Chapter Three

The French Farmhouse  The French farmhouse… ah, you can just picture it, out in the countryside, among fields of lavender and large shady trees, with chickens wandering aimlessly about the farmyard. But, once inside, you can quickly see that this is no ordinary farmhouse. Far from it. Many of the farmhouses featured here are quite sophisticated and, in fact, as luxurious as they come. A farmhouse is not always about primitive and rustic. It’s a place where large fireplaces spread warmth across hard wood floors, and massive exposed beams reveal the sturdiest of structures. It’s where muddy boots are lined up at the back door, and racks hold jackets and hats that are used outdoors. The French farmhouse look is relaxed, and stylishness is not top of its list of priorities, but somehow, such an approach always seems to result in the best interiors.

Left The library is a personal space, speaking of a love for fine leather-bound books, history, all things equestrian, and comfortable, elegant living.
