Decorating with a Paris Theme

Hey all, I was wondering if you could help me with my room problems. I'm 15 years old and I want to do a Paris theme for my room. I already have a bedspread that I found at so if you have any ideas for me please reply. Thanks lots.

What a great idea. Can you paint a version of the Eiffel tower behind your bed, so it looks like a headboard. If you are not too artistic, either use an overhead projector to project on the wall (borrow from school or church, maybe?) and perhaps some tin florist-type buckets with lots of silk flowers on or under a windowsill. Perhaps stencil some French words or phrases around the top of the walls like a border. What fun. (05/26/2004)

It depends what you think "Paris" is like. Left Bank arty theme? Art Nouveau - Alphonse Mucha posters - French art prints. Fine food and wine? Posters for cheeses, French bread, fine wines and champagne. Folie Bergere, can can dancers, Toulouse Lautrec, voluptuous rich silky draped throws, pillows and bed curtains. If the Eiffel Tower is on one wall everyone will get the idea.

If you like a Paris theme then consider using a parchment paper treatment for your walls. France is famous for it's poster art especially by Toulouse. Go to and look up his name or poster art and you can find fantastic prints really cheap.

Paris is also known for the Champs-Elyse, so consider adding as much white lighting as possible. Preferably in the form of Xmas lights. Making the Xmas lights into wall art in the shape of the Eiffel Tower would be a splendid and original piece as well. Good luck to you and let me know is you were looking to go more toward the Moulin Rouge direction and I'll see if I can't help you there. Good luck. (02/23/2005)

Decorating with a Paris Theme

Just cover your largest wall with a landscape of Paris that spreads from the top to the bottom leaving no wall left to see blank and put your bed in the centre with a bedside table at the side. With a table lamp: the base of the lamp can be of a Paris monument which can be made with papier mache which later can be painted for an artsy feel as art is associated with Paris. With the rest of the room keep to a deep red colour and add drapes flowing from and across your ceiling for the ultimate Paris feel. (08/26/2005)

I am also doing a Paris theme room and a good idea I think is to do three walls like a light pastel colour like pink, lilac, or even beige then have a feature like a portrait of the streets of Paris. (04/27/2007)

Paint the room red. You can get some nice posters of Paris and maybe make some Chanel and Eiffel Tower throw pillows. Then add dark coloured sheets and sheer curtains.

I suggest you go down the craft aisle and see what you can find. If your Mom doesn't want you doing much, these ideas will help bring Paris to your room.

  1. Paint old boxes in pink, white, and black. When you're done, you can use silver gel pen to draw on them.
  2. Buy some iron-on paper. This is paper that can transfer images from your computer printer to fabric, using an iron.

    Print these images through the following links, and iron them on to old pillows.

  3. Make a collage using a Paris travel magazine. All you need is glue and a little imagination.
Oh, and wait until you move to your new house. -The Pink Poodle (11/26/2007)

Decorating with a Paris Theme

Well I just finished my room and it was Paris themed. I didn't do the whole little kid and poodle thing. See my mom and dad are from Paris so I had a lot of help. Now I can help you. See I did my room pink and I have a black border.

Then take some Paris posters and put them up. I had a professional paint the Eiffel tower on my wall. I also had hat boxes which are very chic. Get Paris accessories. All mine came from Paris, but it's not hard to find accessories in the states.

Good luck. (01/04/2008)

Decorating with a Paris Theme

I am planning on doing a Paris theme for my new bedroom in my new house. So far, what I've come up with is three walls are going to be a light pink and an accent wall (behind the bed) will be gray. Behind the bed, there will be pictures of Paris, Parisians, and of course the Eiffel Tower. As a desk, I am going to buy a flat-surfaced round bistro table and two cafe-style chairs. On the wall beside the table, I will hang a cafe sign. I am also going to find some wood letters painted black spelling "Paris" and maybe some other French words. Hope this helped. (03/14/2008)

Decorating with a Paris Theme

How funny; I just bought bedding at for my daughter's Paris themed bedroom. Anyway, I am painting her walls a Tiffany blue, and then the bedding is the VS Pink/White with black piping. I also am throwing down a light pink rug. Instead of buying canvas prints, I used eBay to purchase the wall stencils; I got an Eiffel Tower, a girl walking a poodle, a little sign that says "Alina's Dressing Room" (and it's in the form of a dress). I also had the woman design a hall tree that I will put up and use tiny hooks and then hang a Tiffany bag, a tiny purse, a string of pearls and maybe a boa. I got a chandelier that is pink and has beads accenting it. I also just ordered a set of dress sachets and a set a purse sachets that I will hang throughout the room. (08/14/2008)

My mom just redid my bedroom as a Paris theme and I love it. We painted my bedroom pink and put fat silver stripes all over the 3/4 of the walls, ordered a set of white and black "Chandelier" bedding off of eBay and matched it with a light pink quilt, and replaced my daybed with a white Flokati rug.

In the spaces where we had not painted stripes, we painted silver diamond shapes on the walls and hung two silver fleur-de-lis's we got at Ballard Designs on the wall. I was also able to find two fun wall hangings at Home Goods that say "Create" and "Inspire" and give their definitions. It is not 100% finished yet, but I am so incredibly proud of what we have accomplished so far. Good luck. (09/22/2008)

Decorating with a Paris Theme

Bonjour. My mom is an interior designer and during the summer I go along with her and help her plan things. We just did a room that was a Parisian design, with an elegant and simple look. A little "Simple Paris". Anyway, the room was all white (carpet, walls). The bed was wrought iron with white bedspread that had a black trim and pink pillows of all different shades and sizes. The furniture was all white with wrought iron handles (included a dresser, desk, bookshelf, and nightstand). On the walls were mirrors, pictures of the girl and her friends (in black and white), and black and white pictures of the famous places in France. These pictures were all placed in pink frames to match the pillows. Lastly we added white drapes with pink accents and some fresh pink flowers (no roses). The room turned out absolutely gorgeous and the girl loved it. (07/09/2009)

I am new here, but I would love to be an interior decorator. Anyways, I had a great idea for a French bedroom deep red, and black for curtains and bedding almost like a Moulin Rouge theme; old perfume bottles, pearls, rich colors, elegant furniture, shoes, hats, (with boxes) gloves. There are so many things. (01/07/2010)
