Vintage Home – Simply French Market Tour

Vintage home – Simply French Market tour in today’s post with a home combining farmhouse, shabby chic and French styles. 

With a love of all things vintage, Terri from Simply French Market has recently moved into this 90 year old home. I’ve known Terri for sometime now on Instagram (visit her here – Simply French Market) and she is a fellow Florida girl that is a transplant from New England. Her family fell in love with this vintage home and it’s been fun watching the transformation in progress. The kitchen is my favorite room so far and I have definite stove envy!

Terri said “we had no plans on moving but a Sunday drive changed everything!  This home reminded both of us of home.  New England that is!  We moved to South Florida 22 years ago (the cold got the best of me). Most homes around here lack the character that I didn’t even know I missed until I saw this one”.

Vintage Home Kitchen

Terri is a collector and has some wonderful collections of vintage pieces picked up over the years. Every room in her home boasts a vintage chandelier, sometimes in multiples. The stove area is accented with vintage corbels and as you can see up above, shabby chic decorative appliques have been added.

A romantic at heart with lots of flowers whenever possible and whimsy with gold bees on the cabinet knobs. In this vintage home, she does it her way…juxtaposing white with rustic wood and elegant gold.

Of course there is a farmhouse sink sitting under the window to make washing dishes have a view! The brick floors add another element of vintage character and depth.

Before we go further into Terri’s home, she is a talented online shop owner of Simply French Market selling handmade ruffled creations. You can tap on any of the images below to shop my affiliate links on her shop…which is truly fabulous!


Next she shares her dining area…so let’s head on in. I apologize in advance that the images are a little small, but they are from her smartphone. Nonetheless there is so much light in these rooms filled with vintage pieces and that is evident!

Vintage Farmhouse Dining Room

Terri says “It was built in 1929, 2 stories, 2 fireplaces, a large porch, original glass door knobs, 2 claw foot tubs and original wood floors!  I had found my diamond in the rough (and that it was)”.

You don’t need to have a huge budget when designing a room with vintage pieces. A farmhouse table and why not add a mingle of chairs for character. Since Terri’s home is predominantly white, a cheerful tablecloth can add a color pop when desired.

“We spend 10 months, every weekend and every chance we could to work on it.  We did lots of the work ourselves (no left the wall removal for the professionals) every wall was either ship lapped, shingled or wallpapered.  It was definitely a labor of love”.

Vintage Home Living Room

“We have now been in for 6 weeks and it’s finally coming together!  To me it was in the details.  I made sure each room had something that was special to me added.  I have a soft spot for whites and woods and no particular one style.  I’d have to say it’s a bit Farmhouse, Shabby and French throughout”.

Remember…these home tours are real homes and not designer homes, so you can take any inspiration that moves you. I hope that you gain some ideas and please visit Simply French Market on Instagram and her Etsy shop!

  7. Hi Janet,
    I have bought several items from Terri. She is so talented and her work is so beautiful.
    Have a great holiday weekend.

  8. There should be a law against anyone having a stove that gorgeous! And that’s all I have to say about that!

    1. Haha…I secretly covet a stove like that. It’s not a secret now though!

  9. Adrienne Cole says:

    Love everything about this beautiful house….but I am sooooooo in love with the mantel in the living room. Do you know what stain was used???? It is perfect!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Hi Adrienne…I’m sorry, but I do not know. Wish I could be of help. Happy weekend!

  10. Do you know who makes the stove? It is gorgeous!

    1. Unfortunately I do not know, but it is likely French or Italian Penny

  11. This is one of the most beautiful homes I have ever seen! I love every room but her kitchen is to die for!

  12. I absolutely love everything about this house! The brass teapot caught my eye though and am wondering if it is available anywhere? Thank you for the beautiful tour!

  13. So so beautiful. Thanks for the tour. I have been looking for forever for floor tiles like the two tone ones in the dining room. Will you share the brand and color names? Need them for my kitchen. Oh, and the tile behind the stove. It’s amazing. Could it be tin? Thanks again.

  14. Stunning home! All her creations are so dreamy! Thanks Janet!

  15. Susan Krauss says:

    So beautiful! I love the flooring in the dining room and what I believe is the April Cornell tablecloth. So fresh and pretty!

  16. I own that stove, but a smaller, standard size. The brand is ILVE and its made in Italy. That version is the Nostalgie version and it comes in a ton of colors and sizes. I love mine and its the focal point of my kitchen as well. Ilve stoves are not as nearly expensive as the top French stoves but still, it took me a while to save for it. Its beauty is worth every penny I saved, I have the natural gas and honestly it cooks and bakes like any natural gas stove… your buying the ‘look’. (They also sell electric and convection too).

  17. And one more comment, that brass tea kettle or something very close to it, you would be shocked to learn that Home Depot sells them online – in a ton of different styles and manufacturers. Old Dutch is a very old tea kettle brand…take a look- the brass is gorgeous.

      Thank you so much for the lovely tour. I just love all the white.

  18. Ann Drayton says:

    Oh my gosh! This home is better than Fixer Upper (and I love that show)!

  19. She has a beautiful shop on Etsy. I’ve purchased several items and love them so much. This brick floor is awesome, but everything else speaks to me too.

  20. That stove has me re-thinking of how I want to create our stove hood. Lovely! The copper add-ins on that white decor is perfect! Wonderful inspiration Janet!!

  21. Seeing Terri’s mostly white home made me fall in love with shabby chic again. Thanks for the inspiration.

  22. My heart be still. Such a beautiful home. Everytime I see a chandelier, I shed a little tear because my chandelier accidently got sent to the thrift store when we moved to a smaller home. By the time I discovered it, it was too late. I just hope someone is enjoying it. Even though I’m in my 80’s, I still enjoy decorating and love to see other homes.

    1. Oh that is such a shame Sharon! Glad that you enjoyed this home tour though

  23. Shingled on inside walls, is this special shingles? I am intrigued. Thank you.

    1. Honestly I’m not sure…but it’s an old home Diana and maybe they repurposed from another area?
