Touring a French Farmhouse

GUESS WHAT. I toured a French Farmhouse at the Portland Street of Dreams just recently and I LOVED it. 
I knew you all would too... so the very next day that I came home I started writing this blog post!
I am so excited to show this house with you all!
It is like... Chip and Joanna (Fixer Upper) meets some French Country.

Don't you all love this??? I knew I would love this house when the first thing I saw was a cow painting.  I am very certain the sconces on the fireplace are these.

You may notice in the corner the Darlana pendant that I wrote a whole blog post about

Love the dining room table, chairs, and chandelier! I am certain the chandelier is this one from Aidan Gray. Edit - correction, was informed the chandelier is from RH, so I suspect it is likely this one. I actually own the dining table - it is this one.
Blue velvet is a "thing" now.  Notice it is incorporated on the couch as pillows.

LOVE the wall sconces. They are the Darlana sconce pendant.
A different view of the dining room...

How CUTE is this pantry? Love the shiplap and the barn door! 
I liked this pantry - the color palette is really pretty. I like the little drink fridge and the open shelves!

Moving our way into the family room and the kitchen!
Fixer Upper lovers will adore this! Isn't super on trend???
What I thought was interesting was the use of mixed metals - the sink faucet is brushed nickel whereas the cabinet hardware is an aged/antiqued brass.
I love the grey cabinet on the right. The paint color on that cabinet hutch is Sherwin Williams Dorian Gray 7017.

Don't you love the Lacanche Range??

I love this little vignette below! Notice the back splash - it looks like painted brick but I think it is actually tile that looks like brick. I really like it and like how it is a little different than the subway tile that we see everywhere.

I thought the fireplace surround with the chevron marble was pretty. 
Here is a picture from the interior designer looking at the family room from the other direction - it was roped off so we couldn't go over there.
Now, how lovely is this hallway??  It is the mudroom - with the garage on the right, exit on the left, and the sliding barn door is the powder room.

Here is the powder room... thought it was kinda cute with the subway tile going up the wall. 
This flooring material was interesting. It is from Ann Sacks. As for the laundry room, I like the white cabinets with the grey counters. I think I'm going to do that! 
Now walking into the master suite... isn't the ceiling cute?

The master bathroom looks like a nice place to relax...
The sink faucet is from Kohler. 
Oh look, a view from above!

There was a cute fire pit and BBQ in the backyard!
Oh, and a pool of course! 

A little tour of the guest house...
Wood was used as the counter top material. While I think it looks neat I know that it would warp and show rings from glasses. 
Oh, forgot to mention that the floors in the house are French pine from Fp Bois.

Now, the outside of the house is not very French farmhouse. It is more like a house you would find in the Hamptons. 
Oh, I forgot to include this from the laundry room.

The Street of Dreams this year included 5 houses surrounded by a vineyard. Below is the club house -made to look like a darling barn! 
 The house we just toured was built by Stafford Homes and Land. The Interior design was done by The Urban Coop. This house was 8200 sq ft.

  1. So pretty and so modern! I love the grays.

  2. This farmhouse is amazing. Loved every corner of this beautiful house. Fireplace with corner storage ideas is fabulous. From bedroom to swimming pool everything is spectacular.

    1. Yes, agreed! I love this house, wish it was down here so I could buy it! ha!

  3. Wow that is absolutely beautiful and loved every single picture!! Please come share this at our blog hop we have Wed- Sun

  4. Hi Angelina, Thanks so much for the tour. I love home tours; we should be getting some soon here in Denver as cooler weather arrives. My favorite thing was the little guest cottage and that round coffee table. Would you happen to know if it is new and, if so, where it's from? I think a big round table would work better in my small living room. Hugs,

    1. Pat, I do not know who makes that cute little table but I suspect it is new because I didn't spy any antiques in the house. The interior designer was The Urban Coop you could contact them and ask!

  5. LOVE, love this house Angelina! I was so sad when I realized it wasn't here in California - I was all set to go visit! It's truly amazing the influence that Joanna Gaines has had in a relatively short amount of time! I feel like it could've been done by her!

    Hope your house plans are going well- can't wait to see that when it's finished!


    1. I wish California had some sort of Street of Dreams type show but I don't know of any. Do you know if there something similar in California? Seattle used to do one but they stopped in 2007. Anyway, it is interesting about the Joanna Gaines influence! I think her style just appeals to a lot of people as it is a little shabby chic, a little modern, a little Frenchy, and then farmhouse as well.

  6. Such a beautiful home! Thanks so much for taking us on the tour with you
    and for sharing at AMAZE ME MONDAY!

  7. What a fabulous house! Thank you so much for sharing it. I really enjoyed the sources that you included. I think the kitchen was my favorite. I wish a Street of Dreams tour would come to my city. We haven't had one in years.

    1. I'm glad you liked the sources - I tried to include as many of them that I could find! I wish the Street of Dreams was at more cities in the US!

  8. Such a beautiful home! Thanks for the tour!

  9. What a house! I'm ready to move right in! Just letting you know I'll be featuring your house tour on Best of the Weekend tomorrow night!

  10. What a gorgeous home! I love that look of casual elegance. Just lovely!

  11. even more beautiful in person. The chandelier however is from Restoration Hardware. :)

    1. oh it is! It looks exactly like the Aidan Gray one! But the RH version is much cheaper!!!

  12. Love this home! Any idea what countertops they used in the kitchen?

  13. Oh gosh that fireplace is the fireplace of my dreams!

    1. Isn't it so lovely? Thanks for stopping by and commenting!
