Do you like to hunt around, do you like universes that exude authenticity? And if you were inspired by Parisian bistros to decorate your kitchen under the sign of retro and conviviality? The room where you simmer your small dishes would undoubtedly become a place to live. Here's how to do it in 2 lessons.
To recreate a real brasserie decor, furnishing is a major step.

The key accessories of Parisian bistros
Impossible to do without some typical accessories to complete this bistro-style decor!

On the dresser, a panoply of pretty retro metal boxes hide cookies, tea and other delicacies, while we guess the storage of pasta, rice or sugar in a series of glass jars. Vichy textiles, king in the 1950s, must also be an integral part of the decor, on the tablecloth, the tea towels or the place mats. The final touch? An old-fashioned clock with its Roman numerals attached to the wall…
