Jan Showers is truly an inspiration. Her vision for not only designing a space, but her ability to put together truly unique items and colors is a gift. Her style is timeless, seemingly effortless with a touch of glamour that combines textures and a variety of periods. To me each space Jan creates has a feeling of personality and a space where one can actually live in style without having to worry about ruining anything. In her designs, it is clear that Jan has a sense of style that continues to evolve yet remains classic. It is no wonder that notable publications such as Elle Décor, Architectural Digest, House Beautiful, InStyle Home, Town & Country, and many others have not only featured her work but also have recognized her firm notably has one of the top design & architecture firms in the U.S.
I especially love her tablescapes, which bring fun and character to any room. I am inspired by her attention to detail and use of color. Each space is interesting in its own way and my eyes never seem to get bored. It makes total sense that in 2002, Jan started to make custom pieces that she had been designing for her clients.
For a great read and a beautiful coffee table book, be sure to pick up Jan’s books. The first one is titled “Glamorous Rooms”, which is now in its sixth printing and is a compilation of Jan’s work over the past 25 years. Her second book titled “Glamorous Retreats”, takes you into Jan’s most luxurious spaces across North American and the Caribbean. Both books are a must read that will leave you inspired!
