French Style (Thames and Hudson, 1982) is an inspiring, richly illustrated guidebook to chic, elegant and charming interiors and French life-style. The book has been compiled by Suzanne Slesin with contributions from Stafford Cliff, Jacques Dirand, Andrée Putnam, and Robert Rosenblum.
Taken often in natural light and conceived with an artist’s eye for composition, Jacques Dirand’s photographs present a luminous vision of French interiors. Town and country houses, flats, lofts, ateliers and châteaux demonstrate the range of French design tastes and many translatable decorating ideas. More than twenty-five homes are shown in the first and second parts of the book; in the third, Suzanne Slesin describes in detail the functions and histories of the rooms. Design styles range from the refined interpretations for French high-tech to the rusticated simplicity of the French country look.
