The beloved design maven peppers her first book “with tips for achieving a romantic, delicate look without being twee or overly saccharine” (Veranda). 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. “A handsome new book . . . Howard, FYI, is one Phoebe Howard in real life, a self-made decorator known for elegantly traditional, genteel Southern rooms.” —The Dallas Morning News “Guaranteed to inspire your own imagination.” —Atlanta “It never disappoints! Every room, project and vignette featured are beautiful but there are a few images that are simply perfect in my book—timeless and cozy, layered, inviting and lived-in.” —Café Design “Known for her fresh take on traditional style, Phoebe’s work can only be characterized by its timelessness and her mantra to ‘keep it pretty.’ Her work is encapsulated in her first book.” —Women’s Business Daily

Product coverage is extensive. Experts offer advice for homeowners and designers on finishing, decorating, and furnishing period homes of every era. A garden feature, essays, archival material, events and exhibitions, and book reviews round out the editorial. Many readers claim the beautiful advertising—all of it design-related, no “lifestyle” ads—is as important to them as the articles.
