Book Review...The New Eighteen Century Style

I recently finished this book and I thought you might like to have a sneak peek at some of the photographs that came from The New Eighteen Century Style book, text written by Michelle LaLande and photographs by Gilles Trillard.  If a picture is worth a thousand words then you will be talking about this book for some time.  I have written a book review for Fifi Flowers of the Reading is Fashionable blog and I hope that you will pay her blog a visit and read about it here.

Isn't this a gorgeous photograph

I love the white and transparency of this room and the gorgeous banquette
I love the doors as you enter the bedroom and the simplicity of the furnishings
A Beautiful Display Of Urns
Detailed mantle
A quick note to let all of you who visit that I will be out of commission for about a week or so after having to have some unexpected gallbladder surgery.  Yep, I had to have my gallbladder removed and because a stone had gotten into the bile duct and the surgeon could not get to it I had to have yet another surgery the very next day by a different Dr. to remove the one in the duct.  Needless, to say, I am not feeling too well.

Please leave your comments about the post on this great book because I always look forward to hearing from you!

  5. Kris, I am so sorry to hear about your two surgeries. I hope that you are feeling much better soon. I have this book and love it. The mantel in my living room was inspired by an image in this book. Be well. Mona
