Designer and decorator Carolyn Westbrook’s love affair with all that is French inspired began long before she ever traveled to France. Growing up in the US, her Southern heritage was infused by French influences—from the chic elegance of New Orleans to the romance of southern plantation houses. Subsequent travels to France filled her with a passion that has influenced her designs and interiors ever since and “The French Inspired†has become her own signature style. Immerse yourself in her own beautiful plantation house, a sleek urban apartment, or a classically elegant town house. Each home featured has its own distinctive style, but all are essentially “French†in their inspiration, whether it comes from a distressed, gilded carved mirror, or a faded, frayed rug that exudes age in just the right places and could never be purchased from a department store. Carolyn Westbrook prides herself on these French-inspired interiors that are classic and timeless but never stuffy. These interiors are not about the latest trends, but meant to inspire longevity and a true romance with your own home. The French have mastered the art of this time-worn yet sophisticated style of living, and you too will fall in love with the colors, the textures, and the inspiration that is truly French.

Mention the French and most minds overflow with symbols of their panache: sensuous velvets, leopard prints, toile, silk taffeta curtains, deep bullion trim, and eighteenth-century furnishings. The truth is, it is difficult not to fall under the influence of the French, whose uncommon grace is inherent in everything they do. Inspired by their rich cultural heritage and the breathtaking beauty of their country, their celebrated approach to living, dressing and dining is as distinctive as their decorating, which is undeniably the essence of French chic. From their rock-crystal chandeliers and Aubusson rugs, to their exquisite tapestries, feather-filled armchairs, and painstakingly carved armoires, the American appetite for French style is endless. Following on the heels of Provencal Interiors: French Country Style in America and French by Design, in French Influences, Betty Lou Phillips delves into the world of design francais once again, illustrating through lavish color photography how, room by room, French elegance remas the creme de la creme.

The perfect balance of high-end French pastries and home baking. This elegant, must-have cookbook offers exceptional recipes with exquisite results--perfect for passionate home bakers. An updated version of the best-selling debut from Giselle Courteau, this beautiful cookbook is packed with stunning recipes with spectacular results. The ideas from this cookbook can be traced back to Giselle's experiences teaching English in Japan in 2007. It was in Tokyo that Giselle, a self-taught baker, first discovered French macarons and became determined to replicate the delicate confections at home. After experimenting with hundreds of different recipes, all in a tiny toaster oven, Giselle finally perfected a macaron recipe that inspired her to open a French Patisserie in Canada in 2009. That macaron recipe is featured in this cookbook and macarons have been (and continue to be) the bestselling item at Duchess Bake Shop since it first opened. Macarons aside, Giselle's expertise in all things French patisserie is clear throughout this cookbook. Inside, you'll find standout recipes for Pains au Chocolat, Brioche, and Tartiflette. The cookbook also features contemporary twists on classics including The Duchess, a modern take on the Swedish Princess Cake; Duchess St. Honoré, a combination of two pastries (puff and pâte à choux); and delicious Canadian-inspired pastries such as Farmer's Saskatoon Pie, Butter Tarts, and the Courteau Family Tourtière. This new edition will also include Duchess Bake Shop's famed Buche de Noel, a perfect recipe for the holiday season! With ten chapters of approachable recipes that have been tested and re-tested, Giselle's instructions demystify the baking process. This cookbook will inspire readers to bake with confidence using a range of baking equipment, techniques, and ingredients. The book's refined design captures the sophistication and chic decadence of Giselle's beloved bake shop.

There is a subtle but significant French heritage in North Carolina. Towns such as Bath, Beaufort, New Bern, and La Grange are testimony to the settlements of French Huguenots in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The city of Fayetteville is named after the Marquis de Lafayette, a French ally during the American Revolution. The first European explorers to the North Carolina region were, in fact, French (1524). French Huguenots migrated to the state as early as 1690 and many North Carolinians have last names of French origin. North Carolina has many other place names and remnants of French presence since the early colonial period. This book traces the historical presence of the French in NC from the state's origins to the present and tells the story of a little-known but important part of the state's cultural heritage.
