French farmhouse decorating is widely regarded for its elegant simplicity. When referring to the French farmhouse look, many mean the look of farmhouses from the Provencal area of France rather than the other rural areas. The another wonderful thing about French farmhouse decorating is that accessories and accents don’t have to cost a fortune, and an eclectic mix of those things you love is perfect. The airy rooms of a French farmhouse reflect an elegance created by carefully chosen household items and soft, natural colors. Elegance is created by a spare, clean look as well. Glass and wrought iron touches are common, such as a white wrought iron bed frame in a simple bedroom, or a wrought iron chandelier over a painted kitchen table. Off-white linen sheets with hand embroidered initials are a classic French country touch. Floral fabrics in cotton or linen, or homespun all add to the general elegance of French country.
