Let’s be perfectly candid…
there’s “French Farmhouse” style
a lot of Americans try to emulate, and
then there’s the real thing, as in, a farmhouse
located in France (the Camargue), with a mix
of modern and antique elements.

It isn’t contrived frou frou with roosters and
little plaques proclaiming ‘chocolat’;
but in fact, it sports terrazzo floors
and leather butterfly chairs.

My own take on Euro-country style
at the fixer upper is spare but cozy
with lots of Belgian linen.

I spied this home on Annie’s Stylejuicer
and couldn’t quite get it out of my noggin.
Perhaps because it breaks any number
of unspoken design rules and refuses to be
just one thing…and this blogger loves
a renegade!

The black and white is so boldly fresh, the minimal mood so daring.

Does the black kitchen surprise you? It certainly pushed my buttons and would seem to reside in Brooklyn and not in the French countryside, oui?

What say ye?

Can you imagine abiding in a traditional, old
farmhouse where you opt to go modern inside?

This is certainly not the typical French farmhouse I post on this site, and it does not reflect how I would live in the space.

Would love to hear your take.

If you missed my post-election prayer,
find it here and I hope it breathes with hope.

Peace to you right where you are.

    Yes, I could definitely abide in an abode such as this! It's just beautiful with it's rustic ceiling beams and curved windows, no need for anything fussy, and the outdoor patio is divine. It's my kind of place. Thanks for sharing, Michele!
