Brimming with charm, this Victoria Classics issue explores storybook abodes in the heart of France. A canopied daybed and an abundance of cheery red toile highlight the colorful interiors of Château de Nyon. At a bed-and-breakfast near Bourges, guest rooms pay tribute to icons of style, including fashion designer Coco Chanel and sculptor Camille Claudel. In an airy oasis on the outskirts of Paris, décor in soothing shades of alabaster evokes the romanticism of the Belle Époque era. Whether one thrills to the timeless palette of blue and white, adores a mélange of whisper-soft pastels, or appreciates the flourish of a gilded accent, inspiration abounds within French Cottage for creating a dream dwelling.
