The French look is simple but the influences are many. Greys, whites and linens with Toile de Jouy is the most well known look but we also have chic and quirky Parisian influence, as well as the sunny and bright look from the south. In this book, Annie Sloan uses her vast experience as an interior designer to combine the use of paint, colour and fabrics to create the French look in 25 easy-to-follow projects.
