With its lush gardens, stately town houses, and sprawling plantations, Savannah is the epitome of old Southern style, and who better to give you the grand tour than Paula Deen, the city?s most famous resident and anointed Queen of Southern Cuisine? In this gorgeous, richly illustrated book, Paula Deen shares a full year of Southern living. Whether it?s time to put out your best china and make a real fuss, or you?re just gathering for some sweet tea on the porch at dusk, Savannah style is about making folks feel welcome in your home. With the help of decorator and stylist Brandon Branch, you?ll learn how to bring a bit of Southern charm into homes from Minnesota to Mississippi

. For each season, there are tips on decorating and entertaining. In the spring, you?ll learn how to make the most of your outdoor spaces, spruce up your porch, and make your garden inviting. In the summer, things get more casual with a dock party. Sleeping spaces, including, of course, the sleeping porch, are the focal point of this chapter. In the fall, cooler weather brings a return to more formal entertaining in the dining room, and in the winter, attention returns to the hearth, as Paula and her neighbors put out their best silver and show you how they celebrate the holidays. Paula loves getting a peek at her neighbors? parlors, so she?s included photographs of some of Savannah?s grandest homes. From the vast grounds of Lebanon Plantation to the whimsically restored cottages on Tybee Island, you?ll see the unique blend of old-world elegance and laid-back hospitality that charmed Paula the moment she arrived from Albany, Georgia, with nothing but two hundred dollars and a pair of mouths to feed. And she isn?t shy about giving you a window into her own world, either. From her farmhouse kitchen to her luxurious powder room, you?ll see how Paula lives when she?s not in front of the camera. Packed with advice and nostalgia, Paula Deen?s Savannah Style makes it easy to bring gracious Southern living to homes north and south of the Mason-Dixon Line
