Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

In his informed but friendly manner, Charles Faudree takes readers on a tour through rooms of his own and those of his client-friends. From his perspective of not a few years’ decorating experience, he shares reasons and rationale for making design decisions, interprets his insights into home decorating, and exudes his passion for people and home. As Charles says, “The most important ingredient of a home is that it must have soul.”

In Charles Faudree Home, the emphasis is on Country French style and creating a home that reflects the personalities and lives of the people who live there.

Special guest writers―a few of Charles’s talented friends (designers, artists, family and clients) who have the knack of creating wonderful homes―add their unique insights on how to make the most of the spaces we live in.

While acknowledging that our expectations of home today might not be what they were twenty-some years ago, Faudree confirms that paring down to a simpler life can still include favorite collections and a great mix of fabric and furniture.

Come along, and experience the comfortable elegance of large family living areas and kitchens, as well as intimate spaces of the boudoir, library, dressing room and even closets.

Charles Faudree has been named one of America’s top 100 designers. He is often featured in design magazines, including Traditional Home, Southern Accents, House Beautiful, and Veranda. While designing homes, he maintains a retail shop, and his Charles Faudree Collection of fabric is marketed through Vervain. He is the author of five previous books: Charles Faudree Details, Charles Faudree’s French Country Signature, Charles Faudree’s Country French Living, Country French Florals and Interiors, and Charles Faudree Interiors. He lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma

Drop dead gorgeous! My mind simply cannot get around the fact that Charles continues to create the loveliest rooms in America (and a few abroad) and makes it seem effortless. He willingly admits that his last book "Details" was to be his last, but all the beautiful rooms he has created since that book was published deserved to be seen. Amen to that!

I really enjoyed the variety of houses and locales represented...many in the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina as well as those in Oklahoma and the Southwest. The casual approach to the vacation homes is juxtaposed with the formal city houses, but both are spot on in decoration, appointments and French style.

Each section is introduced by a friend, fellow designer or client, many of whom are well-known names in the design industry. And once again, the descriptive captions are entertaining and informative.

Pets still figure prominently in the photos of the rooms; even the cover of the book features a photo of Charles' beloved Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Nicholas, who passed away late last year. Including the canine family members in the photos has become a Faudree trademark, and I enjoy the homey touch they add to each fabulous view.

Simply the best decorating book I've seen since "Details." You will not be disappointed.

If you are a lover of home dec books, this is one you will want to buy. I have a very extensive home dec library, and Charles Faudree's books are among my favorites. This time he has taken excellence to a new level, and has prompted me to write my first review. Charles Faudree Home shows exceptionally beautiful examples of transistional style. This is a book for today! Take a look at the entryway on page 24. He has mixed chink and rough hewn log walls with Louis XV, Louis XVI and Directoire chairs. Then he added a Lucite table and an Oushak rug. As a final touch, he framed antique French wallpaper as artwork. Such exciting creativity makes Mr.Faudree a genius of "the mix." This is one I'll reach for time and time again. Thank you Charles. Please keep them coming.

I've collected every magazine article on Charles Faudree over 20 years from Traditional Homes and Southern Accents, plus each book that he's written. Based on some previous reviewers, I wasn't sure this book would be different from the others and it might repeat content.
To my delight that is not so. The format is very large so it allows you to really see the accessories and patterns on the fabrics. Each section is prefaced by another designer. You could easily overdose on this book - it is chock full, no, it's entirely full of photos. I became absorbed and enveloped in Charles Faudree's decorating style.
Page after page of rooms, vignettes, tablescapes, wall arrangements, upholstery and furniture arrangements. Quite a reference book.
Beautifully done. Beautiful printing. You can practically bite into this book.

I have been a fan of Charles' since the 90's. I have all his books and love them all.

This one is a fresh and updated book on his signature style. I think it is as good as his first two. Almost.

I am so glad to see he has let us see inside before buying. I have many friends who won't buy books now unless they can see inside because they have been burned buying decorating books that were not good. Thank you Charles...A wise decision.

My book came sooner than I expected as usual with Amazon. You MUST do another one Charles!

A huge fan and I disagree with the people that didn't think it was as good as other Faudree books. I think this book had to be read to get the most from it ! Readers that just look through the pictures, which are very good , might not understand what they are actually trying to show. I savory all his books and find this is also One I will refer to often!!

This book was a waste of my money. The usual signature rooms of Faudree were missing. If his name had not been on the cover, I would have thought an upstart decorator had done the bland rooms. Faudree is by far my favorite decorator! I have all of his books. This one was such a disappointment. Even the quality of the picture on the cover is lacking. Charles, what happened to you?

This is a beautifully written book; rich with colors and dogs that make you want to sit with a cup of hot cocoa and blanket while lingering in the pages of this beautifully designed book. All of the rooms are decorated with treasures that must have taken years to acquire. The descriptions help me with my wish list for future purchases should I be lucky enough to find them. The toile used in the rooms inspired me to redesign our master bed and bath rooms. I own 3 Faudree books and this one is by far my favorite. I don't think this book is pricey at all. The quality and design is worth much more than the list price. I highly recommend this book.

I seem to collect books on French design - have been following Charles Faudree for for over 25 years and this is one of his most beautiful publications. I was afraid, because the price was so good, that it might not be in as good shape as claimed, but it was in pristine condition.
