The French touch is characterized by an effortless elegance that characterizes the arrangement of a vase of wild flowers on a cottage table in Normandy as much as the choice of objets d'art on a Louis XVI escritoire in a luxury Parisian apartment. This book is an opportunity to sample this wonderful way of life, with a wealth of lavish colour photographs that take the reader into the most beautiful homes of France. Chateaux, mansions, farmhouses and village homes, modest townhouses and tiny flats: all reflect in every detail the taste and personality of their owners. Gardens are no less important and they have been laid out, embellished and cared for with equal devotion and elan, whether acres of formal landscape or a small townhouse patio. Everybody concerned with the design of interiors or gardens with find this book an inspiration: everybody who knows and loves the French will enjoy an intimate record of a mode de vie of enviable ease and charm.
