French Farmhouse Design Idea No. 21: RUSTIC FARM TABLE

There is nothing like a long, rustic farm table or harvest table in an informal dining area to bring the family together! Find some gorgeous examples RIGHT HERE.

French Farmhouse Design Idea No. 22: SOFT NEUTRAL PALETTE

Many moons ago, I painted our master bedroom a moody, deep shade of peacock blue which we enjoyed all of 15 minutes! When it’s a timeless, tranquil, French inspired rustic look you’re after, take cues from sand, sea, and snow. This kids bedroom (Vivi et Margot) sends little girls off to dreamland quietly – bright colors inviting them to frolic are blossoming just outside!

French Farmhouse Design Idea No. 23: RECLAIMED MATERIALS

If you ever have a chance to build a home and you love French farmhouse style, do consider incorporating reclaimed materials into the design. When we built our previous home, we found beautiful architectural salvage and vintage design elements which were worked into the construction. (Leaded glass windows installed inside interior rooms, etc.) So many new builds lack character and personality, and it’s gratifying to customize with reclaimed materials, knowing there is no other home like yours on the planet!

These artisan farm style pendants in a French farmhouse kitchen are custom through Vivi et Margot, and there are plentiful options for these rustic beauties. See THESE and THESE.

French Farmhouse Design Idea No. 25: PLASTER & NO PAINT

Here’s a minimalistic alternative look for walls from Patina Farm (Giannetti Home). In lieu of paint, a thin coat of Kal-Kote was troweled over drywall.

My thoughts will always turn to Houston-based Segreto Finishes when I think of the prettiest artisan plaster and wall finishes! Have you seen what their team can do to transform walls!?!

French Farmhouse Design Idea No. 26: SKIP ORNAMENTAL TRIM

Another more minimalist option and in keeping with historic farmhouses? An absence of door casing, trim, and baseboard. Obviously, this is not a look for everyone and not one to choose if your doors are sub-par, but you’re in fantasyland here, mes amis.

French Farmhouse Design Idea No. 27: WHITE OAK WOOD FLOORING

You must know by now how much I love it! We have installed white oak in multiple projects, and I mused about engineered vs. hardwood options with white oak RIGHT HERE. At Patina Farm, Brooke mentions on her blog, Velvet and Linen, that they used prefinished white oak planks.

French Farmhouse Design Idea No. 28: GRAIN SACKS

Do these ever fall from favor? They are so fun to collect, still widely available, and perfect for a variety of applications including chairs, pillows, and table runners.

French Farmhouse Design Idea No. 29: CANDLE STYLE CHANDELIERS

Ooh lala, the romance of candlelight! To capture that effect, place old or new French style chandeliers EVERYWHERE and don’t forget the dimmer switch.

French Farmhouse Design Idea No. 30: RUSTIC LANTERNS

They’re handsome, often come with patina-lovely aged goodness, and can do wonders in a room where you don’t want things to become too sweet or precious.

French Farmhouse Design Idea No. 31: AIRY & FUNCTIONAL BATH

This was such a refreshing project to see from the Giannettis a few years back. They renovated their kids’ bathroom with simplicity in mind. The walls and shower are covered in pool plaster. A unique vanity was created from an old table, and a sheet of glass keeps the small space feely airy.

In the market for a pretty French basket for storage and texture? SEE THESE.

French Farmhouse Design Idea No. 32: AGED POTS

Here’s a simple idea to bring French charm to your patio or anywhere…new and old terracotta pots can be found easily, and you can age them if you’d rather not let nature take its sweet time.

French Farmhouse Design Idea No. 33: WOOD SHUTTERS

No need for fancy schmancy drapery panels in every room! I love the idea of having working shutters in a room for function, beauty, and authenticity.

I loved the abundance and color Brooke Giannetti shared in this image of her breakfast area which looks as though it could easily be located in the South of France!

French Farmhouse Design Idea No. 37: STONE SINKS

It has always been a dream of mine to have a stone sink – they’re so rustic and charming. You can’t tell my mama about this, but a few years back I actually met a stranger at his storage unit to check out the stone sink he had advertised on Craigslist. Um. There was no sink to be found at the sketchy scene, and I wasn’t a bit amused. Lesson learned. No more dark alley Craigslist rendezvous nonsense for this stone sink lovin’ foolish blogger.

French Farmhouse Design Idea No. 38: UNLAQUERED BRASS

You can google ‘unlaquered brass’ and ‘velvetandlinen’ for tips from Brooke Giannetti about incorporating this material into your designs if you love an aged, patina-perfect, French farmhouse look.

French Farmhouse Design Idea No. 39: WABI SABI WONDERFUL

If you love the Japanese concept of Wabi Sabi, then you know how it relates to French farmhouse sensibilities. Reverence for the imperfect, the evolving, and humble translates into welcoming flawed objects and weathered finishes into the home.

French Farmhouse Design Idea No. 40: OPEN SHELVING

We see open shelving EVERYWHERE in farmhouse kitchen design, but it’s more rare to see it in bathrooms like this one at Patina Farm. Your comfort level with open shelving will depend upon your organizational preference and visual clutter tolerance.
