If you only buy one new book this fall, this is the one to get! Released this month, LIFE IN A FRENCH COUNTRY HOUSE: ENTERTAINING FOR ALL SEASONS offers an enchanting glimpse into the dreamy world of Cordelia de Castellane, France’s most prominent host and the artistic director of Dior Home and Baby Dior. Organized by the four seasons of the year, the chapters uncover Cordelia’s tips and inspirations for living and entertaining à la française.
With individual sections dedicated to seasonal tableware, recipes and menus, interior design, flower arranging, and more, readers will delight in learning how to re-create chic French style for special events and everyday occasions alike—from a summer lunch on the grass to a magical Christmas. Accompanying personal archival photos are positively spellbinding, including exclusive images of vibrant table settings and the elegant decor of Cordelia’s spectacular 15th century home in the French countryside. Complete with informative captions and texts and heirloom family recipes, LIFE IN A FRENCH COUNTRY HOUSE is a lovely guide on how to bring French joie de vivre to your home all year long.
