Letter from Amy Butler to decor8 readers…

Dear Decor8 Friends,


I just wanted to say how BLOWN AWAY I am by your mood boards! They are all so beautiful and inspired. The passion, thought and energy you put into them is incredible. I’ve spent a lot of time with all of the boards and each one is a fully imagined experience…… really works of art. I’m so jazzed to look at them, they are dreamy studies with luscious detail, you all have such lovely design eyes! I wish I could meet you and talk to you in person and learn more about what you love and what inspires you. I imagine all of you were as excited as me to see everyone’s vision. This kind of design experience really feeds my soul!

I love to make mood boards myself, I create several color stories before I sit down to create my artwork for my fabric lines. I’m getting ready to start a new collection and I’m so inspired by your creative fire!

Thank you all for participating in our contest. I appreciate all of the effort you put into this project. It’s a personal thrill for me to be able to connect with all of you. I love working with Holly too and I hope we’ll have more opportunities in the future to do more projects together.

Hats off to all of you! Thank you for sharing your love of design!

Amy Butler

    I enjoyed the mood board contest too! I wished I had time to submit one myself. Your new header is great. I love how it goes along with your new card too.

    Thank you for connecting all of us to Amy and your contest. I really enjoyed all the creativity. That is the great thing about art/design. No two are ever the same. We all have our own creative dna.
