French Farmhouse Decorating Ideas & Secrets

Are there secrets to achieving a French Farmhouse or European Country inspired decor look in your home? French farmhouse style originates from the lovely landscape of rural France with its hills and valleys. Patience, ma cherie! The French take a very effortless, unhurried, and nostalgic sort of approach to their home decor which unfolds over time since family treasures are handed down through generations. Timeless over trends. Instead of following trends and redecorating every decade, the French prefer timeworn finishes and appreciate patina which results from age and wear. It’s an elegant, sophisticated look that is never contrived or overthought. The ultimate mix masters. There is often a sense of refinement in French Country homes where a mix of old and new result in interiors that feel balanced and sensible, yet soulful and interesting. Old World charm and collected antiques and heirlooms impart a sense of rich character.

PIN me to save for later!

Mismatched masterfully. 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. Surprisingly 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 much of the furniture tends to be weathered, chunky, and not delicate, pieces get better with age and use and work hard no matter where they are put into service. Nature honoring. 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. Weathered to perfection. 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.

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.”

    A highlight of my Interior Design career was traveling to France to help renovate a very old farm building, (could it have been 700?) into a Gite used for vacationers. This building had been used as an apartment for farm hands many years before, and lastly a barn for sheep. It was an amazing project and I left a part of my heart in the Limousine region of France. Your post brought back wonderful memories.

      That sounds like an amazing renovation, Karen. Thanks for adding to the beauty here. 🙂

    Would you put a link to the site to nominate (vote) for your blog as THE BEST which it is?

    These are all swoon-worthy! I think architecture is a big part of French country appeal, those stone walls and old floors, so perfect!

      You know it, sunshine. Bon weekend, Holly. 🙂
