LONDON: Meet us at Anthropologie on Sunday, September 25th @1pm

September 22, 2011

Hello everyone! I’ve been a bit missing in action, I know, but next week when I’m back from my travels decor8 will be at full swing again with lots of wonderful things to share. I’ve been busy on my US book tour with Chronicle Books and Anthropologie, gave the keynote at The Creative Connection, and in the early morning I’m flying to London for design week but I’ll be back blogging full-time again on Wednesday, September 28th. I can’t wait – I’ve REALLY missed connecting with you here each day but a completely sponsored book tour is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity so I couldn’t refuse – plus I got to meet so many of you – yay! BUT it’s not over yet… NEXT UP IS LONDON!

LONDON: Meet us at Anthropologie on Sunday, September 25th @1pm

This weekend I’ll be in London at ANTHROPOLOGIE on KINGS ROAD! I’ll be joined by Interior Design extraordinaire Abigail Ahern, Stylist/Photographer Leslie Shewring and Decorate co-author Joanna Copestick for a fun decorating party to talk about mood boards, show how they’re done and of course to meet everyone. Anthropologie is throwing a nice spread for us too with Bloody Marys and snacks, so RSVP if you’d like to join us: — it’s from 1:00-3:00 (I have to leave at 3 pm for another event) so please stop by to say hello to Abigail, Leslie, Joanna and I. We’d love to meet you and connect with other creatives, bloggers, etc.

And as you know, Abigail Ahern (shown above in her gorgeous home) is a total rock star in the design world so just having her as part of this event is a total honor and I’m certain you’d love meeting her and hear her advice about decorating, too. Abigail owns a gorgeous shop in London and is the author of a book that I love called A Girl’s Guide to Decorating. The event is completely open to the public, so do stop by – we’ll be starting promptly at 1:00.

See you in London!!!

    I like your blog would love to come and meet you but unfortunately I will be at Decorex on sunday

  • Reply Ruth September 23, 2011 at 2:37 pm

    I liked your book very much, although I wonder if on this blog there will be something else than announcements about the book, book tour or topics related to the book in the future… (which is very nice and useful of cause…)? It seems to have been transformed a little bit to a plateform solely destined to promote it, at least in my eyes.
    Greetings, Ruth

      @Ruth – I’m on a book tour at the moment – one of the most exciting adventures of my life – and I’m excited to share it and let everyone know where I’ll be next since many have expressed an interest in meeting me and vice versa — so you’ll have to endure it a bit more until I wrap things up! For now, you are welcome to visit other design blogs and then return in a few weeks when I’m finished. Thank you!

    It’s so nice that you are having such a wonderful time and are able to share your knowledge with so many people in person. I wish I could be there, too. It feels a little strange though, not seeing you here everyday. Know that you are missed!

  • Reply Erin September 26, 2011 at 10:39 pm

    I can’t wait to check out that book, The Girl’s Guide to Decorating. Also- I love that couch (even if I can only see part of it)!!!

    Your keynote talk at The Creative Connection was fabulous. I loved hearing how you began your blog and meeting you at the book signing!
