About the book
 
The follow-up to the bestselling Glamorous Rooms, Glamorous Retreats takes readers inside Jan Showers’s luxurious interiors in vacation locales across North America and the Caribbean, from the mountains of Colorado, to the beaches of Florida and the Bahamas, to the ranches of Arizona and Texas. With more than 200 never-before-seen photographs, this book showcases the renowned designer’s elegant eclecticism, which blends Hollywood high style, mid-century modernism, and classic 18th-century French styles, here set against the backdrop of stunning resort destinations. Mixing aspects of the local flavors and lifestyles into her own designs, Showers provides accessible and useful design tenets that will inspire readers to create their own luxurious yet relaxed homes.


Praise for Glamorous Retreats:

“If you’re looking for interiors with a certain movie star panache, Jan Showers has them in spades. The Texas interior designer’s sleek, boldly colored rooms hark back to 20th-century style sensations, from Hollywood of the 1930s to jet-set villas of the 1960s. A dozen of her choice commissions are on display in Glamorous Retreats (Abrams, $50), a new book packed with zebra-stripe upholstery, Venetian-glass accents, and acres of antiqued mirror . . . In short, Showers’s martini-ready aesthetic makes every home a cocktail party waiting to happen"—Architectural Digest

“A tour through far-flung pied-á-terres and gorgeous escapes.”—Veranda

“Designing spaces where you can kick up your heels, enjoy art, nature, books, or entertaining, the author’s retreats convey a warm and cozy vibe yet still manage to exude the glamour for which she is known.” —Traditional Home
