Inspiring Spaces From Decorate

April 28, 2011

I thought I’d share some inspiring spaces from my book, Decorate, that are currently floating around on the web (and some are part of this interview that Janet Reynolds had with me for her print magazine Life@Home) that you may actually want to add to your Pinterest account, desktop inspiration folder, or wherever you see fit. If you happen to own the book already, then you forever have these images in your possession, beautifully printed and bundled if I do say so myself. ;) But in case you don’t own the book you may delight in seeing these photos that were shot in beautiful homes in both Europe and the US by talented interiors photographer Debi Treloar. Debi shot the entire book using only natural light, something that drew me to her work in the first place years ago – her photos feel so inviting and casual as a result.

Ceramic pieces in Copenhagen home of ceramicist Karen and her husband Mads Hagedorn-Olsen. P.S. He makes the most beautiful insect art – see it here.

Charlotte Hedeman Gueniau’s dining room in Denmark – I had fun styling this tabletop for the photo with mismatched things from mostly her company, RICE.

Debi was a saint to work with — she was such a lovely person to spend time with as we flew around for a period of four months working together, mostly her and I, in people’s beautiful spaces. I hope that you enjoyed a teaser peek into my book! If you use them on your blog or Pinterest, all I ask is that you say that they were shot by Debi Treloar, link to her site, and link to this page: mentioning that they are from the book, Decorate. That’s all I ask. :)

    How beautiful! I am going to order your book too – these are fantastic teaser pages! So cute, and what I like most is that they’re HAPPY house pictures. I love the warm, bright, homey decorating styles, and these pictures definitely exemplify that style. They make me very happy just to look at! Thanks for the sneak peek!

    Sania Pell is a genius. I love her works especially the ones she designed for Pied a Terre and Monsoon. I also bought and read her book – The Homemade Home – 50 thrifty and chic handmade projects.

    I get most of my inspirations from Sania.

    If you’re an interior designer, Sania Pell is a god…

    I just started to read in your book and it’s wonderful! So much inspiration, so little time……I will definitely use it when I move to a new home and start all over. In addition I saw some great tips for my current home office.
