    I live in Philadelphia, PA (USA). I love your blog and I’ve been reading it for at least the past year. I can’t remember how I stumbled across it, but it must have been a link from another blog. Two of my favorite types of posts that you do are the “Etsy Take 5 Tuesdays” and when you focus on color groupings – it always inspires fresh ideas for me. I can’t wait to check out your book!!

    Dear Holly,

    I love reading your blog every day. I discovered your Decor8 a couple of years ago and from that day on I’ve been reading it daily.

    About the question: What would you love to see/read more about on decor8 in the future?

    It’s a hard question because I love Decor8 the way it is. But maybe it would be great to see/read more about interior design in Europe. I love the inspiring pictures you’ve posted and one of them even inspired me to choose the same colours in my bedroom.
    I’m a Dutch student and I’m always busy decorating, trying things with colours and I can honestly say your blog is a great way to think out of the box and dare to try!

    I really like what you’ve done so far so keep up the good work and I’d love to see and read more of your work in the future!

    Yours sincerely,

    Jorissa van Ginkel
    Tiel, The Netherlands

    Ooh, very exciting… the book looks amazing. Thank you for the give-away competition :)

    I think I would love to see more of the same that you already cover, but especially home-wares and textiles by individual independent design companies doing lots of hand-made loveliness… mostly because that’s the field we’re in (!) – but really because I just love that kind of stuff and could spend every penny I earn on yummy things for the home! ;) Always looking for new finds :)

    Congrats again on the book, and the launch – looked FAB! xo

    I’d love to see more “before and after” shots of spaces you style or that are styled. Or perhaps someone has a collection of personal things and things they wish to display, they set them out in a pile, and you give an example of how to style them in their home! I think that would be great to see- you’re talented in this way, and I’d love to see what you do with real-life examples.
    So excited about your book- I know it’s going to be a huge success! Congratulations on the endeavor!

    I want one! I just discovered your blog about a week ago, so it’s hard to answer your question, but I’ll try: I subscribed because of the Etsy Take Five Tuesdays (I love discovering new shops), and what I’m looking for in a decoration blog such as yours is mostly inspiration, whether simply beautiful pictures (you have a lot of that!) or quick and cheap tips (which you also seem to have)!

    Regarding you question: how about photography? I’ve always watched the compositions and the lighting closely but it will sure be different if it was from you. How about a weekly or even a monthly advise about to take such photos, how to show the best about a place or a interiors accessories? That is what I would love to read about :)

    Wow! It would be so great to win a copy!!

    I love the content of decor8, so it’s hard to say what I’d like to see more of, but I guess I would say perhaps more posts about concrete ways to infuse a space with one’s own personal style, passion, etc., that you are so great at promoting, in a budget friendly way. I love all of your examples of people incorporating items of personal meaning, and I work very hard to do that myself as well as help clients to do so. But…I know I have been very inspired by your ideas of ways to use/transform/modify easily found items (like budget friendly items from big box stores) to something more personal. I love hearing creative ideas of ways to “think outside the box” in terms of using items that most people could easily find and afford. While I love incorporating vintage and flea market finds, geographic location (some areas of the country/world just don’t have many treasures buried in the junk ;)!) and time constraints can make that more difficult. Of course, there is always wonderful etsy and ebay, but the more ideas, the better, I think!

Thanks for sharing this ideas with us and carry on doing this because it’s worth it. I would like to see though, some ideas on decorating the house,step by step,from the painting on the wall, to the furniture used. And more dye projects.
    If I get this wonderful book,I would probably be the first to have it in Romania. :P

    Hello,

    I so would love to have a copy of this book!

    In the future, I’d like to see more tips for cheap decoration. Not really DIY because I’m not really good at it, but things to learn how to “light” a small room, where to find beautiful things not expensive, how to “arrange” a small room to make it confy, or which small and easy details could do the difference. Small tips like that, easy to apply for those who are not really good at DIY but who are dying to give some “decorative touches” to their home.

