In Memoriam

 

I know everyone is busy with Christmas and family, but this slipped by me somehow and I just couldn’t not pay a proper respect to Mr. Charles Faudree.  The famed interior designer from Tulsa, Oklahoma passed away from a long bout with cancer this past November 28.  He was just 75 years old.

Charles Faudree – always dapper, and always surrounded by his Cavalier, King Charles Spaniels

 

The former mayor of Tulsa, Kathy Taylor – also a client -  said of Faudree, his eyes were full of deep kindness and he always had a smile on his face.   "When you were with Charles, you always thought you were the only person in his life at that moment," Taylor said, "he would put himself and his incredible talent aside and really focused on making you feel like a great friend and a great person."

Charles Faudree started out teaching art and selling furniture in Dallas, Texas.  His career in interior design came about when he designed his sister Francie’s house in Tulsa – he was 38 years old at the time.  For many – it was his long relationship with Traditional Home magazine that brought him national acclaim.

Faudree was known for this Country French aesthetic.  Over the years he stayed true to his love of French antiques, furniture, and accessories.   His designs were layered, the more the better, and featured the finest of Provencal.  

 

image

He wrote six books – his first “Charles Faudree’s Country French Signature,” is now in its 9th printing and has sold over 60,000 copies.  Amazing.  All of his books are filled with houses he has designed through the years and his own numerous homes.   When he sprang on the scene, Faudree’s look was pure Country French – with blue, red, and yellow fabrics in toiles and checks.

In the 2000s – Faudree started adding Swedish pieces to his French – and his designs took on a much a lighter look than his previous aesthetic.   This shift showed that Faudree changed with the times and made his look relevant to younger clients.

Faudree was a known philanthropist.  Just this past March, he was the guest of honor at Tulsa CARES’ 15th annual Red Ribbon Gala, of which he was a founding member.   He was also known for his love of Cavaliers, King Charles Spaniels.   His dogs graced  many of his book covers.

His survivors included his partner, Bill Carpenter, and his sister, Francie Faudree Gillman.

 

image

This house by Charles Faudree was his own and it was the one that Traditional Homes featured which made him a national star.  The living room was double sized with a table in the middle and two matching fireplaces on each side.  Notice the beautiful French chests flanking the archway.  Faudree filled his houses with these types of Provencal antiques.  I was obsessed with this house and thought the floor plan was fabulous.  I studied every corner and every accessory.  He became my favorite designer overnight.   

Faudree moved shortly after this house was published.  I remember thinking – why?  It was such a perfect house!  Little did I know that he moved all the time – and indeed  he lived in countless houses during his lifetime!   Some furniture went with him from house to house, while others he left behind.

One side of his living room with the beautiful French mantel.

 

 

image

The dining room was actually on a back hall alcove.  A French sofa was used instead of chairs on one side.  Above is a tole chandelier.

 

 

 

image

Faudree was known for his kitchens – which he often wallpapered and dressed up with accessories as he would any other room.

 

 

image

He loved symmetry and blue and white plates.  Here – his collection of blue and white porcelains hang surrounded by an antique French barometer.

 

 

image

Checks were a favorite – in red and white and blue and white.  He used the same fabrics over and over again, Pierre Frey and Bennison were favorites. 

 

 

image

Faudree at his best – blue and white checks with this favorite fabric Petit Parc by Pierre Frey in blue.

 

 

image

This house designed by Faudree was another double living room with fireplaces on each end.  Here the dining room table was on one side while the living area was on the other.   Louis XV and XVI styled chairs were used with Provencal tables and upholstered sofas.  Stripes and checks were used, along with muted floral patterned fabrics.

Another view of the same house.

The family room in the same house – next to the kitchen.

The bedroom features a four poster bed in Chelsea Edition fabrics.  Beautiful fireplace and desk with clock.  Notice how all the rooms blend together in one cohesive design.

Another view of the same bedroom.

