Mention the French and most minds overflow with symbols of their panache: sensuous velvets, leopard prints, toile, silk taffeta curtains, deep bullion trim, and eighteenth-century furnishings. The truth is, it is difficult not to fall under the influence of the French, whose uncommon grace is inherent in everything they do. Inspired by their rich cultural heritage and the breathtaking beauty of their country, their celebrated approach to living, dressing and dining is as distinctive as their decorating, which is undeniably the essence of French chic. From their rock-crystal chandeliers and Aubusson rugs, to their exquisite tapestries, feather-filled armchairs, and painstakingly carved armoires, the American appetite for French style is endless. Following on the heels of Provencal Interiors: French Country Style in America and French by Design, in French Influences, Betty Lou Phillips delves into the world of design francais once again, illustrating through lavish color photography how, room by room, French elegance remas the creme de la creme.

This elegant 26th edition of the French Country Diary employs vintage typography and 58 evocative new photographs by Guillaume de Laubier to enhance the captivating design of this unique engagement calendar. The gleaming slipcase features a vibrant blue and white Provençal fabric pattern with a contrasting border fabric from the Olivades company in Saint-Rémy, while the linen-textured hardcover book itself has a red floral design that displays the year “2014” in a decorative medallion. Each of the week-at-a-glance spreads offers a vignette of the French countryside, including gardens, private homes, villages, and inspiring landscapes. This year’s diary visits the posh resort of Biarritz, poised on the shores of the Atlantic in the Pays Basque; strolls through the romantic gardens of Eugénie-les-Bains in the Landes region; explores the palm-decked harbor town of Villefranche-sur-Mer on the Mediterranean, with its pastel-hued hillside homes; and enjoys a pre-Christmas evening on the Left Bank at the Deux Magots café. Also included are lush four-color endpapers, generous space for jotting daily notes, a ribbon stitched in to mark each week, and back matter that includes decorative address pages.

Newly updated edition of the first book in French and English devoted to Nicole de Vésian and her work After a career as a designer working for the great design houses, especially Hermès, Nicole de Vésian (1916-1996) moved to Provence and created her first garden. Her green and grey tapestry-gardens soon inspired gardeners and landscapers around the world. Today, few gardens have been imitated as readily as those of Nicole de Vésian, because, writes Louisa Jones, 'she has a feeling for space like musicians have a feeling for music.' Her finest work was La Louve, her own garden in Bonnieux, a hilltop village in the Luberon area of Provence. On the narrow terraces around her Bonnieux home, Nicole de Vésian created her own very personal garden in a minimal but far from austere style, composed mainly of heath-land plants (varieties of thyme, lavender, rosemary, rockrose and box tree), in which she pruned all her plants to cushion shapes of varying, yet superbly proportioned sizes. Nicole de Vésian advises us to 'learn to listen to the soil.' Her plant sculptures are always somehow a reference to the wild hills of the surrounding countryside, reflecting an age-old Mediterranean landscape mindset, with a distinctly modern twist. The work is also a tribute to Nicole de Vésian and her life. Her close friend, Louisa Jones, shares her own thoughts on the work of this atypical creator, accompanied by accounts from her friends and pupils: Christian Lacroix, the nursery owner Jean-Marie Rey, the landscape artists Arnaud Maurières, Éric Ossart and Marc Nucera, as well as the garden historians Roy Strong and John Brookes.
