Q: There’s a small area in my house I wish to look like the houses in Southern France. Please give me pointers on how to pull off a French-inspired space. — Nicole M. Bacolod

A: The colors and textures of southern France has inspired the local residents to create understated yet charming homes. You can bring the same charm to your home by following these basics:

  2. Indoor areas should flow naturally towards your garden.

  4. Don't choose heavy furniture! Stick with light, rustic pieces that have a vintage appeal.
