A Beautiful French Country Farmhouse Home Tour

Don’t you just love a home tour? I sure do. I am showing your our 1980’s home now renovated into a chic modern French Country Farmhouse.

Hey Friends!

Welcome! I am so glad that you are here. I always enjoy our time together. Do you love a good home tour? When My husband and I were young and craved cheap entertainment, we used to love going to home tours on Sunday afternoons. I loved seeing how people designed their homes. It’s been years since we have done that, but I still love a great house tour. Today, I am showing you A Beautiful French Country Farmhouse Home Tour. Come on, I’ll show you.

When my husband and I drove up to this house, we feel in love before we even drove down the driveway. I knew that this house would be everything that we wanted in a house, with a whole lot of blood, sweat and tears. I love a good home remodel project.

We had just become empty nesters, which is quite the adjustment. We were moving back home to be next to our friends and family after living in another state for eight years. We were so excited. But, then my husband got a great opportunity for a new job in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Wait? What? Isn’t the dream house and project in Oregon? Yep, I remodeled this house from 3,000 miles away. I definitely don’t recommend that. It was oh, so hard. But we had the most amazing contractor to help us. I would fly to Oregon and spend a week with our contractor and friend and we will discuss all of the details for the projects that he would be working on for the next month. I would fly home for one week each month for about a year and a half. The house turned out amazing.

This is our living room. I love the vaulted ceiling and the fireplace. It makes for such a lovely and cozy room. When we bought the house, the fireplace was made from lava rock, which just wasn’t the look that I was going for. To see the “before’ pics and see the full living room remodel, see the post here.

I love how the living room opens up into the dining room. It is really a great layout for entertaining our friends and family.

Our Dining Room

I absolutely love our dining room now. When we bought the house, there was a wall that divided the kitchen from the dining room. It cut off the dining room and living room from the rest of the house and we rarely went in there, except for on the holidays. My dream was to have a large dining room table to seat up to 16 people for a meal. We took down the wall and it opened up the space beautifully. Our dining room table seats ten, then I have a second table that I can put at the end of our dining table. And, voila! a table that seats 16. Nothing makes me happier that to have my house full of family and friends.

The brick floors are my very favorite part of the remodel. We had the bricks laid in a herringbone pattern, which I love. I have also used the herringbone pattern for the backsplash behind my range, as well. The brick floors really give the house a ton of old world character. They are not only beautiful, but they are indestructible. To see the “before’ pics and see the full dining room remodel, see the post here.

My kitchen is my favorite room in the house. It’s where I spent most of my time, and where I keep the chocolate. 🙂 It truly is the heart of our home. It is wonderful to have the kitchen and dining room open to each other, it makes it so much easier when entertaining a crowd.

I love all of the details in here that give it the French Country feel. I replaces all of the lighting in our home with vintage lighting from Facebook Marketplace, Antique Stores or while thrifting. This light fixture is one of my favorites. To see the “before” pics and the full kitchen remodel, see the post here.

Besides the kitchen, the family room is where we spend a lot of our time in. It is a warm and cozy place to spend time visiting or watching a movie. I store the toys for the grand babies in the cabinets in this room. Nothing in our home is too precious, we built it to withstand a beating. Along with the vintage furniture, the hand hewn hardwood floors and the DIY coffee table- the more knicks and dents added to the room-just adds more character. As does the artwork that my grandson scratched into the side of the leather chair while in a time out.

This room has two sets of French doors that open up onto the patio-it’s perfect for entertaining. To see the “before” pics and the full family room remodel, see the post here.

I love this little powder bathroom, it is small, but it sure packs a punch. Not only does it have the brick floors in it, but I bought an antique dresser and made it into our vanity. I also found the perfect vintage lighting on Facebook Marketplace for only $20. It makes me giddy every single time that I see it. If you love vintage, Facebook Marketplace is a great place to shop and it saves a whole lot of money when you are doing a whole house remodel.

