Thomas Jayne:: The Finest Rooms in America book giveaway!


With all of the craziness of my computer being gonzo last week, I wasn't able to post about this fantastic, Thomas Jayne, book give away. Until now.





This book is a definitive catalog of interior design with rich, colorful photos that record a full range of aesthetics and styling including everything from Albert Hadley’s modern sitting room





  to the 200 year old, Tea Room at Monticello.




Thomas Jayne's writing has been said to be written with a  “unique and quirky voice steeped in the history of decorative objects but cognizant of modern mores.” 

This book is really comprehensive and just gorgeous. A must have for your design book library.  And I have one book for a lucky recipient.

You know how the game goes. Leave a comment. Your in the running. Tweet it too, with @beachbungalow8 in the text, and get doubly in the running.  

Let the games begin!!


{entries will be closed at midnight of next Tuesday, March 8th 2011. I will announce the winner by Friday, March 11th }

Hi Megan,

I have been reading your blog for a couple of months now. I found you via Skirted Roundtable - love it and tell everyone about both! Your beach bungalow (& lifestyle) is fab - love the wallpaper in dining area and the master bedroom... what a cool space. Saw the L'wren (sp?) blue gown you posted on a famous bod at the Academy Awards! I collect decor/ design books - this one looks very good! Thanks! - CindyE

It certainly looks like a wonderful book to curl up with on a Saturday morning. I visited Monticello a few years ago in the summer. What a picture perfect place! The location, the architecture, the details...I'd love to go back and visit again, someday. Look forward to seeing those images in this book...keeping my fingers crossed that I'd be the lucky winner.
