I have yet to tire of beautiful
French farmhouse style whether
it presents as an authentic homestead
in Provence or simply in a timeless
and tranquil spirit outside of France.

I hope you'll enjoy this collection of lovely moments,

If you have been following the decor inspiration
journey on Hello Lovely, then you'll know my infatuation
endures with farmhouse style decor
and its many interpretations.

While I'm partial to French-inspired, traditional
yet modern, timeless, tranquil, and romantic
elements of farmhouse style, there are plenty of
other creative riffs on farmhouse, including
industrial, minimal, American primitive,
eclectic, and beachy.

It's all those nuances and variation that keep me
interested and engaged when it comes to
peeking inside beautiful homes with French
farmhouse style and modern farmhouse decor
represented on the web.

What you'll discover in this collection of inspiring
French farmhouse decor ideas is that some of the
moments aren't even from farmhouses!
My own current home is a contemporary style home,
and our prior home (see the dining room shot below)
was a European manor style home.

French farmhouse style interiors feature a mix
of country warmth, sophistication, and simplicity.
The decor is not singularly informal, but it's
never too fussy, loud, or froufrou.

  1. Hi Michele,
    What are you trying to do to us out here???? Drive us totally insane? I'm drowning in French loveliness with this post and loving every moment of it! Happy Thanksgiving!!

    1. yes! i won't rest until the french farmhouse loveliness renders us all begging for mercy! happy thanksgiving, beautiful holly. xox

  2. I agree. Now I want to redecorate my whole house!!

  3. Hi Michele! What a lovely post, as usual! This is a bit random, but do you know what breed the dog is in the first picture? My best friend had a dog that looked exactly like it over 15 years ago. Her family always wanted to find out what breed she was but since they got her from a shelter they never got a definitive answer. Eventually they gave up the quest, but when my bestie and I were looking over your post she suggested we ask you. I mean, it's worth a shot! Thank you in advance and again, really amazing post! Definitely got my redecorating juices flowing :p

    1. Hi Kinga! Thanks for the kind words. I love that dog! Doesn't she look like a Schnoodle--a schnauzer poodle mix? Wondering if the image may be from Rachael Hale's book about dogs in France. I'll keep searching, and let me know if you discover the breed/mix. :)


Your comments add to the beauty...thanks in advance for your kindness.
