On Oct. 1 interior designer and Turtle Creek resident Jan Showers will be releasing her second book, Glamorous Retreats. Inspired by her work in the interior design industry, this book is an ideal mate to her first book Glamorous Rooms.
In it, Showers shows off some of her favorite projects that she has completed since the printing of her first book.
"There were several projects I did that have never been published: second, third, and even sometimes fourth homes of clients," Showers told me during an interview in August for our Home & Design section. "More like vacation or retreat homes. There are twelve beautiful projects in the book from all over: Nantucket, Harbor Island, Palm Beach."
One of the featured retreats is Becky and Steve Meyer's home in Bachelor Gulch, Colorado. The University Park residents use their glamorous retreat as a ski home.
This book is heavy on the inspiration side, even if you aren't trying to furnish your second, third, or fourth home. It's the perfect way to take a look into your neighbor's vacation home — without having to be invited.
