Finding the right artwork is a key to the successful design of the Parisian apartment. "Paris" from Todd Williams is a good start, the Eiffel Tower, in regal form as it is the centerpiece of this wonder piece of art. The shades of this painting will go well against the white walls and bright colors of your Paris apartment.
Or with Gregory Gorham's "Paris Collage I" sweeping in the various iconic scenes from Paris. With this tasteful piece it can be a little taste of Paris in your own space, just in case you do not live in Paris, but you wish to design like you do.
Since, in keeping with the traditional white wall themes, choosing a frame for the artwork is key, depending on the other furniture in the space, you would tend to lean towards a black frame to contrast well with the pure white walls.
Often the hodgepodge that goes with the Parisian apartment design is the inspiration that make the design so popular. Flea markets and other resale shops bode well for the frugal shopper who wishes to adorn their apartment with Parisian flare. Adding a few carpets or rugs too, will augment the design of your room, and when matched with fine art on the walls it will bring the theme in order throughout the whole room.
