boyer and Morin feature simply beg to be patronized for hours on end. Her prose imparts a good history of French cafes and their sociological and cultural place; his photos of exteriors and interiors are beautifully evocative. A helpful directory for travelers is appended, listing "a hundred cafes of character in and around Paris and in the provinces of France, chosen for their decor, location or ambience."

Joie de Vivre: Simple French Style for Everyday Living
In Joie de Vivre, Robert Arbor, a Frenchman transplanted to New York City, explains the French philosophy on life and argues for its adoption by stressed Americans. In a funny way, this is sort of a self-help book for people who admire the French lifestyle, and for those who believe that good food is the secret to a happy life. The premise of the book is that you will find "domestic happiness" when you learn to enjoy the most mundane details of your everyday life: "It's about making time for family, growing some vegetables in your garden, chatting with the butcher, and cooking for your family and friends." Quality of life, explains Arbor, is only improved when your pillowcases smell like lavender, and you make your own hot chocolate.
French Country Kitchens: Authentic French Kitchen Design from Simple to Spectacular
beautiful celebration of France’s real-life kitchens, French style authority Linda Dannenberg invites us into dozens of kitchens that capture the spirit of their regions, carefully examining the design, the priorities of the owners, and the details—from color palettes to collectibles—that create inviting, functional, and personal spaces. You’ll visit a remarkable new “eighteenth-century” kitchen in the heart of Paris’s old garment district designed entirely with elements dating from the 1700s; an airy, open family kitchen in a Provençal house that was once a grain mill; a dramatic kitchen, bold in color and scale, in an elegant farmhouse in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence; a romantic country kitchen, illuminated by a Palladian-style window from an old abbey, in a welcoming village surrounded by the farmland of the Île-de France; and a casual Parisian space—once an atelier occupied by Pablo Picasso—featuring a kitchen with subtle, restrained mosaics.
