French decorating does not overwhelm the eye; instead, it seduces us with objects and details often so unobtrusive and subtle that they are not immediately singled out. Decorating and set design wizard Erin Swift has made a successful career from understanding and applying the nuances of such careful touches. Her lavishly illustrated gift book French Accents escorts readers through the abodes of famed interior designers, artists, and architects, explaining on each tour how its stylist achieved the optimal effects. Every aspect of sophistication and design is addressed: color, lighting; furnishings; wall, table, and chair decorations; structure and texture. Hundreds of practical ideas; as useful as it is beautiful.
