French Home explores the elements that combine to create spaces that have an identifiably French feel; the classic architectural details that enhance the framework of each room, the beguiling textures and the elegant color palette that flatter various styles of furniture, and exploring the options for lighting, mirrors, and paintings. Josephine also takes a look at furniture, textiles, lighting, ceramics, and glass, and suggests how best to display your French-style treasures. The second section, the Rooms, explores real homes that deftly synthesize these elements. French Home examines the sophisticated alchemy of a look that can be either lush and complex, or simple and pared-down.
