Recipe For a Lovely French Farmhouse Laundry Room

Gorgeous-elegant-modern-farmhouse-laundry-room-at-Patina-Farm-on-Hello-Lovely

If you followed the chronicles of Brooke and Steve Giannetti a few years back as they created their dream property (a modern farmhouse in Ojai, Cailfornia) called Patina Farm, then you probably looked forward to all of Brooke’s blog post updates on Velvet and Linen about the progress of the interiors.

The French farmhouse style laundry room was designed so thoughtfully, from the gorgeous vintage door scored in Europe to the charming farm sink and framed botanical prints placed above it.

Today I’m taking a closer look at the ingredients that make this beautiful French modern farmhouse laundry room sing, while also glancing back to see the stages of construction which led to its completion. And if you are after a similar look in your own home and laundry room, find some suggestions below (with affiliate links which means if you use them, I’ll earn a few pennies and you’ll pay nothing extra.)

French Farmhouse Laundry Room – Patina Farm

It’s a gorgeous space with French limestone flooring, a linen skirted farm sink, plaster walls, white cabinetry, open shelving, and rustic baskets.

Let’s peek at the laundry room when it was under construction…

Yep. It just may be my favorite laundry room ever. What do you think?

If you have been following Hello Lovely lately, then you already know I’m smitten with Giannetti Home and have shined the spotlight on: design details within Patina Farm’s kitchen, a renovation project in Atherton, and a French Country beach house new build…and that’s just a few to check out!

Peace to you right where you are.

    It’s gorgeous… but….. the location of that dryer? door that must open and the sink…. sets off my inner Monk. I love the look of all the textures, etc., but much like a famous blogger’s new back door that doesn’t open all the way this would nag at me day and night!

      I feel like more investigating would quell your OCD because Patina Farm never struck me as a pretty facade without smart design for everyday living. It feels like a real, working farmhouse for real humans. I admittedly sacrifice some function for form. But I hear you…it’s important to have a top-notch functioning space for doing laundry since it’s not a public trophy space. However, I would gladly trade mine! My poor laundry room has no redeeming pretty (yet!) and the washer is so deep I require a step stool, which is fine except there’s really no room for said stool so I climb upon an unsightly pair of crocks always left by a son on the floor in front of it to deep sea dive for wet clothes to transfer to the dryer…but guess what? There’s a place for comedy in every home, and I supply a good portion in ours. This response is turning into a short novel but maybe I’m thinking that so very few of us ever get around to creating beautiful surroundings for our washer and dryer and seeing Brooke’s makes me want to give mine some love. Great points and discussion, Oklahoma!

    Gorgeous! Hard to tell in the photo but is there a gap on the sides of the sink? Sadly, this would be a recipe for disaster at my house. Splashes & spills would abound and that little crevice would become an eyesore. Other than that, perfection!
