Rose Cumming: Design Inspiration

One of our newest additions to the Beach Collection is Rose Cumming: Design Inspiration. The book was written by Jeffrey Simpson, with a foreword by Sarah Cumming Cecil. It was published by Rizzoli International Publications with the assistance of Dessin Fournir Collections.

rosecummingRose Cumming was an iconic interior designer known for combining easy elegance with lush extravagance, featuring bearskin rugs and metallic wallpaper in her rooms. The book serves as a catalog of some of her work, as well as a biography of a woman who took the design world by storm.

The book can be checked out at the Hays Public Library.


The Ross and Marianna Beach Foundation provided an extraordinarily generous collection development grant for the purchase of books about art, biography, children, culture, history, music, science, and travel. The Beach Collection is located on the main floor of the Hays Public Library.
