From the Inside Flap

Charles Faudree with M.J. Van Deventer

Photographs by Jenifer Jordan

Faudree /Van Deventer/Jordan

The most beloved designer of Country French interiors, Charles Faudree has been working his magic on homes domestically and internationally for more than thirty-five years. His fourth book, Charles Faudree Interiors continues to reveal his versatility in classic and international styles, and showcases his newest signature Country French interior-his own new cabin nestled in the Oklahoma countryside-along with a tropical island retreat, a chic metropolitan high-rise, and homes done up in Georgian, contemporary, and ranch high style.

Here, in his personal, engaging manner, Faudree walks us through the challenges and successes of his newest designs. Beautiful photography by Jenifer Jordan proves that Country French can keep its traditional spirit and still be modern, surprising, and edgy.

Charles Faudree was named one of America's top 100 designers. He is often featured in design magazines, including Traditional Home, Southern Living, and House Beautiful. His previous books, Charles Faudree's French Country Signature, Charles Faudree's Country French Living, and Country French Florals and Interiors, have been widely lauded. While designing homes and creating books, Charles maintains a retail shop in Tulsa and has launched a fabric line, The Charles Faudree Collection, for Vervain. He lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Jenifer Jordan is a Texas-based photographer whose work has been featured in Traditional Home, Renovation Style, House Beautiful, Southern Accents and Veranda, as well as in two of Faudree's previous books, Charles Faudree's French Country Signature and Charles Faudree's Country French Living.

It's amazing how different people see things differently. The cluttered and overdone look of Charles Faudree is precisely what I adore about his decorating style. The fact that he can put so many things into a room and it still be comfortable and charming is the mark of a master. Actually, I thought this book tended away slightly from the maximum "stuff" of his other previous books. His use of color in this era of drab neutral everything is refreshing and sharp and in many of the rooms in this book, negated the need for so many accessories.

I found this book to be exactly on par with Charles Faudree's earlier books - his use of saturated color, grand rooms with a charming and cozy feel, lucious fabrics, accessories of beauty and occasional whimsy - all his signature work is there. Gorgeous photography as always and I love the shots of rooms from above and the format of 'sketches' of rooms preceding the actual photos. And, as always, his beloved dog is in many of the room photos - not because he was placed there but because he loves to be in the thick of things! If you have enjoyed Charle's previous books, you will love this one too. I find myself picking it up again and again.

I have all of his books, and am a big fan.....but something is "off" about this one. Most of the interiors seem contrived, stuffy, and a little outdated. The warmth and charm of the usual "Faudree mix" has been, for the most part, replaced with rooms that have all the banal originality and personality of a hotel lobby or furniture showroom. Skip this one!

I own ALL of his books, and this is my least favorite. There was no one quite like Charles Faudree, and I'm an avid fan of his style. I just don't think this book captures his best work. Many of the photos are repeated from other books although this was not the last one written. Overall, the rooms seem too cluttered and fussy and not in character with his style. His rooms normally evoke a feeling of warmth and an invitation to come in and sit down. Sadly, not this time. My other books from him are lovingly used, with turned down corners and notes tucked inside, but this book is one I'll leave on the shelf.

I was disappointed in the rooms pictured in this book. They seem to be cluttered and overdone. There was not the unique, charming, perfect sense of proportion and pleasing to the eye style that usually represents Faudree's work. This book does not come close to his first two books.

This book is one of the best design books I have purchased! Faudee weaves his magic throughout and helps me see how I can transform my look into a more refined one. The book is great on a coffee table or any table for that matter, just make sure you keep this within easy reach because you'll be going for over and over!

I haven't followed his suggestions as yet, but I love the way he combines colors with a flair. . This gentleman proceeds
his reputation, so I believe his ideas will be quite successful for my way of life.

I have his first two books and this third one does not disappoint. It's funny because I would not want my entire home or even an entire room to be decorated in Faudree's style, but I love many of the things he does and I use his books as a learning tool in how patterns and colors and furniture positioning work together. Some of his rooms are really on the edge of being over-the-top, however, his choices all seem to go together. His brief narratives in this book are interesting reads...I would have liked him to go into more detail. Anyway, overall this book is great!!
