In this post you’ll find creative farmhouse decorating ideas for the mantel and more! And while I freely admit that I don’t live in a farmhouse, I love the simplicity of design.
My husband and I were just discussing over the weekend how some of the favorite places that we have had to spend time visiting in the last couple of years have been farmhouse style homes…in France! Yes…a treat and you can see one of them HERE.

On a grey day I pulled out some greys (or do you say GRAY?) and set up a simple French farmhouse style mantel. I was so inspired by THIS HOME that I had the pleasure of visiting in France and there weren’t very many objects around, so you soaked in the simple beauty of what was displayed.
An old French photo frame, a French zinc bucket and an old dug up bottle with peacock feathers gathered from my walks around the block. Yes, we have wild peacocks here and they shed these beautiful plumes at certain times of the year.
Patina on the old zinc bucket with hydrangeas.