A fancy French bathroom for the more casual bedroom seen above.   The bathroom is dressier than the bedroom!  This  house was shown in a large spread in Veranda.

 

 

image 

I love this house that Faudree designed in the Caribbean which was also featured in Veranda.  He used a large Suzani fabric and bold stripes, which was a departure for Faudree.  He loved to use sample sized chairs in his rooms – like this charming one in a blue and white ikat.

 

 

image

A view of the other side of the living room with more blue and white fabrics and black hardwood floors.

 

 

image

The dining room is a stunning collection of shells and antique books – with gleaming black hardwoods and mirrored chests.

 

 

 

image

The bedroom featured reproduction antiques.  At Faudree’s shop in Tulsa, he sold beautiful chair frames which would be either stained or painted and then upholstered.   I used to drool over pictures of his chair frames and dream about clients who would let me purchase them!

 

 

image

This living room made the cover of one of his books.  It signaled a shift in his aesthetic at the time  - white walls?   And it showcased new fabrics that quickly became favorites such as the damask and the cut velvet pillow fabric.

 

 

image

These two chairs are made from frames sold in Faudree’s shop.  Love these!

 

 

image

A French bedroom – done by the best.

 

 

image

This was a bedroom Faudree did for a young couple in Houston!  He used a favorite toile stripe on the walls.

 

 

image

And he filled the bedroom with painted antiques.

 

 

image

And more painted chests and tufted chairs.

 

 

image

This was another house Faudree lived in for a while.   It featured a beautiful French mantel and tall bergeres in a taupe damask.  These two chairs showed up in house after house.  Faudree also used this chair a lot for clients.

 

 

image

Looking at the side of the same living room, here is a painted chest and the surprise of a glass coffee table!

 

 

 

image

And a view towards the dining room.  Another surprise – upholstered slipper chairs.  Faudree loved antique French barometers and used them to anchor wall displays.

 

 

 

image

The same dining room with printed fabric curtains.  Love the tole clock.

 

 

  image

In this entrée in a Faudree house – an enfilade is the focal point.  This painted piece was owned by Faudree and then he sold it to a client who later sold it back to Faudree. 

 

 

image

This Faudree house is another favorite.  His sister Francie bought him the sample sized chair in front of the painted coffee table – which is from Faudree’s furniture line.  Notice the tole clock from the previous dining room.  These sconces moved from house to house with Faudree.  The fabric seen throughout this room is Florentine Damask by Beaumont and Fletcher.

 

 

image 

The two chairs flanking the fireplace were used in the previous living room.   Faudree said this drapery treatment was one of his favorite.

 

image 

In yet another Faudree house, this living room featured the wing chairs in Petit Parc and a large check in blue and white.  These sconces were seen in house after house.   Faudree loved tole chandeliers and used them in many projects.

 

 

image

In another room of Faudree’s – here is yet another tole chandelier.   As in the picture above – he liked to use gate leg tables in front of sofas.

 

 

image

One of the Faudree’s last residences- featured a French day bed that sat in front of the fireplace.

 

 

image

The familiar sconces appear here as do the familiar bergeres in the damask.  A stunning collection of tortoise shell boxes sit atop the tea table.

 

image

The view in the opposite direction.  This house shows a mature Faudree with a more eclectic approach to design. 

 

image

Close up of the antique mirror and painted chest. 

 

 

 

image

Besides his many houses, Faudree had numerous vacation homes he all named The Roost.  There were many Roosts – not just one.  After many years in Oklahoma, he finally ended up with a Roost in the Cashiers.   Here, a published Roost – in bleached woods and blue and white checks and Petit Parc fabric on the walls.  The portrait over the fireplace moved from house to house.

 

 

image

In the past decade, Faudree had begun to add Swedish influences into his designs.   This Roost was a favorite of mine!  Love it!

 

 

image

His favorite Petite Parc print on two wing chairs.

 

 

image

Here he added a French day bed in ticking.

 

 

image

I loved this version of the Roost – with the huge tapestry and blue and white checks mixed with white painted furniture.

