When it comes to the French, we all want to know how to inject some of their je ne sais quoi into our own lives. From fashion to interior design, their inimitable style is enviable. Even their cuisine is highly coveted; Julia Child's global success proved that. We'll never stop trying to emulate their effortless style. From creating rustic, provincial farmhouses to elegant and downright luxurious culinary spaces, the French have a knack for creating eye-catching looks that will never go out of style.
