38 Amazing French Country Decor Interior Inspirations

What is about the decor in a classic country house inspired by the South of France that delights our senses and moves our souls? While we may be able to name a long list of French Country interior design ingredients and French Country home decor elements, truly there is a layer of French mystique at work we cannot name. But that won’t stop admirers of this style from trying (or from reading Veranda, Country French, and Milieu!)!

Today’s interior design inspiration celebrates inspiring photos of interiors which capture the essence of French Country decor style, though the spaces themselves live in France, America, Sweden, and elsewhere. It seems indeed possible to honor this style of home decor and emulate its sensibilities and flavors no matter where we may abide!

So much inspiration in today's French Country roundup including: Elegant simplicity in an magnificent Provencal, French Country bathroom with aged clawfoot tub and serene decor. #Provence #FrenchCountry

38 Amazing French Country Decor Interior Inspirations (via LinenandLavender)

Authentic French Country homes have timeworn beauty on their side for sure. Such aged beauty is reflected in French Country decor’s rusticity, ruggedness, threadbare, faded, tumbledown, peely, imperfect loveliness. There is a warmth and a charm imparted which feels unmistakably authentic. Country French homes and interiors feel accessible and easy to unwind in

When a home has a true French Country decor vibe, it will inevitably appeal to all of the senses and offer an organic, naturally comforting emotional climate. After facing the chaos of a grueling work day which can transpire in modern day life, who doesn’t crave that respite? Antiques and vintage pieces are not merely at home in French Country interiors; they are honored with reverence. This decor style feels collected and timeless, rather than trendy or of the moment. Scratches on the wood floor or stains on the marble kitchen work table? Ahhhhh, just the look we were aiming for!

Signs of age and developing patinas are welcomed with love. Is it any wonder so many young moms in America have similarly grown passionate about farmhouse style and country decor? Young children are surely excellent “distressors” of finishes after all. Country style is an easy design style for families to embrace since the decor is not meant to be hands off.

Find sprinkled into the French Country decor inspiration, French Country inspired furniture suggestions to bring elements of timeless and tranquil European country style to your home. Affiliate links follow and won’t cost you extra for purchases, yet I may earn a small commission.

What you won’t find sprinkled into the roundup is much blue, yellow, gingham, or roosters. There are a few ruffles, yes. Nor will you see little plaques proclaiming “French Farmhouse” or “Provence.” Those versions of French Country seem still to be alive and well in the marketplace, but let’s step away from the contrived and the less-than-natural. You WILL spy evidence of the natural countryside, well-worn objects, unpolished and unlaquered metals, linens growing better with use and age, ancient stoneware, baskets, painted furniture pieces, decaying plaster walls imperfect and wavy, an absence of plastic or synthetics, and furniture arrangements that don’t feel rigid.

I scribbled down a list of French Country decor ingredients I admire that seem to come into play…

Farm tables
Antique chairs
Painted furniture
Natural wood finishes
Reclaimed stone
Farm Sinks
Vintage and Antique Doors
Iron lanterns
Organic materials
Handcrafted objects
Plaster walls
Rustic Cupboards
Lofty ceilings
Reading Nooks
Rustic 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)
An absence of plastic/vinyl/and disposable

I am sure I have missed a ton of French Country details! Do have your PINNING clicking fingers ready!

    I noticed a the beginning of your post that vintage linens were a love. My husband recently received some damask linens from his great aunt that we think came from his great-great grandmother who was from Germany. There are an odd size: 3 feet by 15 inches (approximately). Some have small tabs sewn on the short end. Any ideas what they were used for? Thank you.

    • February 17, 2018 / 11:39 am

      Interesting. I don’t know too much about vintage linens but I’ll ask around. 🙂
