About this title:
Provençal houses are true homes. Warm shades of ochre glow from the walls and roofs, weathered doors shine, and reflections glance off glazed ceramics and strike printed cotton tablecloths. This volume showcases the architectural diversity of Provençal houses and their interiors, gardens, and decorative art traditions. Images of gold-hued walls, iron balustrades, leafy terraces, and painted shutters inspire thoughts of balmy days in the sun. Aromatic lavender in terracotta pots and almond trees casting shade over cobbled courtyards evoke the magic of Provence-style living.
The reader wanders up a stone staircase, past brightly painted walls and across tiled floors, through a variety of rooms ranging from a sun dappled kitchen to an ornate drawing room and shaded bedroom. From plain rustic benches and beds to delicate walnut armchairs and elaborate dressers, all the painted and polished accoutrements of a Provençal home are featured. From tableware to what lies beneath, to traditional flowerprint fabrics and intricate quilted textiles, the decorative florishes of Provence provide boundless inspiration for the home.
