Creating the French Look
The French look is simple but the influences are many. Greys, whites and linens with Toile de Jouy is the most well known look but we also have chic and quirky Parisian influence, as well as the sunny and bright look from the south. In this book, Annie Sloan uses her vast experience as an interior designer to combine the use of paint, colour and fabrics to create the French look in 25 easy-to-follow projects. Published by CICO Books with commissioned photography by Christopher Drake.
Featuring 40 inspiring step-by-step projects, this book demonstrates the easy way to upcycle furniture and transform your home. You’ll learn how to work with colour and undertake projects in lots of different styles, including French, Boho Chic, Swedish, Country and Modern Contemporary. You’ll also learn several techniques such as distressing, colourwashing, gilding, decoupage, stencilling, dyeing fabric with paint and creating limed oak and faux marble effects.
