Overview

Charles Faudree has elevated French Country style to a fine art. With an exuberant decorating attitude based around his favorite principle that "too much is never enough", Faudree has achieved an international reputation for creating settings that have all the elegant accoutrements of a French Country estate, lacking pretension but never charm.

With a discerning taste for the eclectic, Faudree is a master at one of the main tenets of this style-combining traditional prints, patterns, colors, and textures with just the right furnishings. Faudree has always been drawn, almost charismatically, to the charm of Country French. He comments, "There is simplicity, a gentle softness to the furnishings I find very calming and soothing. I love the mix of fabrics, blending plaids with florals and old tapestries. Country French is a truly working-class style."

I used this book and Charle's other book to completly remodel a house. The book gives the brand names and pattern and if you don't see it- you can email their firm for it.

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!

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.

The beauty of this book inspires me to look for new ideas for my own home to reflect the beauty and serenity of french country living. I highly recommend it not only for its decorating ideas but for the simple pleasure of owning and enjoying such a wonderful book. It is a book for all lovers of beautiful things.

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
