FRENCH COUNTRY Decor: Stunning French Normandy Style Beach House Tour

THIS FRENCH COUNTRY HOME TOUR is LOVELY and oh so LENGTHY, but I promise it will be worth your time!! I’m sharing glimpses of the interiors in process as well as the reveal, and you’ll truly sense the craftsmanship and bones before the pretty decor. What a blessing Brooke Giannetti blogged through the construction process and provided images on her lovely blog.

Pretty please PIN like there’s no tomorrow to help me grow!

Did you see yesterday’s post about the WAY DAY thing starting at midnight, Wednesday, April 25th? I am totally taking advantage of the huge savings, and decor suggestions below may be at the lowest prices of the year!!! In some cases, I’m supplying sources and links for the EXACT items in this French Normandy style beach house! Can you tell I’m excited about this house tour with the excessive exclamations!?!

I can’t help it. I love it when a home’s beautiful interiors just refuse to be confined to a single category of interior design! Giannetti Home’s French Normandy style beach house project known as Oceanside is timelessly renegade in that way.

Are the interiors French Country inspired? Oui. You’ll find rustic decor mixed with refinery, Swedish antiques, and romantic linens. Is the design also reminiscent of modern farmhouse style? Oui. The Giannettis are known for their way with European Country infused modern farmhouse flavor, and this project boasts such deliciousness. Is it beachy? Affirmative. It’s not fussy and feels timeless with its barefoot beachy elegance.

I think you are going to love the decor’s ocean blue.

Ocean blue shows up as a lovely common thread stretching from the exterior trims to the check tiles over the range to painted kitchen cabinets to bedroom linens. If you love blue…ooh la la.

Let’s escape to this Pacific oceanside French Normandy style home,
with timeless and tranquil interior design inspiring meditative peacefulness.
If you love beachy blue-greys and oceanic aquas, you are in for a treat!
All the blue married with various natural rustic and weathered wood finishes
results in a not-too-feminine flavor of French Country that feels fresh.

You’ll notice interior designer Brooke Giannetti incorporated many of the signature design elements she is known for: unlaquered brass, limestone, Belgian linen, Aidan Gray chandeliers, light blue accents, fireclay farm sinks, stone sinks, European antiques, and no recessed lighting!

Normandy? The Normandy region of France combines a 360-mile dramatic coastline, including the dramatically evocative World War II landing beaches, with a verdant interior of lush farmland, bustling market towns, and historic landmarks such as the cities of Caen, Bayeux and Rouen. Gastronomic delights abound, from fine cheeses to cider and Calvados.

Yum. Also yum? This kitchen.

Here it is with the honed calacatta marble counters installed…

The honed Calacatta slabs have been installed in the kitchen. The gray and gold veining in the marble picks up the accent colors in the house.

p.s.

This project by the Giannettis brings to mind the power of the sea
where saltwater and waves can be truly transforming.

One of my favorite poets, Mary Oliver wrote this ode to the ocean. Maybe these lines will wash over you gently just where you are.

OCEAN

I am in love with Ocean
lifting her thousands of
white hats
in the chop of the storm,
or lying smooth and blue,
the
loveliest bed in the world.

In the personal life, there
is
always grief more than
enough,
a heart-load for each of
us
on the dusty road. I
suppose
there is a reason for this,
so I will be patient, acquiescent. But
I will live
nowhere except here, by
Ocean, trusting
equally in all the blast
and welcome
of her sorrowless, salt
self.

~Mary Oliver

    Oh and PIN I certainly did! As I am always searching for color inspiration in my still life photography projects, your posts are my greatest resource. Thank you over and over for the gorgeous content you share!

    Perfectly executed example of a stunning home in relaxed French elegance. I love it all! Wouldn’t change a thing.

    Any idea what the exact color of blue paint used on kitchen cabinets? It’s so pretty!

      Hi Connie. I will research that for you and circle back here when I have a response. I am guessing it was a custom mix as Brooke and Steve chose a custom color for all the trim at Patina Farm (but they gave us a clue that the color is very similar to Farrow & Ball’s Pavilion Gray). Thanks for reading! 🙂

        I looked at Pavilion Gray on my F&B color chart. It looks quite different than the color on the kitchen cabinets–much more gray than the cabinets. But then computer monitors aren’t a great source of reality when it comes to color. 😉 Mais Merci.

          Sorry to confuse you! Pavilion Gray is close to the light blue grey the Giannettis used throughout Patina Farm (like on their steel-plated windows). I am still checking about the blue in this home. 🙂

  3. April 25, 2018 / 9:24 am

    The touches of blue are lovely. It’s such a calming color and it goes so well with sandy beige.

      I agree. You don’t often see such rustic wood finishes paired with ocean blue–even though it is as natural as driftwood and a blue sea.

  4. April 25, 2018 / 12:08 pm

    I so love reading all of your post and you are so talented. This home is so beautiful, and everything is perfection. I love all things Steve and Brook do. I also am crazy for Aiden Grey. I am drooling over this kitchen! I love the color of the walls and the kitchen cabinet color. Could you please find out the color of the walls and kitchen cabinet color. Also do you know if the wood island in the kitchen has a finish over the stain or natural wood color.? It is so pretty with the other colors in the room. Thank you for the work you do to give us so many post about decorating.

      You’re so kind to me. I think I know the wall color, Judy! I’ll double check, but if I recall, it is Farrow & Ball Wimborne White. I’ll ask Brooke about the kitchen cabinets, but I’m guessing it is a custom mix. We need a whole post with this blue since it resonates with so many of us. The island certainly appears natural – I’ll inquire further. 🙂
