French bedroom designs are elegant, charming, and oh so refined. From the drapes to the bedding, it truly is one of the most refreshing design options you can choose. Here are some elements that you will most certainly want to consider and include in your design plans.
Give the bed plenty of attention and space. The bed should be set towards the center of the room and festooned with a large, ostentatious headboard that draws attention to the piece. To complete the bed space, be sure it is illuminated by a chandelier, wall sconces, or recessed lighting set with dimmer switches to help finish the romantic ambiance of the room.
Finally, be sure to utilize an abundance of crown molding and trim. This should be used to draw attention to the walls and ceiling as much as possible. Indeed, the patterns and details decorative moldings create is one of the key elements that makes French bedroom designs so unique and appealing.

The perfect backyard design can be difficult. While designers want to embrace nature, they don’t want the backyard to underwhelm or appear ignored. A modern backyard design offers a great way to bridge that gap. Here are some aspects of a modern backyard design that will work beautifully in any space:
- Natural materials: Modern design uses materials that already belong outside — wooden floors, bodies of water and neatly groomed plants are all great additions to a modern backyard.
- Open spaces: Yes, the backyard is already in the most open of spaces. However, a modern design won’t try to interfere with the ambiance. Large decks, open patios, and and see-through fencing (around a pool for example) all embrace and enhance the outdoor feeling.
- Bodies of water: Rectangular sunken pools fit perfectly into the modern aesthetic, as do sunken spas (using a deck made of natural materials). Waterfalls and ponds are also possible as long as they look simple and are designed with natural materials.
- Trees: Large trees can be worked into a modern design and lit for a dramatic yet strikingly natural effect.
