from The Dallas Morning News
It's easy to envy Italy and France's culinary chops, fashion-savvy DNA and timeless interiors. Dallas designer Betty Lou Phillips celebrates those countries' sophisticated, captivating styles in her latest coffee-table book, The Allure of French and Italian Decor (Gibbs Smith, $50) out this month. “In the discriminating world of interior design, France and Italy have forever commanded respect with their fine furniture, regal array of textiles and treasured silk tapestries,” Phillips says in an email. "As it happens, even proud Americans readily concede that the French and Italians have an edge when it comes to creating artful, elegant interiors with the aura of romance and glamour."
