With her French upbringing, interior designer and author Florence de Dampierre marvels at the rules of art de vivre
(art of living), which comes from a long tradition. She believes that the essence of French style can be summed up with one word: "goet"

, Florence de Dampierre takes readers on a tour of a traditional French home, starting in the kitchen and ending in the garden. With beautiful photography throughout by Tim Street-Porter, Florence offers readers advice for leading a French chic lifestyle – which is that of seduction, elegance and personality.
