Wondering how you can achieve chic, French style in your own home? Renowned set designer and stylist Erin Swift set out traveling France and the US to find out for herself; her new book French Accents, to be released next week, lets us in on the secrets.
In the book, Swift walks the reader through a francophile's dream: the incredible French interiors of renowned artists, architects, and designers that she has spent years scouting. Highlighting the best of the best, the book features entire rooms, but Swift excels most at indicating how exquisite, thoughtful details can transform a space.
Swift organized the book like a true designer, with comprehensive chapters on Color, Art and Furnishings, Objects and Accents, Structure and Texture. Throughout its pages, Jonny Valient's photographs feature dozens of options for molding, stone, tile flooring, frames, doorknobs, and textiles—countless practical ideas for any budget to achieve that je ne sais quoi effortlessness of the French look.
