French modern leather club chairs sit side by side in this intimate art deco study. Fine accessories and art are encased in a Berkowitz-designed Madagascar ebony and black lacquer built-in. The X-style mullions on the glass doors complement the inlaid black X design on the lower cabinet doors, while the custom velvet ottoman and area rug anchor the seating area.
In the dining room, Chip and Joanna, hosts of HGTV's Fixer Upper, brought in a new, modern chandelier, dining table and chairs. To update the space, they replaced the old wallpaper with beige paint, creating continuity between this space and the rest of the house. Above the buffet, an old window frame has had its panes replaced with mirrors to add light and color in the space, while silver candlesticks and green topiaries add a French Country touch.
This light and bright kitchen features modern stainless steel appliances and white wooden cabinets paired with country accents, like a farmhouse sink and natural wood plank ceiling. Two glass pendant lights hang above a granite top kitchen island, while wooden stools provide a spot for casual dining.
Since this home is located in Los Angeles, it only makes sense to have French doors that can be opened to fresh air and sunlight at a moment's notice. In the library, two brown leather armchairs and a cream-colored seat soak up the views, with an oversized red area rug pulling in some additional warmth.
The master bedroom was lacking in ambient light, so its existing ceiling fan was taken down and replaced with a wood and iron French chandelier. French chandeliers usually evoke a feeling of femininity, but due to its black painted finish, the chandelier used in this master bedroom takes on a more gender-neutral appearance. For modern flair, globe bulbs were used rather than standard flame bulbs.
Working from home can be a bit dreary if you're tucked away in a plain box of a room. French doors offer privacy, let the sun shine in, close off messy areas and give you a different scene to rest your eyes on.
A blue and yellow color palette with antique furniture gives this traditional master bedroom a French country look as well. Modern white chandelier offsets the classic fixtures and is an unexpected touch.
A room designed by Siham Mazouz, author of “How the French Live,” includes a Moroccan carved wooden door that was turned into a table with industrial-style casters, along with two green sofas and various art.
