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 browse around Pinterest, and it would seem there are more than a few inauthentic attempts at the look which can fall flat without studying the genius underneath this design style that makes it so charming in the first place.

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. Mix masters Genius.

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

3. Mismatch Magnifique. 

Many Americans still opt for matching furniture sets that fall from favor in style after a few years, which would never do for a French farmhouse. The French country approach to furnishing a home is much looser, and the goal is a customized harmonious and unhomogenized look that appears undecorated and not overwrought.

4. Refreshingly frugal and functional.

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

5. Honoring Nature. 

The French love their gardens and bringing in flowers for home decor and arrange the blooms quite casually. Depending on the region, sunflowers, irises, and poppies are common flowers which flourish in the French countryside.

6. Distressing is Not Distressing.

Since French Country is a style which imparts a sense of age and tradition, scratches, rust, and signs of wear are celebrated. Perfectly new painted finishes or stains do not blend well with antiques and vintage pieces with desirable patina. The same goes for rugs. The French don’t shop for a new rug because of fading or fraying since this look is attractive, and the practical thing to do is to use something until it is threadbare and beyond useful. The distress and wear which come from using furniture and objects are honored and exalted in French Country design.

7. Patience, mes amis! 

The French seem always to take a decidedly patient, unhurried, and thoughtful, and not-too-serious sort of approach to their home decor which unfolds over time as family heirlooms are handed down through generations.

8. Trends? Look the other way. 

Instead of following trends and redecorating every decade, the French understand the beauty of timeless and prefer timeworn finishes, patina, and character which results from age and wear. 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.”
