Description - Provence Style: Decorating with French Country Flair by Shauna Varvel
Thirty years after the publication of Peter Mayle's bestselling memoir A Year in Provence, the sun-drenched southern French region continues to excite home decorators with its combination of rustic charm, elegant details and historical influences. Provence Style showcases the best of the region, with Shauna Varvel's quintessential 18th-century Rhone valley farmhouse - Le Mas des Poiriers - as its centrepiece. Named for the working pear orchard on the grounds, the property was re-imagined by noted local architect Alexandre Lafourcade, who transformed a rough structure into a luxurious expression of the Provencal aesthetic, referencing historical influences, rural traditions and Parisian taste.
Set amidst a garden of allees, arbors and terraces designed by the architect's mother, renowned landscaper Dominique Lafourcade, this exemplar of Provencal style is the starting point for exploring the region's characteristic interior details and exterior features. The book continues with chapters on the public spaces of the home, from entrances to living rooms, the private realm of bedrooms and bathrooms, and outdoor areas including patios and kitchen gardens, transporting the reader on a captivating stylistic journey
