The writer and photographer Sébastien Siraudeau has already uncovered home inspiration from Frances guest- houses, antique shops, and flea markets in his previous books Vintage French Interiors and French Style at Home. Now he turns his experienced eye to the hidden gems of interior design in the French countryside and unveils the wealth of decorative inspiration they have to offer. The vibrancy of these hidden retreats is demon-strated beautifully and, as the pages unfold, the reader is struck by a wealth of inspiration from the colors, seasons, and personal stories that combine to form these subtly elegant creations. Siraudeau has a rare talent for finding homes that combine gently-aged vintage pieces in a contemporary and relaxed atmosphere. True style can be discovered in the most unexpected and varied destinations, as Siraudeau masterfully shows in chapters ranging from seemingly humble hamlets or farmyards to châteaux in flickering candlelight. This invitation over the threshold of such inherently picturesque households is a temptation no design enthusiast could resist.

Before Pierre Deux's French Country enchanted the world with the warmth and exuberant spirit of Provencal design, the charms of French Country style had remained hidden behind the closed doors of the farmhouses, chateaux and auberges that dot the countryside of France. This seminal book revealed a unique aesthetic that has evolved over hundreds of years to arrive at a look that is perfectly adapted to its time and place. Now, Linda Dannenberg, co-author of French Country, returns to Provence to capture not only the best of the old traditions but also to present the latest design developments and trends in le style provencal. New French Country takes you on privileged tours that include a lavish apartment in Avignon, a lushly landscaped estate in the Luberon and an antique ochre mill in Rousillon, treating you to a fascinating narrative about local customs and handicrafts. In addition to chapters on the colours, fabrics, furniture, pottery, architectural elements and gardens of Provence, New French Country includes an extensive directory to the best the region has to offer, and an overview of its most charming shops and most accomplished artisans.
