I LOVE this book! It has the most gorgeous pictures. It also has really great advice and ideas.
One of the homes featured in the book was also featured in this month's issue of Veranda Magazine.
The first photo is a split page of the magazine that I had to scan, so it's a little odd looking, but I just love the chairs and the adorable "Tide In, Tide Out" pillows. The classic chairs with the whimsical pillows are so charming! I also adore the pink bathroom. So classic and Old Hollywood and yet a little preppy at the same time.
Other books by Betty Lou Phillips that I own and love include French Influences and Secrets of French Design. I can't wait to collect the rest of her books as well. Everytime I get a new one I find a great idea that I can use in my own home. Unfortunately for me, that usually involves sewing! Someday I'll have the time...
