The enduring appeal of French-country style spans the centuries, a gracious mingling of elegance and ease. After years of largely echoing the furniture, fabrics, and accessories linked with the region of Provence, these days French country is often far removed from the primitive images that hearken back to the early seventeenth century. Room by room, FRENCH BY DESIGN reveals the secrets to creating a contemporary French-country look, including textiles, furniture, floor coverings, window treatments, color palettes, wall treatments and lighting, thus allowing anyone to bring the look home. < BR>

Presenting an opulent, upper class rendering of "country French" interior decor which almost borders on caricature, Phillips (a Texan interior designer) volume is a paean to French high culture, with romanticized discussion of the Gallic character. High quality color photographs throughout. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
