This soothing cocktail epitomises elegance which is meant to be slowly sipped while relaxing and listening to blues songs in smoky bars in France. French Connection is seeing a huge revival as the trend for taking a nightcap is once again being popular. It's made from cognac and Amaretto liqueur to produce a warming drink which is not too sweet, just mellow. The Amaretto liqueur gives the cocktail a bouquet which is smooth and relaxing. No garnish is required as the simplicity of this cocktail is the hallmark of its refinement and elegance. You can use the mellow amber colour to create a soothing ambience which has hints of chic French style to add a touch of refined elegance to your home. In brief: Flooring: The natural warmth of mid-tone brown wooden flooring is ideal, use a variety of rugs to create a warming atmosphere. If you prefer to have carpets then opt for those which leave a border of wooden flooring exposed to create a refined and elegant look. Walls: Patterned wallpapers are in-vogue this season. Floral blooms would be ideal for lounges suing rich golds, mellow yellows along with autumnal reds and faded browns. Use ivory or cream for paintwork to give the room elegance. If you're going to paint your walls then chose one of the autumnal colours as an accent to compliment cream. Windows: Make your own full length curtains by choosing curtain fabrics online which coordinate with your accent colour. Add a touch of French flair by using bobble trim and matching tie-backs. Voile panels can also be used either as the sole window dressing and hung from unpretentious curtain rails or to add a softer and gentle look in front of wooden blinds which coordinate with the colour of your wooden flooring. Accessories: Cushions and throws are an ideal way to get the colours without having to buy new furniture. Cheap rugs in rich autumnal colours will look stunning against cream or beige carpets. A coffee table situated nearby will enable you to sip your French Connection while relaxing!
