"Decors Barbares features the author's own homes, where her
folkloric textiles and romantic decoration are on full display."--

"Of all the big-gun design books coming out this season, none has been more hotly anticipated than that of the textile designer and alchemist Nathalie Farman-Farma. The pages of Decors Barbares: The Enchanting Interiors of Nathalie Farman-Farma depict a world of pattern upon pattern, of nostalgia for a past that Mongiardino made grand, Zeffirelli made fantastical, but only Nathalie made sweet, cool, and relatable."-- "Elle Decor"
