Decorate Book Launch at Liberty in London: April 13th!

I’m so excited to share this wonderful news with you today! The official launch party for my book Decorate will be at Liberty in London on Wednesday, April 13, 2011. I am thrilled to have such a gorgeous store so generously supporting me and my first book but equally happy to be able to invite you to this special event so we can meet and share a fun evening together. I do hope that you can attend! It will also be a great networking event as I have some lovely friends who will be there, including book photographer Debi Treloar, fellow bloggers, stylists, designers… even a few of the homeowners who are in Decorate will be celebrating with us. There will be a fun styling demo as well that I’ll be doing with my two dear friends, Sania Pell and Leslie Shewring.

Decorate Book Launch at Liberty London! Yay!

Liberty will have copies of the book available for sale that I will sign and they’ll be a few special things happening that evening. First, from 4-4:30 p.m. I’ll be speaking about the book and answering questions at an exclusive press event. Space for that is limited and you need to be a member of the press or a blogger to attend.

Next, at 6 p.m., I’ll be speaking again to Liberty customers and those interested in learning more about the inspiration behind Decorate.

At 7 p.m. I’ve invited two book contributors to do a styling demonstration along with me in the brand new Liberty Dining Room, stylist Sania Pell (whose home is inside of the book) and stylist, photographer and decor8 columnist, Leslie Shewring (her daughter’s bedroom is in the book too). Together we’ll show you how to lay a lovely table with a personal touch using beautiful things that we’ve collected from the inspiring Liberty store. I’ll also do a book signing so you may purchase your book there. I can’t wait to mingle but please do arrive on time as these events can fly by and I want to be able to meet each of you and have enough time to chat. Come prepared to be inspired and have fun!

To recap:

4-4:30 p.m. Meeting with the press. Please RSVP to: [email protected] with Decorate Press Event in the subject line and in the body of the email please indicate the magazine, newspaper, blog, etc.

6 p.m. I’ll be speaking in the Heritage room. Please RSVP to [email protected] with Decorate Talk in the subject line. Only a limited number can attend so please confirm your attendance as soon as possible.

7 p.m. Reception and book signing along with a styling demonstration in the new Liberty Dining Room, please RSVP to [email protected] with Decorate Demo/Signing in the subject line.

If you want to attend some or all of the above events, please put the event name in the subject line so we have an accurate headcount and RSVP separately to each event that interests you.

I can’t wait to see everyone there, I’m so excited to meet you! Yay!

See you soon! – Holly

It also sounds like an interesting day with a lot of exciting activities. Let me have a serious talk to my fiancé about my birthday present this year!

    This must be so exciting for you, Holly! I´m very happy for you.

    Huge congratulations, Holly!

    Firstly on the book – realising a childhood dream is a true gift to cherish and seeing all your years of hard work culminate in something as magical as your own book is well, WOW!

    Secondly, on launching it at Liberty – how stylish, glam and fabulous. I am sure it will be a magnificent event and truly an evening to remember. I’m sorry I won’t be around that day but will make a trip there soon after to pick up my copy. Can’t wait to see it and linger on each page.

    Enjoy every minute of the build up.

    Thanks for the never-ending inspiration that you share. I’m loving the BYW course.

I’m really excited for your book, which I’ll buy on some website that ships this far (Amazon perhaps?) as soon as possible. Something just occured to me though, and I don’t recall reading about it anywhere here: does your book have 2 different covers? I got confused. Congratulations for your lovely work!

    Hi Holly
    Just dropping by to say a BIG congratulations on the amazing launch of your book. I have read nothing but good reports about it. I would have loved to have come down to your Liberty event but circumstances here at home forbid it at the moment.
    What I really want to say is how proud I am of you and remember those early days when we were both blogging and I was a lone voice in the UK. You featured my blog on Domino and things were never the same again.
    You are a shining star in the blogging world as you have never been competitive and have always strived to help other bloggers on your way to success.
    Have a fabulous day at Liberty and enjoy every minute. I will be doing a big splash on Designers Block about your huge success and will let you know when it goes live.
    Best Wishes and Good Luck in the Future. I am sure one fine day our paths will cross.

    @Jane – I am doing on in Amsterdam on June 25 at the American Book Center and after, a big bloggers party in the Jordaan district — I have you on the list to invite you as soon as the details are confirmed but the date is locked in definitely for June 25. :)

    I just got my copy of Decorate in the mail from Anthropologie about 10 minutes ago. It is so awesome. I love, love this book. Can’t wait to sit down with some tea and read through the whole thing. Congratulations!

    Hoping to come along to the public bit Holly if I am in London that day (I split my time between London and Brighton until I move back to NW3 full time!) I can recommend a number of bars and coffee places around the back from Liberty towards Soho on Golden Square.

    Right next to Liberty (behind) is Kingly Street / Kingly Court. Loads of bars and nices places there :)

    Congratulation for the launch of your book! I wish I could be in London on 13th April but check the diary and I can’t be there…This won’t stop me to buy the book. A good excuse to pop in Liberty!

    HUGE congratulations Holly!!!!!! Can’t wait to see the book, really cannot wait!! Wish I could go to the Liberty event, my favorite store ever, and not just because they sometimes carry my fabric. Can’t think of any where as amazing and beautiful to have a book party. You truly deserve it for bringing so much beauty and inspiration to so many including me. That sounds generic, but I really mean it. You work so hard at this thing obviously, and you continue to bring lovers of design like me fresh inspiration filtered through your pitch perfect aesthetic every day. Thank you for this book and congratulations again.
