The French Chateau incorporates much of the Italian Renaissance details, capped with a steep distinctive roofline. French castles can be strictly symmetrical or much more playful with several motifs of tower, turret, chimneys, columned entry porches and curved and triangular pediments. The French style presents a grand, classical statement. Interiors are typically very decorative. Below you will find ideas and drawings in the 'French Country' style that is a uniquely American take on the period style original.
