Dr. Quinn herself has been in the home design field for several years. I’m thinking home design is much like children’s books – everyone thinks they can do it. A friend of mine, an award winning and best selling children’s author, who’s been writing and illustrating children’s books for 20 years, is always bemused when celebrities start pumping out kids books and getting lots of press attention for it. Does being a celebrity (Madonna, Jamie Lee Curtis, Sarah Ferguson, to name three) and having kids qualify one as a writer? Or does having a beautiful home thanks to those celebrity level royalties qualify one as a designer? It’s part of the reason for this series of posts. When we have a celebrity branded line, is it good design and worth the price? Or are we just buying the name and paying for advertising? Let’s take a look at what Jane Seymour is offering these days.

Coming later this summer from Vintage Verandah is a collection of lighting and accessories based on Jane’s different homes – from England to California.
