Creating the French Look : Inspirational Ideas and 25 Step-by-step Projects (Reprint) (Paperback) (Annie
about this item
Developed over hundreds of years, the French look reflects all tastes, from the cultivated grandeur of the chateau to the simplicity of rural living, and can be adapted to every home. Creating the French Look is divided into four styles: ‘Chateau’, ‘Country’, ‘Provençal’ and ‘Parisian’, and each “look” is applied to living rooms, kitchens, dining rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms plus outdoor living spaces. As well as describing each overall style, focusing on colours and fabrics, Annie Sloan emphasizes the details and accents required by each one, and, aided by 25 clearly explained step-by-step projects, shows how to achieve it. Among other things, she explains how to paint and distress furniture, and describes how to cover an armoire door with embroidered voile. Whatever interior you desire, this book will guide your choices from the grand statement of the painted armoire to the finishing touch of a little posy of lavender.
Presents design ideas for four types of French decor--Parisian, country, chateau, and Provincial--and describes how to create accent pieces that reflect each style through projects that include instructions and photographs.
