Interior and textile designer Kathryn Ireland's new book, Summers in France ($22), hit bookshelves on Friday, and it is one of my must haves this April. With entertaining tips, home decorating rules for vacation spots, and summertime recipes all culled from years spent at her house in the South of France, the book is as much a lifestyle guide as it is a lesson in Ireland's distinct decorating style. But moreover, it's a memoir about a wonderful woman's elegantly understated life, chock-full of inspiring, picture-perfect images. I've taken the liberty of giving you a little sneak peek of this book. Here are 10 reasons to read Summers in France!
