French Provincial Homes
Widely considered to be one of the most loved interior design styles of all time, French Provincial homes exude luxury and style no matter what the era. The origins of this style date back to the 17th and 18th centuries, where furniture makers local to the south of France began to manufacture pieces that were inspired by the highly decorative pieces commonly made in city towns like Paris. In the 21st century, the classic designs of the past mix perfectly with the contemporary layout of modern-day housing design. If you want to explore the idea of creating a living space that blends French Provincial concepts with 21st century living, present your French Provincial house plans to the team at Ravida. Our custom home builders in Melbourne deliver stunning French style homes that truly epitomise luxury.
What Characterises French Style Homes?
Properties considered to be French Provincial in style are characterised as such thanks to specific features distinctive to the style. Generally, a luxury home might be classed as being a French Provincial style house if these elements are central to its design:
- Rustic wood
- Natural warm tones
- Parquetry (an inset work created from blocks of woods set out in a geometric pattern)
- Statement kitchen island
- Exposed beams
- Wrought iron
- Antique Furniture
- Gold accents
These features alone don’t necessarily make a house automatically French Provincial, nor are they exclusive to the style. However, when the elements are combined to work with each other and complement the existing décor, that is when it begins to evoke the French Provincial style.
