French Farmhouse Decor – How To Style It

French farmhouse decorating is the focus of this post. Defining style can be a complex conundrum to many homeowners and often I feel that we over think labels. What’s your own style? Do you crave vintage farmhouse? Do you go crazy over French antiques? Are you a shabby or coastal chic?

How To Style Your Home with Chic French Farmhouse Decorating

I have a confession to make, and it or may not be how you feel…I doon’t believe in following a strict “the designer says” set of rules. I go with what speaks to my heart and if there is one thing that I can’t stress enough is to be that way in your home decor too! Trends my friends ( ;-)) will come and go and if you’ve been around the block a few times like I have you’ll see that. If not and you are in your first home or just starting out you’ll learn that.

My love and my style if I HAD to stick a label on it might be Chic French Farmhouse Decor.

    Thanks so much for the beautiful ideas. Having lived on a farm my entire life, I often laugh at what people call farmhouse style. My family and extended family certainly never adhered to what folks seem to think was our style, I am especially curious to learn about your sofa and would love to have one similar. It meets so many of the criteria I want:
    1 seat cushion
    Upholstered back with no cushions
    Tall enough for the robotic vacuum to go under
    Neutral color
    Sofa length/not settee length
    Supporting legs in the middle

    I have a question about your mantle/fireplace. I can see that you have a fireplace surround. But what is in front of it? It looks like a door or shutter set on its side. And there is either a piece of ornamental plaster or iron work in it. Can you tell me what you have layered?

    Looks amazing!
