Author(s): Kaari Meng
This irresistible book packages the charm of author Kaari Meng and her first-hand knowledge of what makes a beautiful, French-inspired home, which comes from years of combing French flea markets for unique accessories, linens and more. Her shop, French General, offers handpicked linens and collectibles from the South of France, plus an array of products to awaken the senses. In this book she distills her sought-after sensibility into 40 projects that bring the sights, scents and textures of the French countryside into every room of the house. It includes projects such as lavender sachets, etched glasses, pillows, napkins, French potting boxes and herbal lotions. As an added bonus, the author has included a selection of her delightful signature-style vintage labels for the reader to use for gifts and decor, including hang tags, book plates and mailing labels.
