Interior Design Style: French Country

Visions of lavender fields and an old French farmhouse in the countryside with roses around the front porch  invoke a warm, comfy home feeling, but the French country style of decorating can work equally well in bringing a warm, casual feel to your home. I’ve got touches of French country throughout my home, from the wooden beams on a few of my ceilings to vintage milk bottles and wire baskets.Things to look for:

  • open kitchen shelving and chicken wire door inserts
  • white dishes
  • wood counter tops
  • rustic butchers blocks
  • farmhouse (apron) sink
  • vintage wire egg baskets, milk bottles, mug holders
  • long farmhouse table
  • copper pots and pans
  • batten board
  • burlap ticking
  • worn, scratched and dented furniture
  • big working fireplaces
  • linen blue and white fabric
  • primary colors highlighted by black or dark gray
  • striped flounced shower curtains
  • old ladders
  • rusted metal
  • painted plaster
  • beamed ceilings and walls
