7 Ways To Bring A Touch Of France To Your Home

We may not be able to travel to France just yet, but that doesn’t mean we can’t bring a touch of France into our home.

  1. Watch a French movie - there are loads of French Movies on SBS world movies screening on TV and on SBS on Demand. Try this collection and of course the old-time favourite: Amelie.
  2. Bring out your favourite French Recipe books and cook up some traditional French meals.  Or grab a few of your favourite French cheeses and make a cheese platter and serve with French wine and crusty bread. We have some beautiful French cheeseboards in stock.
  3. Buy yourself a french gift. French Candles are an easy and economical way to evoke memories of France. Our French Cargo scented candles have been specially selected with essential oils from Grasse to bring a scent of France to your home.
  4. Decorate with Antique French books. Whether you read French or not, doesn’t matter. French Antique books will bring texture, history and warmth into a home with their aged leather patina and parched pages. Stack them in two’s or threes and display them on a coffee table or in your bookcase.
  5. Linen - Every French home has linen. Dress your bed, your table or your kitchen with beautiful French linen.
  6. French umbrella - as we are heading into winter, our Eiffel Tower French umbrella by Guy de Jean will remind you of Paris every time you use it.
  7. French furniture - now is the time to look for french pieces that you have been eyeing out. A french piece of furniture can transform a room. Whether its a French settee, or a French console, French pieces bring warmth and style to a home.

So there you have it.  Selected carefully, French decorating will last a lifetime. It is a style that never dates and brings texture and warmth into a room. Come and visit us at French Cargo for your French fix, we love to help you decorate your home.
