The main feature of Provence is its color scheme. This style is characterized by calm tones, which are peace, warmth and comfort.

As already stipulated in this style is used mainly natural materials, especially for walls and floors.
Wallpaper on the walls, laminate and linoleum on the floor - a taboo (not to be so categorical, say that they are undesirable), the focus on the rough plaster walls, wooden beams on the ceilings, and in the interior of the stone used as a floor coverage.
Clearly, this is the perfect design provansalnoy kitchen and so it can be arranged in a country house, but difficult to implement in a city apartment. In this case, the wall can impose stone or ceramic masonry or simulate it with tiles.
The ceiling can be painted in white or try to implement ideas with wooden beams, although it may reduce the area room, half a floor covered with ceramic tiles, which would resemble natural stone, and the other half natural wooden planks.
