Summary

Summary

Lucy Haywood is the creator of The Country Brocantes--home and lifestyle fairs held in idyllic rural surroundings. In Country Brocante Style, she introduces her pretty and accessible signature look into the home, fusing two enduring and appealing decorating traditions--English country style and French-inspired vintage styling. There's classic French "brocanterie"--old textiles, vintage furniture, and decorative pieces--alongside lifestyle brands, gardenalia, handmade textiles, cottage-garden flowers, and other homewares. In the first section, Country Brocante Style, Lucy leads you through the color palette of the Brocantes and discusses key pieces of furniture and decorative objects before presenting creative ideas for putting the look together. In the second section, Country Brocante Interiors, she pays a visit to the homes of the dealers and the buyers who flock to the fairs.

Decorative country style is more popular than ever and Country Brocante Style will inspire you to create this romantic, timeless style in your own home.


Author Notes

Lucy Haywood started her career as a designer for British Airways before going on to work for Lady Annabel Astor at OKA. However, her passion for interiors, antiques, and vintage treasures was sparked many years earlier when, as a tiny child, she was taken by her father to numerous antiques fairs and house clearances to hunt out hidden treasure. The Country Brocante fairs came into being when Lucy decided to create an exciting new event where visitors could shop and enjoy a day out and hobby dealers and professionals could sell their wares. The Country Brocante now takes place four times a year against a backdrop of some of England's most beautiful stately homes and scenery.
