    A gorgeous must-have!

    Anyone who loves design will enjoy this beautiful book. The photos are incredible (the color quality is superb). Jan Shower's text is also accessible and informative. I'm giving this as a Christmas gift to all the glamour girls on my list!

    Gift Scores!

    "Glamorous Rooms" was a gift for my sister. Her homes are beautifully decorated and very homey yet stately. She was thrilled with the book.
