There is nothing more chic than classic French design, and Betty Lou Phillips brings it to life in her beautiful book, The French Room. The interior pops with color, but we have to admit that sometimes it’s nice to buy a book whose front cover blends with just about any decor. Our copies are in our living rooms.
Although this home is in Dallas, it is a beautiful testament to the French art of living. Designed by Clint Pearson and built by Tatum Brown Custom Homes, this home screams of elegant taste that will endure. The landscaping by the Harold Leidner Company is the perfect finishing touch.
Living rooms are great, but, these days, in the U.S. anyway, it seems like we do most of our living in the kitchen. So why not have a kitchen that is worthy of being lived in? Featured in the Les Couleurs De France section of the book, this kitchen is a showcase for warm glazes, which Phillips says create the illusion of age.
Phillips describes blue as “a color once believed to keep all manner of misfortune away,” and, in this outdoor-themed nursery, misfortune seems to be the farthest thing from anyone’s mind. Who could be sad with a rabbit cage for a changing table?
We wouldn’t mind brunching at this table, handcrafted from old walnut planks from The Old Timber Company in Dallas.
