…that the winner (via random.org) of the give away of Glamorous Rooms by Jan Showers is…..
the very glamorous Zhush. For those of you who know Sue – she’s a magnet for all that glitters and is stylish! And, the girl has been on a roll in regards to give aways! So, I guess the lucky streak continues, Sue! Did you get your lotto ticket this weekend?
For those who don’t know what the Zhush is all about, check her out here! I promise, she’ll add some zest to your day!
And, as I wrap up my posts on the much admired Jan Showers, I’ll share the answer to one more question I had for her:
Pretty Pink Tulips:
The white cowhide is one of your signatures. How did you come to use it?
I was in Santa Fe in August — we used to go there every summer, for many years — the house we leased was wonderful, but dark. I went over to the market at the Santa Fe Opera grounds and found a man who was selling them. I bought one (or two) for every room and completely lightened up the entire house — along with white linens which I bought at a cute shop downtown. Of course, I shipped them home and have used them ever since. (This happened in the mid nineties). They have become a trademark of mine (we sell them through the Jan Showers Collection) and I will admit I am addicted to their magic. Not only that, they are incredibly durable and practical.
I am fortunate to have been to Santa Fe a number of times and the market Jan refers to. In fact, I have a beautiful carved angel from there that hangs above my bed. Always reminding me of the special times spent there with my friends. I think I see a Santa Fe post in my future!
What have your found to add some zest or light to your home?
A fellow Dallasite, I have been a long time admirer of Jan Showers. I have tear sheets dating back years from Elle Decor, Southern Accents and any number of other shelter magazines. So, it was with great delight that I learned she was compiling some of her best work into a book, Glamorous Rooms.
In fact, I was so excited, that I asked my husband if we could spend part of our anniversary attending her book signing at Bergdorf Goodman’s last fall. The man is a saint…..he said YES! So, that’s how I got my signed copy of Jan’s beautiful book!
