A Romance With French Living: Interiors Inspired By Classic French Style

A Romance with French Living provides a glimpse into Carolyn Westbrook’s world, where treasured antiques and vintage finds, perfectly faded fabrics and timeworn furniture blend, seemingly effortlessly, in superb interiors that are both relaxing and chic, inspired by French style. Part One—French-inspired Interiors—showcases Carolyn’s love for designing interiors, decorating, and creating relaxed and welcoming rooms. Essentially French shows how to adapt classic French style to suit modern-day living, and this ethos is carried through to the chapters on A Cottage in The Country and Urban Farmhouse. Part Two—It’s All in The Detail—concentrates on adding those all-important finishing touches to a room, whether it’s antique leatherbound books, cherished items gathered on overseas travel, or swathes of Carolyn’s much-loved white linen, from vintage French linen bedsheets finding a new life as tablecloths and curtains to pristine bed linen and smart upholstery. The final section of the book focuses on entertaining and celebrations, from a country barn party to a bridal shower and an intimate family wedding at Carolyn’s own home, The Oaks Plantation in Texas.

As always Carolyn Westbrook's book is fantastic. I love her books. This is the 4th book of hers that I have purchased and I just love it. I keep all of them in my living room and look at them all of the time. If you want to get ideas on French Decorating or just to get ideas this is the book to purchase. The prices of her books are very reasonable. I have numerous decorating books and these 4 are the ones that I keep going back to. I would recommend this book to anyone.

I have all the Carolyn Westbrook books and I think this is another great one. Beautifully put together. She always seems to capture the right mix of style & comfort on each and every page. I definitely would recommend adding this to your decorating book library.

Another romance with the French is always a pleasure. I loved the pictures and the information Carolyn Westbrook presented. She seems to have a great talent for making her books so lovely. For those who love French decorating, this would be a fine book to give or enjoy yourself.

Overall it is a good book. Wish it had more detail and more pictures. Could do without the wedding and party sections.

This book is gorgeous....anything but simplistic. I especially love the "World Traveler" room. Gosh, the blue is gorgeous. Carolyn's diverse looks and layered style is inspiring. This is my favorite of all her books...I love them all. Bravo!!

I loved this book! I now have all 4 books by Carolyn Westbrook and treasure them all. The wedding that she planned and decorated for her daughter was beautiful. I love having bits of entertaining and event decorating in a decorating book because, to me, they go hand in hand. A beautifully decorated event, such as a wedding, is just as gorgeous as a beautifully decorated room!! Keep 'um coming Carolyn!

I wish I could live in these houses, I get alot of decoration ideas from her books, I also love the white on white.

Pretty pictures, interesting book...I like that EACH PAGE has a description...I don't have to turn pages back and forth to see what I am reading.
