Check Your Colors

Rustic French country style can be surprisingly easy to recreate, Jan says. Her top three tips for a French feel:

•  Choose your colors wisely. Red, white and blue work very well with French décor, since these are the three colors of their national flag.

•  Use simple linens with clean lines. Creamy or white linens with a single stripe add a great French feel to your table.

•  Pick bright blooms. "Sunflowers just say France," Jan says.
