Book review and a giveaway- Tom Scheerer Decorates!


Happy Labor Day, my lovelies! Recently, I was sent an advanced copy of Tom Scheerer's first book, Tom Scheerer Decorates, authored by Mimi Read and boy, what a visual treat!


The gorgeous cover truly piqued my interest and captivates my heart even before I start turning the pages. 


When I removed the dust jacket, a pleasant surprise awaits me. Just take a look at that stunning caned cover!

Here is a sneak peek of the gorgeous images you will find inside the book.

I love this big and beautiful coffee table book! A master of mixing colors and patterns, his designs always conjures an old-world charm with a sense of modern sensibility, relaxed sophistication and a fresh twist. And most importantly, his designs always captivate, excite and inspire! I am thrilled to add this fabulous book to my collection and I know you will, too!

  13. I'm in LOVE with the white kitchen. The gold and white tile is amazing and it feels so much more like a room without wall cabinets.

  14. I am of course a follower and I would LOVE to win this book because of that insanely gorgeous cover!! I wouldn't even care if all the pages inside were blank; that cover is fabulous! But of course I want it too for all the eye candy inside, and all the decorating ideas I'd get from it- the images you showed are gorgeous. Fingers are crossed!

  15. I'm really torn over my favorite room but I think it's the bedroom (#16). I love the way it's styled, the headboard/canopy of the bed, the soft restful colors...it's so pretty! I'm really drawn to the office space in #15 though too- I love the wood walls and the unique shelves.
