Home Tour - French Country Inspired



If you love French style homes, you will love this French country inspired home.


Details vary, but French-inspired homes are distinguished by these distinctive accents:
arched doorways; multi-paned windows; balanced, symmetrical proportions; brick exterior (also stone or stucco); steep roofs; tall second-story arched dormers; and porches with substantial balustrades. 


This home has it all, beginning with beautiful arched, multi-paned windows and doors.  


The exterior looks very nice with the lime-washed brick finish and wrought iron details.


Aren't these doors gorgeous?


Wood floors are an important element of the French look.  These beautiful wood floors throughout the home add a warm, cozy feeling in relation to the scale of the rooms.



The repetitive use of arched doorways in this home creates a lovely, graceful transition from room to room.


I love the row of French doors opening to the patio.


The simple lines in this kitchen reflects a casual and clean look - a little more modern that a typical French kitchen, but I really love it.



A butler's pantry off the kitchen provides a nice staging area and extra storage.


I love the marble basketweave inset on the floor.







Shutters (straight lined) are another important element of a French country home.


One of my favorite aspects of this home is the outdoor living space.  This patio is very beautiful and functional.  I would want to spend as much time outdoors as indoors.



This home was built by Castle Homes. You can find for from this builder here.


Warmest regards,
