French Home Inspiration: Prepare to be inspired!

This winter I’m taking on a few new projects at home that are indirectly related to my travels. While I love travelling around the world most of the year, I’m reaching the point where I want to take some of the inspiration and ideas I’ve found around the world and apply them back at home. So for a couple of month I’m planning to take some “down time” from travel and start to spend a little more time at home on another few passions of mine: cooking ), making things ) and re-designing our country home ().

But before any of you freak out, I will of course still be travelling! I’m just starting to balance my time a little more, turn down back-to-back jobs that require me to fly to the other side of the world, and start to split my time between all of my passions. In particular, I really want to bring home lots of new ideas from my travels and share how you can apply them back at home.

This month I’m setting out to makeover our country home. I live with my boyfriend on a farm in Tasmania in a very old farm house that needs a little of attention. And when I say old I don’t mean a beautiful, old, antique property… I mean a 70s/80s home that contains a lot of brown. Brown wood, brown bricks, brown tiles… so. much. brown.

Personally, I’m more of a light & bright girl in terms of interiors, so I’m setting off to bring home a great deal of inspiration from our trip to France — let the inspiration flow!

We checked in to this manoir in the Loire Valley in April of this year. The manoir has since been restored to its former glory after going through many years of neglect, and I love how they kept the original charm whilst still modernising the property. The playful use of whimsical wisteria completely captured my heart. My plan is to include some wisteria and I’m hopeful it will grow well on our property!

Any truly French home starts with one thing: symmetry. Unfortunately for me, our house is anything but symmetrical… so we’ll be going for a more country style

I’d love to add some stones somewhere in the design of our house… whether it by in or outdoors.

The first room I am starting with is our kitchen – you better start preparing yourself now for the before shots! I’d love to end up with something light, bright, and with plenty of textures to bring it to life and avoid a dull looking kitchen. I’m also fairly convinced we will go for dark wooden floorboards throughout the ground floor of the house to cover the kitchen, dining, living, office and entry rooms.

This gorgeous French country home is more of a dreamy-one-day-possibly-maybe inclusion! If we ever moved and started from scratch, this is the style I would go for.

Aside from the kitchen, the laundry is the other room I really need to get stuck in to Prepare yourself, these before photos are really gonna bring the vision to life for you

Another shot of the Loire Valley manoir we checked in to in April. I love the playful use of purpose – something to perhaps be considered for the guest room!

A photo taken a few years ago on my rip to Beaune, France. This will never be my home as I’ll be sticking to something more realistic… but a beautiful chateau nonetheless!

French country homes are neutral but full of different tones. I love the mix of colours and textures in kitchens.

Another beautiful kitchen with a more elegant touch by using the marble topped bench. I also love the huge sink – something I’ll be looking to include in my own kitchen make-over!

Another sink I love – look at that depth! The gold finishings are typically French but are a great modern touch on the more classic, neutral tones.

One day I’ll tackle the garden – o n e d a y .

More snaps from my time in Beaune.

I absolutely adore open shelving in French kitchens and if I can convince my boyfriend its a good idea, this is the kind of look I will be going for! The splash back gives the kitchen a more bespoke touch – something I’ll also consider when shopping for products to use.

I love the tones in this kitchen – bringing a small amount of colour whilst maintaining the neutral look of a French kitchen. The tiles are also nice – though I think I’m sold on wooden floorboards!

French Home Inspiration: Prepare to be inspired!

Last but not least: a little exterior inspiration for the day I’m finished indoors! Gardens take a lot more time and devotion, so there’s a chance I’ll keep putting it off for a while!

This post resonates with me a lot! My husband and I are building in Hobart and I am exactly the same, absolutely love french interiors!! Our house is more an american style two storey but I have been using that same picture as the inspiration for my kitchen. We picked out our bamboo flooring last night – brushed walnut! Beautiful dark wood. I can’t wait to see some pictures of your renovation!

Looks like it came out of a fairytale!! Feeling inspired after looking at there pictures… if only i had such a big living space to work with haha!

Yahooooo! Glad someone loves French interiors as much as me! Just can’t wait to start demolishing my kitchen and starting again ???? xx

I’ve had to create a new Pinterest board for this because you’ve inspired me so much with this post! Thanks for the inspo Brooke ????

French Home Inspiration: Prepare to be inspired!

These photos are so beautiful, and I’m definitely inspired now! Can’t wait to buy my own home one day ????

Hi Brooke! As an interior designer, this post makes my heart smile! No matter how much one loves being on the road, it’s so important to have a cozy retreat to come home to at the end of each trip!

I give all of my clients the following advice to prevent overwhelm: Work on your home design one room at a time, fully completing each room before you move on to the next. This keeps your mind focused on the task, giving you the rewarding feeling of completion as you finish each room, and build momentum toward the next!

Best of luck on your renovation!

Wow these are stunning! Can’t wait to see what you end up creating in your home =o)

French Home Inspiration: Prepare to be inspired!

These are really beautiful <3 Thanks for sharing

That kitchen. The yard! Everything!

These images are so pretty. There is something so simple yet chic about French architecture that makes it so timeless!

Beautiful inspirations! I hope you’ll share some before/after photos when you’re done with the makeover ????
