The Welcoming House: The Art of Living Graciously

The Welcoming House, by Jane Schwab and Cindy Smith of Circa Interiors out of Charlotte, NC is my new favorite interior design book!

My aunt actually had the book signed by Jane and Cindy and she made their blog page waiting in line!

Another dear friend of mine actually attended the party celebrating the book launch at Jane’s house and she said the whole thing was breathtaking and that she will never attend a party so special. Over the next few days I enjoyed reading and looking at the gorgeous rooms; every page is inspiring. The book is perfectly titled, The Welcoming Home, each room is so inviting and from a friend who has visited many of these homes the pictures while beautiful only begin to show how welcoming these rooms are in person. I look forward to studying each page and rereading this book over and over again. These are two truly talented Southern interior designers. Mother’s Day is right around the corner and this book would make the perfect gift!

Check out just a few pages from the book

Be sure to read the forward by Bunny Williams, another talented Southern (from Virginia) designer! And…if you are in Charlotte or Birmingham, my hometown, make sure to visit their shops!
