The owner of this French Country home wanted to redesign her house to better fit her girly style, so she added some bold, stylish pieces to her living room. The milk-white deer head, the pink chair, animal hide rug and clear coffee table make a unique statement in the space, while the traditional fireplace, nude canvas chairs and elegant sconces keep the classy tradition of the French Country style alive in her home.
Beamed and Vaulted Living Room with Stone Fireplace and French-inspired Design
A beamed and vaulted living room decorated by Georgia designer Sally Draughon features a stone fireplace, double gold chandeliers, a monochromatic palette, provincial furniture with a whitewash and accessories such as glass obelisks on the mantel. The home served as the 2017 Design House for the Historic Macon Foundation.
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.
The French Country-style family room features windows or French doors on three sides of the space that open up to the wraparound garden and ocean view. The garden is filled with edible plants and show flowers, including cutting beds and climbing roses, citrus trees and lavender bushes, grape vineyards and raised vegetable beds.
This lively living room boasts a French country vibe with colorful accents, like the modern art above the sofa and zigzag area rug. A natural wood plank ceiling features metallic track lighting, while a pine tree next to the sliding glass door offers a festive Christmas touch.

Neutral French Country Living Room with Whitewashed Fireplace Surround
The real show piece in the new living room is the newly designed but old-world inspired fireplace. The surround was built out using vintage bricks and covered in white mortar for a whitewashed and textured finish that makes it look as if it had been there for generations.

The wood beams in natural finish and the simple but elegant furnishings provide contrast and give the room a whole new life.

The lumber specialist estimates that the tree from which the lumber was milled was 250 to 300 years old when it was cut down.
