Carolyn Westbrook is a designer and decorator whose love affair with French styling began long before she ever traveled to France. Growing up in the US, her Southern heritage was infused with French influences—from the chic elegance of New Orleans to the romance of southern plantation houses. Carolyn’s subsequent journeys to France have only fueled her passion for French interiors and have influenced her designs and interiors ever since. “The French Inspired” has become her own signature style. Carolyn’s stunning plantation house, a sleek urban apartment, and a classically elegant town house showcase a variety of distinct styles that will leave you enamored with all that is French. Whether she has used a distressed and gilded mirror that oozes elegance, or a faded and frayed rug that exudes rustic charm, all of these ideas are essentially “French” in their inspiration. Carolyn Westbrook prides herself on these classic and timeless French-inspired interiors, and rather than reflecting the latest trends, she hopes they inspire longevity and a true romance with your own home. The French have mastered the art of this time-worn, yet sophisticated, style of living, and you too will fall in love with the colors, the textures, and the inspiration that is truly French.
