Get The Look - French Provincial
July 1st, 2020

Welcome to Your Home of Inspiration’s latest Style Guide! We pride ourselves on our lifestyle shots, so we thought it only right to give you the chance to recreate the looks we’ve achieved with our flooring. From grand period hallways to chic apartment shots, sit back and enjoy as we help you to put together some truly sumptuous styles.

This delightful room set takes its inspiration from French country living, an inviting and characterful look that’s loads of fun to create. The engineered wood flooring is the unsung hero of the shot, coming from UK Flooring Direct’s Galleria Collection, and in keeping with the popular distressed feel that we’re seeing throughout design blogs and magazines right now.

This is the epitome of rustic design, colour variations and knots left in place to maintain character and charm. Used in conjunction with the furniture and accessories we’ve picked out, it’s sure to get family and friends talking. Why not try it out!


1. Galleria Professional Rustic Oak Winter Dawn provides the base for this French provincial style kitchen

2. A free standing Heidi Cabinet provides a great alternative to a fitted kitchen, the like of which can be found at steinworld.com

3. This Butlers Sink from victorianplumbing.co.uk is a timeless classic that needs little introduction

4. A paint such as Cornforth White from farrow-ball.com is a key yet understated element to the final look and feel

5. A glass light shade offers a stylish and subtle finishing touch


6. Le Creuset Casserole Dish from lecreuset.co.uk is equally as impressive in the oven as it is on display

For those on a budget, laminate is an excellent alternative to the wood we see in the mood board above. The benefits of this include simpler maintenance, particularly useful where hectic family life is considered. A grey option from our grey option from our Series Woods collection would be an apt choice; a good match that won’t break the bank.

Whatever you opt for, trust your judgment. This look is easy to create with a bit of careful planning.
