French-Country-Inspired Dining Room With Blue Accents
Blue upholstery, accents and artwork give this neutral dining room a French-country sensibility. The space's color scheme complements the adjacent living room, which also prominently features blue throughout.
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 old cliche "pretty as a picture" cannot begin to describe this gorgeous home in California with landscaping designed by Mark Scott and Associates. Though the look and feel of the exterior appear rustic and unmanicured, the designers set greenery meticulously to a render a pastoral charm and old-world sensibility. Everything about this home is relaxed, warm, elegant and utterly inviting.
Lovely, sublime and elegant all describe this French-inspired home, with Mark Scott and Associates enhancing its charm with their compelling landscape design. Particularly, the small wrought gate that one must enter honors the architectural components of this design style. The address of this beautiful home may not lay in southeast France, but the look and heart of its structure and scenery surely takes one there!
New Furniture and Coffered Ceilings in Elegant French Country Dining Room
New furniture and coffered ceilings transform this space into an elegant formal dining room whose design complements the French Country kitchen. The large window lets in plenty of light to illuminate the space and highlight the design, as seen on HGTV's America's Most Desperate Kitchens.
The mantel and trim work in this master bedroom are kept straightforward, painted in Farrow & Ball's "Pointing" with moldings applied to stimulate paneling. The marble fireplace enlivens two chairs that coordinate nicely with the aqua and white check-patterned carpet.
Stone archways frame views of the pool and cabana beyond, as well as invite cool breezes to filter inside this loggia. Meanwhile, a white table and chairs both visually lighten the room and allow for entertaining guests.

A focal point in this kitchen featured on America's Most Desperate Kitchens, and a key part to its French Country design is the concealed refrigerator. The custom armoire casing is painted in a muted blue with curved, ceiling height molding that softens the look of the kitchen.
