More About the Author

Fifi O'Neill grew up in Paris, France. She lived in Manitoba, Canada, for 15 years where she first fell in love with the region's vast and beautiful prairies. A move to the United States took her to the great plains, where comfort, simplicity, and harmony with the earth became the foundation for her own style, Prairie Style. As an editor, writer, and photo stylist, Fifi O'Neill has produced numerous features on home decorating, food, and gardening for American and European magazines, such as Coastal Living, Country Living (USA), Casa Romantica, Casa Antichi (Italy), and many more. Though she now lives in Florida and her work takes her from coast to coast and across Europe, her heart belongs to the prairie with its endearing aura of romance and nostalgia, its enduring connection between people and places, and its gentle yet resilient spirit.

Format: Hardcover
This is a beautiful book. The photographs are of a wonderful quality and make you want to pack your bags and move to the prairie. You can smell the food that's on the tables in some of the photos. The author points out the little quirks that represent the style or make it stand out. There are photos of the vegetable gardens, the exteriors and overall, the book gives you a very good idea of what the style is like. By meticulously pointing these things out, you are shown what you can do yourself to make your home more prairie-like, short of moving there yourself.

Two things surprised me, and they're the reason why I didn't think this a 5 star book. I got the feeling that few of these houses, however beautiful, are representative of 'prairie style', I think I'd rather call it shabby / vintage chic. One home, for instance, has more French influences, including a pattern of Provencal olive branches on the kitchen walls, than prairie / American pioneer influences. Another home has books on the bookshelves, but with their backs to the inside of the bookcase, so that they don't jar with the interior. I thought that that jarred a little with the idea of leading a wholesome country life. It is only a small thing, however, which is entirely off-set by home-made items, from chair covers to kitchen cabinets and bookcases, that fit in entirely with the prairie ideal. I particularly liked the fact that it is not only the home which is given attention, but also the outside; the vegetable gardens and the like. Also the pictures of some of the children with their pet animals make it so much nicer and real than other interior design books.

I've seen photographs of this style in various other books before but never a whole book full of it! Each page raises a sigh! Beautifully photographed way of life - now I'm prairie style girl!

This book is wonderful for imagining , relaxing and enjoying a peek into beautiful prairie homes. It has chapters featuring real life homes filled with beautiful ideas. If you love romantic shabby chic style interiors and are interested to see how a country prairie home looks it is just the book for you. I love to pick it up on a rainy afternoon and lose myself in the beautiful photos. The colours and country styling are just so gorgeous. Recommended for lovers of the shabby chic home.

I bought this book recently as I love collecting pretty design books. My home is 'Shabby/vintage' style with a dash of 'French Chic'. I have to say that I Love this book and have placed it on top of the pile of decor books by my bedside. The photo's are gorgeous and I've already seen some ideas that I can use around my home. Worth every penny and more.