    Keep on keepin’ on with what you’ve been doing, but the universal aesthetic appeal of STRIPES, NUMERALS, LETTERS and “refreshed” items should be featured always. Decorating beauty that appeals to and can be shared by both men and women at the same time is what decor8 excels in and seems to be what the book emphasizes.

Knowing of similar pieces, paint colors, etc. would make decorating more accessible for us all. I’m so excited for you! So much is happening in your life! Good Luck!

I would love to see on Decor8 more real homes, with your tips on how to achieve the ‘looks’ for myself.

    Congratulations to you! Your book looks beautiful & I’ve enjoyed reading about your adventures on Twitter.

    I would love to see more about design with children in mind…and also ways to decorate on a budget {maybe ways to achieve a designer look with a lower price tag}.

    Thanks so much for the chance!

    Love the book – just got my coy last week, but love the uk cover, so I’m in!

    I’d like to see more room remodels that also include photos of the dirty parts – getting from original to the final finished spaces and what comes in between. And some DIY projects as well. Mostlynthis site works for me and is the only blog that I faithfully read every day! Congrats on the book, on which I’ve posted a personal book report about today on my blog!

    Hi Holly, I’d love to get a copy of your book as I love your blog for the inspiration that it provides me on a daily basis. We are in the process of doing up our Victorian semi here in the UK and I would love to see more inspiration about putting the character back into a property. Mixing the old with the new, beautiful interior textiles, the more colour and pattern the better. I love interesting colour schemes and prefer those above an all white room. I would also love to get an insider peek into the homes of designers and artists.

    Decor ideas including creative, affordable storage solutions for the music room, a real clutter hot spot. There are many spouses of musicians out there; never a dull moment, but there is a lot of STUFF… multiple guitars, electric bass, upright bass, recording equip, mike stands, cables, drums, hardware, cases… not to mention hundreds of CDs, DVDs, LPs, even cassette tapes, etc..

    As a graphic designer I know it has potential to be the coolest house in the room. I just need a little inspiration.

    Congratulations on your book, Holly! It looks lovely and I can’t wait to read it. I would love to see more of your home on the blog. I know you sometimes post pics on Haus Maus but I haven’t seen much of your own place lately. I would also love to see peaks into homes in Germany or other parts of Europe. It would be really great to have a look into your neighbour’s houses.

    I love your blog just the way it is, but if you were to add anything, I’d say include a few more short stories on the lives of the people you interview- and sort of how they got started, to give us some more career aspiration/inspiration. I bet there are people out there who wonder, “how exactly can I get into this field?”

    As far answering the question: decor8 is already one of my favorite blogs but if I could add one thing it would be more “real life snapshots”. I would love to see more photos of your appartment, or Hannover streetshots. I would also love to see photos of your German friends houses. Kind of like the photos in your book, but more like unstyled snapshots.

I’d really love to see some examples of how to take something that clearly is not working-perhaps a room with too little light, or an awkward shape, and show how you would transform the space creatively and on a budget. I also love seeing artists homes and studios too~I love homes that are not over styled and perfect. ~thanks for all the inspiration!!

    I would love lighting tips, display tips, etc.
    I would also love to win your book.
    I say “selfishly” because I have a website offering home decor items and will soon have a new site with a blog attached, and I would love to have better pictures! Thank you for the inspiration you provide so many!

    As an Interior Designer with an ethical bent – I would love to see more “carbon-footprint friendly” solutions relative to one’s local area. I think it would be great to help people be creative and inspired by what is going on around them and not necessarily “need” the ottoman all the way from San Franciso …. ;-)

    I would love to read more about decorating childrens rooms. Particularly little boys as that is what I have. Whenever I look for inspiration I just seem to find nice idea for GIRLS! I’d love advice on the decor, furnishings and even storage. I’d like to know how to make the space no matter how big or small works and be fun for the child. It also needs to be easy to tidy up for child and, more often than not, mummy. I think anything for Kids is interresting.
    I also love reading about special little accessories or knick-knacks that have been found and are just irresitable. Preferably in a price range that is accessable. An adorable throw or even be a shower curtain or such. Actually you wrote an article on Bathrooms that had a lovely “Fluffy” shower curtain that I LOVED!

