Pink and beige toile wallpaper serves as a feminine background for an intricate cooktop area. A gold backsplash is surrounded by a detailed white range hood while a sparkling crystal chandelier hangs from a beautiful white coffered ceiling. Quaint ladder-back barstools with cushions provide convenient seating in this elaborate kitchen.
Traditional elements meet modern convenience in this classic, white kitchen. Five guests can take a seat at the large, marble kitchen island, and enjoy lots of natural light coming from the oversized windows above the sink. Overhead, mid-toned wooden beams warm up the space, and pair well with the hardwood flooring.
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.
The butler's pantry off the kitchen houses the homeowners' collection of dishes. A built-in desk provides an extra workspace, while open shelves above are the perfect spot to display pottery. Exposed wood beams and a stone backsplash add rustic style to the space.
Eclectic furniture and detailed molding on the ceiling make this apartment distinctly Parisian. A lighted mirror, herringbone wood floor and a distinctive chandelier make this room truly one-of-a-kind as seen on HGTV’s House Hunters International.
The chandelier actually works overtime in this master bedroom, both brightening the space and calling attention to the reclaimed wood ceiling. Meanwhile, a sliding barn door creates a seamless transition to the bathroom.
Natural Materials on Exterior of French Country Estate
The main portion of this French country home and the fence enclosing the courtyard are built from natural stone. The exterior of the private spaces of the home are clad in a contrasting stucco, drawing a visual boundary between public and private spaces, even from the exterior of the home.
Arched glass pocket doors open off the main hall into this warmly lit dining room. The walls were given a dull glaze while the ceiling is highlighted with a pale powder gloss. A collection of antique creamware plates carry out the French country theme.
A skirted vanity table adds to this room's feminine charm, while the antique mirror reflects its sweet bedding. The headboard fabric is repeated on the lampshades. The buffet lamps are made from antique Scottish candlesticks.
To give this beautiful kitchen a custom look, the porcelain tile backsplash was hand-painted. A plate rack over the farmhouse sink is useful and charming, while Craftsman cabinets incorporate a multi-pane window at the top.

A Portuguese chandelier crowns the room, which is filled with French-style furnishings from Silver's own line.
