Book Description

July 1 2011
Developed over hundreds of years, the French look reflects all tastes, from the cultivated grandeur of the château to the simplicity of rural living, and can be adapted to every home. Creating the French Look is divided into four

styles: château, 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, and, aided by 25 step-by-step projects, shows how to achieve it, including an explanation of how to paint and distress furniture. 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.

• Whether you want to make a pair of linen curtains or paint a cupboard in the rustic style of Provence, Creating the French Look shows you how.

• Annie Sloan’s paint range is available across Europe and the United States – www.anniesloan.com.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely pics...and a GREAT how-to book! Sept. 13 2008
By J. Schuck - Published on Amazon.com
I drooled over this book in a bookstore and then came home and ordered it from Amazon for a better price! This book contains a lot of "how to" sections...faux painting/finishing, simple sewing projects, giving objects a patina, etc, so that you can create the French look...it's not just a pretty picture design book. However, it DOES have wonderful pictures which will certainly inspire any French decorating aficionado --or anyone who just LOVES simple/rustic/shabby interior decorating like I do!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow I love it! July 14 2008
By Just Pretty Books - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I loved this book. First, the photography was beautiful. And secondly, it was full of the authentic french looks I love; French mannequins, furniture, linens, etc. The first part of the book is organized into 8 different french "looks". The second part features four different areas of the home, living room, ditchen and dining room, bedroom and bathroom and garden rooms to which these various looks are applied. Sprinkled throughout the book are several different projects to be created to achieve the french look. I loved the book, not so much for the projects, (which I'm too lazy to attempt) but for the visual ideas used to pull together a variety of french styles and looks. I could do without the projects, but you can't beat the pictures!

4.0 out of 5 stars FRENCH FLAIR MADE EASY Oct. 29 2009
By LIZZY - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a good book for adding a French touch to your home and furniture pieces. You do not have to use every idea, especially if you do not sew, although most instructions are rather clear and the full color pictures really help. I do enjoy painting walls and furniture, and this book can make a boring vintage piece or a fake antique look like an expensive home boutique item. You can decide if your french style is chic or rustic or a marriage of the two through most of the ideas presented in this book.

The book was ok....it didn't have much clarity as far as I am concerned. There weren't many pictures....it was a look of reading about nothing....trust me don't waste your money...go to the library and see for yourself before buying it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Do it Like the French Aug. 1 2008
By Ursula Blanks - Published on Amazon.com
A treasure trove of ideas that make creating French style in the home just a few easy projects away. Whether your taste is rustic and simple, eclectic bohemian, or sophisticated in the grand manner, this book provides a veritable template with detailed easy to follow instructions and plenty of photographs. None of the projects are too demanding or intimidating. Each style has been pared down to its essential--paint color choices, fabrics, accessories and so forth, making it easy for do-it-yourselfers to achieve the classic French decor so popular today. A must-have reference for francophile decorators.
