One of America's top 100 designers, Charles Faudree has worldwide appeal with his interpretation of Country French. Charles Faudree's Country French Living features his newest room designs. From the entryway to the dressing room to walls, dining rooms, and outdoor spaces, Charles teaches principles of design that make a house a Country French home:

The importance of the bedroom and how to make it a soothing sanctuary, deserving as much attention to beauty and detail as the rest of the home.

How to identify a pivotal fabric, a dominant color, or one magnificent antique that will dictate the style and design for a whole room.

How books can create an inviting atmosphere and add a warmth all their own.

How a valance is the ultimate decorating deceit, and how window treatments express the personality of a room and add a proper finish.

How to use walls as they are meant--as a stage on which to display one's favorite collections.

How to use symmetrical groupings that provide a sense if balance and order in a room

Charles Faudree's Country French Living also shows how to make the most of accessories like lamps, pillows, baskets, paintings, and more to finish a room and provide the charm and character so important in a well-designed French Country setting. Country French Living reveals that the true test of a beautiful room is in the details.
