Overview

"Too much is never enough," says Charles Faudree, who has achieved an international reputation for creating settings that have all the elegant accoutrements of a Country French estate. It is a union of the rustic with the refined that creates Charles' distinctive style of casual, understated elegance. With creations that are always artful, eclectic and inspiring, Charles is a master at one of the main tenets of Country French-combining traditional prints, patterns, colors and textures with just the right furnishings.

The style has its origins in the French countryside, straddling both the southern and northern regions of western Europe and drawing from many influences. With a look at old and new collections, blue and white Chinese export porcelain, painted furniture, Napoleonic figures, antique furnishings, unusual fabrics, accessories and architectural adornments, Country French is an inviting and exhilarating look into Charles' innate sense of balance in the way he juxtaposes fabrics, furnishings, color and accessories to create a cohesive interior portrait. Within some designs, experience the beautiful craftsmanship of the 17th and 18th centuries when ebenistes, the skilled cabinetmakers near Paris, created exquisite pieces, often for royalty and wealthy clients.

Many of the antiques Charles uses from this period reflect the hierarchy among furniture makers of that era: the menuisier, or joiner, who made plain carved wood chairs and tables; the sculpteur, who did the carving; the fondeur-chiseleur, who made the metal mounts; the doreur, the gilder of both mounts and wood; and finally, the tapissier, who completed the project with upholstery. From XXX illustrations, you'll be able to see the simplicity of magically transferring your home into a fabulous French farmhouse with a pleasing, timeless appeal.

Read an Excerpt

I admired the architectural charm of a 1923 Dutch Colonial house long before I purchased it. Its front-gabled roof, shuttered crank out windows and window boxes overflowing with begonias and lacy ferns were captivating. If the exterior of a house entices, the interior-especially the entryway-must enthrall. The wide floorboards and high-pitched ceiling of the Dutch Colonial gave the house a quaint charm. It is important to decorate a front porch, a porte cochere, or even a back entry to set the tone for the rest of the home.

    Yummy Pictures!!

    This book is totally delicious. There are so many gorgeous pictures to drool over. If you like french country you'll love this book. There are some really interesting arrangments on the walls using pictures and shelves and all kinds of miscellaneous items. His use of accessories is an inspiration. Beautiful. I will be a copy cat and steal some of his ideas for my home!

    What an inspiration!

    The photos alone are worth purchasing this book. Charles Faudree's style is very similar to mine so this book will be invaluable to me when I start designing our new home.

    Wonderful

    This book is beautiful. I would love for Charles Faudree to come to my home and decorate it as the pages of his book are done. I have seen what he did with the Oklahoma Governor's Mansion. WONDERFUL Mary Kay Niles Yukon, OK
