What makes this design style so lovely? Farmhouses in Europe have timeworn beauty on their side for sure. The signs of age which convey in rusticity, ruggedness, threadbare, faded, tumbledown, peely, imperfect loveliness, impart a warmth and a charm both unmistakable and authentic. Farmhouse interiors feel approachable and easy to relax in, and perhaps this is why so many folks who love farmhouse design are drawn to them. Farmhouse style works especially well when you love living with a mix of imperfect vintage pieces and modern conveniences and when the juxtaposition of rusticity and elegance charm your eye.

What decor elements factor into this style? Farmhouse style decor has an organic, natural vibe which is comforting to arrive home to after facing the chaos and daily grind of modern living. Since antiques and vintage pieces are not just for show in European inspired farmhouse living, there is a sensibility of practicality inherent. Objects old and handed down are honored and reverently beholden, and this decor style feels collected and timeless rather than trendy and castoff-ish. Rather than despair over scratches on the wood floor or stains on the marble kitchen work table, such signs of age and developing patina may be welcomed with love. No wonder so many young American moms have developed a passion for farmhouse style and country decor–young children are excellent “distress-ors” of finishes, and it’s an easy design style to embrace when you’re after a truly live-able and not hands off.

How can you begin to build on the look? I’m sharing home decor and furniture suggestions for those of you hoping to bring elements of timeless and tranquil European country style into your own interior design. Bonus: Farmhouse style is easy on the wallet as long as you don’t insist on collecting rare, imported European antiques!.

What makes European inspired farmhouse decor distinctive? There is a barefoot elegance to European farmhouse style which I believe distinguishes it from other classes of farmhouse decor. There’s a taste factor for sure. If you study these interiors, you are not likely to spy kitschy little signs with roosters (unless they are ancient!), man-made antlers, or plaques proclaiming “Bless This Mess.” (I know we lovers of country decor like to keep our agendas and decor simple, but why oh why must that translate into boasting about lazy housekeeping??? *steps off her high horse*) You will find fresh flowers and branches from the garden, unpolished and unlaquered metals, beautiful linens which grow better with use and age, personal treasures, natural textural decor elements like baskets, painted furniture pieces in varying conditions, layered rugs (or none at all!), plaster walls (imperfect and wavy), an absence of plastic and synthetics, and furniture arrangements with a loose and conversational feel that is never rigidly appointed.

Recipe for Euro Farmhouse? It is best when it evolves over time. Americans tend to be impatient about such decor matters, but patience can yield enduring beautiful results. I scribbled down a list of European inspired farmhouse style decor ingredients which frequently come into play…

Harvest tables
Antique chairs
Painted furniture
Natural wood finishes
Reclaimed stone
Farmhouse Sinks
Planked doors
Iron lanterns
Organic materials
Handcrafted objects
Plaster walls
Rustic Cupboards
Lofty ceilings
Reading Nooks
Butcher’s Block
Exposed Ceiling Beams
Patina-ed everything
Weathered Wood and Metals
Fresh Flowers
Handpainted objects
Glazed tiles
Vintage Linens and Quilts
Clawfoot Tubs
Canopy Beds
Matte finishes (non-shiny metals)
Steel windows
An absence of plastic/vinyl/and disposable

I can’t get enough of the romance and
purity in these rooms that appear so
effortless and sing with so much soul.

    Serene ,peaceful, satisfying, this style speaks to my soul. The almost thread bare softness of old cotton and the joy of an oversized slipcovered chair. Soft to the eyes and comforting to the body Thank you for these post . Look forward to more. Slowly evolving my home to reflect this style.
