When talented interior designer Tom Scheerer is not flying off to the sunny beaches of Maine, Nantucket, Florida or The Bahamas, he’s relaxing in the Hamptons at our mother’s club. She’s a huge fan of his, as are we – that’s why it was really exciting for us to meet him in person last week at the Antiquarius Holiday Boutique where he was signing copies of his new book, Tom Scheerer Decorates. Soft-spoken and elegant, he’s was exactly how we had imagined him!
With a style that he describes as “cheerful”, “no nonsense” and a touch “underbaked”, Tom’s interiors are as fresh and relaxing as the locations where his clients reside. His book is filled with beautiful rooms, each with its own comfortable character that is so laid back, it’s hard to call the space “decorated.” As David Netto (another member of mother’s club) wrote in The New York Times about Tom’s philosophy, “It’s about celebrating real life, and remembering that the chicest thing of all, when you can have whatever you want, is to be yourself.”
With snow falling for the third time in eight days here and Christmas just around the corner, we thought this signed book of lovely interiors (many of which are in warmer climes like the Lyford Cay Club!) would be the perfect giveaway – and a great last minute gift for yourself or someone else! All you need to do is leave a comment below or email us at email@example.com with “Tom Scheerer Decorates” in the subject line. You have until 11:59 pm on Sunday, December 22, 2013 to enter and we’ll announce the winner on Monday, the 23rd. We’ll even send the book by UPS Overnight so you can have in time for Christmas!
