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.

Top Customer Reviews
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.
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.
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!
