4.0 out of 5 stars Chic
French interiors are so chic and sophisticated - it's a look that many of us admire and want to replicate. This book identifies several looks we could emulate - divided into Chateau, Country, Provence and Paris. The latter are then subdivided into Rococo, Neo Classical, Manoir, Rural, Provence - Luberon, Provence - Riviera, Bohemian and Coco. The essentials are given for...

3.0 out of 5 stars Creating the French Look
I recently took the Annie Sloan course and thoroughly enjoyed it. I also own her other two books which have a lot of useful tips and take you through projects on step-by-step basis. However `Creating the French Look' does not go in to detail on how to create the paint effects shown in the book. Would recommend her other two books over this if you are looking to find out...

This review is from: Creating the French Look (Paperback)
French interiors are so chic and sophisticated - it's a look that many of us admire and want to replicate. This book identifies several looks we could emulate - divided into Chateau, Country, Provence and Paris. The latter are then subdivided into Rococo, Neo Classical, Manoir, Rural, Provence - Luberon, Provence - Riviera, Bohemian and Coco. The essentials are given for each style highlighting fabrics and decorative details. Part two looks at the elements of these styles for each room. Chairs, console tables, cherubs, armoires and more. This is more than just a style book, it also has details of how to create the look yourself. There are instructions on making unlined curtains with braid or how to crackle varnish a console. Discover how to line walls with fabric or antique a stone cherub and much more. This book is full of panache and the projects to create French style in your own home. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to create the French look in their home. This review first appeared on Karen Platt's book review website.

This review is from: Creating the French Look (Paperback)
This is a great book, beautifully presented but also taking an intelligent and creative approach to French style in Interiors.It covers everything from French Chateau to Manoir House, Provencal and Parisian style. It shows many paint and fabric techniques that are simple and straightforward to adopt but achieve lovely effects.

This review is from: Creating the French Look (Paperback)
Too much information on the history of French furniture and not enough about the techniques of painting or creating the look.

This book contains a lot of beautiful photography but little in the way of content. Overpriced and nothing new here. Nothing that I couldn't find by a 5 minute search on Google....

Bought this a stocking filler for my wife and she really likes the ideas and advice. Whether she can re-create them, only time will tell.
