The color palette of a French Provincial home is inspired by the summer countryside. Natural rustic wood is commonly paired with rod iron.  Warm golds, bright sun drenched yellows, earthly, foamy greens, dark hunter and soft sea tones are seen.  Rusty reds along side pink, lilac and lavender are signature colors . Faded blue, dull grays and vivid blacks interpose the bright colors seen in the French Country style.
