French farmhouse style moments in 31 Beautiful French Farmhouse Style Moments {Decor Inspiration} are a testament to what hard work and a dream to own a country home in France can bring to fruition.

8 Secrets to More Authentic French Farmhouse Decor

“Why are you calling them secrets and what makes you an expert anyway?” Maybe they aren’t secrets outside of mainstream America, but one peek around Pinterest, and it would seem there are endless inauthentic attempts. The look can fall flat without understanding what undergirds this design style and makes it so charming in the first place.

French Farmhouse Design Inspiration…hello lovely indeed (Vivi et Margot.)

1. Bear in mind where French Farmhouse style originates.

French farmhouse style originates from the lovely landscape of rural France with its hills and valleys. If you can’t travel to the south of France, do spend time online or at the library studying the region to better understand the romance and allure.

2. Genius Mix Masters

There is often a sense of refinement in French Country homes where a mix of old and new feels balanced and sensible, yet also soulful and interesting. Old World charm and collected antiques and family treasures impart a sense of rich character.

3. Mismatch Magnifique

Plenty of Americans still opt for matching furniture sets that fall from favor after a few years. This would never do for a French farmhouse. The French country approach to furnishing a home is more relaxed, and the goal is a custom, harmonious, and also undone look that appears un-decorated and never overwrought.

4. Refreshingly frugal and functional

French farmhouse style is practical since home decor pieces tend to work in a variety of rooms and can be moved around to function flexibly. Since many furniture pieces are weathered, chunky, and not terribly delicate, pieces get better with age and use. They work hard no matter where they are put into service.

5. Honoring Nature

The French love their gardens and bring flowers inside to casually display them. Depending on the region, sunflowers, irises, and poppies are common blooms which flourish in the French countryside.

6. Distress is Not Distressing

Since French Country is a style which imparts a sense of age and tradition, scratches and rust as well as signs of wear are celebrated. Perfectly new painted finishes do not blend as well with antiques and vintage pieces. The same is true for rugs. The French don’t shop for a new rug because of fading or fraying since they regard the look attractive. It is common practice to use something until it is threadbare and beyond useful. Distress and wear resulting from use are honored and exalted in French Country design.

7. Patience, mes amis! 

The French seem always to take a decidedly patient, unhurried, and thoughtful as well as not-too-serious approach to home decor. It is a look which unfolds over time as family heirlooms are passed down through generations.

The French countryside in summer is hard to beat..hello lovely indeed (Vivi et Margot.)

8. Trends? Look the other way

Rather than following trends and redecorating every decade, the French understand timeless beauty and prefer timeworn finishes, patina, and character from age. It’s an elegant, sophisticated look which is never contrived or overthought.

How do the French accessorize in their French Country homes?

Houzz reports French Country home decor accents always have a purpose: “Rarely will accessories in a French country room be purely decorative. They usually have an undertone of usefulness: wall-hung plates that can be pulled down for service, jugs and jars that house kitchen staples, baskets that corral plump produce from the garden. Open shelving is a natural partner for this look — everyday items enjoy pride of place rather than languishing behind cabinet doors.”

Paint colors for interiors throughout this French farmhouse: FARROW & BALL.

Woodwork, doors, and beams: FARROW & BALL French Gray

Farrow & Ball French Grey #farrowandballfrenchgray #frenchgray #paintcolor
FARROW & BALL French Gray.A soothing green grey. French Gray is really much more green than grey, but characterfully flits between the two depending on the light and time of day. Taking inspiration from French design and wallpapers used in the 19th century, it creates the most relaxed of rooms. This soothing hue is perfect for exterior woodwork and a particular favourite for front doors in our matte Exterior Eggshell, or garden furniture where it sits seamlessly amongst the greenery.

Interior walls: FARROW & BALL Strong White 2001

Farrow & Ball Strong White. #farrowandballstrongwhite #strongwhite #paintcolor
FARROW & BALL Strong White 2001. A grey based white. This cool white is both strong by name and strong by nature. One of our Contemporary Neutrals, the subtle urban feel of its light grey undertones add a contemporary twist to period homes, while staying in keeping with modern properties. Pair with Skimming Stone, Elephant’s Breath and All White in any combination for an effortlessly cohesive scheme.

Ceilings: FARROW & BALL All White 2005

All White by Farrow and Ball. #farrowandballallwhite #allwhite #paintcolor
FARROW & BALL All White No. 2005. A totally pure white All White is exactly what it says! Unusually, it contains no other pigment except for white, creating the softest most sympathetic colour without the colder blue undertones of a brilliant white. One of our Contemporary Neutrals, All White pairs seamlessly with Skimming Stone and Strong White for a warm scheme with a slight edge. For a clean and almost graphic finish, contrast with fresh, strong tones like Pitch Black and St Giles Blue.

Girls’ Bathroom: FARROW & BALL Middleton Pink 245

Farrow & Ball's Middleton Pink No. 245. #farrowandballpink #farrowandballmiddletonpink #middletonpink #paintcolor
FARROW & BALL Middleton Pink No. 245. A delicate pink. Our prettiest and most delicate pink was named after the discerning colourist, Catherine Middleton. This light pastel tone is fresh and uncomplicated, especially when contrasted with All White for a gently playful feel. Try pairing our Middleton Pink with Great White for a slightly cleaner urban finish.

Paint color of  shutters: TOLLENS Vert Olivier (satin) purchased at Castorama.

This is a traditional French exterior paint color very popular in France.

French farmhouse green shutters paint color: Vert Olivier.
French farmhouse shutters light medium green paint color: TOLLENS Vert Olivier.

    Hi Michele! What a lovely post, as usual! This is a bit random, but do you know what breed the dog is in the first picture? My best friend had a dog that looked exactly like it over 15 years ago. Her family always wanted to find out what breed she was but since they got her from a shelter they never got a definitive answer. Eventually they gave up the quest, but when my bestie and I were looking over your post she suggested we ask you. I mean, it's worth a shot! Thank you in advance and again, really amazing post! Definitely got my redecorating juices flowing :p

      Hi Kinga! Thanks for the kind words. I love that dog! Doesn't she look like a Schnoodle–a schnauzer poodle mix? Wondering if the image may be from Rachael Hale's book about dogs in France. I'll keep searching, and let me know if you discover the breed/mix. πŸ™‚

    I was struck by the pair of green boxes flanking the doorway with the posse of geese.
    They were fantastic!

    The dog is a Wire Fox Terrier! Think Asta from the Thin Man movies. The coat is blown out. Many are seen in France. I have owned a few. Rascals!

      I added a link to the post for an iron panel bed that has a same feel. Thanks for reading, and I hope this helps. You can find a similar bed here:http://shrsl.com/ytdb
