La Vie est Belle, The elegant art of living in the French style
by Henrietta Heald
In La Vie est Belle, Henrietta Heald has crossed the Channel to explore the multiple joys that are integral to living in France. The Francophile author selects elements of French life that perfectly evoke the traditions and charms of the country, from food and wine to antiques and textiles.
Exploring 15 interiors across five regions: Paris and the North, Brittany and Normandy, Poitou-Charentes and Aquitaine, Midi-Pyrenees and Languedoc, and finally Provence and the Cote D’Azur, this book offers a stylistic and gastronomic flavour of each area. Photographs enhance the regional journey, showing beautifully observed scenes as varied as busy flea markets, fields of lavender or intimate chateau interiors.
The result is an alluring book that is both a visual inspiration for interior design and a practical guide for the taste buds.
