Whenever a designer whose work has graced the pages of major shelter magazines issues a book, you always wonder - will I really be seeing anything I haven't seen before? When Vendome Press offered me the chance to review Tom Scheerer Decorates, I jumped at the chance to find out. Well the good news is, you will. Even with the homes that I recognized, there were different shots and new rooms that give you so much more than you've seen previously.
The book is divided into 3 major sections: City, Country and Tropics. Each is full of large, lush photos by Francesco Lagnese capturing all the elegant, livable chicness Scheerer is known for.
Mimi Read's narration gives you a real sense of Scheerer's approach and the reasoning behind his choices. And, isn't that what were looking for from a book like this - a glimpse into the creative process of such a talented designer?
I had mentioned Scheerer's upcoming book in a post back in July and am so happy now to have it in my collection. An added bonus, the under-the-cover of this book is fabulous. The caning design is even slightly textured! Tom Scheerer Decorates
