With a few simple updates you can easily recreate a French look in your home. Here is a selection of our favourite French-inspired interiors picks.

It might be a cliché but stripes are an easy way to add a French feel to your interiors. If you want to keep things simple opt for this striped cushion, £35 from the Great British Life Shop, to brighten up your sofa or bedding.

Entrance halls often get forgotten about so give this underused space some TLC and invest in a stylish rack. This wooden rack, £26.95 from Rigby & Mac, has a distressed look making it ideal for those favouring understated French style.

Transform your bedroom into a boudoir with this ornate hand-carved mirror, £337, part of the Provencal set of bedroom furniture from the French Bedroom Company.

Whether you want to fill them with fresh flowers or just display on an empty shelf, vases are useful decorative accessories. This jug, £24.95 from Love from Rosie, features a pretty floral design and would look perfectly at home in a kitchen or bathroom.

Choose elegant pieces of French-style furniture to create a chic look in your living room. White furniture with intricate detailing, such as this corner cabinet, £1,020 from the Great British Life Shop, sums up romantic French style.

The elegant shape and rich aubergine shade of this occasional chair, £245 from Alison at Home, make it a chic addition to your home. The chair, inspired by a classic Baroque design, will instantly add a flavour of France to your living room.
