After a sabbatical in France in 2016, visual artist Jamie Beck uprooted her life in New York City to start anew in Provence. Since then, her Instagram feed reads like a siren song to hundreds of thousands of followers seeking a slower-paced, provincial life chockfull of romantic wanderings and bucolic settings. A successful commercial photographer who counts the likes of Nike and Chanel as clients, Beck has since turned her lens towards art photography in recent years, which is beautifully archived in her new book, An American in Provence. Here, we explore French country decor pieces that nod to the effortlessly chic lifestyle.
