Good News!

I have some good news to share. We all need good news on a Monday, don’t we?! Okay so first, I was interviewed via podcast last week by Alison from Craftcast and you know, it came out really relaxed and nice and perhaps even a bit inspirational so you may enjoy hearing it. If you click on this link, my interview begins about 1/4 of the way in and runs for about 25 minutes.

Happy Monday

In the interview I talk about how I got my start in this crazy blogging adventure, how I feel about decorating trends, I even give some decorating advice and I reveal WHO is hosting the US book tour for Decorate, besides the lovely folks at Chronicle who are sponsoring it, of course. I hope that you enjoy “hearing” me as you “read” me so often, and that you’ll be around for my book tour, I’ll be posting all of the dates, times, locations, very soon so you can get it on your calendar. But for now, you can save the following dates:

  • Saturday, June 25th, Amsterdam, 5:00-7:00 pm at The American Book Center. Info here. Please come, hug me, hang out, sign my guest book… :)
  • Saturday, August 20th, Boston (Back Bay).
  • Tuesday, August 23rd, Chicago
  • Thursday, August 25th, San Francisco
  • Friday, August 26th, Los Angeles (Beverly Hills)
  • Monday, August 29th, Philadelphia
  • Tuesday, August 30th, New York City (SoHo)

I hope that you enjoy the podcast, I’m running out for a few hours so I’ll see you tomorrow!

Happy Weekend!

I’d like to wish all of you an inspiring and enjoyable weekend. I’ll be working on my window display for the American Book Center and I have a lot of work ahead of me but I am ready to pull together a nice window for them and can’t wait until I’ve installed it so I can share it with all of you! Yesterday I spent time in my studio listening to Ellie Goulding while shooting for Mowie Kay’s new magazine, due to launch very soon — I wrote some decorating tips and produced and photographed a few spreads that will hopefully inspire you. Once it’s out, I’ll let you know!

It was fun to produce something in my home studio, I have a new camera, I shoot tethered now and I’m learning more about my camera settings. I also have a fantastic tripod so I feel confident as I begin to explore shooting more things for my blog and for other projects. I’m no Debi Treloar, but I do love the freedom of being able to take decent photos because now I can better express myself through a new medium.

I wish you all a very nice weekend, make sure you notice and enjoy the details…
