If you like French interiors, you’ll be in heaven when you see this home. But if you think French interiors aren’t for you — if you feel they usually are too formal — well, then this home is what you probably need to see to change your mind. This French inspired home mixes traditional lines with refreshed new takes on French design.
According to the designers from YAWN Design Studio Inc., everything started with the homeowner request for muted and neutral tones. From there, a timeless and elegant home was beautifully crafted.
“Floor-to-ceiling vista windows allow vast quantities of daylight into the main rooms of the first floor. Shadows naturally highlight the panel moldings, plaster details and special touches. The neutral color palette of the background was selected so as not to obstruct your eye as you make your way through the spaces. The one exception was the use of American black walnut in the Living and Dining rooms. The dark floor allows a moment of refuge before entering the remaining areas throughout the first floor. This use of contrast is found once again as you ascend the stain grade treads in the fully paneled staircase vestibule to the second floor bedrooms.”
French interiors never looked so beautiful and you’re about to experience it.
French Inspired Home
This French inspired home is inspiring in every aspect — the architecture, the decor — everything was done with a great attention to detail and I am sure you will notice the quality of every element chosen for this place.
The paint color is “Wickham Gray HC -171 by Benjamin Moore”.
French Living Room
Arches and millwork are found everywhere in this house. They add so much to each space.
French Dining Room
As you probably know by now, I always prefer round tables in dining rooms. They bring people together and make the space feel more personal.
The chairs are by Hickory Chair.
This French kitchen is a dream! I always try to incorporate a coffee area in the kitchens I design for my clients. This small table with the French chairs is perfect for that.
The color palette is neutral but not boring. It has a calm feel, and it’s charming in every detail.
The cabinets are a custom color by Downsview Kitchens in Juno Beach, FL.
Open shelves are made of white marble, like the countertop.
Everything is inspiring and perfectly done in this space. Notice the unique arch separating the family room from the kitchen.
The family room feels less formal with its French-country approach.
Café au Lait
Who wouldn’t like to have this family room, right? It’s stylish but also, very inviting. Anyone can feel comfortable here.
The beams are clear cypress.
It’s impossible to not fall in love with this sunroom. I honestly love everything here!
The floors are a honed limestone in a random pattern with tumbled edges.
French Eating Area
The eating area is comfortable and minimalist. Great chandelier and chairs.
Perfection can be found in this powder room. Every element complement the next in a surprising way.
Millwork & Floors
Fabulous floors and woodwork.
The architecture and millwork are spectacular.
This bedroom is incredible!
The bed is the “Loire Canopy Bed” by Niermann Weeks.
Timeless finishing are combined with striking architectural details in “his” bathroom.
The cabinets are maple with a custom glazed finish.
Her bathroom is elegant and ultra-feminine.
White marble is found on the floors, bath and courtertop.
This bathroom have some unique details and I always enjoy seeing spaces that have something original. Notice the beautiful vanity and the designs on the cabinets. Isn’t this bathroom amazing?
So, what do you think of this house? Do you have a favorite room? Let’s talk!
How are you doing today? Did you have a good time here? I hope you did… I also hope you had a good weekend. It was busy around here, I did so much around the house and even managed to bake a chocolate cake with my daughter today. I am craving so much chocolate lately! It’s probably the weather… it’s getting colder, rainy, just like early Fall should feel.
So, what’s on your plate for this week? Well, I am not sure if you remember, but if you read my blog since the beginning of the year, you might recall that I ended-up at the hospital in March, almost having a surgery that actually never happened. Thank God it turned out that I didn’t have to have a surgery at that time, but we’ve scheduled a hospital procedure, followed by an endoscopy for this Tuesday.
I am not feeling scared, but of course it’s never fun to be at the hospital, right? I am hoping to be back home at the same day, but I will have to slow down a little after that. For this reason, I’ll be working some extra hours to prepare all the posts for you for the entire week. I will also keep you posted about how everything is around here, ok?
I know this is “simple”, but prayers are always welcome in my house!!! So, send them my way! 🙂
I wish the same to you! Health, Love, Life and Wisdom.
Let’s all have a very blessed and positive week!