 

 

image

Another Roost with the same antique coffee table and the French sofa and chairs from Faudree’s line.  The portrait of the girl hangs to the left of the sofa.

 

image

Close of the painted chest and the small portrait which Faudree said he loved.

 

image

And another Roost dining room – with toile curtains and a painted enfilade.

 

 

image

This Swedish secretary was used in several Roost houses. 

 

 

image

And here it is again used in a different Roost – a study in symmetry.

 

 

 

image

This Roost bedroom was a study in black and white.  These two chairs are from his furniture line.

 

 

image

Another Roost bedroom with his collection of dog prints.

 

image

And on the other side of the bedroom with another beautiful oil.

 

image

A laundry room was taken out to make a small bedroom.  Faudree said he didn’t know how to do the laundry – so why would he need a laundry room?  Love the needlepoint pillow announcing The Roost!

 

 

image

I love Faudree’s vignettes – the chests and chairs in the corners with mirrors and lamps and tablescapes.

 

image

Here he used a French baker’s table for a makeshift bar.

 

image

A painted chest, a mirror and plates – Faudree could do this arrangement blindfolded.

 

image

He always seemed to find the perfect painted piece, the perfect mirror and the perfect accessory.

 

 

 

image

Faudree was known for his bathrooms and closets.  Always, symmetry prevails.  I love that huge perfume bottle!

 

image 

Another bathroom – showcases his love of Napoleon, toile and painted Provencal furniture. 

 

image

A newer version of his powder room – with a contemporary wallpaper and painted console.

 

 image

Have an extra antique barometer?  Hang it over the toilet!  Faudree would and did!

  1. A lovely tribute to Charles Faudree who spawned a look we all adored and tried to emulate. Now looking back at some of the photos, I am reminded of how my own taste has changed. While still loving all things French, the lighter, cleaner and less over worked look is my favorite. Judging from some of the pictures, one could edit these rooms and fill other spaces beautifully with the take aways.

  2. Joni:
    Thanks for this remembrance. Charles hosted a book signing for us a few years ago and he was a lovely host. I felt like I had known him all my life. He also had a wicked sense of humor.

    1. Charles hosted a few book signings for my family at their store, The French Hen, several years ago. He was a prince. And he did, indeed, make you feel special. I'll never forget going to a dinner with him--where he told one hysterically funny story after another--we all laughed until we were in physical pain! He was kind, courteous, warm, friendly and his sense of style was unparalleled, from his attire to his interiors--and most certainly included his precious dogs. Farewell, Charles. The pleasure was most certainly ours. ~Amanda

    2. Could you share some of the "hysterically funny stories". We they at the expense of clients, himself, his dogs - certainly you can remember a few.

  3. Amazing how fresh, always fresh, his work remained.

    And why are there so many elements he created that scream, Copy me !!

    His books are always on tables in my house & always borrowed.

    He's gone, but his rooms will continue to delight & inform.

  4. Thank you so much, Joni. From the time I first began looking at shelter magazines and started to dream about what I would like the home I hoped to have one day would look like, it was Charles Faudree's beautiful designs that inspired me. Such a loss for all of us who care about the comfort of our homes and love of interior decorating.

  6. Joni, I met Charles Faudree several years ago and had the opportunity to chat with him for a while. He talked about his Cavaliers and how he couldn't wait to get home to them and his love of antiques. He was so kind and made me feel like we were good friends just sitting around chatting. I am so sad about his passing and the design world has lost a star.

  7. Charles Faudree was and always will be a classic in my eyes! I l worked under a designer who truly admired him and it was evident in her work, andI also learned so much from that classic traditional style! Here to one of the great ones!

  8. Thank you for sharing this lovely tribute/post Joni. I have a new appreciation for French design in decor. Charles Faudree will live on in your designs I am sure! I must comment on the Caribbean home... FABULOUS! I can't get over the chandy in the dining room with the huge shells... lovely... and the gleaming black floors... stunning!

