Romantic Farmhouse Style and Decor by Brooke Giannetti
I'm hopeless.
I simply cannot get enough
lovely French farmhouse style or
romantic rustic farmhouse decor inspiration.
And since I am ever striving to create my
as a student of interior decorating farmqueen
Brooke Giannetti, I am posting more
of her work past and present for inspiration.

BTW.
Brooke posted this shot of pygmy goat Louise and assorted
Patina Farm chicks on IG this morning, captioning it:

"Louise met some new friends on the
playground and decided to have a sleepover."

Oh to be a Patina Farm chick!

Ha! Talk about rustic and romantic!

(If you're reading, Brooke...
I can't believe how huge they make
Louise look, and I restrained myself from
typing 'hoof trimming on FLEEK' on yer thread.)

How to achieve rustic and romantic farmhouse style
when you lack goats, chicks, and the physical farmhouse?

You need secret ingredients.

But not those secret ingredients.

1.
Incorporate antiques into the decor plan
that aren't just pretty to look at, but are
functional as well like this Swedish chest.

Make friends with gorgeous European textiles
like Belgian linen (which can double as a closet door!).

Think rustic, stripped down woods for tables
and floors and keep the finish natural rather than stained.

to be strictly feminine, this masculine bedroom

Wood floors warm up any space
