Phoebe Howard, known affectionately as Mrs. Howard to her clients, has a penchant for creating stylish spaces, which has evolved into her own critically acclaimed brand of interior design. Mrs. Howard's first book features several of her largest design projects and addresses the most common decorating issues and questions her clients and customers ask. The book's design projects are organized by theme: Inviting, Inspiring, Timeless, Graceful, Tranquil, Casual, and Comfortable--all words that have been used to describe Mrs. Howard's work and ones that illustrate the many different ways she strives to make her houses look and feel.
Cowritten with well-known Southern writer Susan Sully, this gorgeous book epitomizes the grace and elegance of Southern interior design.
