French-Style Formal Dining Room Makes Space for Large Dinner Parties
A pair of crystal chandeliers define space for multiple dining tables in this formal dining room, making it the perfect spot for large dinner parties. An elegant fireplace, molding and mirrored wall detail offer the sense of a French-style salon.
Joanna and Chip Gaines have transformed the living room by removing the support header and 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 walls were painted a neutral medium gray with white trim and ceilings.
French Country Kitchen and Dining Area With Stone Wall
A gray stone wall stands out against the kitchen's beige and red toile wallpaper to create a quaint dining space. The elaborate range area with furniture-style ivory cabinets transitions into a more simple dining area with a small table and petite chandelier.
With yellow and blue patterned bedding, an antique-style wooden dresser and an ornate mirror, this bedroom screams French country sophistication. Fresh gray walls and crisp white trim add a stylish touch.
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 dining room is illuminated with a dark 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. A magnolia wreath hangs above a sideboard displaying two lamps and white serving dishes.
Personalized Wall Art in French Country Living Room
As seen on HGTV’s Fixer Upper, host Joanna Gaines created a personalized piece of art for this living room using a metal letter “g” framed with an old screen door. A slipcovered white chair and country blue window treatments enhance the room’s French Country style.

Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines painted one wall a neutral gray and brought in shiplap for a feature paneled wall, matching detail in other parts of the home. A white subway tile backsplash and quartzite countertops add a modern element to the rustic space. Industrial-style shelving made from plumbing pipes and wood planks offer open storage, and a custom kitchen island made from vintage wood contributes style and utility in the kitchen.
French-Inspired Patio With Floral Pillows and Whitewashed Terra-Cotta Pots
Whitewashed terra-cotta pots and ceramic pitchers work together to set the scene. Start out with a few creamy pillows and add to your collection over time. Yellow and blue is a classic color scheme that also feels very French.
