Since she was a teenager, my now farm girl daughter has been drawn to French country style and has done a great job making it her own. As it turns out the style lends itself to farmhouse touches appropriate for a new lifestyle on the Franklin farm.
Take a look at how she has combined the two on the screen porch.
At one end is a comfortable sitting area where friends can join for tini time or the family can have a casual meal at the large wooden table. I believe it was a find at Texas’s Round Top Antique Show.
At the other is a swing, something every porch should have for those moments of total relaxation. Throw pillows and the indoor/outdoor rug are in the French tradition and blend nicely with the Farmer’s Market sign.
The daughter and her hubby take pride in their new identity as farm girl
and farm boy. May I tell you that I am jealous of the apple ladder in this photo? One of these days I’m going to have one if I can just figure out where to put it.
With its accessories, this table that once stood behind a sofa, is totally French country.
Well, maybe that’s not true of the candles which the son-in-law cleverly made from spirits bottles. Talk about an easy do-it-yourself project that adds a touch of character!
As this one so clearly shows, porches can be an extension of your personal style.
