Recently I was asked by a client if I could hire an interior designer to design my home, who would it be? If it was my rustic country estate it would have to be Desireé Ashworth of Décor de Provence. Her design aesthetic derives from French, Swedish and Belgium design which I just adore. Join me today for a tour of Desireé’s rustic cottage which looks like a country home located in the French countryside but it is actually located in Utah.
Reclaimed lumber, natural stone, vintage furniture and treasures from Brambles and Blossoms in Provo, UT, and bold antique lighting fixtures from England and France complement the architecture and rustic charm of this cottage seamlessly.
The palette feels organic and welcoming with hues of pale green combined with warm and cool neutrals. The scrumptious kitchen tile from Ann Sacks adds a touch of shimmer and makes a bold statement going up to the ceiling against the reclaimed lumber. Below, the combination of a bench and chairs at the rustic farm-table is a refreshing change and creates balance backing up to the island and stools.
I am a real fan of the open plan and the lifestyle it creates, using hues from a consistent palette throughout the first floor and wood flooring keeps the flow from room to room. Look closely at the lovely cupboards and you will see the many collections in this home from tinted glass to various pottery.
In love with the herringbone pattern on the dining room floor, a simple change in the floor pattern adds just the right amount of design detail to complement the oversize cupboard and crystal chandelier. Below, not to sound cliche but this bedroom is just dreamy with a monochromatic palette and stunning iron bed featuring an upholstered headboard.
This French country home is just exquisite, if you connect with her style visit Desireé’s previous home, an elegant estate with country charm featured here at House of Turquoise one of my personal favorite blogs.
