Overview

Welcome to the world of designer and decorator Carolyn Westbrook. Carolyn is known for her love of French design, and here she shares her romance with beautiful and inspiring interiors. Carolyn's mantra is simply to create a home that reflects your spirit, and here she invites us into her own home, a 1800s plantation house. The decor changes regularly - walls are given a dramatic facelift with a new colour, furniture bought for her business becomes too precious to be sold on, newly discovered accessories are layered in with existing treasures. Nothing stays the same for long, and Through The French Door reveals the latest incarnation of this wonderful family home. Carolyn invites you to share her everyday life here, from collecting still-warm eggs from her brood of chickens to picking sun-ripened tomatoes and basil from her garden for supper. Carolyn is known for her parties and this book captures the seasonal celebrations at The Plantation, from the splendour of Christmas to summer parties. Carolyn also takes us on a tour of other homes she finds are truly French inspired. Roam through the halls of a city mansion or take a look at the simple, sleek interior of a town house. See what true French country style looks like by peeking through the door of a log cabin dressed in French ticking and gorgeous velvets. Wherever and however you live, Carolyn once again shows that her signature French style can be applied to any interior. Her sure hand guides you through the process of creating a wonderful home that is a reflection of you and teaches you how to pull together interior decorating schemes. With glorious photography and a range of homes, Through the French Door is a celebration of Carolyn Westbrook's signature style - timeless, sophisticated, comfortable and inspiring.
