Let sweet summer breezes carry your thoughts away to the romantic environs of enchanting France, as we bring you our annual issue dedicated to Gallic living. We visit a French country home–inspired estate where a classic blue-and-white palette plays out in the dreamy interiors. View a designer’s residence that is both exceptionally elegant and family friendly, as well as an Englishman’s thoughtfully curated Loire Valley abode. Enjoy a stroll through one of the City of Light’s pocket gardens, a sojourn to a nineteenth-century farmhouse in Normandy, and a wander through a peony farm in Rhode Island. We also feature Paris’s famed flower markets and a perfumery brimming with heavenly scents. Plus, we present classic French dishes worth adding to every cook’s repertoire and an array of treasures that evoke the charms of Provence.
