French Provincial Furniture Ideas From Photographer Bieke Claessen
The kitchen walls in a traditional French home are often made from brick or stone. Consider trowling some plaster on the walls, or consider making your own stone out of plaster for pennies which can save you thousands when you plan on re-decorating. Dry herbs can be displayed in the kitchen and at the same time fills the air with their smell. Iron has always played an important look in the rustic countryside of France. Consider adding decor with metal elements, such as baskets which can hold linen napkins, faux fruit, or extra silverware. The table is an important part of Provence styled decorating. Painted furniture mixed with raw wood will you complete the look.
Here are some of my favorite picks:

The most important room in the house is the kitchen and the same is said for the French Provencal look. The kitchen is where most of the entertaining is done in the home, so it makes sense to invest in quality furnishings where you spend hours of your time.
