The French are a clever folk who knows how to make the most of what they have. Applied to the decor, this talent is what gives their cabins distinctiveness and charm. Giving your home the warmth of a French cottage decor is easier and cheaper than you might think. French cottage interior design is more about creating a mood using simple materials and techniques than spending a lot of money on lavish details.
Many French cottages have thick plaster walls with a distinctive texture. You can create this look with drywall compound and paint or with paint alone. If you choose the heavy texture, trowel on the plasterboard connection in a sweeping, random pattern. When it dries, paint it rich red, ocher yellow, deep blue or green classic country French cottage decor colors.
If you prefer not to texture your walls, you can have a nice look of the RAG rolling walls to achieve a faux plaster or plaster effect. This technique will take someone to experiment, try it on old boards or pieces of sheet rock until you get the look you want. Apply a creamy beige undercoat. When it dries, start rag rolling with one of the deep saturated colors. Make sure the walls have a marbled, aged look with darker and brighter areas. Another feature of the French cottage decor is a lively blend of coordinating prints.
