European Country French Decor in Our Renovated Home

Our home is neither fancy nor fussy and came with all sorts of cottage quirkiness. Over the years, I have identified its design style with various names, and it’s certainly not purely Modern French or Country Cottage. My style is a mix of qualities that feel comforting to me: European country inspired, coastal, under-baked, understated, spare, and serene. So, yep, depending on my mood, I may call it Modern French, Belgian or Nordic inspired. Today’s European Country French Decor in Our Renovated Home shares favorite decor finds chosen especially for our home.

Hello Lovely StudioEuropean Country French Decor…certainly helpful indeed. Interior design inspiration: European Country style and neutral interiors as well as emphasis on natural materials.

European Country French Decor in Our Renovated Home

I’m not sure why I’m so resistant to categorize the fixer upper we completely renovated which is now quite un-fixer upper like! Our last house was a French country manse we designed that felt Old World and established, while this one is a blend since it has existing architecture (contemporary, and Cali-style) imagined by someone else.

When we found it, it was a neglected custom cottage with great bones on a beautiful lot swallowed up in weeds (invisible from the street!). We inherited a whole bunch of unsavory damage and design elements, and I shared messy weekly progress HERE.

This Fixer Upper Needed Love Big Time!

A sea of taupe carpet and yellow paint were everywhere with: holes in lumpy walls, 4′ wide woofers and tweeters in bathroom ceilings (#justdont), hollow-core doors, and critters in crawlspaces. Most of the hardware, faucets, and fixtures had been spray-painted white so the marketing photos didn’t look half bad. I guess the only thing worse than el-cheapo brass-plated everything is white latex painted brass-plated everything.

The exterior of our home is humble and would likely strike you as Nordic or contemporary coastal cottage. River rock accents and simple lines mean the house is not trying to show off but rather aims to tuck into the woods without a fuss. We’re sited on a woodsy lot, high on a hill which is wonderful for privacy and interest.

The fan windows are something you see in a lot of homes built in the 1990s. On a good day, they feel a little Hamptons-like, and then there are days they read ‘too granny.’ I have mostly made friends with them, imagining they are reminiscent of a chapel.

Here’s a tonal cottage style bedroom collection in the same spirit.

Inside, the ceiling height soars in the great room, and a cat walk floats above the center of all the main level action. The upstairs is light and airy, and the master came with a vaulted ceiling. That architectural detail packs a huge punch since even a humble country cottage master should feel like a retreat.

Downstairs, a family room, bedroom, bathroom, and workshop get used by our grown children who stretch out on a leather sectional and two giant LoveSacs which were the envy of their teen friends back in the day.

While the range of architectural elements of the home may have been hodgepodge, we aimed to integrate and calm them with: a quiet neutral palette, subtraction rather than addition, upgrades, and INTRODUCING PLENTY OF QUALITY NATURAL MATERIALS to impart substance and soul.

A Favorite French Nordic Design Element: Belgian Linen

WHAT YOU ABSOLUTELY CANNOT MISS IS MY PASSION FOR Belgian linen. It is everywhere since I’m unapologetic about my obsession and sprinkle it liberally since it comforts me in countless ways. This house has been a home to messy men who spill salsa, tip over red wine, splatter Bolognese sauce, and track mud on everything. As long as such everyday debris does not lie there too long, it all comes clean!

Bright White Paint Color for Walls, Trim and Ceilings

After testing a wide range of bright white and off-white paint colors for the interiors, BENJAMIN MOORE White was the winner and used for walls, trim, and ceilings. It has minimal undertones and got rid of the dingy and oppressive yellow haze holding back the interiors.

For a white look-alike paint to BM “White,” try BEHR Ultra White.

If you look at the BENJAMIN MOORE White paint swatch in my banner (above), you can see how much brighter and whiter it is than the warm greys around it.

I’m guessing many of you are tired of seeing wood barn doors, but we added one to our lower level (where there was no door) entrance to a family/media room. Now it buffers sound a little bit when closed and provides much needed rustic architectural interest.

    Michele,
    You are so welcome for the feature. I just love looking at your home. It is so serene and comfy looking. Your bedroom is fabulous. You certainly changed the exterior of your home. It is always a wonderful feeling when you take something and make it beautiful and you certainly have.
    Have a lovely weekend.
    Hugs,
    Bev

      We actually haven’t addressed the exterior – I should explain that in the post – the images are the front, back and sides – it’s a little unusual! Thanks so much for the kindness, beautiful blogger!

    I feel like I should whisper. shhhhh
    You have amazing light where you live. It casts a soft glow on every room. The whites and soft greys, with the light coloured wood floors & doors, make a serene abode. I believe your home envelopes you in protection and peace of mind.
    What comes to mind is Betty Lou Who (in her tiny little voice) when touching the Grinch’s cheek saying, “ Noooo, soft”.
    Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us, Michele.

    Blessings,

      What lovely thoughts I accept as gifts for my weary heart. Thank you so so much. It has been a long day of travel to the desert where my mama has just had knee replacement. Light is so precious to me, whether it is streaming through those windows at home or painting the sky pink like it has beautifully tonight. I only want to align with it and somehow bring healing. Peace to you and yours, friend. xox

    White kind of wood are the doors in your pictures above, and what is the stain color on them ?

      Our doors are rustic knotty alder with no stain – just a matte poly on top to seal them. Made by Pacific Entries/Barn Door Express. Thanks for reading.

    OK, I just read the post about your AZ fixer upper (mentioned in this post) …I had never seen that before…amazing and commented so on it! However, your current fixer upper is also amazing! Everything you touch turns to Lovely, Michele! 😊You were such a resource and inspiration for me as we built our house (and continue to be!) and I’m ever so grateful and wanted to make sure you knew!!

      Hahahaha. Our younger son keeps saying I need to make a video to help friends and folks who arrive at the blog know how to use this blog and how to find posts. So this seals it…gotta be brave and do that! Thank you for peeking at that house. It was so easy compared to this fixer upper since we didn’t do demo, and we were always more relaxed there since we did the work on vacation. We’re definitely ready for this next reno for our son – he wants no French Country so it will be interesting!
