In a grand celebration of beauty, Victoria’s May/June issue showcases the abundant joie de vivre of France, from wondrous parterres and outdoor rooms to elegant interiors. Come along with us as we explore the secret addresses of Provence and tour history-rich northern France. Sumptuous interiors captivate the senses with Old-World charm, and flowers speak poetry to those who know their language. On offer at table are light-as-air French meringues and an exquisite collection of blue-and-white faïence. Also: Explore the legacy of Oak Spring and its founder, Rachel Lambert “Bunny” Mellon, and discover workshops well worth the Gallic excursion.
