Bright orange chairs are bold statement pieces in this French country-inspired backyard. A wood pergola houses an outdoor dining area and effortlessly flows into a sitting area with white patio furniture and stone fire pit.
Fixer Upper hosts Joanna and Chip Gaines transformed this living room by opening up the space, creating a better flow into the dining room. By moving the air conditioner to the attic they were able to open up the hallway behind the wall and move the door from the dining area to the living room. The original hardwood floors were kept and refinished, and a window in the dining room was replaced with French doors.
Pool Views and Access at Back of French Country Estate
Rooms on the second floor of this French country estate all have a view of the pool from their private Juliet balconies. These balconies are covered by overhangs that match the terra-cotta tile roof. From the first floor, large French doors lead out of the common spaces onto the back patio and landscaped concrete pad around the pool.
This light and bright French country bedroom features soft neutrals paired with colorful blue accents, like the bed linens and framed art above the bed. A wood paneled ceiling lends a natural look, while a bright orange desk adds a splash of fun color. A modern brass chandelier finishes off the look of the space.
The farmhouse-inspired kitchen has a large irregular-shaped island with barstool seating at one end. Rustic stone, the same used on the house's exterior, creates a beautiful focal wall around the wood-fire oven.
In this sitting area, a mix of patterns in neutral colors give dimension and interest to the space without being overwhelming. A simple iron and glass coffee table provides a blank canvas for the books and accessories on top.
The elegant dining room opens up through French doors to an outdoor door dining area with beautiful views of the La Jolla, Calif., coast. Exposed wood ceiling beams and an Old World-style chandelier bring a touch of rustic charm to the space, while bookshelves flanking the doors house the homeowners' collection of cookbooks.
Barstools Line Peninsula in French Country Kitchen
The spacious peninsula in this French country kitchen is lined with wood barstools, creating a spot for impromptu dining. On the other side of the island, a cooktop and range hood allow the chef to cook while conversing with guests.
HGTV Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines painted the original fireplace brick white and added shiplap paneling and a natural wood mantel. The living room is dressed with French Country accessories, books and topiaries.
French Country Eat-In Kitchen With Marble Top Island
This light and bright eat-in kitchen features wooden stools positioned around a gray and white marble top kitchen island, creating the perfect spot for casual dining. Modern glass pendant lights hang from the natural wood plank ceiling, while white cabinets and stainless steel appliances finish off the look of the space.
Soft creams and yellows, baskets overflowing with flowering plants and beautiful floral patterns call to mind the relaxed, yet chic style in the South of France. Use a natural sisal or jute rug to let the colors and patterns of your decor pop.
The renovated dining room is illuminated with a metal chandelier and staged with bright, comfortable chairs and a dining table set with blue plates and French country accessories and greenery. The new French doors open to the backyard and offer additional natural light.
Arched French doors and windows bring in tons of natural light, as well as provides beautiful views of the California coast. Traditional furniture in floral upholstery pairs with a classic area rug and hardwood floors to create a comfortable living space.
