Textbook Tuesday | Tom Scheerer - More Decorating

When I ponder the start of autumn the first things I think of are school, a fresh start, fall fashion, and beautiful new book releases. I am so excited about this seasons line up of amazing new coffee table books, and I plan to give you several reviews over the coming weeks. Vendome Press is always a leader in the design genre, and this fall is no different; let's kick start the season with Tom Scheerer: More Decorating (photography by Francesco Lagnese).

I am a huge fan of the widely-published Scheerer and his impeccable design work. I was so drawn to the cover above, and even more excited when I pulled the dust jacket off and realized it's just as pretty underneath - it's hard to capture in a photo but the cane cover is actually textured and so divine in person!

In Scheerer's second book, he showcases 16 of his latest projects which are divided into three chapters. 'Town' features projects in Paris, New York, and Houston; 'Summer' is all about the Hamptons, Nantucket and Maine; finally 'The Tropics' sends the reader through Harbour Island, Antigua, and Abaco. I thought I'd be able to pick a favorite space or even favorite chapter but it's quite near impossible:

This chic Paris bedroom with a handsome pair of Louis XVI-style commodes and moss green velvet is simply sumptuous and really caught my eye:

Tom's expert use of color is so restrained but so impactful. Somehow against logic, he creates spaces that are simultaneously neutral and serene, yet colorful and energizing:

Probably my favorite use of orange I have ever seen, look at the base of those stairs!

Tom Scheerer: More Decorating is required reading for any self-proclaimed design enthusiast and all professionals in the field. He has mastered the ability to create serene and layered spaces that exude effortless beauty. Put this one on your list for the gorgeous statement it will make on your coffee table, and the endless inspiration it contains within its pages!
