6 Faudree, Charles; Van Deventer, M.J.; Jordan, Jenifer [Photographer] Charles Faudree's French Country Signature (First Edition)
Salt Lake City, UT Gibbs Smith, Publisher 2003 1586852884 / 9781586852887 First Edition Hardcover Fine Fine Hardcover Illustrated 
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.Two toned cloth with gold lettering on spine and front cover. Illustrated. 176pp. First Edition. Solid copy. Full refund if not satisfied.
