Shauna Varvel began her career in public relations with Estee Lauder in New York, continuing with the brand to Tokyo. After many years of renting summer homes in Provence with her family, Shauna finally chose one to call their own, taking on the renovation of a 200-year-old farmhouse outside Avignon, France. The project has been celebrated by numerous publications, including Veranda, Town & Country and Fortune magazines, and visited by celebrities and an American president. Alexandra Black has written widely on cultural and material history. She is the author of Living in Cuba, Tuscan Elements, Ski Style, The Japanese House, Dusk Till Dawn, and The Fashion Book, and has contributed to Elle, Vogue Living and Gourmet Traveller.
"Provence Style: Decorating with French Country Flair includes intimate tours of chic homes and their interior details that are inspired by the picturesque region they reside in. It also includes chapters on the public spaces in Varvel's home. . . transporting the reader on a captivating stylistic journey."-- "Southern Home"
