From the classic elegance of Haussmann's Parisian boulevards and the glorious excesses of Versailles, to the bohemian charms of Toulouse Lautrec's Montmartre and the artist's garret, France has a legendary style. This illustrated book explores the elements that combine to create spaces with an identifiably French feel - the architectural details that enhance the framework of a room, the textures and colours that flatter various styles of furniture, options for lighting, mirrors and paintings. Looking at real homes, antiques dealer and stylist Josephine Ryan demonstrates a keen eye for objects both ordinary and extraordinary, and examines the alchemy of a style that can be either lush and complex or pared-down and rigorous. 'French Home' will help you reinvent your surroundings and gain a touch of French style.

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.
