As you know, I am hard at work at my book. In fact today we are busy shooting a project I have been working on for TWO YEARS and it’s so very gratifying to get to this place in which I feel things are DONE. However, this book project is massive. MASSIVE. And although I have a good grasp on the full concept, I still worry that it won’t live up to your expectation (cue the shrink and my unending battle against poor self-esteem). I lose sleep over this. So it’s time I helped myself by asking for your help….
Some book shoot sneak peeks via my Instagram:
I wanted to check in with you guys, whom this book is FOR, and ask- what exactly are you hoping to see and read in this book? What would make my “blog to book” feel valuable to you? It’s so important to me that my dedicated readers love it, so I appreciate any feedback you can give me. I can promise that you’ll finally get to see a lot of my work, most I have never shown on this blog. I also am going to feature designers I love- not big famous ones you’ve seen a zillion times- but rather my peers, many whom have gained popularity through blogs and other forms of social media.
The thing that I hope makes this book different is that I am going to bring a more personal element and sense of humor the design concept. Homes are a reflection of our lives and I think we need to embrace that and accept that our spaces are never going to be perfect. We have TV’s to deal with, family heirlooms we want to incorporate, kids toys to organize and budgets that leave much to be desired. I aim to have this serve not only as an aspirational tome but an inspirational one too. And one that will make you laugh as much as it will fire up your desire to decorate!
So share your thoughts, please!