    Wow… so many comments. Congratulations. It’s amazing to get a better idea of who your readers are. Ok… on to the question. I run a few vacation rentals in Buenos Aires. What’s important to me in choosing with whom I work is first the location of the apartment and second the design. Sometimes there are great spaces that just need a few touches to really make them pop. That’s what I’d like to see covered because whether it’s for the places I’m renting out or for my own living situation (which tends to be 2 years here and 2 years there) inexpensive pops can’t be beat. In essence, imagine you have to move into a drab place and make it a home without removing anything. Badumdum!

    Holly, I’ve been following you on Twitter and here on your book adventure. So happy it went so wonderfully for you. Ever since the BYW class and then my husband bought me the book. Guess what I do every night before sleep. I look at Decorate! I can’t walk very well right now. So…I hobble up the stairs and my husband says…do you want “the book?” The class and the book have been such a bright beautiful light in my life all these weeks. I can’t even begin to tell you what changes I am making in my life and with my blogging. Thanks so much! You deserve all the wonderful things to come your way…you’ve earned it!

As much as I love DIY, I’m finding it increasingly frustrating when I cant find an item that is similar to the DIY inspiration picture… gets me every time (we have slim pickin’s here in Calgary, AB).

    I guess as I sit and ponder on this….I would love to see more coverage on travel to “special” places/shows/shops/gardens etc…. you know, kind of like a board on what to do this weekend for folks who love Decorate Style. I have no idea on how to accomplish this other than start a Flickr site for people to submit photos of such places/events with the information.

    I also think it’s so nice to see folks who are small “mom and pop” businesses who are trying to get their feet off the ground.

    Ways to purchase items to benefit worthy causes?

    I love your blog, and your concern for all of us readers….I ‘m not sure how you will add to or improve….it’s so great already! :)

    Holly I am so greatful for the lovely blog you have created. It is evident that you are a giver, you have shared everything with us -I’ve found wallpaper, knick knacks -books, information about so many things directly through the links provided on your blog. I always feel so included whenever I pop in and have learnt so much about myself and how to decorate my home with heart. I even started a blog because of you. I am so excited at the prospect of being able to have a paper version of all your great work to flick through time and time again. You are a true inspiration -as a mum and homemaker my home environment means so much to me -You’ve helped me so much create a home aesthetic that is meaningful and beautiful to us.

    Hello holly, How exciting! What I would love to hear more on Decor8 about is you holly, you know… how life is treating you… what’s happening, the wonderful point you’re your at in your life, how and if success makes you see things differently or is if it just seems the same…. your everyday life… the ups and if any? the little downs. I would love you to talk a little more about yourself as you are so incredibly gifted at writing from the heart. Best wishes. xMichelle p.s. pick me! please pick me! so I can drink endless cups of tea and dote on every last detail of your book.

    Holly,
    I love Decor8 just the way it is, so I’m struggling a little to answer this question. I do love to read about artists/designers/writers/creatives lives, what inspires them, motivates them, how they work etc. so perhaps more interviews? Love the book Holly, congratulations x

I stumbled across your site way back in the early days and have religously check in to be inspired! I’m from Queensland in Australia and our homes are very diiferent to those that I see on your site. I’d love to see some different decorating styles, other than the clean white scandinavian style, from time to time! I really do love it, but I’d really love to see other styles featured, I really enjoyed your Marrakesh trip for example.
    All the best to you.

What about a feature where you present new products from your selected shops? I don’t think I’ve seen this feature on your blog, but I can’t say for sure.

    Decor8 is the FIRST design blog I found on the internet and I’ve been hooked every since. I think what I’d like to see more of is the process & philosophy behind putting a look together, maybe some educational & historical info about the pieces selected & styles selected – Chippendale chairs, Victorian design, Country French, Antique, Retro, Jonathan Adler… as I delve deeper & deeper into design, I’m constantly taking notes of things I’m not familiar with or want to research to better understand.

