Madeleine Castaing

Speaking of the French and their love of Madeleine Castaing fabric, I am eagerly awaiting the release of The World of Madeleine Castaing.  The book, written by the lovely Emily Evans Eerdmans, with a Preface by Frederic Castaing and a Foreword by Jacques Grange, will be released October 26th but is available now for pre-order.  According to the publisher, "This lavishly illustrated volume—the first on her work—explores in-depth the elements of her style, and examines how she crafted interiors so emotive that visitors felt that they had stepped into a Balzac novel or a Proustian recollection."  As far as I am concerned, Madeleine consistently created glamorous interiors and is the only decorator that I am aware of that managed to pull off plastic flowers successfully! 

Want a sneak peak at the making of the book?  Emily's blog features photos from her research trips to Paris as well as images that weren't able to make it into the book.
