The Plain Dealer
French Influences by Betty Lou Phillips (Gibbs Smith, $39.95) explores the look and feel of France in home decor. This is a beautiful look at such things as "The American Way With French Style" and "Garden Shows." The photography is excellent, and the homes featured are worthy of the count or countess in your family. Really good stuff for dreams.

Introduction

Behold the power of the French. As tastemakers, they reign supreme. Famous for their discerning eye and flair for sytlish living, their influence knows no bounds.

Traversing time zones and connecting cultures, French influence parades smartly down Paris's fashion runways, sweeps through dining rooms serving the finest cuisine, trails off the drafting boards of knowledgeable architects, winds it way into the studios of top design experts, travels out of art galleries and the shops of popular antiques dealers, until those living as far apart as San Francisco and Saudi Arabia must admit that they are the fortunate beneficiaries.
