This month’s theme: French Twist

America can certainly lay claim to country music. And country-fried steak? That’s ours, too. But the broader concept of "country" isn’t exactly an American invention. In France, the countryside might be dotted with vineyards and lavender fields rather than rows of corn, but when it comes to translating that concept into decor, the ideas is pretty similar: fresh, simple objects that retain a connection to the earth.
