Essentially French ~ Josephine Ryan

This is one of my favourite books.


I say one as Josephine Ryan has written a handful which I also pour over.  Essentially French has a distinctive look all the images in this book are unique, compelling and beautiful.  Split into three categories of simple, elegant and eclectic each section filled with homes that relate to the title.

Each home be it a house in London, Parisian apartment or Provençal farmhouse are all owned by antique dealers who all share a passion that epitomise French style.  All with very different looks but one key element joins them; that being each piece of traditional French furniture featuring in their homes.




It makes me dream of that holiday home that I would adore to own in France, one day maybe once rich and famous!!   If there is only one book that you invest in this season make it Essentially French.
