Boston Globe Style & Arts

I’m happy to announce that my first Style piece for the Boston Globe’s Style & Arts section appeared in yesterday’s edition of the Globe (text version here).


If you’re local, I hope you had a chance to see it. If not, I wrote about flowers as a trend and featured 8 products (linked below) that I thought Bostonians would enjoy. If you’re not local, here are the items featured:


Guide: 1. Thicket Saffron bedding from Dwell Studio, 2. Dogwood ring available at Anthropologie, 3. Virginia Johnson Textiles, “Forest in Yellow”, 4. Flora sandals from J Crew, 5. Woodruff necklace by Prismera Design, 6. Botanist Flora tables by Orange 22 available at Design Public. 7. Flower mirror from Modern Dose, and 8. “The Camellia” print by Yumi Yumi’s Aline Yamada.

Beefed up Blogroll

I gave my editor over at Real Simple some home design-related blogs to add to Simply Stated Home & Organizing under, “Blogs We Like”. She included a few that I read daily, so go check out who we’ve included. More will be added in the future, but it’s a start for now. I can already see a couple of the usual suspects (sorry!) missing so over the next few weeks more will be added.

If you are listed and would like to link to Simply Stated on your blogroll, please do. Here’s the link: http://simplystated.realsimple.com/home/.

If you’re not listed and you actively author a blog on a wide range of topics relating to home decorating and design that you’ve had for at least one year, please comment below so I can see about adding you in. It would be nice to include more great reads on the Simply Stated blogroll to point Real Simple readers to additional gems online. Thank you!
