Christmas Giveaway! The Allure of French & Italian Decor

 
I'm a firm believer in spending time with family, friends, and a good decor book for the holidays.
So I am super excited to be able to offer a copy of Betty Lou Phillips' book
"The Allure of French and Italian Decor"
as a Christmas giveaway to one lucky reader!
 
 
Acclaimed interior designer and author Betty Lou Phillips has brought together hundreds of beautiful design images in this large, coffee table book.  
 
 
 
 
I'm sure you'll spend lots of time pouring over the inspiring images, just as I did.
 
 
The pair of settees in this space made me drool. The silk velvet bolsters are to die for.
 
 
 
 
These french oil paintings on canvas kinda/sorta remind me of the antique french wallpaper panels that hang in my living room.
 
This giveaway also includes Betty Lou's  holiday book,
 "The Night Before Christmas in Paris"! 
 
 
This delightful little book, featuring charming illustrations, tells a fun story
of Mrs. Claus in Paris at Christmastime.
You'll love it!
 
 
 
For a chance to win both books leave a comment to this post.
It's that easy.
Anonymous comments are welcome; just make sure to leave your e-mail address in the comment.
 
Comments will close on Friday, December 21 at noon EST and a winner will be drawn shortly thereafter.
 
Good luck! And as always, thanks for visiting a perfect gray. 
You guys are the best!

Love the gray tonal stripes in that bathroom! I even like when the matte and shine of the same color is striped as well. So great!
