How to French Country

Silm, Sara

£30.00

Capturing the beauty and tranquility of deepest southwest France, interior designer Sara Silm distils the unique colours, textures and flavours of this distinctive corner of the world. Inherent in Sara’s detailed knowledge of French country style are philosophical lines drawn between colour, temporality, style, sensation and season, such that every design choice is a contemplation of time and place. She offers colour codes for six completely unique colour palettes derived from Béarnaise towns and their surrounds: the patina of weather-beaten shutters, of local brick and fading roof tiles, violet-hued ice cream and rolling hills bursting to life in spring.
