31 Beautiful French Farmhouse Style Moments {Decor Inspiration}

It was time to update this oldie but goodie filled with beauty and sentiments about French farmhouse style. 31 Beautiful French Farmhouse Style Moments {Decor Inspiration} are a comfort as well as a testament to what hard work (and a dream to own a French country home!) can bring to fruition. Also see this post for the full scoop on Vivi et Margot, a shop born after a young family restored their 150 year old French farmhouse near Bordeaux. You’ll find a few photos of my own interpretation of French inspired style as well as designer favorites.

8 Secrets to More Authentic French Farmhouse Decor

“Why are you calling them secrets and what makes you an expert anyway?”

1. Bear in mind where French Farmhouse style originates.

French farmhouse style originates from the lovely landscape of rural France with its hills and valleys. If you can’t travel to the south of France, do spend time online or at the library studying the region to better understand the romance and allure.

2. Genius Mix Masters

There is often a sense of refinement in French Country homes where a mix of old and new feels balanced and sensible, yet also soulful and interesting. Old World charm, collected antiques and family treasures impart a sense of rich character.

3. Mismatch Magnifique

Plenty of Americans still opt for matching furniture sets that fall from favor after a few years. This would never do for a French farmhouse.

A French country approach to furnishing a home is relaxed; the goal is a custom, harmonious and also undone look (appears un-decorated and never overwrought).

4. Refreshingly Frugal and Functional

French farmhouse style is practical since home decor pieces tend to work in a variety of rooms and can be moved around to function flexibly.

Since many furniture pieces are weathered, chunky, and not terribly delicate, pieces get better with age and use. They work hard no matter where they are put into service.

5. Honoring Nature

6. Distress is Not Distressing

Since French Country is a style which imparts a sense of age and tradition, scratches and rust as well as signs of wear are celebrated.

Hello Lovely Studio…in case you admire rustic country antiques from Europe.

Perfectly new painted finishes rarely blend as well with antiques and vintage pieces. The same is also true for rugs. The French don’t shop for a new rug because of fading or fraying since this look is deemed attractive.

Farm sink and French farmhouse kitchen design inspiration…charming indeed.

It is common practice to use something until it is threadbare and beyond useful. In fact, distress and wear from use are honored and exalted in French Country design.

7. Patience, Mes Amis! 

The French typically take a decidedly patient, unhurried, and also not-too-serious approach to home decor.

The look unfolds over time as family heirlooms are passed down through generations.

The French countryside in summer is hard to beat..hello lovely indeed.

8. Trends? Look the other way

Rather than redecorating every decade, the French understand timeless beauty and prefer: timeworn finishes, patina, and character from age.

It’s an elegant, sophisticated look which is never contrived or overthought.

How do the French accessorize in their French Country homes?

Houzz reports French Country home decor accents always have a purpose: “Rarely will accessories in a French country room be purely decorative. They usually have an undertone of usefulness: wall-hung plates that can be pulled down for service, jugs and jars that house kitchen staples, baskets that corral plump produce from the garden.

Open shelving is a natural partner for this look — everyday items enjoy pride of place rather than languishing behind cabinet doors.”

I love timeless…for example, the sort of decor un-influenced by what is currently strutting down the runway. It won’t look silly in a couple of years because it is connected to the past yet remains relevant now.

    Hi Michele! What a lovely post, as usual! This is a bit random, but do you know what breed the dog is in the first picture? My best friend had a dog that looked exactly like it over 15 years ago. Her family always wanted to find out what breed she was but since they got her from a shelter they never got a definitive answer. Eventually they gave up the quest, but when my bestie and I were looking over your post she suggested we ask you. I mean, it's worth a shot! Thank you in advance and again, really amazing post! Definitely got my redecorating juices flowing :p

      Hi Kinga! Thanks for the kind words. I love that dog! Doesn't she look like a Schnoodle–a schnauzer poodle mix? Wondering if the image may be from Rachael Hale's book about dogs in France. I'll keep searching, and let me know if you discover the breed/mix. πŸ™‚

    I was struck by the pair of green boxes flanking the doorway with the posse of geese.
    They were fantastic!

    The dog is a Wire Fox Terrier! Think Asta from the Thin Man movies. The coat is blown out. Many are seen in France. I have owned a few. Rascals!
