Romance with French Living : For French-Inspired Living and Romantic Entertaining


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.
