These European inspired modern farmhouse bedrooms designed by Brooke Giannetti of Velvet and Linen and Giannetti Home are studies in classic, unfussy, timeless, and tranquil interior design, and the bedroom decor reflects a soulfulness which can perhaps only be accomplished with a full heart, a light hand, and a brilliance for mixing ancient with modern.
Still. We can be attentive students and aspire.
Also. Just a reminder that I write these posts stream of consciousness style and sort of just let my mind go. I’m watching the Oscars, as I type this, and Sam Rockwell just won, and I reallllllly was hoping he would win! Woohoo! Back to bi’ness.
Euro modern farmhouse ingredients? Reclaimed limestone fireplace surrounds, Swedish antique furniture, aged European mirrors and lamps, old French baskets, vintage botanical prints, and rustic old wood beams mix with modern artwork and contemporary clean-lined linen upholstered furniture pieces in these beautiful bedrooms. Shiny metals and polished surfaces typically do not make an appearance since signs of weathering, distress, and imperfection are revered. The color palette in these bedrooms? Subtle and sophisticated neutrals with a fair measure of creamy white. The tones are from the cool side of the color wheel, and warmth comes from natural wood and patina-ed iron. Materials incorporated into the design are derived from nature, from plaster and stone to wood, linen, and leather. The finishes on pieces in these bedrooms are matte, as found, unlaquered, undone, and rich with patina.
What gives these bedrooms modern farmhouse decor appeal?
Well, you won’t find shiplap, barn style lighting, planter boxes full of succulents, or cute country check curtains. Not that there’s anything wrong with those options. After all, I’m in Fixer Upper Land (#demoday) at the moment in Waco, Texas, where thousands of farmhouse style fans flock to bring home creamy pottery, rustic baskets, linen dishtowels, and little signs with sentiments about happiness and home. Farmhouse decor lovers want to capture simple beauty, and truly the appetite for country farmhouse decor seems not to be waning. For makers in the farmhouse style biz, business is booming. But in our quest to decorate with simple beauty, let’s not make it too simple or take too many shortcuts. Farmhouse style in a box can result in a contrived and less than authentic result, which isn’t necessary with our access to education and inspiration! The inspiring bedrooms you’ll see below are modern in the sense that they boast: uncluttered, airy, open, unfussy, simple and clean-lined interiors. The bedroom decor is farmhouse and countrylike as evidenced in its casual charm, its intentionally un-fancy-ness, its natural warmth, and all those killer cozy details.
Where does the European inspired piece come into play?
These bedrooms by Giannetti Home reflect a European sensibility in their reverence for collected old objects, quality craftsmanship, and effortless elegance created with an artistic eye for balance and romance. The architecture is special (#SteveGiannetti), and if there is one thing we can learn from deconstructing beautiful European interiors, it’s that the bones beneath all the trappings are always stunning. The bedrooms also reflect literal influence from Europe since they incorporate collected antiques and building materials sourced from France, Belgium, Sweden, and Italy. Not able to jet to the South of France to tour French farmhouses at the moment? Not a problem. There are designers and inspiration at Dering Hall and Houzz, and modern technology can be the cat’s pajamas…develop your eye and study European interiors in cyberspace, hyperspace, on the superhighway, Insta, and oh yeah…on the pages of design books, Architectural Digest, Milieu, and Veranda.
