I’m definitely a kitchen lover; it’s my absolute favorite room in the house. And I also adore French style. So putting the two together is absolute perfection to me! French farmhouse kitchens is a look that I’ve always gravitated to. It’s a little more rustic in style. Rather than just echoing “French Country” like mine and many other kitchens do, these either are actual farmhouse kitchens or look like they could be right in the middle of Provence.
Of course, French farmhouse kitchens do vary but some things they usually have in common is rustic elements such as wood beams, fire-burning ovens, and raw wood. In addition, they often have no upper cabinets and/or mixed and matched cabinets so that the kitchen looks like it’s been created over time. And, they are often not white! I know, I know, I’m going against my “white kitchens only” mantra! But for this level of beauty, I’ll make an exception;) And I’ve noticed if they are white, it’s usually not a stark white but something a little softer.
It wouldn’t work here in my suburban house and I feel strongly about decorating true to the architecture you live in, so until I have more property and some kind of farm (French or otherwise!), a French farmhouse-style kitchen will just have to be something I dream about! And dream is what I’m gonna do…..

Seriously probably my all-time favorite kitchen. That hood, those antique lanterns, the art casually scattered around. And it’s white too! Perfection! Via House Beautiful.
