Vintage french Style by Carolyn Westbrook
Lucy Haywood is the creator of The Country Brocantes - home and lifestyle fairs held in idyllic rural surroundings. In Country Brocante Style, she introduces her pretty and accessible signature look into the home, fusing two classic and enduring decorating traditions - English country style and French-inspired vintage styling. There's plenty of classic French 'brocanterie' - old textiles, vintage furniture and decorative pieces - alongside lifestyle brands, gardenalia, handmade textiles, cottage-garden flowers and other homewares. In the first section, Country Brocante Style, Lucy leads you through the colour palette of the Brocantes and discusses key pieces of furniture and decorative pieces before presenting creative ideas for putting the look together. In the second section, Country Brocante Interiors, she pays a visit to the homes of the dealers and the buyers who flock to the fairs. Decorative country style is more popular than ever and The Country Brocante Style will inspire you to create this romantic, timeless style in your own home.
