Decorate Workshop: My Next Baby!

Hello everyone! I’m so excited to finally get to share with you the covers from both my US and UK versions of my next book, Decorate Workshop! First, the US cover is shown below which is now in pre-order mode over on Amazon.com for half off the cover price so you’ll want to scoop this one up now – what a great offer!

Decorate Workshop US - Now in pre-orders!

Next is the beautiful UK cover which is also being offered at a terrific pre-sale discount on Amazon UK.

Decorate Workshop UK - Now in pre-orders!

Decorate Workshop was written, styled, shot and produced between February and July of this year so it kept me very busy between scouting, traveling, styling, working with the fabulous Debi Treloar again, writing (and writing and writing!), amongst the other things that keep a girl very busy when producing a book. My team in London at Jacqui Small Publishing was amazing and I cannot thank my editor, Sian Parkhouse, or the book designer, Sarah Rock, enough. I am so happy that my team was so dedicated and to have Chronicle Books and Jacqui Small publishing my second book to follow Decorate after they took such good care of me for my first book. It’s an honor beyond my wildest dreams to be able to write another and this time, I’ve gone solo and wrote it in the same voice as my blog which makes it an even more personal project for me.

I’ll tell you more about the book in the months to come and once it is printed, I’ll show you a copy, but I want to thank you all for your endless love and support and hope that you will love it. In it, I explain 8 creative steps to decorating and I show my own home, lots of mood boards and things I’ve pulled together to inspire you and of course, a bunch of gorgeous homes that we photographed in the US, UK and Europe.

Today is a happy day!

xo, Holly

    Congratulations, Holly. Wow..the second book already..that is exciting. The covers of both the editions look gret..though I’ll admit I personally find the UK one more enticing.

    Hola Holly, it is looking good, I wonder why the plublisher use 2 different covers for the book? is it a marketing strategy? I like both of them so gar the book looks like it is going to be another big success.

    Congratulations Holly! I particularly like the UK cover. Something about the purple and orange I think. Can’t wait to see what cover we get in Australia!