When we looked at this house with our realtor, my father in law, we can in from the garage into the laundry room. I was smitten. I loved the size of this room. It, too has the brick floors, which I adore, but it has such great storage as well. I use the laundry room as my butlers pantry as well. It makes it so convenient when I am doing tablescapes. See the post on how I store my dishware here.

If you have to do laundry, you might as well do it in a beautiful room, right? And, if it has not one, but two gorgeous vintage chandeliers it’s even better. I found these two identical vintage chandeliers while thrifting with a girlfriend. My heart started to pitter pat so hard. I knew that I couldn’t go home without them. I decided that I would walk into the store and pretend that I didn’t like them very much, because I wanted to make sure that I could get a great deal on them. I was so afraid that I wouldn’t be able to afford them. When the lady told me that they were only $60 each, I didn’t even bother to negotiate. I knew that I had the best deal ever.

A beautiful Master bedroom ideas

I love walking into the master bedroom now. I love the stone wall paper (See how I hung it here.) I love the wall to wall windows-they look out onto the garden and then onto the valley floor and the mountain range. It is such a lovely view. When I first walked into the room, it needed a lot of work-but I had so many ideas and I just couldn’t wait to get started.

French Country Master Bedroom

This bedroom is just so restful. I love using neutral color palette when designing a room, especially in a bedroom. You should see the “before” pics of this room. To see the “before” pics and the Master bedroom remodel, see the post, here.

And, last but not least is the Master Bathroom. This, too, is a spacious room with the neutral color palette. When we bought this house, the bathtub was huge and dark green and set upon a stage like platform and you had to go up the stairs to get to the bathtub. The bathroom also has vaulted ceilings, which make the bathroom seem palatial. To see the “before” pics and the Master bathroom remodel, see the post, here.

  1. What a fun thing to do on a Sunday afternoon. I just loved your tour, Renae! There is so much to love about your home. The brick floor is my very favorite feature. Your vaulted ceilings and your bedroom windows to the floor are such beautiful features. And I love the laundry room. It is just so stunning. You’ve done such a beautiful job, my friend.

      Renae … it took me a little while to get over here but what a wonderful morning respite. Your home is so lovely … and I adore those brick floors. Swoon. And your laundry room is fit for a queen. Did I get this right … you live in Oregon?! For some reason I thought Tennessee. Oof. I’m losing my mind, obviously. That’s quite a feat to renovate from across the country. We once built a house from two states away. Never again. But your home is a triumph! Thanks for sharing the tour! xo

    Your home is gorgeous! I have to tell you that our house had one room with brick floors and after living with it a few months I had to get rid of it. There was no way to keep it clean. It literally tore up every mop and getting on my hands and knees to scrub it were out of the question. I have had three knee replacements so I can’t get on my knees to clean anything. Just wondering how in the world you keep it clean?!?!

    1. I sweep it often and clean spills as soon as they happen. I really do love them. Hugs to you.

  3. Joanne

    What a beautiful home! I love those brick floors. One of my girlfriends did the same thing in her kitchen/dining room and I love that old world feel of them.

  4. Renae, your home tour is beautiful! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm!

  5. Wow, wow, wow. Absolutely GORGEOUS! I love every single thing, but I think the brick floors may just be my favorite.

  6. Hi friend! This home tour is gorgeous! I have featured this tour on this week’s Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop. Love, love, love! Hope all is well!

    1. Awe, thank you so much my friend. I really appreciate you. I hope all is going well with your sweet babe.

  7. SO BEAUTIFUL! Renae, I think I use the word “beautiful” every time I get a glimpse inside your home, but I just can’t help myself. It’s great to see several rooms at once–thank you for the tour!

    And thanks so much for joining the Grace at Home party at Imparting Grace. I’m featuring you this week!

    1. Yay! Thank you so much for the feature. I really appreciate you. Hugs and blessings to you, my friend.

Beautiful interiors don’t have to come with an outrageous price tag. My style is what I like to call Vintage French Farmhouse, I love mixing decorating styles, especially opposites like the glitz of a chandelier dripping in crystals with a chair upholstered in worn aged leather. Refined, yet not too formal-but, livable, elegant traditional design, adding warmth and vintage elements.
