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.
When they remodeled an older family home with French architectural details, kitchen designers Marvin Daniel and Brian Pilgrim of KDW Home wanted to give it an open and airy look that still felt in keeping with the style of the home. Roman shades in a French provincial fabric added just the Old World accent the updated space required.
French Style Breakfast Room With Crystal Charm Chandelier and Pattern Cushioned Chairs
Curved chairs give this breakfast room a French influence around a traditional wood dining table with textured edges. A gorgeous chandelier with crystal charms adds a beautiful, feminine element to the room. Plants, fruit art and a fruit centerpiece bring a homey feel to finish the design.
This outdoor dining area features a ceiling fan along with custom-made corbels, new posts and balustrades. The adjacent lush garden features pavers, a fountain and a hammock that results in the ultimate backyard retreat.
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.
Neutral French Country Living Room with Reclaimed Wood Beams
The wood beams in natural finish and the simple but elegant furnishings provide contrast and give the room a whole new life. The beams are from reclaimed wood that came from Sweetwater Mill near Huntsville, Alabama. The lumber specialist estimates that the tree from which the lumber was milled was 250 to 300 years old when it was cut down.
Updated Traditional Country French Living Room Featuring High Exposed-Beam Ceilings
Full of grandeur, this French Country living room features many special elements, including an 18-foot beamed ceiling, clerestory windows, recessed floors and arched doorways. Neutral tones and whites keep the space airy and bright, despite the multitude of furniture and accessories.
Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines removed the wall between the homeowners' dining room and kitchen and installed a natural wood support beam in its place. The 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.
Burnt Orange and Watermelon Pink Furniture Inspired by Yves Saint Laurent Fashion Line
Designer Phillip Silver selected watermelon pink and burnt orange colors that were prevalent in Yves Saint Laurent's 1966 Rive Gauche line for the furnishings in the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2015 living room. The colors add a fun contrast to the view of the backyard and San Francisco Bay beyond.
French Country Dining Room With Fresh Orange Accents
This light and bright dining room features fun orange accents, including a pendant light and striped wooden bench that is upholstered to match the white dining chairs. Festive gold candlesticks and glass sculptures decorate a wooden dining table, while framed photographs create an accent wall.
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.
