Tips & European Farmhouse Interior Design Ideas
Secrets to achieving a European Farmhouse and Country inspired decor look for your home? European and French farmhouse style originates from the lovely landscape of rural regions of Europe and France with its hills and valleys. Patience, ma cherie! Undoubtedly, Europeans seem to take a very effortless, unhurried, and nostalgic sort of approach to their home decor. Certainly the decor unfolds over time since family treasures are handed down through generations. Timeless over trends. Equally important? Instead of following trends and redecorating every decade, timeworn finishes and developed patinas are preferred resulting from age and wear. Basically, it’s an elegant, sophisticated look that is never contrived or overthought.
How to Get the Mix Right
The ultimate mix masters. There is often a sense of refinement in European Country homes. Ideally, a mix of old and new results in interiors which feel balanced and sensible. In addition, they exude character and soulfulness. Old World charm and collected antiques and heirlooms impart a sense of rich character.Mismatched masterfully. Many Americans still opt for matching furniture sets which fall from favor in style after a few years. However, this would never do for a European farmhouse. Indeed, the Euro farmhouse and French country approach to furnishing a home is much looser. Additionally, the goal is a customized harmonious and unhomogenized look that appears undecorated and not overwrought.
Surprisingly frugal and functional. Certainly Euro farmhouse style is practical since home decor pieces tend to work in a variety of rooms. For example, pieces 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 grow better with age and use! Also, the decor pieces must function and work hard no matter where they are put into service. Nature honoring. Europeans love their gardens and bringing in flowers for home decor. Blooms are often arranged quite casually. For example, depending on the region, sunflowers, irises, and poppies are common flowers brought inside.
Weathered to perfection. Since European Country is a style which imparts a sense of age and tradition, scratches, rust, and signs of wear are celebrated. Likewise, perfectly new painted finishes or stains do not blend well with antiques and vintage pieces with desirable patina. The same goes for rugs. For example, the French don’t shop for a new rug simply because of fading or fraying. In fact, since a timeworn look is attractive, it’s the look that works. It’s common to use something until it is threadbare and no longer functional. Say yes to distress!
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.” For example, accessories typically are useful. Wall-hung plates which can be called into service. Jugs and jars can hold kitchen staples. Baskets can house produce from the garden. Another example of this casual approach? Open shelves which can display items both useful and attractive.
