European farmhouse and French Country decorating style photos

It is impossible to sum up in a single post (or 20 posts!) just why rustically beautiful European farmhouse and French Country decorating style is so appealing and so instantly recognizable. Is it due to WABI SABI…the perfect imperfection of how European farmhouse and French Country decorated homes are pulled together? Is it the rugged beauty of so much natural rusticity? The reverence for antiques, quirky combinations, and utility? Surely the European approach to achieving a character-filled eclectic look for interiors is what so many of us want to lean into in order to create that sense of effortless, undone, non-contrived timelessness at home.

Examples of European farmhouse interiors today are decidedly rustic, rugged, romantic, handsome, ethereal, spare, and moody. I often love pretty buffalo checks and feminine chandeliers, but that lovely decor will be reserved for another post. Today is raw goodness from Maisons Cote Sud magazine that caught my eye.

While I am a high achiever, it’s just not possible to demystify here how to possibly get the look. Do you have piles of ancient stone lying around? Ha! But some inspiring posts are for pure pleasure of looking, savoring, and noting the details. I never tire of studying European farmhouse and French Country decorating styles. The other day, I shared French Country Farmhouse inspirationย and French Country gardens, and today we will explore mostly farmhouse and country house interiors from France, Belgium, Italy, Sweden, and elsewhere (like Arizona!).

    You are spot-on about the wabi-sabi element. It is not exactly jolie-laide, but close–both are about embracing imperfection.
    Another great collection of photos. Lots of ideas!

      It’s such an important concept for me personally too and probably why I am so drawn to French sensibilities. I am ready to snap my own images of your countryside! ๐Ÿ™‚

    While in country, I love to soak in the old, snap pictures and appreciate. Back home, this look would seem out of place. Iโ€™ll leave the very old to enjoy during travels to Europe, and beyond. Iโ€™m heading off on a river cruise through several countries in a couple of days. Iโ€™ll be soaking up every minute of the old. Then, happily return to my more modern way of living. But…. every time I come home, I have a little bit more of history stored in my mind.

      Sounds wonderful, and I hope your travels will fill up your senses once again. I think the same sensibilities exhibited in these images can be applied to any design genre where the goal is simplicity, wabi sabi, timelessness, and quietude. I suppose the trick is making it your own!

        The most rustic element in my home would be the tumbled cobblestones in different sizes laid under my wisteria filled pergola. Leading to and from are slate stepping stones. All surrounded by lush gardens, a rusting iron gate, wind sculpture, and trees blowing in the breeze. It is my ode to times past. It is my Wabi Sabi. Perfectly imperfect! But, then nature is such.
        Thank you for the food for thought.

          Omg. It all sounds heavenly and so in sync with the examples in this post. MERCI for painting beautiful pictures with words here! I can see it! xox

    Lovely indeed! Most of them to me seem very restful, though honestly I’m not sure I could cook in the rustic kitchens for too long….. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    As I looked at the photo near the beginning of the post, the one where there are rocks embedded in the floor, I said to myself “Oooh…I have that too!” The former owners of our home put that sort of treatment into a small area (about 4′ x 4′) by the front door. It’s easy to clean and helps keep dirt/debris from landing directly on the carpet of the living room. Oddly, they did those stones in the home and their aesthetic was more towards modern/contemporary style —think 60’s meets the 21st century. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    It goes to show that natural elements incorporated into a home seem to transcend nearly all decorating styles. And I’m so happy it works with our French–inspired home design now.

      I love that. And how nice they repeated that little touch! And yes, you’re so right about good design transcending any era. Midcentury modern is not always my favorite, but the Laurent House I toured is designed so artfully and soulfully with reverence to the outdoors that I can imagine living in such a place. Thanks for adding to the beauty here!

    Such eye candy! This style is just captivating to me. The courtyard with lights strung is just magnificent!
