We're drawing inspiration from countryside cottages in France for this week's decor update.

Stick to a colour palette of pale blue alongside crisp whites and greys, or dusky pinks paired with ivory and cream. Add texture and character with floral bed sheets, rustic tableware and delicate glass. Vases of peonies, stock or white roses work well with this style.
