Home Sweet Maison: The French Art of Making a Home by Danielle Postel-Vinay
I am a huge fan of books from other countries that focus on a single topic or subject. I enjoyed Cosy from England, Ichigo Ichie from Japan, Making Memories, Hygge, and Lykee from Denmark, Sisu from Finland, and Lagom from Sweden just to name a few. Since I’m not well versed in French culture nor can say I had a pleasant first impression in France, I figured it was time to take a chance and read Home Sweet Maison.
When a space performs every function, it loses its purpose. A room without a purpose is a joyless room.Danielle Postel-Vinay, Home Sweet Maison
Danielle started at the front door of the home and beautifully described the purpose and decor. I felt like I was on a HGTV International House Hunter show touring a French home. The book was well written and moved well but did not overstay its welcome in any one room.
I learned about how to extend the life of clothes as Danielle explained about the European-owned stain removing brand called Carbona. Which as I continue my no spend journey, I do appreciate the value of repairing than replacing.
If you are looking for a gentle, kind, interesting read, then this is the perfect book for you.
