I thought it’d be fun to showcase a few of my favorite designers. You already know of my love of Bunny Williams! Phoebe Howard, or Mrs. Howard as she’s known through her stores, is another Southern designer I love!
I first got her book, The Joy of Decorating, from the library. I hadn’t heard of her name before but had definitely seen her work.
She writes in Joy of Decorating that she isn’t a designer by trade. Her husband, Jim Howard, is an architect and that after she stayed home to raise her kids, she found her love of design. She has several brick-and-mortar stores and a decorating business that her kids have joined as well.
I love this photo of the draperies in the same tone as the wall color- I’m thinking about something like that for my bedroom. And she does a cornice board so well :).
Do you love Mrs. Howard, as well? Who is your favorite designer?
