For more than four decades, Carolyne Roehm has been a part of American design culture with an illustrious career spanning the world of fashion, decorative arts, gardening, entertaining, and publishing. Now for the first time, she shares lessons from her life in style – from her small town Missouri childhood to her New York fashion career that began with Oscar de la Renta – in her thirteenth book Design & Style: A Constant Thread. Roehm tells the story of launching, running, and ultimately, closing her own fashion line, and her subsequent reinvention through books, gardening, entertaining, and décor. Through it all, she shows how the constant threads of character and creativity – along with a passion for nature, color, quality, and classicism – have informed her work and style.
Sharing both iconic and never-before-seen photographs, Roehm reveals her creative process through images of her interiors, floral design, and tabletops juxtaposed with stunning photos of herself, her homes, and her clothing to reveal the true source of inspiration behind her style and fashion aesthetic. Design & Style interweaves memoir and universal lifestyle lessons resulting in a truly inspirational book.
Released this month, Design & Style: A Constant Thread, is available via Amazon. Roehm is the author of thirteen books, including Flowers and At Home with Carolyne Roehm, which have cemented her position as one of America’s leading lifestyle experts. She divides time among her homes in Manhattan, Connecticut, and Charleston. To tour her Connecticut home, click here, and for Roehm’s Thanksgiving inspiration, click here.
