Book Signing & Author Event at Bridgehampton location, Columbus Day

Latest Publication by Penny Drue Baird

 English Country Antiques are thrilled to announce an upcoming event with one of AD's top 100 designers Penny Drue Baird.

Monday October 10th 2011
Columbus Day 11am - 3pm

Penny Drue Baird has established herself as an authority on all things French: interior design, flea market and antiques shopping, Parisian life, and stylish entertaining. In THE NEW FRENCH INTERIOR by Penny Drue Baird (The Monacelli Press; on-sale September 27, 2011), she moves beyond the traditional historic styles to explore the design elements that make up the fresh, clean look – architectural details adapted from art deco, a monochromatic palette based on creams and ivories highlighted with rich browns and blacks, bold forms in furniture and lighting, and restrained tabletop settings.
To illustrate the style, Baird draws on ten of her own recent projects, apartment and house installations in New York and in the Hamptons, and presents French influences through specially commissioned photography of Parisian interiors. Images of cafes, markets, shops, and street scenes will add to the magical Parisian ambiance she creates, and the book also includes shopping tips and resources in France and the United States.
