top--all rooted in real passion or obsession. The Peak of Chic's
Jennifer Boles brings it all to In with the Old. Her
inquiring eye unearths wonderful treasures of interior design and
entertaining from the past. But it's her insight and perspective
that makes it all suddenly modern and so now."

feel considered and chic. Her charming new book catalogs lessons
learned from the Greats and they're all here, wrapped nice and tidy

Smith, designer and author of Building Beauty: The Alchemy of Design "Jennifer Boles' blog "Peak of Chic" is a constant source of design history and style which I never miss and her new book "In With the Old" is the dictionary for the vocabulary of beloved design details that have been used throughout the years. A wonderful educational read."
