THE FRENCH COUNTRY DIARY 2015 features vibrant Provençal prints from Les Olivades; ,$24.95 US; $27.95 CAN; ISBN 978-1-4197-1263-0

An 18th century Provençal toile de Jouy from Les Olivades in Saint-Etienne-du-Grès graces the interior hard-cover of the 2015 Diary


The elegant slipcase of the French Country Diary's 27th edition features a vibrant cherry-red and white Provençal fabric pattern from the venerable Olivades textiles company in Saint-Etienne-du Grès, embellished by an elegant white floral border fabric . Within the slipcase lies a linen-textured hardcover book with a gorgeous yellow and red toile de Jouy which displays the year ‘2015’ in a decorative medallion. Vintage typography and fifty-eight evocative new photographs by renowned Paris photographer Guillaume de Laubier enhance the captivating design of this unique engagement calendar.


Each of the week-at-a-glance spreads offers a vignette of the French countryside, including gardens, private homes, villages and inspiring landscapes. In this year's Diary we visit an 18th-century village home in Burgundy; stroll along a sandy path crowded with buttercups on the Vieux Salins Beach in Hyères; spend a holiday afternoon at an elegant apartment in Lyons; explore romantic gardens of the historic Chateau de Valmer near Vouvray in the Loire Valley; admire the bounty of fresh summer vegetables at Sisteron's Saturday morning market; and enjoy a savory lunch in Paris at the new Bistrot Belhara on the Left Bank. Design elements are as handsome as ever. Lush four-color endpapers, generous space for jotting daily notes, a ribbon stitched in to mark each week, and back matter that includes decorative address pages are what the Diary’s worldwide legion of fans have come to expect.
