Moving forward while looking back, the French are creating a new look in décor…
Inspired by all of the elements of French design - from the regal yet comfortable antique, embroidered quilt to the intricate details painted on a bedroom dresser – acclaimed author Betty Lou Phillips takes a close look at the French ever-so-chic way with design in her book The French Way with Design
Featuring gorgeous, colourful photographs by American photographer Dan Piassick, The French Way with Design
offers a mix of passion, panache, taste and resourcefulness, and opens the doors to apartments in Paris, chateaux in the Loire Valley, and bastides in Provence.
Each photograph is accompanied with a detailed description, as well as handy tips for aspiring interior designers – providing readers with a taste for the kitchen and texture rules. There is also advice for fine dining, the art of exhibition and bed culture. It’s all finely-crafted wood pieces, splendid mirrors, lovingly cared for linens, but with a touch of modern sensibility.
