17 Beautiful European Country Design Details
Is it even necessary to mention the obvious? Europeans know their way around chic style, layering, cozy factor, and THE MIX of vintage with modern. I go into detail about authentic European country design in this story. But it is quite possible to capture the spirit of lovely country homes no matter where you rest your head.
For example, this living room (below) in a French country modern farmhouse by Eleanor Cummings, is not only located in Round Top, Texas, but it was a new build! (Don’t those beams add incredible age, texture, and character!?!)
Our own current home in the Midwest incorporates some of my favorite European country inspired design elements.
