French Country Charm

―Recreate the mellow mood of Mediterranean life with subtle blue and white fabrics, sometimes piped in green, in a mix of stripes and floral patterns. Green pottery adds a rustic touch.

• A combination of small-print fabrics with florals and stripes―all in blue and white―creates a pretty, informal look.
• Choose Mediterranean garden plants, such as lavender, rosemary and olive branches, rather than exotic flowers to decorate your table.
• Large bread boards have a rustic feel and make great serving platters.
• Antique metal garden chairs continue the relaxed theme.
• Generous cushions transform stone ledges into comfortable benches.
