Whether you go wall-to-wall or simply select a few mood-setting accents, this exquisitely photographed idea book will inspire the French country designer within. Pull together a bedroom with a jaunty Provencal fabric, furnish the dining area with handsomely carved antique pieces, or warm up a sterile space with charmingly rugged architectural details. Use decorative touches from wrought iron fixtures to rich color schemes, to infuse every type of room--living room, kitchen, bath, even the patio-with earthy, romantic appeal. Charming details help keep the country feel and capture the quaint, rustic flavor of traditional French rural life, even in the most modern American home. The result: a look that's elegant yet succeeds in staying cozy and comfortable, too.
