Description


French tastemaker Cordelia de Castellane presents her inspirations and secrets to exquisite at-home entertaining and decor, organized according to the four seasons.
 


As France’s most prominent host and the artistic director of Dior Home and Baby Dior, Cordelia de Castellane is a leading ambassador of the Gallic lifestyle. Simply put, Cordelia is to French entertaining what Inès de la Fressange is to French style. Drawing from her illustrious career, family life, and lively social circle, she invites readers into her welcoming world of stylish hospitality with this new volume.
 
Organized according to the seasons of the year—winter, spring, summer, and fall—the chapters uncover Cordelia’s tips and inspirations for living and entertaining à la française. With individual sections dedicated to seasonal tableware, recipes, 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. Accompanying personal archival photos, exclusive images of vibrant table settings and decor at Cordelia’s gorgeous private residence in the French countryside brim with effortless flair. Complete with informative captions and texts, this book is a must-have guide on how to bring French joie de vivre to your home.

"It is clear only a few pages into Cordelia de Castellane’s delightfully chic 'Life in a French Country House' that the author’s eclectic but elegant aesthetic has been decades in the making." —DEPARTURES

"As France’s most prominent host and the artistic director of Dior Home and Baby Dior, de Castellane is a notable ambassador of the Gallic lifestyle. In fact I’m told she is to French entertaining what Inès de la Fressange is to French style (quite a distinction!) and there’s plenty of evidence to support that conjecture in the pages of this lush new book."  —INTERIOR DESIGN MASTER CLASS

"Layered table settings assembled from her designs for Dior, heirloom pieces and various things she’s collected over the years are photographed with rich detail. Between lovely mise en scenes are recipes for each of the seasons. It is the perfect book to curl up with on a cold autumn day while you dream of holidays in the South of France." —FORBES
