THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THIS BOOK

When we discovered on our last house-hunting trip the house that would be our eighth and current home (and the one coming closest to that proverbial "dream"), I fell instantly in love when I took the first step across the threshold. Walking through the living areas, I sensed that this could be "the one," and nodded my head in approval-yet held my breath as we neared what I knew would be the most important room in the house: the kitchen.

I bought this book because my kitchen customer loves country French design and I needed some inspiration! This beautiful book delivered! The kitchen designs are expert and the hand-painted tile motifs reflect just the right touch of French whimsy. Thank you, Ms. Fernandez, we will have your book on our reference shelf for years to come.
