ABOUT JAN SHOWERS

Dallas-based designer Jan Showers came to her signature style from diverse and unexpected inspirations, including movies and novels, contemporary and vintage fashion, art, architecture, fine antiques and vintage pieces. Filtered through her unique sensibility, the culmination of these influences is usually summarized simply as "glamour."


Jan has written two books on the subject: "Glamorous Rooms" and her follow-up, "Glamorous Retreats," both published by Abrams. Together, her books display a cross section of the styles and decorative preferences that have made Jan and her firm one of the most important in the country.


Over the course of her career - spanning three decades - she has received many of the profession's highest honors. In January 2008, Jan received the Lifetime Achievement Award for Interior Design from Fashion Group International. Her magazine credits include Architectural Digest, Elle Décor, Veranda (where she appeared in their "Best of the Best" issue) House Beautiful and others.


Architectural Digest has named Jan Showers & Associates to the AD100, its preeminent directory to the international world of design.


Reared in small-town Texas, Jan possesses a rare fusion of sophistication and warmth, poise and a good sense of humor. When asked why she's so good at what she does, her reply is always that she truly loves her work.
