The writer and photographer Sébastien Siraudeau has already uncovered home inspiration from Frances guest- houses, antique shops, and flea markets in his previous books Vintage French Interiors and French Style at Home. Now he turns his experienced eye to the hidden gems of interior design in the French countryside and unveils the wealth of decorative inspiration they have to offer. The vibrancy of these hidden retreats is demon-strated beautifully and, as the pages unfold, the reader is struck by a wealth of inspiration from the colors, seasons, and personal stories that combine to form these subtly elegant creations. Siraudeau has a rare talent for finding homes that combine gently-aged vintage pieces in a contemporary and relaxed atmosphere. True style can be discovered in the most unexpected and varied destinations, as Siraudeau masterfully shows in chapters ranging from seemingly humble hamlets or farmyards to châteaux in flickering candlelight. This invitation over the threshold of such inherently picturesque households is a temptation no design enthusiast could resist.

Filled with checklists, money-saving tips, and strategies for success (such as “Focus on your friendship” and “Have a sense of humor”) the book offers ideas for sensational showers (consider wine-tastings and spa treatments) and even gives the bridesmaids a game plan for getting dresses they’ll actually like!

Geoffrey Wheatcroft's hugely entertaining and well researched history of the Tour de France is already established as the definitive account of cycling's greatest event. Since the book was last published in 2007, much has changed. Bradley Wiggins' historic victory in 2012 - the first Briton ever to secure the yellow jersey - brought him a knighthood and garnered more interest in the race than ever before. Yet the months after were dominated by an even bigger story, as Tour legend and seven-time winner Lance Armstrong was stripped of his titles and confessed on Oprah to doping in each of his victories. Suddenly, everything that we thought we knew had happened was no longer true. In this new and comprehensively revised edition of the book, Wheatcroft not only brings his story of the Tour fully up to date to mark the race's 100th running in 2013, he also reflects on the changes brought about by the scandals that have rocked the sport to its core. Yet for all the controversies of modern times, he vividly captures the essential glory and romance of the heroes who battle to conquer one of sport's greatest challenges.
