The French have a legendary sense of style and this is nowhere more evident than in their interiors. In French Home, dealer in French antiques Josephine Ryan explores the elements that combine to create elegant yet comfortable spaces with a distinctly French feel. She points out the architectural details that enhance the framework of a room, explores the textures and the colour palette that flatter various styles of furniture, and shows us options for lighting, mirrors, decorative objects and paintings. By exploring real homes that deftly synthesise all these elements and more, French Home examines the sophisticated alchemy of an enduringly popular look that can be either lush and complex, or simple and pared-down.
