No Frills French Country

I just bought a house and need all the ideas and help I can get. The house needs some work but whose doesn't? I lean more toward French Country but not too frilly. I do have a daughter (she's 9) so I would like something that can be lived in and not just for show kwim? I do not have any furniture yet (none that is going with me), so I'm trying to figure things out. I look forward to hearing back from you!

Whites, creams, and espressos combine to create a warm and neutral space that really allows the stained glass to shine!
