Cowritten with well-known Southern writer Susan Sully, Phoebe Howard’s The Joy of Decorating is a gorgeous book epitomizing the grace and elegance of Southern interior design that’s “guaranteed to inspire your own imagination” (Atlanta magazine).
Phoebe Howard, known affectionately as Mrs. Howard to her clients, has a penchant for creating stylish spaces, which has evolved into her own critically acclaimed brand of interior design. Mrs. Howard’s first book features several of her largest design projects and addresses the most common decorating issues and questions her clients and customers ask.
The book’s design projects are organized by theme: Inviting, Inspiring, Timeless, Graceful, Tranquil, Casual, and Comfortable—all words that have been used to describe Mrs. Howard’s work and ones that illustrate the many different ways she strives to make her houses look and feel.
“Mrs. Howard, as she’s known to fans of her eponymous store, peppers the book with tips for achieving a romantic, delicate look without being twee or overly saccharine. It’s the perfect title for those looking to design rooms that are soft and practical.” —Veranda magazine
