I recently procured a copy of Tom Scheerer Decorates. With well chosen words and lavish images, this substantial tome showcases Scheerer’s refreshingly restrained, “no nonsense” brand of chic. It’s an indispensable all-access look, displaying Scheerer’s genius for unique design solutions throughout.

Scheerer brings a distinctly American quality to his work — a lack of pretense, with clean colors and an elegant yet comfortable simplicity. Certainly there are hints of Billy Baldwin. There is some Hicks and Hadley there too—all of which resonates with me personally. He’s applied this approach to some of my favorite interiors—from his own beloved sweet rustic cottage on Harbor Island, to an elaborate and rather stately coral stone house in Florida. In fact, I’ve experienced several of Scheerer’s projects in person; particularly his work at the Lyford Cay Club never fails to make my heart skip a beat.

Lyford Cay Club

At a recent dinner at the Colony Club (given in Scheerer’s honor and to celebrate this new book), our mutual friend, the very elegant Amanda Lindroth – who was instrumental in bringing Scheerer to Lyford – toasted him, proclaiming that Scheerer’s work for the Lyford Cay Club raised the bar for all private clubs. We whole-heartedly agree!

Do pick up your copy of Tom Scheerer Decorates—it is sure to sooth and inspire — it already holds a special place in my own reference library. You can find your copy on Amazon here: Tom Scheerer Decorates

    My Darling Allison,

    Tom is so brilliant and his work at Lyford just beyond- the Lyford Cay Club drawing room is certainly one of the most iconic rooms of the 21st Century.
