Coming Home to Nature

The French Art of Countryfication


The call of the wild-fresh air, open spaces, green gardens, a gentler rhythm-has never been stronger, nor looked so stylish as in these homes nestled in the countryside and crafted with style by families who took the leap into a new brand of country living.

Has the hustle and bustle of city life begun to feel just a bit overwhelming? Do you ever dream of open skies and fields? This volume lightheartedly approaches all the questions of those who want live or dream of living a life away from hyperactive urban centers: how to live alongside nature, to garden, to live with animals; how to dress to fit your new setting (stay warm! stay dry!); how to furnish and organize your larger country house; how to host beautifully relaxed soirées where you’ll linger over diner with your guests. Alongside a dozen portraits of individuals and families who have already converted to country living, offering paths and courage to those still hesitant, you will find tips, insights, practical advice, even recipes and methods for homemade furniture.

Whether you are still indecisive or already living your dream life, this book is filled with inspiration and thoughtful advice for tackling every aspect of country living, and for writing a new chapter, refreshed and renewed.

More and more city-dwellers dream of a life reconnected with nature, these three ex-Parisians-and a dozen families who have inspired them to make the leap-have already dared to start anew and deliver in this volume their fun and lively vision for modern country living.
