I’d class french interior style as minimal but in a way that is small amounts of very good quality objects, including antiques. Neutral but classy. This also applies to fashion. Antique being vintage Levi’s, bootcut.

I think part of the French casual-cool is the minimalism that is so GOOD. For the put-away types, treat them like glad rags, in a handsome wardrobe.
And when it comes to the actual kitchen, … Pardon, Kitchenette. A shit white oven is essential, or at least a white range-style. Go for, domestic goddess in training. Quaint.
And some French style touches, I know the teal velvet isn’t so minimal but that is my take on it. The glass pendant I’d place in a small bathroom, or kitchen French patisserie style. I think the Deco style also goes well, for example in these pendant lights(5).