    Hi!! What a great giveaway, i can only dream about your book!! ? I’m your follower for about a year already, and your site gave me so much inspiration!! I started learn photography because of your site by the way.. :) everything is so beautiful here! Just wanted to thank you, and for the Flickr group too (i always send my photos and see if you choose them or not, and i’m really so happy when you choose some of them!! :) it’s an honor for me). I love handmade, and your blog always inspires me.

    I’d love to see in decor8 in the future
    ? maybe a column about different countries’ ornamental art pieces (you know something like Japanese teabowls or handmade Uzbekistan plates&dishes, African accessories or Russian gzhel etc…)
    ? i know it is maybe difficult but of course i’d like to see/read some tips ‘how-to decor8′ (how to stand bowls with flowers and take photos, how to select and gather colors together etc., something that can help to learn photography and simply that can help me to make my own home so beautiful as like homes on your photos :) )

    Thank you so much!!

    A common dilemma here in suburban Arizona is the lack of unique homes with character. Our homes are often newer builders grade, cookie cutter, stucco statue tributes to beige. I would love to see practical DIY tips to add charm and flair to our drab abodes. Keeping in mind we don’t have hard wood floors, window frames, crown molding or brick features.

    I really like to craft, so some easy DIY things would be lovely – maybe some of the creative readers could be guest DIY people. The craft could reflect their ‘style’ or prehaps show their countries’ influence.

    regarding what i’d love to see more of, i’d love more home tours (it gives me ideas on what to “copy” for my own home), and more “international options” (as i am half a world away). i live in a developing country and while i love it here, some of the things that you feature aren’t that easily available where i am.

    Hi Holly!

    Have all my fingers and toes crossed that the lucky winner will be me!!

    It would be exciting to see more projects or ideas of thrift/vintage finds from yourself, or anyone, that can be upcycled into new useful creations! Also, I’ve always loved Color Me Pretty so keep that going – it’ll be nice to delve deeper into colour trends and explore any scheme that is possible under the sun. :)

    Thank you and your publisher for this give away!

    Hi Holly.

    Wow, so many comments already! Clearly everyone wants to win your book :)

    I know exactly what I would like to see on decor8: more about how you became so sucessfull! and maybe some advice for new designers and young bloggers…

    I live in South-Africa and I am just starting out as a designer and blogger. I am loving both very much. You have been a real inspiration to me since the beginning of my journey.

    Here we don’t have many sucessfull interior/ creative bloggers of your calibre. It would be really helpful and quite wonderful to get some inside tips from someone I admire.

Some DIY regarding decoration or sewing would be very nice (love the lights that you posted some time ago).

    Hi Holly

    First of all, well done on your new book – I know there has been a lot of work to get to where you are – sit back and enjoy it for a good long while. :-) On Decor8 I would like to see a greater emphasis placed on the stories behind the work – learning more about the designer and their passions. I think it would be great to hear how people got to where they are, what inspires them and any advice they may offer to those beginning on the design path. It could be a weekly, fortnightly feature with interviews about designers that perhaps have inspired you or do you ask people to write in with their own suggestions and reasons why a particular person has inspired them. So Decor8 encourages as well as inspires…! Another suggestion, would be a day in the life of..? Sometimes the design life can be lonely especially when work is beginning and you have very few ‘contacts’ or work is slow (I think this is reasoning blogging exists in the first place – connecting with people who are on a similar wave length). It would be good to document what happens on a normal day for a designer, where to do they find their inspiration, what happens when they get a mental block etc? You could have varying designers – designers who run an etsy shop from their home…all the way to designers who work for big publishers. It could be that varied and interesting!

    What ever is in decor8 in the future I know I will be tuning in indeed. I read decor8 on a daily basis and it cheers me up. I want to end and say thank you for all the inspiring work that is here already. It is great to see you do so well and is an inspiration to us all. I look forward to reading more blogs already…:-)

    I usually don’t participate in give-aways because I believe there is always someone more deserving than me… however this is way too good a chance to pass up, so I would love to throw my name in the hat.

    What I would love to see more of on your blog is a glimpse into HOW and WHY people style their homes the way they do, what inspires them and how we can achieve a similar look in our own homes… a glorified DIY of some sorts.

    Thank you so much for this opportunity and my most heartfelt congratulations on your achievement!

