Some Light Reading

09
DECEMBER
2013

We’ve been doing a lot more reading lately here at SummerHouse! Because of all of the beautiful new books we have available at the store, our holiday reading lists (and wish lists!) have really grown!

Who doesn’t enjoy a little light reading about design and southern culture… especially when gorgeous photography is involved?! We think these books would make great gifts for others, or great additions to your own libraries!

A Little Light Reading // SummerHouse

Clockwise from top left:

Decorating in Detail by Alexa Hampton
In Decorating in Detail, Alexa shares the development process for eight elegant homes in locations from New York City to New Orleans. Walking readers through each room, she describes how she and the homeowners chose all of the elements, from textures to fabrics to furniture.

Glamorous Retreats by Jan Showers
Jan’s second book, Glamorous Retreats showcases the designer’s most luxurious interiors—beautiful vacation locales across North America and the Caribbean.
[description source]

Beauty at Home by Aerin Lauder
For the first time, Aerin shares memories of the family celebrations and world travel that formed her sense of style. Aerin opens the doors to her New York apartment, where on any given night she might host a relaxed dinner with firends under a vintage French chandelier or, just as often, an impromptu get-together for her sons.
[description source]

Timeless Style by Suzanne Kasler
Suzanne Kasler, best known for crafting beautifully sophisticated interiors with soft palettes, revisits some of her favorite projects, among them her own Federal-style home in Atlanta’s Buckhead neighborhood. Scattered throughout the text are useful tips, such as grouping similar objects to create more of a visual impact.

Thomas O’Brien’s newest book Aero celebrates 20 years of his famed Aero Design Studio as well as an intimate look at his design philosophy. From O’Brien’s vivid reminiscences about his early days in art school in Manhattan, to details of his personal residence and the development of his acclaimed studio and store, Aero covers the history and aesthetic of not only the Soho landmark but the man behind it.
