I realize it's sometimes just a name slapped onto a look, but I prefer the feel of these European Farmhouse looks to their American counterparts.

For some reason they feel less contrived to me.  They manage to have the neutrals I love without looking like someone was on a mission to make everything white....

Beautiful but a farce.  Farmhouse and all the chairs are white?  The farmer is not allowed in the house I guess.

I love the European farmhouse look, but I always feel like I want to add a smattering of color somewhere.  Maybe in the kitchen.  I don't like that Christmas-like swag hanging around the window, but I would add some greenery to give it a boost.  Likewise on the stairs.

To me "farmhouse" decorating is creating a great living space in a building that used to be a farmhouse, not necessarily a working farmhouse.  Kind of like making a rustic space beautiful; much like the warehouse spaces I often post about.

They wouldn't work for me, personally but I think most of them are beautiful spaces.

They are beautiful but too formal for me and my family .One thing in particular in these pictures is the floors. I prefer wood flooring in all rooms instead of tile/stone which to me feels cold, physically and aesthetically. I love looking at the pictures though!

They're lovely @faeriemoon, though I often also like American farmhouses, not to be confused with the kitschy stuff often put out there and called a 'farmhouse look'.
