The New French Interior - Penny Drue Baird (Boek)

Through her first book, Bringing Paris Home, Penny Drue Baird established herself as an authority on all things French—interior design, flea market and antiques shopping, Parisian life, and stylish entertaining. In The New French Interior, she moves beyond the traditional historic styles to explore the design elements that make up the fresh, clean look—architectural details adapted from art deco, a monochromatic palette based on creams and ivories highlighted with rich browns and blacks, bold forms in furniture and lighting, and restrained tabletop settings.

To illustrate the style, Baird draws on ten of her own recent projects, apartment and house installations, and presents French precedents and influences through specially commissioned photography of Parisian interiors. Images of cafes, markets, shops, and street scenes add to the magical Parisian ambiance she creates.

"Penny Baird's intelligence and "heightened sensibility" are asintegral as her eye to the genius of her work. With characteristic French insistence on beauty even in the everyday Penny shows you how enhancing the look of your home can influence the overall experience of living in it." — Trish McEvoy

"Penny Baird embraces the new French interior with her innate taste, sensitive mastery of detail, and eclectic designpassions." — Gael Greene

"Beautifully photographed book of a younger, modern Parisienne look . . . Perfect for today." — Kenneth Jay Lane

Penny Baird is the quintessential Parisian New Yorker who composed the perfect mix of tradition and elegance paired with a French sensibility for our time. — Daniel Boulud
