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!

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!

French Farmhouse Design Idea No. 23: RECLAIMED MATERIALS

If ever you have a chance to build a home and you love French farmhouse style, consider incorporating reclaimed materials into the design.

When we built our previous home, we found beautiful architectural salvage and vintage design elements to weave into the construction. (Leaded glass windows installed inside interior rooms, etc.)

Reclaimed stone, antique doors and mantels, and one of a kind architectural elements. #housetour #frenchcountry #frenchfarmhouse #europeanfarmhouse #chateaudomingue #rusticdecor #pamelapierce #elegantdecor #bathroom #antiques #stone

So many new builds lack character and personality. It’s gratifying to customize with reclaimed materials, knowing no other home like yours exists!

French Farmhouse Design Idea No. 24: FARM STYLE PENDANTS

These artisan farm style pendants in a French farmhouse kitchen are custom through Vivi et Margot.

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

Here’s a minimal look for walls from Patina Farm. In lieu of paint, a thin coat of Kal-Kote is troweled over drywall.

French Farmhouse Design Idea No. 26: SKIP ORNAMENTAL TRIM

Another decidedly minimal option, consistent with historic farmhouses? An absence of door casing, trim, and baseboard.

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 bath redo was such a refreshing project to see from the Giannettis a few years back.

They renovated their kids’ bathroom with simplicity in mind. Walls and shower were covered in pool plaster.

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. 37: STONE SINKS

It has always been a dream of mine to own a stone sink – so very rustic and charming.

Shhhhhh – don’t tell my mama about this. A few years back, I drove and met a stranger at his storage unit to buy a stone sink advertised on Craigslist. Um yeahhhhhh. There was no sink to be found at the sketchy scene. Miss Fairy wasn’t a bit amused when invited to browse just inside the dark cave. Lesson learned. No more dark alley Craigslisty rendezvous nonsense for this 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.
