Y'all know that the Southern Living magazine is a staple on my coffee table. Each month I enjoy the time that I'm able to sit down, enjoy a glass of iced tea or a cup of hot tea and go through the magazine, drooling over everything inside...all of it Southern Style!
In the November issue I was excited to see that Southern Living has added a new column with Phoebe Howard, interior designer and Southern style expert..."Dear Mrs. Howard...'Solves Life's Little Decorating Emergencies'. The column will address life's little "decorating emergencies," says Howard, who will deliver practical advice and inspiration to commonly asked questions. Mrs. Howard is recognized as one of the foremost authorities on Southern style and if you visit here website here, you will see why! She also a blog which is a must-read...oh my goodness, it's full of beautiful photos y'all!
In the debut column, Howard tackles the common issue of how to arrange a coffee table by offering a simple, four-step formula. She shows how using key elements: something tall, one oddball object, something fresh and a stack of books can transform the look of any tabletop or space.
