I recently bought Mrs. Howard's book through her Jacksonville Beach store (which is my favorite store), and I absolutely LOVE it! Since I purchased it through the store, I got a signed copy and a great paint chart with all of Mrs. Howard's favorite colors... A must have for a person like me who can NEVER make a decision on a paint color. I'll put up 15 different options before I can commit! Even without the paint chart, the book is stunning and offers great advice. To anyone who is questioning whether or not to get this book, you will be missing out if you don't!

I own 20+ designer coffee table books, and this one is my favorite to date. Phoebe has such a beautiful style, and her rooms are so livable and inviting. The pictures are captivating, and I keep reading it over and over and finding new things in the photos. It is a must-read!

Phoebe Howard is an inspiration. Her designs are always so classic and timeless, but always fresh and exciting. The quality of these pictures is phenomenal. I've got this book on my coffee table and love showing it off to all my friends. Phoebe's style is so beautiful and elegant, yet attainable and inviting. Congrats to her on her first book!!

Phoebe Howard aka "Mrs. Howard" is a favorite decorator of mine so I had to purchase "The Joy of Decorating; Southern Style with Mrs. Howard." The book is inspiring in its beauty and simplicity -- it is unpretentious, just like her style. The book is arranged in chapters with numerous photographs which illustrate her style which she defines as: Inviting, Inspiring, Timeless, Graceful, Tranquil, Causal and Comfortable. I couldn't agree more. The gorgeous book starts out with an introduction that many of us can identify with -- she states that "when I reflect on how I happened upon [an interior decorating] career, I realize that I did not choose it. It choose me." Precisely. Mrs. Howard's style is a testament that some people are just born with an innate sense of beauty -- she is completely self taught and did not event work with another designer. Her book is beautiful and well worth the price. I have some pictures of her work at my website which you can see before buying the book: [...].

I love the rooms in this book. They are traditional (i.e., accessible) and so pretty without being over the top or unrealistic. You can actually imagine living in these homes, which I can't say is true of a lot of decorating books I see. Bottom line: If you're not a modernist, but want a Zen-like quality to your home, this is the designer to emulate.
