Excerpt In Simple Things Magazine

Hello everyone and happy Friday! How are you? I am packing since I fly to London (for the launch party) in a few hours, but I want to thank Simple Things magazine in the UK for a beautiful 8 page excerpt in their latest issue #3 from my new book, Decorate Workshop. The book just launched in the UK and will launch TWO WEEKS earlier than expected in the US – it is available TODAY! We just found out yesterday so it’s a great surprise. Thank you Simple Things for the wonderful excerpt, here’s a peek below but if you want to read all 8 pages you’ll need to pick up a copy of the magazine or buy a digital copy on your mobile device.

    What a lively spread and great advice!! I especially love the sofa with the great gallery wall behind it. Even more excited to get Decorate Workshop now!

    Thank you Mer – I brought those things into that corner except for the cabinet – it had a tv on it before I got there ;). The scarf on the chair was Debi’s (the photographer) – I asked her if I could borrow it for the photo. :)

    Congratulations, Holly, and safe travels! Perhaps our paths will cross in New York or Santa Barbara on your tour!… As for the spread, I especially love the grouping of pictures above the sofa and hope it will encourage people to be a bit more adventurous in hanging and displaying their art. Can’t wait to get my hands on the book… Best, Frances

    So, so beautiful! I love following you on Instagram … such fun inspiration during the day when I’m waiting in carpool lines (or need distraction when I’m procrastinating writing!)

    Yay! The mail carrier just delivered your new book which I ordered through Amazon. So excited, I can’t wait to finish my work day and sit down and read tonight. I’d much rather spend my evening with your book than watching post election coverage!
