Friendly Excitement

Right now, I’m busting with excitement for two of our very close friends.  As I type this post, they are meeting with Mrs. Howard, about the design and decor of their dream house! I adore the work of Phoebe Howard, and love following the careers of both Mr. and Mrs. Howard in all the shelter magazines.  One day, I’ll be able to visit my good friends in their own “Howard” creation, which will undoubtedly be just as beautiful as these examples from Phoebe Howard’s portfolio…

  13. That is very exciting! Not only because they are consulting the Howards, but also for the fact that you get to follow the entire process from start to finish. How fun!

    I know what you mean! I could move into the house she designed in East Hampton. That house has some of my favorite rooms of ALL TIME. When you compare Mrs. Howard to Miles Redd, in my mind there is no contest. Ann
