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.
