I already told you about Holly's wonderful new book, but only until recently did I have the change to scroll to the actual book myself. And wow how many pages of inspiration... each room in a home gets plenty of attention. Many useful tips and ideas are given together with illustrated floor-plans. Not just one style but a variety of different styles, contemporary, modern, floral, colorful and white you name it... and I like that very much. With all these different styles the book will definetly appeal to a very wide audience and it's no wonder to me that Decorate was ranked #2 in the Wall Street Journal... an absolute bestseller so to speak! And I'm honored and thankful to Holly for have a tiny little spot in her book :) like many other guests Holly has quoted bloggers, interior designers and other professionals throughout the book.

UK Interiors author, Joanna Copestick, was following decor8 and thought that it would be nice to do a book together that merges the voice of an American (me) with someone from another part of the world, like her, who lives and works in London. She also thought I had a good eye and thought that working with me would be interesting as I could work on the visuals - book homes that I like, hire the photographer that I wanted to work with,travel to the homes to direct the shoots and style, and then write a portion of the book. I also was assigned the task to produce the entire directory on my own which took me months. I relied on decor8 archives for lots of those resources. ..........READ MORE >>>