    Much love to you,

    I would love to see a decorating challenge tackled on a regular basis, maybe once a week. A before and after of a corner of a room, tabletop, art wall, etc. that needs an imaginative designer’s eye. It could be you as the designer, Holly, or maybe a guest’s ideas to complete the re-do. I would enjoy learning how you go about finding the perfect object to accent a space. What shops, thrift stores or websites were you able to use to do your magic. Make it simple and economical, we’ll be sold! Everyone likes to feel empowered enough to try a small-scale change themselves. You could show us how each week.

    I love your blog and would cherish a copy of your book!

    One of the things people tend to always compliment me on is the ability to find thrift store, yard sale, cheap finds, or things just lying around the house that you’d never think to turn into something else into gorgeous decorative pieces in my home. I find that constantly seeing and reading up on ways that others get creative keeps my mind freshly able to come up with ideas of my own and keep the possibilities endless when it comes to my own interior design ideas. I would love to see some diy’s and posts on how to make everyday unexpected things into gorgeous pieces in a home. In general just more of a way for the everyday person who may not even have a clue about interior design or have the resources to go out and buy a whole new lot of things for the inside of their home a way to make it a little more beautiful either through refurbishing or using things they already have on hand. Walking people through it will help those who want to learn to be more creative learn the process and direction of those who already are. Summarized: Shabby-Chic, DIY, and Creative Process. A bit of inspiration is always good to get the creative juices flowing! ;)

I know you have your etsy finds that you highlight, as well as designers, photographers, and decorators, which is always a treat. I think, with the whole DIY crafter movement really making a comeback, it would be cool to hear more about people who are hand making their craft, and hearing their stories about how the are breaking into or have broken into the retail market. You showcase so many lovely things, it would be cool to learn how these creative people stumbled their way into the world of commerce. just an idea. Thanks a million!

Told like a sort of ‘journey journal’, with images of all the stops and start destinations along the way. Particularly taking into account the gifted handcraft artists of today.

    Curious about your take on personalizing a house when every house on the street is the same floor plan (military housing) definitely more fun when people can walk in and feel surprised . . . but it has to be fast, inexpensive and easy to return to standard issue when it’s time to move – my favorite thing to do is remove cabinet doors in the kitchen, least favorite is to paint – more ideas would be great.

    Wow, its clear to see how inspirational your blog is to so many – the book is a fantastic way for us all to have a permanent reference book in our homes to keep inspiring us to go for it and follow the ideas, and examples you give. I’d love to see more before and after shots, specifically what were the main points of inspiration that you started with and the journey or steps taken for the finished product/decor/design and see how it evolves. Maybe you could have some readers send in once a month their journey of redecorating and how they used your suggestions and ideas and the steps they took – this also helps to inspire people and give them the oomph some of us need to think if Mrs Joe bloggs can do it, then so can i!

    It would be great if you coulf show more interior tips on a budget, things you can make quick and easy with items not too expensive like flea market founds etc. Also more home tours please ! And some inspirations for garden and balcony would be cool. Wish you a nice Easter holyday with loads of Ostereier ! Greetings from Duesseldorf

    I can’t wait to see the inside of your new book in person! I’d love to see design solutions to problem or hard to decorate spaces. I had a corner in my living room that was the bain of my decorating existence. I searched all over online to see if I could find ideas and nothing! I ended up coming up with a solution I was so happy with on my own, but it sure would have been nice to see examples of how others dealt beautifully with the issue I was facing. I’m sure there are many problem areas out there that we’d all love to see how other’s decorate over or around such as awkward corners, hot water heaters, ugly brick, walls covered in barn wood (my current issue), etc.

    Hi Holly – Congrats on the book! I’d love to win a signed copy.

    Your content is really great, but I particularly like it when you propose a “conversation” and ask readers to interact on a particular topic eg. ‘is your life all about blog content’ so I’d love to see more of those type of pieces. They always have a particular point of view and make for interesting opinion.