  10. I had the wonderful experience of running into Mr. Faudree while antiquing one day in Tulsa. He purchased something I was contemplating right out from under me! It was quite startling, but very funny. He said, "Well, now you can buy it from me!" ... with a warm hug. I learned to always pick up the item I am thinking about after that! :) I absolutely adore Mr. Faudree. I even named my son Charles. He is my go-to designer. I have poured over each and every book he has authored. His design will forever be "Timeless Faudree." He will be missed. Thank you for a lovely tribute blog. xo, Emily

  11. Joni--thank you for the gift of this post. I'm one of the thousands who always loved seeing a Faudree room in one of his books or a magazine. This was a delightful retrospective. Happy holidays!

  12. Thank you for posting this memorial with so many beautiful photos. I had no idea Charles Faudree had passed away. He has always been one of my favorite decorators and his style has influenced the way I decorate my own home. I knew anybody that loved CKCS and let them on the furniture had to be a good person in my book! He will be missed by many. Sheila

  13. Your post is a testament to Charles Faudree's incomparable style. I was fortunate to have met him at a Pierre Deux event in Westport, CT a few years ago, and he had the kindest eyes and a genuine smile. I am so sad to hear of his passing but he will continue to be a design legend - certainly one of my favorite designers. Thanks so much for sharing Joni... Ursula

  14. Such a sad report - but beautiful homage paid Joni. He will always be one of my favorites, and I think he really shaped a generation of decorators ... thankfully we have his work preserved in books!

  16. A detailed and fitting tribute, it's lovely to hear the comments from readers who actually met him. I can see some influences on current designers, the bull's head in the kitchen I think has recently also been done by my favourite Pamela Pierce. I especially like his blue rooms and bedrooms and use of painted furniture way before it became popular in the last 10 years or so. How lucky he was to live a life where he could do what he loved i.e. decorate a house and then move on and start on the next house.

  21. Our son's mother in law (a dear person herself) was one of Mr. Faudree's art students years ago before he began his decorating career. At that time, he was teaching in Oklahoma City. One Christmas she and I gave each other the same Faudree book--only the one she gave to me was autographed by him.

    I have visited his shop in Tulsa. It is a lovely shop and I was surprised to see that it included all kinds of things for sale--both expensive and surprisingly reasonable in price. Everything in the shop was charming.

    I will miss him too.

  24. I love this post! I used to take my magazine with the latest Faudree house and compare it to older magazines that showed a past house - trying to find the accessories and the furniture used in both homes. He was so talented......we will all miss him

  25. Oh Joni-It was because of my love for Charles Faudre that I discovered your blog 4 (or more) years ago! I Googled Faudree and french design and found a post of yours. Such a fabulous and talented designer. I have all of his books. I especially loved that he included client's pets in photos of his design work.

    Thank you...thank you dearly for the detailed and heartfelt tribute.

  26. Oh, Joni, I remember touring the first house you showed above. It was when stained concrete was first being done, and done well I might add, which is not so much the case anymore. I specifically remember him telling a lady he could take up the rugs and hose it off if he wanted! They were amazed!! I've had the pleasure to tour a few more of his homes and one was always better than the next with many of the same things used again and again. They were always wonderful, just as he was. We will miss his wonderful rooms in the pages of our magazines but do have the wonderful books to help us remember.

"When you were with Charles, you always thought you were the only person in his life at that moment," Taylor said, "he would put himself and his incredible talent aside and really focused on making you feel like a great friend and a great person." At our house and businesses, those are words we would like said about us! It is our mantra to make everyone feel as though they were the only one! It is so nice to hear them about Mr. Faudre. I'm so glad you included all of those pictures because, without knowing him or his name, I've been a fan of his work for years. I have those images in my "dream book" and I even own a few of his books. My style has changed to white linens, seagrass, and neutrals but his style is eternally wonderful, just like him! Great post! e

