A few years back, we peeked inside a home for sale in Queen Creek, AZ (where we may retire) designed with nods to a modern French interior design aesthetic. Today, we’ll revisit that lovely home since the decor changed and there were additional modern French interior design elements to notice. Also, MAKE YOU SURE TO WATCH the youTube house tour toward the end of this post of a freshened traditional home. You’ll get an interior design lesson that may be just what you need!

Luxurious White Marble Kitchen With Gold Accents
Here’s a similar gilded iron lantern pendant for a French look:
Here’s a glance back at the kitchen when the home was on the market in 2018:
Which seating do you prefer?
While I haven’t sourced those leather track arm counter stools yet, I was reminded of this dreamy stool option:
I have always liked these inexpensive vegan leather stools when you’re after modern style seating in a yummy color:

The dining room formerly looked like this when the home was previously on the market:
Gilded Design Details in a Modern French Home
You can’t miss the shimmers of gold throughout the interior design. I think I may need these in my life:
I have one of these slipcovered dining chairs (below) that I use in a guest bedroom. And those sconces on the builtins!!! They may be my favorite gilded detail of all. I recognize them as hailing from Thomas O’Brien’s Elizabeth collection.
In fact, I somehow miraculously found the gilded iron and quartzite Elizabeth chandelier for our new kitchen. Here’s the sconce:
Gotta save up serious pennies for these babies! If you think the Elizabeth collection looks amazing in photos, good heavens, you should see it in person!
It is the most beautiful lighting I have ever owned and makes me feel like a queen. While high end and expensive, I did not have to pay full price since I bought the chandelier from an estate. I have no idea how anyone could part with it, and I somehow brought this HEAVY beauty home myself.
The gold chandelier was the starting inspiration for our kitchen renovation, and I then purchased Darlana gilded iron mini lanterns I showed you earlier this week and on this mood board:
The mini lanterns are ones I had only seen in bathrooms and halls, but they are just right above our kitchen island since it isn’t monstrous.
The classic single sconce on the board above is what we put in the powder room, and I’ll share that soon if I can get a decent photo. I’m sort of hopeless when it comes to rooms without natural light. They look so lifeless, don’t they?

It’s a lovely house, but I don’t see a single thing in it that is French. I have been in many homes in France, in various regions, some old, some new. None of them look like this. French people would call this a contemporary American home!
Yes – I hear you – and this is another one of those semantic things. The architecture on the outside, the pale color palette in most of the interiors, and the light wood floors are all considered French inspired. ‘Modern home in France’ would look decidedly different, but in terms of how homes in the USA are marketed, Modern French makes sense to a lot of buyers who aren’t looking for materials sourced in Europe or French antiques. Remember when interiors were simply ‘country style’ before the marketing picked up for ‘farmhouse.’ Same thing that drives purists cray cray! Awesome topic for a blog post and sorry if this drives you nuts!
I agree with Gail in that the home does not have French bones , nor decor inside. It is a beautiful home but more American than French.
I did love the video and interview! The decorator did a wonderful job of bringing together a traditional aesthetic with the needs of a young family. It has all the trademarks of traditional design but is not stuffy, quite the opposite.
I love it too!
I hope we weren’t too critical. Love your blog!
Not at all! I don’t blame you at all – I went with modern French because that is how the home is being marketed not because I am branding it that. Have you noticed that sometimes I’ll call our home a European country cottage, other times a French Nordic home, a French inspired modern farmhouse…and a lot of folks call our house modern Belgian or modern French. hahahahaha – talk about keeping things loose! 🙂
It’s great artistic. So thank you for visiting our website
This is absolutely gorgeous! American or French, it is welcoming and elegant. I love the home and would love to live in it.
It truly is! Thanks for reading!
