I’m a big Sharon Montrose fan, and immediately ordered her book, Menagerie, when I received the email about it a little while ago. The best part – a hardcover copy is around $11!
I can’t wait until October!!! College Football season.. Husband’s Birthday… and oh ya – Jan Showers’ book, Glamorous Rooms hits bookstores! I have never been shy about my love for her work…there is no hollywood glamour kitsch here people- it’s classic, elegant, and BEAUTIFUL.
Here are a few images that were new to me that I found via her blog.
How gorgeous is this Dining Room?!?! I love the grey/gold color scheme. I bet this is even prettier in person.
Her space in the David Sutherland Showroom in LA. I see lots of “latte” cowhide rugs!
Showroom in Dallas. I’ve always liked the way she treated large blank walls over a sofa. Often time it’s HUGE mirror with prints on either side. I think the symmetry really polishes off the room.
I recently attended a book signing in conjunction with the Design Excellence Awards by Paper City Magazine (a must read for those living in Dallas or Houston) and we picked up a signed copy of “Domestic Art: Curated Interiors” for the office. Browsing through it today (it’s a fabulous book) this entry by Jan Showers caught my eye. I’ve always loved the contrast (and that the art would be SO easy to replicate) but I had never seen the rest of the house belonging to Kimberly and Justin Whitman.
Sorry for the poorly scanned image, but this living room is TO-DIE-FOR. Perfectly “curated,” it of course has Jan Showers’ signature glamour factor without any of the Hollywood Glamour cheese.
