French Country Modern Farhouse style is an enviable blend of elegance and humble simplicity. Its given credibility by its old-world aesthetic, strengthened by the stability and presence of rustic finishes, and timelessly appealing with refined curves and details. The contrast between details that lean toward the ornate, intricate, and elegant and details that are rough, rustic, and raw is a big part of the style’s charm. Don’t shy away from including an elegant fabric in a space that bears chunky, knobby wood. Show off the scuffs and dings and chippiness of once-elegant furniture. Pair outdoor elements, like lantern-style pendants, in crisp indoor spaces.
It’s not uncommon to see well-worn pieces within this style. Rusted metal furniture, historically scuffed lighting, and paint-chipped pieces provide visual interest and texture, warmth to the space, and a charmingly lived-in feel. Be sure to add depth to any space with a variety of textures, including but not limited to woven baskets, wire baskets, ceramics, wood carvings, and pottery.