  37. I was so shocked and saddened to read that Charles Faudree passed away!! I have three of his design books- and though I could never approximate his wonderful style in my house, I feel that by studying his designs, that he has left me with an eye that appreciates the color and fullness and sheer love of life of his rooms, and I try to emulate that feeling. In one of his books, I noticed a beautiful red velvet checked fabric used on kitchen chairs in his own house, which I found out later was Clarence House Carre Royal When I saw that velvet check on eBay- I had to buy it- and it became the dominant pattern, besides the toile curtains, in my own living room and dining room. I knew that if Charles loved it- I couldn’t go wrong!
    Thank you, Joni, for this heartfelt tribute to a great designer, and, clearly, a lovely human being.

  39. What a tremendous lost! Many years ago at a book signing, I had the pleasure of meeting the legendary Charles Faudree. We chatted briefly about antiques. I complimented him on his signature layered look and master handling of multiple seating groups. He was very gracious! Thanks for this beautiful tribute.
    Happy 2014 ahead!

  40. Joni the things Kathy Taylor said about Mr. Faudree are so true. I was shopping at TA Lorton (Tulsa) this summer and he happened to be in the store at the same time. Even though the store is mostly home furnishings and accent pieces they had a display of beautiful tunics which I was browsing. Guess who picked out the perfect tunic for me....Mr. Faudree. Such a sweet spirited man!

  42. Charles Faudree proved that "color" never goes out of style. Loved the way he took a single color and repeated it in variations over and over in the same room. Also loved the way he dressed every lampshade. Each one is a work of art in itself. Very sorry to learn of his passing but even more sad to hear that he was ill for a long time.

    A great loss to all of us who love fine residential design. He took the stuffiness out of French design and made it fun!

  43. It was my privilege to have met Mr. Faudree at his design shop during a trip to Tulsa several years ago. He greeted me as though I was an old friend. I was most impressed with how down-to-earth and warm he was. His passion for design and zest for life was certainly evident in all he did and an inspiration to all of us, especially those of us who love French Country design. I was very saddened to learn of his death. I feel like I've lost a close friend even though I met him just that once. He will be remembered for all the beautiful interiors he designed, but most of all for the many lives he touched with his big heart and good deeds.

  44. Don't be afraid! Mr. Faudree's work is a testiment how color, pattern and texture ARE NOT jarring in contrast to those who profess the superior zen calmness of beige, greige, white, tone and tone. I can't imagine a more conforting and relaxed atmosphere to live in than what is featured here.....and Mr. Faudree created it masterfully.

    I long ago bookmarked your July, 2008 entry on Mr. Faudree, Joni, who you proclaimed as #5 as your Top Ten Designers. Thanks so much for the new photos and your tribute here.

  46. Joni, I am so saddened to learn of his passing, I am unable to put it into words. His inimitable eye was like no other. An amazing talent. While I did not know him personally, I poured over his design books and marveled over and over at the beauty of the rooms he created. What a loss to the design world! Definitely a red letter day in heaven when he entered the kingdom! He always brought a bit of heaven to us here on earth as we enjoyed the results of his work. Thank you for this adoring tribute....he deserved every word of it and then some. May God bless his surviving partner and his sister. We will not see his like again. RIP, dear Charles.

  47. What a wonderful tribute to an inspirational designer! Thanks Joni. I loved his work and used many of his design elements in decorating my own home. Sincere condolences to his partner and to Faudree's sister. A true loss to the designer community.

  48. I loved reading all your comments. We forget - in these times of instant decorating - how wonderful the classical designers really are. They don't have to change every interior, every job - they have an aesthetic and keep it - just tweaking it a bit here and there - instead of always having to be different. He was such an icon and such an idol of mine. He seemed like such a sweet man too. God speed.

  50. Joni,
    You paid a great tribute to Mr. Faudree. From the first time I saw a published room of his, I was obsessed. I had the great privelege to meet him and hear him speak. He even signed 2 books for me, I treasure them. It was so interesting to me that he had owned so many homes. I hope you write more about him in the future.
