Editorial Reviews

Review

"Betty Lou Phillips' 10th release is replete with elegant colors and textures." (Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles )

"The book offers inspiration on everything from dressing windows in your salon, bed chambers, and the 'enviable French kitchen' with its open shelving." (Dallas Morning News )

From the Inside Flap

The French Room With the wisdom gleaned from fervent beliefs that have long defined French decorating, best-selling author and interior designer Betty Lou Phillips reveals the secrets behind French design, whether refined or relaxed.
Lush photographs evoke old-world élan as Ms. Phillips shares ways that color can solve irksome design problems without moving walls or making other structural improvements. She addresses the art of hanging art and dressing salon windows, then moves into the bed chamber with a culture all its own. The author also sheds light on the enviable French kitchen, with its open shelving offering easy access to cookware, while focusing on the French table.
Whether furnishing a second home in wine-country luxury, an apartment with a Paris flair, or a stateside bastide in the style of Provence, the pursuit of beauty offers a glimpse into souls. Taking a cue from the French, North American designers are exacting in their thinking, artfully sculpting satisfying rooms that indulge a passion for France while mirroring the lives we lead on this side of the Atlantic.

Along with Charles Faudree's new Interiors, I have been anxiously awaiting Betty Lou Phillips' The French Room. I wasn't disappointed. Although not every lifestyle allows for the abundance of objets d'art or the high-end luxury fabrics on every upholstered piece, I can still appreciate the beauty and design of the rooms presented. I like the somewhat cleaner line of Ms. Phillips' interiors and those of the designers also featured. It's a shame that this is a decorating style that does not transition itself down well to the mass market, but maybe that's why it's so appealing. Lovely photographs and a wealth of anecdotal information on accomplishing the French style...whatever your budget.

Every time I look throuigh this beautifully illustrated and written book, I find more ideas and inspiration. I am so glad to have The French Room as my own so I can refer back to the pages for details and other decorating tips. I think that it is a wonderful Christmas gift for friends who appreciate owning or dreaming about elegantly appointed homes. For those who have Betty Lou's other books, this is a must-have book for your collection.

Gives you pictorial direction on furnishings from all angles--upholstery fabrics, style of upholstery especially in sofa skirt/arm design, room layout, accessories, it's all there! Great resource for any DIY Interior Designer who loves all things French!

I have all of Betty's books and enjoy them all. They inspire me in my French Decor Fettish. I always take mine one step further though with authentic Sevres' French Porcelain added for the perfect touch. The original chateau on the outskirts of Paris is still there & has a shop where you can purchase even today....every oil barron home I have ever visited has this same "look".

As an interior deisgn student, I absolutely love this book. All the photos are elegant, beautiful, classy and certainly classically French. It is very inspiring to me, as a student and an individual.

Another great book from Betty Lou Phillips! If you love details, you will love this book. (any of her books for that matter) Page after page, beautiful combinations of fabrics, trims, upholstery details, and accessories. If you think it's beautiful the first time through it, sit down with your magnifying glass......you will find impeccible details everywhere. It would be hard to think she has overlooked anything. You won't be dissappointed.
