The French-Inspired Home, with French Generalby Kaari Meng
Kaari Meng’s first-hand knowledge of what makes a beautiful, French-inspired home comes from years of combing French flea markets for unique treasures. Her popular shop, French General, offers handpicked linens and collectibles from her yearly visits to the south of France, plus an array of products to awaken the senses, from bath and laundry potions to ribbons, beads, and baubles. Here, she distills her much sought-after sensibility into 40 charming projects that capture the sights, scents, and textures of the French countryside. They include lavender sachets, lovely etched glasses, pillows, covered hangers, French potting boxes, and herbal lotions.

I was a little disappointed with this book. I love country French style decorating, but just didn't think this book had very good examples. I did find one good idea out of the book; an example of stringing old postcards together with coordinating ribbon.
I just received this book as a gift from another Francophile - we have been enjoying this book page by page! It is filled with easy ways to bring a creative French feeling into your home. Bravo to French General - I can't wait for the next one!
What an amazing book! Beautifully designed and written. Its not just another book on France - its very well thought out with great attention to detail.
