HERS Book giveaway!

A room should captivate while being inviting; it should not only be comfortable but should make you feel at your best.  Jacqueline de Montravel

This sentence truly stood out to me when I received my preview copy of this book.  HERS is a dreamy book, filled with inspiration for carving out a delightful space just for you, whether you translate that into a whole house design, or a little nook somewhere just for yourself.  It’s been out since just before the holidays, but since I received another delightful signed copy, I am excited to give it to one of YOU!


Whether you are happily single or a mother of four, having a room that pleases you is what we all long for. After all, what woman doesn’t want a modern, romantic, feminine, grown-up space that she can call her own—where she can listen to music and engross herself in the pages of Jane Austen?

Hers offers hundreds of stylish ways for creating your own private retreat, even when your bedroom doubles as your living room or when delicate furnishings don’t seem compatible with kid-friendly living. With some thoughtful rethinking of your home’s layout and some imagination, you can dedicate part of a shared space to your own interests, and Jacqueline deMontravel will show you how.
These interiors celebrate the beauty and comfort of feminine design with color, furniture shapes, and attractive accessories.  Not just in romantic or French style, all styles are celebrated by Jacqueline, this book is page after page of colorful inspiration you will want to look at again and again.

I am so blessed that our own home is featured in a few pages, our bedroom, below, my little office at home, and Mr. FrenchGardenHouse’s garden. { You can find us on pages: Title Page, 21, 164, 165,184, 185}

    I think I first saw this in Romantic Homes and loved the look! It would be great to add to my collection!

  4. What a fun book. Romantic and feminine decorating makes me feel so comfy.

    I’m also a blog follower, and a Facebook fan.

  5. This sounds wonderful. How sweet of you to offer the book and give such a yummy description of it. 🙂

    (new blog name for me…formerly ‘a contemplative joy’

  6. christine jaeger

    i have followed you for simply ages and love it all.. also posted again on fb.. ????

  7. How beautiful – my soul feels more at rest just looking at the pictures. Would love to design such a space in my home.

  8. After living in Costa Rica three years, I’m rebuilding my beautiful book collection…again. The simple French white trend is a pretty look. One that I’m attempting to duplicate in my own home. I love looking at your blog.

  9. I actually have the original tear out sheet of at least one of the photos featured here as it first appeared in R. Homes. Love the magazine, love that they introduced me to FGH, and love Jacquelyn’s flair for style.

  10. This looks like an amazing book full of great ideas. I’d love to win it.

  11. Hello, Love to join this give away. I have put in my side bar the give away button and followed you as well.
    wish I win 😉

  12. I love French Garden House style! Follow you on Facebook and love to pin photos from this blog on pinterest! The book will be a great addition to my interior and garden design book collection!

  13. Jackie

    Such a nice book filled with all those beautiful pictures. I can use all the tips & inspiration I can get! 😉

  14. Deborah Cole

    Love your blog and love that you’re giving away a beautiful book like this!

  15. Michelle

    Congratulations on being included with all this amazing inspiration! Can’t wait to see more!

  16. Renay L. Gilley

    Love to dream of what I’d do to my own home if I could, I comb thrift shops and sometimes find French pieces.
    Thank you for the lovely things you display on your sight.

  17. I can see myself curled up in my chair with this beautiful book and a cup of tea.

  18. Bonnie Jean Fulcher

    I love the idea of a space of my own… a room … a corner… even just a desk or workspace with my own feminine touch and with all of the things I love the most close by. I would love to win this book. It looks beautiful just from the bits I have seen thus far. I live in a house full of three masculine pack rats… my hardworking husband and delightful sons… but I long for a bit of elegance and femininity and I need a push. This book would be just the push that I need and lots of great inspiration.

  19. I love French Garden House (you may know this!). I am intrigued by this book because it captures my thoughts about having a beautiful space of one’s own – even in a home full of ‘guys’. I also have another of Jacqueline de Montravel’s books, The Vintage Table, which is also a book to dream with while gathering around one’s precious objects.

  20. Chris Gerke

    I am posting your page on facebook and hope to win this fabulous book. The front cover is the living room of Paris Hotel Boutique, I think.

  21. Need. Help. Now. Please send book asap. :)The few clips above have inspired me so much. Thank you French Garden House. . .you are lovely.

  22. Germaine Ganteaume

    Being of French decent, I love everything to do with France and French design. My living room is French Provincial, my bedroom has a French feeling, but my den needs work. I’d love the magazine as well as the book “Hers”.

  23. Love your blog and your store! Would love to win this gorgeous book!

  24. Tricia

    What a wonderful book! I would love to win a copy of it!!! 🙂

  25. Martha (Marty) Last

    How is it possible that I have not been aware of French Garden House! Gorgeous.

  26. Patricia Anderson

    My mother was unhappily married–which I understood at about age 5. She was extremely intelligent and had been teaching in a country schjool at about age 18.

    We were together all day, and she taught me many thing. That is how we spent the days during the long days of winter, sitting under a quilt in her wicker rocker—close to the coal furnace.

    It sounds as if I am from the last century–but when you have to deal with the cold, life becomes quite primitive.

    She ordered miniatures of classical paintings. She talked about books, and she had my brother and me practise spelling words. We listened to opera on the radio on Saturdays. She told us the stories–I thought they had gone through a whole book in the musical introduction.

    I gathered my taste when she told about how she would “like her house” I decorate my house as she told me her impossible dreams. Crystal chandeliers, French doors to an enclosed patio. Paintings by Boucher and…….
    No shabby chic for me! I have been fortunate to “find items in second hand shops, antique shops, and rarely but sometimes “new”.

    My taste is not widely appreciated in my neighborhood. BUT I didn’t do it to please them –just my mother and Me”

  27. Does it get any more beautiful? So many dreamy ideas! Love it!

  28. I have been following you on FB for quite some time. Love your blog. This book has the same qualities as your blog. I would love to win a copy.

  29. Patricia

    Love you things! Such a joy to receive your updates.

  30. This bedroom looks so familiar. I think I’ve stayed there!

  31. Sharon Sheehy

    My Irish grandmother use to always talk about “the days gone by,” how sweet and beautiful were her sentiments to me of romance and beauty in the little things she would share. Your website, and this book reminds me so much of what she spoke of, and brings to life with such vivid color all that captured my heart as I hung on every word as she spoke. She had a collection of plates, none of which matched, but they all came together with unsurpassed beauty as she would go about setting her table for her guests. Her little china cabinet was full of her favorite things which always delighted me every time I came to visit. Your website, and I have a feeling this book as well, reminds me of her china cabinet…every time I open up and look at all the precious things being offered, it takes me back “to days gone by!” Thank you!

  32. Tierney Fox

    This genre of book lifts me out of the gray days of winter. Keep inspiring me! I need this book!!

    Our lives can always use luscious eye candy! And these days mine especially- for very personal reasons–Thanks for the treat-Chris

  37. Louise

    The pages you have shown from this book are so inspiring and beautiful. I am in the process of decorating our ‘retirement’ home which is over the road from the ocean with beautiful fresh ocean views. White, pale blue and white stripe, with pink roses are the base of my decor colours bringing it all together with the ocean and French style. This book is a ‘must have’ for inspirational ideas!
