I hope you all had a nice weekend. I wanted to share with you a few pages out of Holly Becker and Joanna Copestick's book, Decorate. I had the honor of having parts of my home photographed by Debi Treloar for this book last summer. As you see above, my daughter's room was a case study for ideas and tips on decorating with children.
My studio was also used a few times to show or explain some of Holly's decorating ideas. I do not have air conditioning in my studio and it was crazy hot due to a heat wave the day we were all out there for the photo shoot. I felt so bad for Holly and Debi!
My dining room, living room and master bedroom were also used in the book. I know I am biased as I am really good friends with Holly, but I think this book is FANTASTIC. Holly and her team worked very hard to bring together an inspiring, accessible and educational decorating book. You will find floor plan ideas, tips on flowers and entertaining, style guides and much much more. I have been reading it constantly and I can not get over Debi's beautiful photographic work. She is one of my favorite photographers. Between Holly's great eye for design and Debi's talents this book is an awesome gift for yourself or for a creative friend.
I joined Holly, Debi, Joanna and other good friends for the book launch of Decorate in London earlier this month. The launch party was at the Liberty of London flagship store just off Regent Street. Their fabrics are insanely beautiful and the space, well, amazing, a must see if you are ever in London. I had the pleasure of working with Sania Pell and Holly on some table styling for the launch party which was a real treat. Sania's home is featured on the cover of the US version of Decorate as you can see above.
I was thrilled to be there with Holly to celebrate her achievement. She is a warm generous soul who deserves nothing but great success.
