The heart and soul of the French country home - and the source of France's legendary art de vivre - is the kitchen. Distinguished by striking craftsmanship, bold colours and vintage accents, the French country kitchen - whether a rustic retreat or an urban oasis - is always unique and inviting. In this beautiful celebration of France's real-life kitchens, Linda Dannenberg invites us into dozens of kitchens that capture the spirit of their regions, carefully examining the design, the priorities of the owners, and the details - from colour palettes to collectibles - that create inviting, functional and personal spaces. With an extensive directory of sources, more than 200 full-colour photographs, and evocative text highlighting a bounty of original ideas, "French Country Kitchens" is a lush and inspiring guide to re-creating a little corner of France in the heart of your own home.
