It‘s no secret, I am totally francophile. I love just everything about France, its landscapes, food, people, culture, language, everything. So, it‘s not surprising that I‘m a big fan of decorating any home, small or big, in the French Country Style.
Unforgettable for me was one day the discovery of a wide lavender field in Provence, South France. That overwhelming view and the scent I will never forget.

Luckily we can recreate that unique French Country feeling with just adding a couple of decor items or furniture to our homes.
While I lived in Switzerland I visited France very often, was in almost every corner of this beautiful country. And I must say, wherever I stayed, the French interior style never disappointed with its unique peaceful appearance.
This is what makes the French Country Style so interesting for every home, even the tiniest ones. You can add it to your RV or Camper, to your tiny house of course and small apartment – and it almost calls for this interior design style for a houseboat.
Even a small console table can fit into every small space and add that certain French Country style look. And speaking of French Country style furniture, their whitewashing technique makes every piece more fascinating. Whitewashing is kind of the trademark of French Country style when it comes to furniture – but not only furniture. People also whitewash brick walls, planters, headboards to create in every room of their homes that great impression that French Country style can provide.
The French Country style creates a feeling of comfort. Whatever you choose, a bunch of lavenders, a French Country style runner or a console table, it will look simple yet very elegant. What other interior style can provide this combination of taste and comfort? It‘s a timeless style, no question about that.
Where would you add a piece of French Country style in your tiny home? You might find an idea among the following pieces.
Artificial Lavender Bouquet with 8 Bundles
- 8 large artificial lavender flowers (vase not included)
- Each bundle measures: 14.5″ to 16.5″ long
- Life-like faux lavender flowers
- Made of plastic
They may be artificial but I am very pleased with how my little project turned out. Very reasonably priced. Pleased with this purchase.
Outstanding product. I was able to divide the bunches into two arrangements. I added a couple of drops of lavender oil into each one and you cannot tell they are artificial! I am thrilled with this purchase and would highly recommend them to anyone!
They are very pretty and I made a small arrangement right away. They are easy to work with and the wire in the stems makes it easy to move and shape.

I have now had this rug for 2 months and I just love it. The colors are perfect and the design gives such a cool feel to the room. I also think the quality is good for the price. Doesn’t shed.
I was nervous to order this rug but I’m glad I did. It’s larger than I expected it to be and sooooo much softer. It looks and feels great and seems to be of good quality.
I’ve had it almost a month now and it still felt comfortable to walk on. I am definitely consider buying a bigger one for my living room.

Nice piece for the price. I need a small table to hide the size of my refrigerator and this was the perfect size. Husband assembled it in a few minutes. It goes well with my furniture. Happy with piece.
Love this piece! I would say it’s more light grey then whitewash but it works perfectly for my decor. Perfect entry way table!
For the money, great little table. I have this at the end of my hallway with a lamp on it and a mirror over it. Looks nice.
