This month’s issue of Elle Decor Magazine (January/February 2014) is the International issue, republishing highlights from editions of the magazine outside the US. This issue is a lucky treat because it features both a French farmhouse in Normandy and an ultra-chic Paris apartment!

First up is the Normandy Farmhouse. Photography by Nicolas Mathéus. Design by Franz Potisek.

Love the classic green and white color combination. Elegant and earthy. Note the cooking pot and two wineglasses at the ready. It is a French home after all!

Shades of green and white recall the kitchen combination. This is equally classic and elegant.

Here are some green, white, and red items from I Dream of France with an earthy elegance that would mix well in this farmhouse:
