French House Chic by Jane Webster





French House Chic is a sumptuous delight.  The author is an Australian who bought a dilapidated Norman chateau and restored it and now hosts people there in the summer.

The photos are fantastic.  They were done by Robyn Lea. 


If you like French country house style or things French and want to immerse yourself in it, this one's for you.

I have visited chateaux in France, including in Normandy, and I learned quite a lot from this book – about parquetry, French panelling, Upholstered walls and Bergère chairs – and lots of other stuff.


The photos are not just of the author's house but also of other houses around France.

If you are looking for a great gift for a Francophile in your life, look no further.
