James Farmer is a favorite designer here at The Glam Pad, and the launch of his new book, Celebrating Home: A Time for Every Season, is cause for celebration indeed! A best-selling author of ten books, his latest pays tribute to the role of Home in creating memories, treasuring traditions, honoring previous generations, and rediscovering the joy our homes and gardens bring to our lives. In fact, James has dedicated his life to celebrating the meaning of home – the pleasantries of colors and materials, the feel of the doorknob warmed by the sun, the smell of fresh laundry, the sound of the closing door, and the taste of supper on the table.
Celebrating Home fuses all his creative passions in a celebration of the seasons. In stories and pictures, James takes the reader on a tour of his two homes and gardens, with tablesettings for celebratory occasions throughout the year. Décor for his Winter Dinner, Camellia Celebration, Feast Among the Foxgloves, Birthday Dinner, Al Fresco Fall Dinner, Dahlia Dinner, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Gatherings will inspire readers to mark each passing season with their loved ones in observance of the small joys that truly make our lives big.
