Home & Garden
Decor inspired by the charm of the French countryside is an often sought-after aesthetic. And it's easy to see why. Who hasn't dreamt up images of rustic furniture, lush landscaping reminiscent of "The Secret Garden" and natural wood accents (exposed beam ceilings, anyone?)? However, as Betsy Kasha, founding partner of the Parisian real estate agency A+B Kasha informs us, "French country is not a deliberate or studied decor. It is more the result of a lifestyle." A whimsical life we all want to lead. Ornate items and unique antiques are often found at Sunday foire a tout (a village yard sale) and then incorporated with more chic pieces at home. "The result is relaxed, interesting, a bit whimsical, and extremely personal," Kasha explains.
