Say the word 'style' to anybody and one of the first things they will think of is 'Paris'.

So synonymous is the city with all things chic that we thought we'd take a look at a few of the ways that you can give your home a touch of Parisian elegance.

This room exemplifies the stereotypical Parisian interior space. High ceilings, soft neutral colours and an eye-watering amount of ornate decoration on the wall panelling and parquet patterned flooring all come together to communicate a message of urban glamour.

Whereas this room gives the Parisian archetype a more modern flavour. The gilt-edged coving has been whitewashed to maximise the natural light, and a host of choice artwork now takes the focus, along with the clean lines of the modernist furniture.

Black and white contrasts have increasingly become a central part of Parisian chic as illustrated by this relaxing and contemplative living room. The stylish black low-level furniture invites you to recline amongst the crisp and airy backdrop of black and white photography, soft white-washed wooden flooring and a striking red floral display to tie the room together.

And who wouldn't want to indulge themselves in this delightful Paris bathroom. With ornate metal bathtub fittings, marble flooring and an impressive collection of framed butterflies, the room radiates a heady blend of luxury, style and relaxation.

This living room draws upon the rich tradition of Parisian art. With its playful juxtaposition of classical sculpture, traditional leather armchairs, ramshackle book collection and a modernist space-pod chair, it really sets the room up as a place of free-thinking contemplation.

And finally, the Parisian home shouldn't have to be all crisp whites and high ceilings. This room takes a more compact and soft approach with its luxurious fabrics and rounded corners all thrown together with an expert touch, and complete with a knowing renaissance-styled portait on the wall!
