For those itching to really switch things up, look no further than Jane Webster. The Melbourne entrepreneur and mother of four became the doyenne of a French chateau after buying and gutting the neglected 19th-century property on a whim. Ms. Webster’s latest book, “French House Chic” (Thames & Hudson, $45, 256 pp.), illuminates the sometimes-elusive appeal of French interiors by breaking them down room by room (the entrance, the bedroom, the kitchen) — and then even further into the elements that define those rooms (paneling, toile, bergère chairs).

In this, her second book, Jane offers us a glimpse into life as a local in a French village: keeping house, visiting the markets, restoring the walled kitchen garden, and indulging her passion for 'antiquing' at flea markets and antique fairs.
