“Tina has a soft spot for art, and art can be found throughout her personal space, along with some vibrant colorful accessories such as the beautiful vintage boucherouite rug. Tina loves to mix different era finds, from the 1920-30s to Danish design or mid-century American pieces.”
#Color #Textiles #EclecticStyle - just a few things Tina’s flat featured by #FrenchByDesign has!
From the bright colors to the quirky home accessories, it is clear that Tina’s style is the very definition of fun and eclectic! If you are interested in bringing this fun, cute style into your own apartment, here’s what I think you should consider doing.
Embrace color - This is probably the most fundamental tip I can give you so that you can replicate Tina’s vibrant style. Tina is not afraid of color what-so-ever! Splashes of color are literally all over her floor, bookshelves, and home furnishings. The reason Tina can pull off this vibrant color scheme is because her white walls and dark wood floors provide a solid backbone that can support the multitude of colors in her flat. So if you have white walls and a bare canvas to work with, not to worry, you’re on the right track to achieving Tina’s awesome home decor style. Just get your hands on some bold, colorful pieces and get a little color crazy in your home.
Give your floor some lovin’ - My favorite part of Tina’s flat is her boucherouite rug. That baby is absolutely stunning! It looks like a lush piece of art lying on her floor. From the texture to the colors, I adore everything about that rug. Fun fact about boucherouite rugs by Secret Berbère is that they originate from the mountains of Morocco! These “Berber” rugs are considered an art form and are very precious. Additionally, these rugs are very, very expensive. Not everyone is going to have the budget to have one of these beauties in their home. If you can't have a boucherouite rug you can still give your floor some love by incorporating a vibrant rug that interests you—whether it has a chevron, floral, or textured print, just make sure to pick whichever colorful rug suits your fancy!
Mix n’ match furniture from different eras & styles - Tina knows a thing or two about elegantly combining pieces from different styles and eras. In Tina’s flat, you may notice that she takes the “best” of a certain style and time period and mixes these odd treasures together to beautifully create a happy, feminine look in her flat. Doing what Tina is doing is very common in eclectic spaces.
Use art to express yourself - According to French By Design, Tina loves art. If you’d like your space to mimic Tina’s flat, I’d suggest creatively mixing and matching art, quotes, and whatever catches your fancy in order to create a stunning and fun wall gallery.

I could go on and on about how to create a stunning wall gallery, but, for the sake of staying on topic, I’m going to leave this point and allow a few photos of wall galleries to inspire you instead!
Have fun with fabrics - This last tip is especially crucial if you are trying to replicate Tina’s fun and fresh style. Why? Because Tina chose floral prints that featured a vast array of textures—some embroidered, some quilted, and some that were screen printed. When choosing your home accessories, specifically pillows, opt for floral variations with fun, bright colors and different textures. The mix of patterns will add a lot of character and visual interest to your home decor.
