New Traditional Interior Design by Courtney Giles

This weekend I caught up on reading some of my favorite shelter magazines. There was one house tour featured in Atlanta Homes and Lifestyle that caught my eye. Atlanta-based Interior Designer, Courtney Giles transformed the historic 1911 four bedroom house for a young couple. Sticking with a neutral palette for the most part, Giles’ design blends traditional elements with fresh , modern accents – it’s what I refer to as new traditional interior design. The result is inviting, elegant and current.

The chinoiserie wallpaper in the powder room is dramatic and bold, but a fun choice for this small space.

Tom Scheerer Decorates – The Book

It’s creating a huge buzz and there’s good reason for it. Tom Scheerer Decorates, due out in September is the long-waited and first book of interior designer, Tom Scheerer’s work. His classic and as he puts it, “no nonsene” approach to design, is reminiscent of design icons such as Albert Hadley, David Hicks and Billy Baldwin. From Manhattan apartments to Bahamian seaside cottages, the book showcases Scheerer’s exquisite, confident and always perfectly balanced creations. They all contain a seamless blend of classical design elements with crisp, modern touches. All are inviting, livable and feel natural. Scheerer makes decorating look effortless, which we all know is far from the truth.  Many of the images featured in the book have already caused a pinning frenzy and you’ll see why.

Tom Scheerer Decorates - the book

His sophistication is extreme, but it is accessible, relaxed, and a touch “under-baked,” as Scheerer says, because he thinks the smartest rooms are always a little underdecorated.” –  Mimi Read, author of Tom Scheerer Decorates
