“The furnishings of France enchant the eye, Italian pieces sing to the soul.” ―Betty Lou Phillips, ASID
France and Italy have long been the go-to spots for fashionistas, serious foodies and design mavens. Rich patinas, satisfying earthen hues and myriad natural materials―translate into timeless, unabashedly elegant yet livable rooms appropriate for our times. Award-winning designer Betty Lou Phillips shows how the best from two European countries combine to create la dolce vita―the good life.
