Adding French Farmhouse Style To Your Home


I have always been enamored with the casual elegance of French country or French farmhouse style.  A home can be centuries old or a loft in the city and take on French flair by carefully adding and editing. I love the look of softly muted colors, worn and rustic tones with layers of imperfection.  Today I'm sharing some of my favorite pieces to help it all come together and create a warm and welcoming design...


I shot this photo almost a year ago in the home of French artist Laurence Amelie. Her kitchen is rustic with a touch of elegance and is the essence of her true French farmhouse life. The dining table is long enough to fit many guests and family and is made of reclaimed wood. I've done a little "digging" and found a couple of new rustic wood tables that give the French farmhouse look that I truly love...
Round tables are practical for smaller rooms to grandiose parlors and something about the way that you face your guests invites conversation. You can find this particular table HERE and I would absolutely love to have this one in my home!
Another beauty, and reasonably priced at under $700 with free shipping! HERE is where you'll find it...
And finally I found this one, and I've been thinking about changing out my own dining table and this one is a top contender! Find it HERE...


And the chairs...as you can see this style is popular not only in an authentic French house in the country but in my own beach home. Timeless style crosses the globe and will be in style for years to come!


I've sourced a set of two that are similar to what we have and they are far less in cost than many out there. Find them HERE...


Hanging from the ceiling beams in this old French farmhouse is a trio of glitzy beaded chandeliers. Gorgeous and I love how the crystals juxtapose the rustic wood of the beams, the table and the chairs...



My own living room with a French chandelier and combined soft neutrals, mixed metals and glitz...


In another home that I had the pleasure of shooting in the French countryside I fell in love with this old wood chandelier! It holds candles, as with age it could not be rewired and is so full of charm...


This new chandelier is what I sourced in shopping the look. Find it HERE...


Mirrors are something not only practical and functional in French homes, but often decadent and over the top with carvings and details. The GORGEOUS mirror in this home is simply propped on top and is an antique that had been painted grey...


In my dining area I have a reproduction French style mirror and sourced a similar one that is priced at under $100 for you below...

Find it HERE...

I hope that you have a great weekend and don't forget to come back tomorrow for the Share It One More Time Inspiration Party!

You are amazing! Q: is there any way for you to let software developers know program needs to recognize subscribers and not ask them to subscribe at every visit ? It's a bit annoying.
Thx 😍

Hi Magda,
Thank you so much and for the input on the subscriber box. I'm going to look into changing the frequency of it. I know that it can be annoying as a blog reader myself, but it's somewhat necessary to have these days. Have a great weekend...
