Designer Jan Showers Finds Glamour on Taigan
Dallas decorator and designer Jan Showers is no stranger to great designs. She knows the secret to great style: "glamour is always necessary in a room. I am in love with certain unusual materials and their applications--parchment, leathers, Venetian glass, and always, glorious mirrors."
Showers also knows a good thing when she sees it and found plenty of inspiration when browsing in the designer shops at Taigan. Pointing out Georgia Tapert Living, multi-colored silk Ikat pillows. "I'm crazy about the blues/yellows on white -- so crisp and fun for summer in my living room," said Showers.
Yet Showers' eye goes beyond home designs, "The Giselle Croc Bag - the color and quality are simply divine," she said about the Susan van der Linde collection.
Just in time for summer, Showers found the best napkins for entertaining: "Kim Seybert white linen napkins with green bamboo. These are great for summer entertaining, especially al fresco. And I love anything with a bamboo motif," she noted.
