Creating the Look – French Country

We all know by now that the farmhouse look is perhaps one of the hottest interior design styles out there. With its clean yet rustic charm, this design style has taken over just about every room in the house and then some. But with all that shiplap and farm fresh decor floating around, the homely sense that is supposed to go hand in hand with a farmhouse look can easily be lost. So how do you achieve that warm and cozy design style without falling into the farmhouse fad? It’s easy, try French Country design.

Like the farmhouse style, French Country is all about rustic charm. However, French Country tends to incorporate softer, more natural elements. There is less of a focus on classic palate of white and black and more of an emphasis on warm browns and light pastels. Thick rich woods and soft yellows and blues paired with stone floors and antiqued brass or satin nickel. The overall objective is to create a feeling that is reminiscent of a mid-afternoon bike ride through a sun soaked fields of wildflowers.

So how can you get this look for your bathroom and what kind of vanity should you turn to? For the best French Country style, we suggest these three stunning vanities:


Freestanding Sienna

Wall mounted or freestanding, we think our Sienna vanity perfectly captures the spirit of the French Country style. Finished in a rich wood stain like Normandy, the Sienna contrasts perfectly with a cream or soft yellow wall. The slatted open shelf gives it a light, open feel and is perfect for storage or displaying antique bathroom decor.


Ethan in Harbor Gray shown with toe-kick upgrade

Our Ethan vanity is another great example of classic French Country style. With its shaker style doors and slim legs, the Ethan is simply elegant without being over the top. Paired with satin or antique brass hardware and finished in one of our beautiful wood stains or a classic grey paint, the Ethan is a charming fit for any French Country style bath.


 Taylor in White

Traditional to its core, the Taylor is a timeless classic and hands down perfect of a French Country style bath. Its sculpted feet and detailed sides make it sophisticated without being too ostentatious. Finished in White or Robin Egg paint, the Taylor can make a refreshing addition to any bathroom but is even more impactful with this design style. Its traditional roots lend to the homely and rustic vibe that the French Country style is all about.

We have plenty of other vanities that would work wonders in a French Country bath, full of rustic charm and warmth. Check out our website to see all of our designs and make your cozy bathroom dreams a reality.
