I met Carolyn Westbrook over the weekend at the Country Living Fair in Atlanta. She was so engaging, warm and funny. We had never met, yet it felt like I was talking to a long, lost friend. I purchased her newest book and it is divine! I love how the look is romantic, soft and inviting. I especially enjoyed seeing the full picture then a close-up of the vignettes on the side tables or mantles. You will not be disappointed! Purchase this book!!

As other reviewers have noted, this is slanted more to the shabby chic -- loose slipcovers, chipped paint, etc. If this isn't your style then this book isn't for you either. I see nothing intrinsically French about slipcovers and chipped paint -- so to me the book doesn't live up to its title.

I get to see Carolyn's inspiring work every fall and spring in Warrenton.
Her designs are practically beautiful, comfortable, homey and inventive.
The warmth of her personality and love of friends and family come through her
work. What a gift.

I knew I would love this book the minute I opened the cover and saw the pink painted chest. It is a beautiful book, full of fresh ideas. One example: use music stands at varying heights to display art books (or any books for that matter!) Or how about draping a concrete angel statue in fake pearls? Even fake ones look like a million bucks used this way. Page after page of great ideas! It's got me thinking how to make simple changes in my own home that will be different and fun. If a book can get you thinking how to work with what you already have in new, interesting ways, it's worth every penny.

On the whole, I liked the rooms in this book. Maybe a little more shabby chic than I care for...please lose the baggy white slipcovers. So many of the sofas hiding under the slipcovers were probably better looking and did more for the decor than the yards of white canvas did.

I'd say it was more of a mix of shabby chic and English country with some French thrown in. It wasn't what I thought it would be but some photos are pretty. Overall it was rooms that were too cluttered or 'heavy' for my liking.
