If you read the views of interior designers in any of the lifestyle magazines, you will find that most of them recommend against the use of bright colors on the exteriors of the house. According to them, toned-down colors are ideal for this purpose, as they ensure that the house does not stand out from the rest of the houses in the neighborhood. If you believe in the same philosophy, then while selecting the colors, see to it that they are of a lighter shade.
All the wooden things have to be painted in darker shades such as purple brown and hunter's green. From the period 1880 to 1890, the wooden windows, doors, and stairs were painted in white color, to provide the houses, an airy and relaxed feel. Hence, another idea is to paint such wooden things in your house in white, and enhance its impact by using some artificial lighting near them.
French country decorating style mostly relies on natural light for illumination purpose. The whole idea of illumination is to create a cozy and warm ambiance.
