French Bistro Style Decorating
Furnish your French bistro with fun theme accessories
Characteristics of the French Country style kitchen - rustic, old and warm and very similar to the Tuscany style kitchen.
Warm earthy colors - sunny yellows, burnt rust, grass green and ocean blues – are all colors found in the French country kitchen design style.
Natural elements, wooden beams, textured walls, accented with decorative ceramic and pottery decorations, rooster accents, copper pots, and soft furnishings dressed in toile and vibrant red blue yellow colored fabrics. Add to the country farmhouse style living with large chunky wooden tables with ladder back chairs, table linens that reflect patterns from nature - leaves, florals or scenes from everyday life.
Display oils, vinegars, fresh fruit, vegetables, pasta and coffee in decorative containers as accessories. Toss in some grape accents for a little more French flavour.
The French country kitchen represents country living that is uniquely French.
Café Life Paris
What could be more Parisian than a cafe? In Cafe Life Paris you'll discover an extraordinary variety of places in which to cultivate the art of living as the French do.
The French Cafe
If you love Paris, you love cafes. Take a spin around Paris, urban areas of France, and out to the French countryside, seeking cafes of particular distinction or charm. "For the price of a cup of coffee you can stay as long as you want" is the philosophy of cafes; and all the cafes Boyer and Morin feature simply beg to be patronized for hours on end. Her prose imparts a good history of French cafes and their sociological and cultural place. A helpful directory for travelers is appended, listing "a hundred cafes of character in and around Paris and in the provinces of France, chosen for their decor, location or ambience."
Authentic Bistros of Paris
If you're Paris-bound and looking for an easy pocket tote to take along - and have heard about the famous bistros of Paris - don't miss Authentic Bistros of Paris: there may be one on every block but this book separates wheat from chafe. It first appeared in France and now is accessible to U.S. audiences, selecting over fifty bistros which stand apart due to regional foods, wines, and atmospheres.
Country French Kitchens
Country French style conveys the warmth, beauty, comfort, charm, and joie de vivre-the art of living- so many of us desire in our kitchens. But how does one design the kitchen space so that it becomes authentically-quintessentially - Country French in style? With a detailed exploration of the design philosophies and attitudes of Country French style, as well as its concrete elements, Country French Kitchens teaches you to fluently speak the language of the design style so that you can translate this wonderful look to your own kitchen. Author Carolina Fernandez imparts design, architectural and inspirational ideas as well as practical strategies for bringing authentic Country French style into the kitchens of those living outside the boundaries of France. Country French Kitchens explores the fundamentals of the style, including its characteristic materials, use of appliances, tactile elements, the importance of art and antiques, and the style's inherent tenets of design-simplicity, practicality, beauty, and joie de vivre. Country French Kitchens is the indispensable resource book for any reader or homeowner interested in implementing Country French style in his or her own kitchen.
Joie de Vivre: Simple French Style for Everyday Living
In a funny way, this is sort of a self-help book for people who admire the French lifestyle, and for those who believe that good food is the secret to a happy life. The premise of the book is that you will find "domestic happiness" when you learn to enjoy the most mundane details of your everyday life: "It's about making time for family, growing some vegetables in your garden, chatting with the butchers." Quality of life, explains Arbor, is only improved when your pillowcases smell like lavender, and you make your own hot chocolate.
French Country Kitchens: French Kitchen Design from Simple to Spectacular
beautiful celebration of France’s real-life kitchens, French style authority Linda Dannenberg invites us into dozens of kitchens that capture the spirit of their regions. Remarkable new “eighteenth-century” kitchen in the heart of Paris’s old garment district designed entirely with elements dating from the 1700s; an airy, open family kitchen in a Provençal house that was once a grain mill; a dramatic kitchen, bold in color and scale, in an elegant farmhouse in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence; a romantic country kitchen, illuminated by a Palladian-style window from an old abbey, in a welcoming village surrounded by the farmland of the Île-de France; and a casual Parisian space - once an atelier occupied by Pablo Picasso - featuring a kitchen with subtle, restrained mosaics.
Whether you design a rustic French country kitchen, French bistro or an urban Parisian cafe,
dressed in bold colors, faux brick and vintage accents, the kitchen is still the heart of the home, so do make it fun while at the same time functional.
