Publisher Comments:

Charles Faudree has elevated French Country style to a fine art. With an exuberant decorating attitude based around his favorite principle that too much is never enough, Faudree has achieved an international reputation for creating settings that have all the elegant accoutrements of a French Country estate, lacking pretension but never charm.

With a discerning taste for the eclectic, Faudree is a master at one of the main tenets of this style-combining traditional prints, patterns, colors, and textures with just the right furnishings. Faudree has always been drawn, almost charismatically, to the charm of Country French. He comments, There is simplicity, a gentle softness to the furnishings I find very calming and soothing. I love the mix of fabrics, blending plaids with florals and old tapestries. Country French is a truly working-class style.

Faudree is delighted to finally share his extensive knowledge with the public, in this long-overdue book that focuses on how to make any home into an elegant, inviting, and comfortable French Country retreat.

Charles Faudree graduated from Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, with a degree in art. His client list is international, and he is regarded as a master of Country French style. This is his first book. He lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Synopsis:

"Too much is never enough," says Charles Faudree, who has achieved an international reputation for creating settings that have all the elegant accoutrements of a Country French estate. It is a union of the rustic with the refined that creates Charles' distinctive style of casual, understated elegance. With creations that are always artful, eclectic and inspiring, Charles is a master at one of the main tenets of Country French-combining traditional prints, patterns, colors and textures with just the right furnishings. The style has its origins in the French countryside, straddling both the southern and northern regions of western Europe and drawing from many influences. With a look at old and new collections, blue and white Chinese export porcelain, painted furniture, Napoleonic figures, antique furnishings, unusual fabrics, accessories and architectural adornments, Country French is an inviting and exhilarating look into Charles' innate sense of balance in the way he juxtaposes fabrics, furnishings, color and accessories to create a cohesive interior portrait. Within some designs, experience the beautiful craftsmanship of the 17th and 18th centuries when ebenistes, the skilled cabinetmakers near Paris, created exquisite pieces, often for royalty and wealthy clients. Many of the antiques Charles uses from this period reflect the hierarchy among furniture makers of that era: the menuisier, or joiner, who made plain carved wood chairs and tables; the sculpteur, who did the carving; the fondeur-chiseleur, who made the metal mounts; the doreur, the gilder of both mounts and wood; and finally, the tapissier, who completed the project with upholstery. From XXX illustrations, you'll be able tosee the simplicity of magically transferring your home into a fabulous French farmhouse with a pleasing, timeless appeal.

Synopsis:

French Country style's most renowned spokesperson brings his charming and witty style to print in a new volume inspired by classic French fabric, bold colors and textures, and charming antiques from 18th-century French chateaux and English manor houses.

Charles Faudree's FRENCH COUNTRY SIGNATURE is definitely eye candy. While other books on this subject give you pictures of French countryside lanes or fields or even pages of narrartive, Faudree takes you inside the homes and gives you concrete examples of Country French design. The book is chock full of examples of how to achieve this beautiful style. He also gives you confidence to create a similar look with his great advice that too much might not be enough! It stands out from all the other books on Country French decorating. Thoroughly enjoyed this book and will keep it handy to look through time and time again.
