Creating the Mood

How does one bring a French Nordic kitchen design to life with objects both functional and beautiful?

Surely authenticity plays a primary role in achieving a pleasing look. However, authentic need not require a second mortgage!

While the authenticity of French antiques and ancient European stoneware will enhance the look, you can also create authenticity with elements from: nature, handmade items, hand-painted finishes, and simple finds in the spirit of Nordic French.

More Purposeful Curation

It is easy to see how Americans vary from many European decorators in how they accessorize within their country homes.

More often than not, a European country approach begins with function and purpose. For example, will the accessory or decor prove useful?

Will the item for decoration be regularly pulled into service? Does it lend itself to storage?

Is the decor timeless? Is it made well or from nature? Will it improve with the passage of time?

Pass on Mediocrity & Filler

It certainly seems as though a great number of American country kitchen decorators feel compelled to add interest by crowding shelves and surfaces with objects.

Surely such an approach makes sense when items such as pottery or decorative urns are used daily. However, if they are simply there for “interest,” the look can fall flat.

Collections are wonderful, but sometimes a mass of knicknacks can beome a watered-down, mediocre look lacking quality and character.

Over-styled vignettes can easily begin to resemble a cluttered, dust-gathering antique mall booth rather than a place for the eye to pleasingly rest.

A Nordic French country approach is less concerned with creating eye candy as it is ushering in a peaceful overall mood. A serene design should feel nourishing to the soul.

Nordic French Style Principles

Are there secrets to achieving a timeless, Nordic French inspired decor look?

First things first. If you get to googling, I’ll warn you right now you are bound to land on a few poorly written posts reducing a complex and multifaceted design style to a handful of steps and a paint color palette.

Attention spans are honestly not what they used to be. So many folks want shortcuts, quick and dirty ideas, and the Cliff notes. Additionally, the true experts at the design style are creative types living out the simplicity of the lifestyle and rarely taking videos or profiting from teaching it.

Decor Ideas to Guide

1. BEGIN BY ADDRESSING THE BONES

Beautiful bones and architecture may be the steepest challenge depending upon your kitchen’s age and style (unless you happen to have billions in the bank, are building new, or are lucky enough to live in a farmhouse in Sweden).

Are there existing architectural elements in your space upon which you may be able to build?

A few ideas include: shiplap, beadboard paneled walls and ceilings, upgraded wood doors and trim, plastered walls, built-in cabinetry or shelves, and salvaged architectural elements and flooring.

2. DON’T FILL YOUR SPACE EXCLUSIVELY WITH NEW; MIX IN EUROPEAN INSPIRED VINTAGE & ANTIQUES

Over time, you can collect pieces which possess qualities we have been discussing such as: age, authenticity, patina, purpose, function, and beauty.

Hunting for pieces takes time and is enjoyable! It isn’t something you rush or accomplish in a weekend!

3. ADOPT A PEACEFUL PROCESS TO ARRIVE AT A PEACEFUL INTERIOR

Timeless style with a layered yet spare look takes time and often requires help from a designer or shop owner with a keen eye.

So much of modern American life involves hustling and being perpetually productive; if it’s a peaceful, calm, Nordic French inspired look you’re after, rushing there is not the answer.

A French Nordic Country look is well established and has enduring appeal for good reason.

Its beauty and timelessness spring from its natural connection to the culture and character of France and Scandinavia.

Timelessness Over Trends

Rather than redecorating every decade (or season if you glance at influencers on IG!) as Americans often do, traditionalists in the French or Nordic countryside favor a timeworn look.

If it’s your desire to create a similar look at home, antiques and reclaimed authentic materials are your friend! High quality, rugged, longwearing pieces which increase in value over time can become heirlooms.

“Buy better and buy less” is in order when you’re after rustic elegance, sophisticated simplicity, and timeless design that feels as though it has evolved over years. If a limited budget keeps you from shopping at Chateau Domingue, you can still train your eye by studying the pieces this firm imports.

The Masterful Mix

You cannot miss the refined yet livable quality of traditional European country or French Nordic designed homes where a masterful mix of old and new feel both soulful and interesting.

Vintage pottery shares space with a modern light fixture, a weathered old farm table, and high quality new linens. Slim steel windows contrast with snowy white painted chairs and cupboards.

Hello Lovely Studio

It’s not easy to score this mix when beginning with a new build where everything installed is sparkling new. But it is possible as you add cozy, aged, authentic, and natural elements to heighten the character and charm.

It should be quite clear by now that a white-on-white tonal scheme may deliver the calm you crave too!

Nordic French Design Essentials

Evolved Elegance

An evolved Nordic French Country look surely demands restraint and patience.

My Petite Maison

Let’s face it. In most cases, patina takes time (although we are getting better at emulating it, yes?).

Collecting takes time. Inheriting treasures certainly takes time. Hunting down the just right pieces may be easier now thanks to the internet, but choosing the proper mix to create a cohesive, timeless design STILL takes time.

Thoughts on Refreshing

You can’t easily “see” where you are going without doing some necessary subtraction first.

Rooms develop character over time as the owner progressively collects, upgrades, and thoughtfully edits. Sometimes, when I feel ready for a kitchen refresh, it helps to simply clear the decks. I can stand back, stare, and slowly bring back favored items, storing or donating what no longer serves.

.

Multipurpose & Flexible

Since most Nordic French and European country spaces are smallish and cozy, traditional and timeless country style leans more toward practicality. For example, without a spacious kitchen pantry, essentials must work as decor and must lend themselves to service in various spaces.

It’s easy to see the beauty of investing in fewer yet higher quality pieces which will work hard no matter the room in which they live.

Organic Elements

The French love their gardens and bring fresh flowers inside to decorate the home, arranging blooms quite casually. Fresh is best, but these can be a placeholder when fresh is not available:

Similar to fresh herbs and ingredients elevating recipes, flowers have a way of elevating the “everyday.” European lifestyle sensibilities never cease to inspire if you look closely at how they influence everyday living, enjoyment of meals, and appreciation for fine art.

Weathered Patina

French Nordic style celebrates: age and tradition, scratches, rust, and signs of wear! Shiny new, stained, or lacquered finishes frequently fall flat when paired with antiques and vintage pieces which have patina-ed beautifully. Even aged rugs work better in such settings.

Romantic Lighting

The sparkle of crystal from a chandelier can juxtapose beautifully with more rustic and rugged furniture.

The finishes of light fixtures tends to be weathered wood or aged metals so antiques always look more beautiful than new examples.

Pale & Lovely Palette

I love the pale palette often employed in Nordic French and European country homes. Bright whites, faded creams, putty greys, and quiet blues tell a story about: limited natural light, the countryside, understated beauty, and tranquility.

A Light Touch

What does it mean to style effortlessly or with a light hand? I have already discussed over-cluttering shelves with filler, but there is certainly more to it.

Nordic French Country style celebrates wrinkles in fabrics, flaws in objects of all varieties, and imperfections related to furniture and finishes. A country house lends itself to more casual living than a house in the city where more formal living occurs.
