My newest design book arrived in the mail Saturday, and it's amazing. I'm such a fan of Phoebe Howard and knew I'd love her new book, The Joy of Decorating. It's 50.00, but Amazon sells it for 31.00, and if you don't mind waiting for 7 to 9 days, you can have it shipped free. Her work is perfection, and I'm spending way too much time ogling the many gorgeous pages. I'm sharing just a few of the blue and white rooms, but she's worked her magic with many other beautiful hues as well. The beautiful rooms below are from the February/March 2012 issue of Tradition Home. Those giant dragon ginger jars are unbelievable. I want some. Does anyone recognize this fabric? I know I used to know what it is, but can't remember. This photo below is Charles Faudree and is from the Pinterest board Blue and White by Mary Rose.
