I had the pleasure of working with Phoebe Howard this past year on her book, Joy of Decorating: Southern Style with Mrs. Howard by Phoebe Howard (Stewart, Tabori & Chang, 2012). What I love most about Phoebe Howard (or Mrs. Howard as she prefers to be known) is not the way she does interior design, but the way she seized her dream of starting her own business after raising four children. Phoebe and her husband opened the first Mrs. Howard design store in Jacksonville, Florida and through clients at the store Phoebe quickly became one of the most sought after designers in the South. Her very first project was featured in a twelve-page spread in House Beautiful! So you can imagine I was so excited to edit this book and to work with someone whose work I had read so much about.
