Shop My Home: European Inspired, White French Country Decorating Resources

Five years ago, we traded our great big French country home for a Chicagoland fixer upper (half the square footage and property) to renovate ourselves. In Shop My Home: European Inspired, White French Country Decorating Resources, I’ll share shopping links for decor and furniture, and also provide my honest opinions about what has worked well.

Property Overview

I still call it our fixer upper; however, it’s anything but that now! When we took possession, it was a sorry mishmash of neglect. Even so, we liked the flow of the cottage style home’s floorplan as well as the location. The lot is embraced by mature trees, and with the home sited on a hill, there is wonderful privacy despite being less than an acre.

Thank goodness we were full of optimism and vibrant health at the time of the DIY renovation. We tackled this place entirely ourselves (except for the addition of wood floors)!

The impetus for leaving our picture perfect French country house? We desired to downsize as emptynesters and were ready to trade excessive landscape and maintenance expenses for a simpler lifestyle.

Hello Lovely Fixer Upper

So swallowed up in weeds and overgrowth, you couldn’t even see our fixer upper from the street before we got to work! Our home sat vacant for a couple of years, and before then, it was subject to a flow of renters. As we renovated and adventured, I shared our steady progress right HERE.

Hello Lovely Studio…in case you care to shop my home.

Upgrading Fixtures & Finishes Was Key to the Design Progress

An ocean of new but cheap taupe carpeting was everywhere, and the yellowy painted walls felt wrong and outdated. There were holes in the lumpy textured walls along with a multitude of bad wall repairs.

We found SO many strange design choices (some of which I cannot mention on this G-rated site) including giant woofers and tweeters in the master bath ceiling!

In fact, all of the existing hardware and faucets (which were 20 years old) had been spray painted white. Now, I’m all for painting almost everything white, but JUST DON’T.

Serene French country cottage style bedroom with Stikwood Hamptons accent wall and white oak flooring. #hellolovelystudio #bedroomdecor #europeancountry #frenchcountry #frenchnordic #whitebedrooms #stikwood #hamptons #serenedecor
Lamps: PARIS IRON GATE LAMPS, RH (sand linen shades lined in gold); reclaimed wood on wall: Stikwood (Hamptons), bed and tables glazed with diluted Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter…certainly cottage lovely indeed.

What is the style of the home?

Modern with lofty ceiling heights and openness, yet also traditional with design elements echoing the past. It feels like a contemporary California cottage in the woods with plenty of windows to enjoy the woodland creatures and trees. River rock accents the courtyard and attached garage, and the exterior was designed humbly and simply to fit its woodsy context (despite the neighborhood’s fancier homes!).

My casual, rustic, unfussy, white, French inspired style dictated our direction for the interiors. We kept it simple, and where possible, used natural materials to stand the test of time. Main influences are Pamela Pierce and Brooke Giannetti.

There aren’t glossy, polished, shiny, fancy, newish finishes since I’m always after a timeless tranquil look that leans toward rustic yet refined European sensibilities.

Belgian linen chaise and antique sideboard from Belgian in our European farmhouse inspired living room - Hello Lovely Studio. #hellolovelystudio #livingroom #europeancountry #belgianlinen #interiordesign

Louis style French chairs, Belgian linen, and Swedish style painted furniture are a few of my favorite things, so you’ll see influence from those design elements.

Rustic White Farmhouse Accent Wall

An ugly wall in our bedroom became a design feature when we added reclaimed pine peel and stick wood which I still love! It took us one evening (about 3 hours) to do this entire wall…how bout that!?!

European Country Style in the Entry

A Favored Belgian Design Element: Belgian Linen

Oh, this is a fabric I have been nuts about forever! The longer we live with Belgian linen upholstery, curtains, and pillows, the more I’m sold.

It’s not just the color and nubby woven texture of the Belgian linen I admire but how wonderfully durable it is for living. No matter how we abuse the linen, it holds up to everything and continues to look fabulous.

Pure & Bright White Paint Color

To get an idea of how much more bright and light the paint we chose for the interiors is – notice the contrast of BENJAMIN MOORE White in the banner below with the warm greys near it.

Just right white paint colors. Ultimate Guide to Best White Paint Colors! #bestwhite #whitepaint #choosingwhite

If you don’t have access to Benjamin Moore “White” or run into a headache trying to convince a paint associate that WHITE is truly the name of this color, Behr Ultra Pure White is almost identical.

    Your home is so beautiful and so inspiring! I live in a little California tract home in San Diego and Iโ€™m hoping to incorporate your style into our cookie cutter home. I love the pillow that you have pictured in your kitchen area (SCI). Do you have a resource on it ?

      Hi – thanks so much. The pillow is vintage RH – you may be able to stalk eBay for one! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love your home, you have done a great job but can you tell me if your sofa is actually the Fairchild sofa & what do you think about it? Thanks

      Thank you, Betty. No, our sofa is from Restoration Hardware (RH). I will do a post on RH if I can, but I don’t have an affiliate relationship with them and am not sure about my right to post pics of their stock. Sorry about that! The Fairchild sofa is what Sarah Richardson put in her own home, and I just love it (the off the grid farmhouse).

      Hi Carolyn. I sure do. The curtains in our kitchen and my studio are from RH – they are well made, expensive, heavy, and lined. Not sure if you have an RH Outlet anywhere near you – you can find amazing discounts on them there, and don’t shy away from too wide or too long single panels which can easily be cut in half (I have done this many times). Charlotte Reiss of Vivi et Margot uses these in her authentic French farmhouse in France: https://rstyle.me/+AcNiqb2mpPqUsh7Pk9Cl0w Also, the washed unlined Belgian linen curtains I found for our Arizona bedroom (I sold them with the house when we sold it) were found at a Homegoods in Phoenix area.

    Just Beautiful! Where did you find that adorable nightlight in the bathroom. (The lavender one). I just love it and it would be sweet in my master Bath! I think your home is the best in decor as well as looking comfortable and classy!

      Thanks, Shelly. I’ll dig around and see if they are still made – found it nearly 20 years ago, maybe at Macy’s and it’s just a simple silk shade. ๐Ÿ™‚
