Read an Excerpt
Mixing pieces from disparate periods is common practice, offering a rich lesson in art history while easing formality. But a dash of leopard fabric may also tame the seriousness of a space by making the glamorous appear more relaxed, or vice versa. Certainly, looks vary widely. Seldom do the French stray from their unified approach to decorating, however.
