French Farmhouse Christmas Decor
Written by Amy Mings

French farmhouse style is all about cultivating a warm and authentic French and farmhouse aesthetic. It has a charming, yet elegant appeal that so many love. Each season, I strive to bring a bit of France to our country life by incorporating natural materials and soft, muted colors. This holds true for French Christmas décor!
