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.
Notable aspects of this work are the use of the color pink, bouquet curtain ties, distressed furniture to add a bit of "shabby chic" to the mix ( Not my style personally, though), modern pieces, use of the color French blue, the use of statues and busts as necklace and rosary holders, replicas of Michaelangelo's "David", St. Francis of Assisi, and elegant chandeliers.
"My love affair with romantic French Style is evident from all the objects I've collected over the years." muses Westbrook in this publication.
Readers are certainly in for an enjoyable and informative view of them.
I haven't read all the text, but the photographs are superb. There is a mix of full room views and vignettes for each style. You'll see plenty of inspiration for using what you already have in a French way, whether it's tabletops, furniture, or wall decor. Maybe you won't stack a dozen used toe shoes in a bookcase (one of the photos), but you can put a lamp on a book to give height variation on your hall table.
I look forward to reading the text and absorbing the lessons in the photographs for a long time to come.
If you really want to have a French inspired home, you're better off looking at the genuine article, such as the lovely magazine "Campagne Decoration" or blogs such as "Jeanne D'Arc," the French version.
