I am a huge fan of Kathryn Ireland, so I was really excited to check out her new book "Summers in France." Flipping through the pages of her book, it's like taking a peek inside her personal photo album. The book includes notes from friends, photos of her kids growing up, sunflower fields, and for design enthusiasts, photos of her farmhouse in the countryside of France.
More than a book of beautiful images, "Summers in France" offers Kathryn's tips on entertaining, decorating guest rooms, and even a few recipes. The book's informal and personal nature makes me feel as if I had actual first hand experience of spending my summers in rural France. "Summers in France" reminds me that I need to let loose and just enjoy life a little more — AND book a trip to Europe this summer!
I also just found out that Kathryn is going to be one of the cast members on Bravo's new show, Million Dollar Decorators. I will be tuning in for sure!
