    Previously it was believed that the French style can only be used in summer cottages and country cottages. This is not true. Modern Provence has no restrictions and is increasingly found in city apartments.

    An office in most homes has become a must. It not only works, but also holds business meetings.

    Important! The office should be not only comfortable, but also functional, so that you can deal with serious issues. It is the Provence style that will help create a comfortable place even from a small room.

    The subtleties of French Provence

    This is a somewhat simple, archaic and without pretentiousness style that emphasizes the closeness of man to nature. Distinctive features of the Provence style cabinet are:

    • stylization of furniture and semi-antique floor;
    • light color of the walls;
    • the use of natural stone and wood;
    • the presence of forged things;
    • ceramic tiles for floors and walls should have a simple ornament.
    • Cabinet with shelves

      Sometimes, to give the house a Provencal spirit, it is enough to put a wicker basket with dried flowers and a few decorative elements. How the Provence-style cabinet looks on the site's photo, you can see perfectly.

        Details of finishing works

        Some nuances should be envisaged when finishing the cabinet

        1. Wall decoration. The French build their homes from bricks. It is welcome when the contours of the masonry are visible through the plaster. Therefore, one wall in the room is allowed to be decorated with a material imitating such masonry. Lining is also suitable with further painting in warm colors. You can paste over the walls with wallpaper with a delicate pattern
        2. Floor repair. It is considered a classic option for laying out natural stone slabs, usually terracotta in color. But this material is very expensive, and the installation is difficult. You can use ceramic tiles or porcelain stoneware imitating the structure of a stone. Budget option - laying beige laminate
        3. Ceiling decoration. They are decorated with beams, the color of which must certainly differ from the main background. Possible monochrome ceiling and contrasting design. The main surface is covered with beige or white paint. You can use textured plaster, stucco molding from polyethylene urethane tiles. Painting on plaster is allowed, but stickers cannot be combined with this style.
        4. Provencal cabinet furniture

          Furniture is made from solid wood or veneer with aging effect. Absolutely all small interior details should look shabby, ancient. Slightly peeled paint, frayed handle - great Provence accents.

          The symbols of rural design are small vintage shelves, dressers that imitate antiquity.

          A Provence style cabinet should be roomy and comfortable. The emphasis needs to be placed on the table - this is the basis of the business space. It is advisable to pick up an antique, but you can also use a regular wooden one with cracks and chips. You need to supplement it with a comfortable half-chair. A simple chair won't do. You can buy a leather armchair, although it will be out of the traditional Provence, but it will look more appropriate.

          Advice! The workplace must be well lit. Therefore, the table should be near the window. If this is not possible, then auxiliary lighting devices will help.

          The cabinet can be furnished with fine wood furniture, but a cheaper option is also suitable - veneered wood, laminated MDF. Can be purchased as a set. All items are located along one wall.

          Shelves in the office in Provence style - a required detail. There should not be many of them, otherwise the space will be cluttered. In a small room, it is advisable to nail them to the walls. If there is enough space, then a glazed aged cabinet with shelves will look great.

          There must be racks in the office. Large folders, awards, framed certificates, photographs, various business souvenirs can be put on them.

          Accessories for the Provencal cabinet

          Office decoration should be discreet. Ordinary trinkets won't work. Metal photo frames, wooden coasters for letters and stationery, bronze pens and vases will look good.

          The business interior can be diluted with typical Provencal accessories: paperweights with bright floral patterns, a flip-flop or wall calendar on aged paper. It is these accessories that will bring charm that is usually lacking on a desk.

          Table lamps with lampshades decorated with embroidery, ceramic or clay candlesticks, wall sconces can favorably accentuate the decoration of the office. Walls are decorated with posters, paintings or photographs in wooden frames, preferably with miniature carvings. Heavy curtains without a pattern decorate windows.

          A massive and comfortable armchair, a sofa for visitors with soft upholstery, a floor lamp with a fabric shade - important details of the Provence study. A small tea table is placed in the reception area. It can be decorated with a crocheted napkin, as well as a regular lace tablecloth.

          If the cabinet needs to be given more solidity, then the style can be combined with the classic direction, choosing from it some suitable strict elements. Chairs with clear shapes are great. They do not violate the overall harmony of the design. The interior can be supplemented with a sofa with carved legs, on both sides of which floor lamps are placed. In such an office it will be convenient to both work and relax on the couch with a book.

          An excellent solution would be to place an active or decorative fireplace; a dim carpet located near the sofa would also be appropriate. A wicker basket is suitable for used papers.

          The magic of light

          Choosing the right lighting is very important. To do this, you must adhere to the following recommendations

          1. A chandelier should be modest, without luxury. It will be good if it is antique handmade.
          2. Sconces are allowed only forged or wooden, but rough forging in a cozy Provencal study is not allowed.
          3. Floristic motives should be on shades, floor lamps, table lamps, chandeliers.
          4. You can paint the lamps yourself. This will make the look of the office not only cozy, but also unique.
          5. A French-style cabinet is suitable for everyone who neglects unnecessary luxury, but appreciates peace, silence and honors traditions.
