3. The Use Of Clay
Another material we often see in French styled estates is the vast use of clay. Pottery brings an old look to our modern homes instantly. Consider buying over-sized clay potting containers and line them up out side in a row. These large scale pots look great at the outside of an entry way, or in the entrance to a garden. Use them as a focal point in the middle of your flower garden for an architectural look. Use metal forms to create manicured bushes. Adding plants in the house with clay pots is a sure way of bringing that old world touch into your home. Paint and stencil your clay pots to customize your decor inside and outside. Rocks are quite popular and are used instead of extensive lawns in the countryside of France. Adding iron patio furniture outside looks great and also weathers terrific over the years.
