Love this French vintage decorating style guide

The author Kaari Meng has talents in quilting, crafting and jewelry-making (and decorating) but as a writer she is rather simplistic often stating the obvious which is better depicted in the photos of the book. I would have liked more stories of how she came to find all of these vintage French goods and what drew her to them and why she made some decorating decisions she made etc. the whys and wherefores would have been more intriguing than looking at the pictures of her home and some of the projects for the home in the book. That said, I LOVE the book so much, love the feel, the look, the decorating that I have to give it five stars. If you love the French Country look but not as fussy, more rustic and vintage - this book will be your guide. I have read it three times now, I keep referring to it as i refine my style and find things I like and want to do in my own home. The photos are splendid, really evocative of this style of decorating. I would love to have a second volume - please do a part two Kaari and add more stories about your process as an artist!

The 1st of the great French General Books

I love French General, their books, and products. I had to replace this book that I bought when it initially came out after I lent it to a friend and never got it back. I love Kaari's view of life and her world. There is beauty everywhere, and can be created by doing simple things. Her view of life goes with the new view of a simpler, more streamlined, less cluttered lifestyle.

Disappointing. Lackluster photos that look like retail store staging. I know this was written by a retailer but I still expected more.
