From the best-selling author of Villa Décor and Unmistakably French comes an insider's guide to French design secrets for home interiors. Betty Lou Phillips, America's foremost interior design expert on French style, shares some of her best-kept secrets-ones that the French seem to know instinctively. Secrets of French Design looks behind heavy lacquered doors at the design principles the French hold dear.
Whether furnishing a château in the Loire Valley, a fabled manor in Normandy, or a pied-à-terre on Paris's grand Avenue Foch, the French make no secret of their love for family, affection for pets and fervor for all things Gallic. With mystery rooted in culture and the ever-elusive idea of "French flair," Betty Lou Phillips shares these long held secrets, and illustrates the principles with awe-inspiring photography.
