Not only is it always fun to come back to their pages with a fresh eye for new inspiration, but they also look amazing pretty much anywhere.
But few recent design books have caught our eye as quickly as Tom Scheerer Decorates, written by Mimi Read, and featuring the designs of an artist whose work he humbly calls “cheerful” and “no nonsense.”
Call it what you may, Tom Scheerer’s eye for proportion and scale is undeniably masterful.
He creates rooms that are timeless and feel finished but uncluttered — a look we are craving right now.
Mimi Read’s decadent prose make Scheerer’s looks even livelier. We couldn’t help but read it cover to cover!
One of the things that captivated us about this book is that, while Scheerer definitely puts his stamp on all his work and similar themes run throughout, he never falls into that trap of doing the same thing over and over and over.
It seems that he truly designs the space with the family in mind. (Imagine!)
Just a hint of British colonial style is so chic. And these shelves made us do a double take. The hanging units are so unique! Not to mention the view…
The rich, vibrant color palettes that Scheerer uses in his work are one of the things that makes his book so visually appealing. It’s so much fun!
Kitchens that are updated but timeless seem almost impossible to create these days, but we think Scheerer gets it just right. This kitchen is warm, bright and clean but we don’t feel like we’re already sick of its elements by the time they’re installed!
So, let’s just say you don’t care a bit about this designer’s gorgeous taste and don’t appreciate Mimi Read’s enticing prose one bit. Even if all you’re looking for is a book that looks good in your room, this is still the one. A gorgeous front cover pulls away to reveal a fabulous, neutral cane pattern creating a book that is as chic on the outside as on the inside.
All-in-all, Tom Scheerer Decorates is one for the shelves — and the coffee table — that we know we’ll keep pulling out for years to come. It’s available for pre-order on Amazon. We’d snatch it up if we were you: It’s already ranked #1 in interior design books!
Thanks for stopping by today. We hope the short week is fantastic!
