Last month, I was the happy recipient of Phoebe Howard’s latest tome: The Joy of Decorating: Southern Style With Mrs. Howard. This book is right up my ally as I’m such a fan of Phoebe and Jim Howard’s work. I’ve mentioned before that two of our closest friends are building their dream home with the Howards, I can’t wait to see the results (which should be some time soon, maybe late fall). Phoebe Howard has a gift for creating rooms with classic southern style that all look completely fresh and livable. I found so much inspiration between the pages of this fabulous book!