    I’m a person who is absolutely in love with the written word, so I try and put up literary quotes on my walls and fill my room with as much inspiration as much as possible. I’d like to see more of that, and ways to creatively organize and display a huge amount of books. Unfortunately I have a very small room, so right now they’re just lying in wobbly stacks on the floor.

    It’s so difficult to answer your question.. I like your blog because it speaks about decoration but in different ways..
    So I like house tour, mood boards, corners of home, your etsy finds, your shop suggestions etc etc.. (I don’t love too much illustration and photograpy..)
    I like a lot easy and cheap suggestions about home decor, for example Manostiles Boxes post ;-)

    Country: Jersey Channel Islands (which is part of the UK….when it wants to be..)

    Hi, Holly! Love your blog and love your name, too, by the way. It’s the same as my 38 year old daughter’s!

    My only suggestion for your blog would be, perhaps, to make it a little longer each post. I’m like a kid with a 30 minute cartoon. It was wonderful, but I just wish it would last a littttle bit longer! LOL

    Have just ordered your book and am waiting impatiently for it. However a signed copy I’d keep forever and immediately gift the one I ordered to another decorating friend.

    Happy blogging, living, decorating! Thanks for the contest.

    I’m so incredibly excited for you…knowing you’ve had the courage to follow your dreams and work hard to have them become realities is so encouraging. Your book looks just gorgous.

I’ve been following decor8 for quite a while now (almost 3 years!), yet I had my peak of visits last year when I was finishing my PhD, mainly because looking at beautiful things helped me to relax my mind from scientific writing -and plus it was a wonderful way to procrastinate a bit :)
    I’ve discovered great things in your blog, and I think I have also improved my creative skills, so many, many, many thanks!!!!!!!
    Besides, I am a spanish living in Paris so some of your expat adventures sound familiar to me (though fortunately I do not have to cross the ocean to get home! :P )

I also like house/room tours and when you post pictures of your own space – sometimes, interiors look so stylised that you can’t ever imagine it working in a normal house, so it’s great to see examples of amazing spaces in real homes!

For me, it’s inspiring to see real people’s beautiful homes, their unique ideas, how they adapt simple and inexpensive items, gorgeous things working in real spaces (as opposed to in mags or just seeing beautiful items displayed on their own).

That may be someting that would be interesting to read more about on your site, maybe once a year when the market is on the rise in the spring? I’ve updated my blog with pics from my real estate listing (so you can see how you’ve inspired me over the years) as well as pics of my new home! Check it out if you are curious!

    I just recently found your blog and love it! It is very inspiring. As someone without the “eye” for decorating, I would love to see more posts about the “process” of decorating . . .the different layers that go into decorating a room, how to bring colors/patterns together that go well together but contrast each other a lot too, just stuff like that. For beginner decorators it would be a huge hit!

  1034. Jenni commented
    April 20th, 2011 at 11:18pm

    First, I can’t wait to see your book! Second, I like your blog postings as they are, especially because your unique style is so evident in everything you write/present/show, etc. In that vein, I’d love to see more posts (with pix, of course!) that explore your style as it translates to events — formal dinners, informal tea parties, birthday parties, etc. For instance, how do you re-purpose things you already love, or add to them, to decorate for a bridal shower or something? Something else that could be cool is some kind of problem/solution post, where a reader sends in a picture of a problem room or area and you (perhaps along with a panel of other design bloggers or friends) offer suggestions, with project ideas, links to products or art work, etc., again that help readers translate the elements of your style that they love into their own environment.

    And I think it goes without saying… giveaways are always so much fun! ?

    As for what I’d like to see more of on Decor8 – it’s hard to say since you generally introduce me to so many new designers, shops, etc. I guess I’d be interested in hearing more behind the scenes stories about Decorate. It sounds like producing it was quite the adventure and it would be fun compliment to reading the book.

    I love your style and this blog! In the future, I would love to see more DIY projects. I’m always so inspired by the things people create, especially on a budget. Thanks for hosting this giveaway, I’d love to win a copy of your lovely book!

    Hi Holly! I love Decor8 just the way it is, but I guess I’d be curious to read something more about wall decoration (how to display paintings, prints, photos, etc.) or more tips on how to decorate small spaces.

    Love,
