Nothing stops Interior Design Week in NYC, even having the Security Council in session and all its accoutrements -- sand trucks blocking streets, police men and women swarming about, Secret Service agents on their walkie talkies.
Rue Magazine's party at the NYDC was a smash hit last nite, everyone glammed up for the evening, many open houses at various showrooms, and tomorrow begins "What's New What's Next at the NYDC -- seminars, conversations with designers and new products in 80 showrooms!
It's certainly not stopping the Interior Design Week events in NYC, but the Security Council is in session, which means streets blocked off, Secret Service men and women plugged into and talking on their walkie-talkies, sand trucks positioned to stop traffic and police everywhere!

Let me guide you through the confusing maze of challenges involved in creating, publishing and selling the book you always wanted, one that sets you apart and presents you as a unique individual . . . a book that helps you build your brand.
Your friends can't do it. Your agent won't. I will.
So call me. You've nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Looking forward to hearing from you!

September's Traditional Home says the book provides "endless inspiration," and is described as a "treat" in the May/June issue of Veranda. It was the cover story of May's San Francisco Chronicle's Home Magazine, and photos of Lee Bierly and Christopher Drake's townhouse and their entire profile from the book were splashed across the pages of the April 18th Boston Globe Sunday Magazine. The Ft. Worth-Star Telegram gave it raves, Dallas and Houston editions of Modern Luxury will feature interviews with me this summer, and just in Baltimore Magazine ran a lovely feature this month. Many of the interior design blogs including Casa Sugar, Decor Dallas and Daily Hauteness gave it their blessings, describing "Designers Here and There" as a must-read.

Now if someone would jet me over so I could do some book signings ...
Sunday, May 30, 2010
All the signings -- San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Dallas, Houston and Santa Fe -- were fantastic experiences. It was wonderful to see old friends and make new ones. Plus spending time with the designers was invaluable. I'm full of new ideas now for books and articles. Stay tuned. And visit my Facebook page to see photos from all of them.

A joyous day for all those involved especially my editor Stacee Lawrence at The Monacelli Press, a Random House imprint, and my friends and the designers profiled in the book. I'm a happy camper!

Have you picked up the March issue of "House Beautiful" filled with info, pictures and ideas about Americans' favorite color? How many shades of blue could there be? Don't know, but there is definitely one for everyone. Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz used a delphinium shade for one of the guest rooms in his beach house. It's pictured in "Designers Here and There" available now on amazon.com. Stephen Shubel, also in my book, opines on blue in "The Last Words" column. His pithy comment is to be careful because in general blues are "not so great for most skin tones." Better choices are yellows, peaches and pinks. The above picture is a piece by Dale Chihuly, a favorite artist of Sana Fe designer Pam Duncan, who has several such pieces in her home profiled in the book.
