The furnishings of France enchant the eye, Italian pieces sing to the soul. -Betty Lou Phillips, ASID
France and Italy have long been the go-to spots for fashionistas, serious foodies and design mavens. Rich patinas, satisfying earthen hues and myriad natural materials-translate into timeless, unabashedly elegant yet livable rooms appropriate for our times. Award-winning designer Betty Lou Phillips shows how the best from two European countries combine to create la dolce vita-the good life-in ways that are unexpected and fresh, timeless, and unabashedly elegant yet livable.
