Content

Before Pierre Deux?s French Country enchanted the world with the warmth and exuberant spirit of Provencal design, the charms of French Country style had remained hidden behind the closed doors of the farmhouses, chateaux and auberges that dot the countryside of France. 
This seminal book revealed a unique aesthetic that has evolved over hundreds of years to arrive at a look that is perfectly adapted to its time and place.
Now, Linda Dannenberg, co-author of French Country, returns to Provence to capture not only the best of the old traditions but also to present the latest design developments and trends in le style provencal.
New French Country takes you on privileged tours that include a lavish apartment in Avignon, a lushly landscaped estate in the Luberon and an antique ochre mill in Rousillon, treating you to a fascinating narrative about local customs and handicrafts.
In addition to chapters on the colours, fabrics, furniture, pottery, architectural elements and gardens of Provence, New French Country includes an extensive directory to the best the region has to offer, and an overview of its most charming shops and most accomplished artisans.

  •     Of the many books I've read and collected on French Country style and decorating, this is the best and most thorough. The book is set up into categories and is concise, beautifully depicted in large color photos, with accompanying text. NOT a coffee table book, but a true reference book for French Country decorating.
  •     This is a book published 11 years ago, but what a wonderfulbook for the decor books I have collectedover the years. Lots of good ideas, well written, and lovelypictures. I am beginning to realize decor books a bit older areoften more interesting, less trendy and worth owning. If youlike French interior design idea books, this is one you will probablylike a lot
  •     I can see this book is going to sit on the top of the coffee table book pile for a long time to come. Aside from the fabulous photos of French Provincial homes, Dannenberg delicately picks apart the details that make a typical Provincial home and garden. It does the job so much better than we sitting in another continent can grasp from a few photos in a book. It teaches us how to copy this style and really appreciate the quality of each piece of furniture, artwork or chattel we acquire for own little pretend patch of France.I love this book!
  •     Love this book, read it in a couple of days. It arrived in perfect condition! Fast shipping! This will a book I will return to again and again for ideas, and the beauty of the photographs. I would purchase from this dealer again. Thank you for great service anda beautiful book. debi
  •     Outdated interiors; I was expecting something fresher.
  •     Okay. No great ideas however, for decorating my home. The French Country magazine is much better.
  •     Great Book.
  •     A great French decor book.
  •     Not at all what I was hoping for, really disappointing ! and I would so like to say something good.
  •     It was okay
  •     As a long-time lover of French Country everything, I was thrilled with this book. Not only were the pictures lovely, the explanations given about where they were taken and what they represent in French life were very good. This is a good "how to" explanation of what French Country is and what it looks like in a home. If you get goosebumps when you smell lavender or glimpse french blue shutters on a cottage, this one is for you.
  •     A long time favorite!
  •     I love everything about French country.
  •     Excellent book!
  •     This has the photos of the homes, furnishings, patios, gardens that I wanted. I have one, and I bought another copy for my Daughter; she's an Architect and we're planning a trip to Provence to study home design for building in the States. The sources cited are current circa 2004, and I've found most of them on Google Earth - and am planning our trip's itinerary accordingly.
  •     This is not just a book of photographs, although they are beautifully executed. The author knows her subject and conveys explanatory information about the elements of French country style that allow the reader to understand how it evolved and how the landscape and natural materials have shaped it.It begins with separate chapters on color, fabric, pottery, elements and accents, then follows with photos of specific properties, finishing with a chapter on Provencal gardens and a directory of sources in Provence.Recommended for anyone wanting to understand and execute a similar style in their own living environment, or for just a lovely coffee table book.
  •     nice resource book
  •     I am disappointed in this book. I am simply looking for an effective way to add French décor to my modest, middle class home.
