Amsterdam Meet + Greet

Emma, Danielle, Sia and I have been discussing a plan to host a little informal meet + greet in Amsterdam for bloggers on Friday, September 5th. More details will follow in August but I wanted to give you a heads up in advance. I’m not sure how many Am’dam-based readers decor8 has, but it would be so nice to meet some of you in person, so whether you blog or not, consider yourself invited. It’s not often that I’m there, so if you live nearby and want to hang out, please join us.

his Amsterdam folder on Flickr. Stunning.

It would really help if you could drop me an email with the subject “Amsterdam” so I can save your contact information. (decor8blog AT Then when the time comes, I’ll send out a quick email with the location details. Of course, I’ll post details here a few weeks in advance, mid August, but it would help for the sake of finding a location to know in advance how many we can expect. I’m thinking a group of 20 would be nice. Again, we still have to iron out the details, but for now you can pencil us in for the evening of September 5th after dinner. A few of the girls will bring male friends/partners so singles and couples are invited, men are always welcome. :)

Color Notes

I just blogged a few notes on color over on Haus Maus and after writing it, I thought that some of you may enjoy stopping by to read it. If you’re interested, of course.

Here’s the link.

Front Opens! {Boston}

This one is for the Boston locals… You may have read about it in your morning Daily Candy but in case you missed it, Bob’s Your Uncle opened a home and gift store over in Fort Point over the weekend called Front – how exciting! Martin sent over a few photos, of course some things are better in person so if you are able please try to get over there and show your support. I have to take my own advice, I was just in Boston yesterday and wished I had known about Front!

I really like the gray felt bird…

…and these little chalk tables.

It’s encouraging to watch Fort Point grow, as I have a history in this city (we moved up from South Carolina in ’87 because my father was involved in the initial planning for the Big Dig) and always felt like it was a gem in the making — especially the waterfront. And I worked over the bridge near the post office on Summer Street for years, so I remember what it was and to see it being transformed into a thriving community for galleries, offices, and retail space is very exciting. Link here for news on the Fort Point redevelopment project.

Congratulations to Front and Bob’s Your Uncle!

Location: 25 Channel Center Street, Fort Point, Boston.

Just a little note to say that I’m back from vacation. I missed being here to meet with you each day but I needed some offline playtime. :) I hope you are doing well and for those in the states, I’m sure that the long weekend felt nice for you. Did you do anything special?

Pretty things collected from our yard today.

It’s so good to be back, I’ll see you in the morning. :)
