Creating the French Look by Annie Sloan

In this book, the French Look is divided into ‘Chateau’, ‘Country’, ‘Provencial’ and ‘Parisian style’, and applied to living room, kitchen and dining room, bedroom and bathroom, and to living space in the garden. As well as describing each overall look, focusing on colors and fabrics, Annie  emphasizes the details and accents required by each one, and, illustrated by 25 clearly explained step-by-step projects, shows how to achieve it. Among other things, she explains how to paint and distress furniture, and describes how to cover an armoire door with embroidered voile. Whatever interior you desire, this book will guide your choices from the grand statement of the painted armoire to the finishing touch of a little bouquet of lavender.
