Press Gives Thumbs-Up to "Designers Here and There"

An author couldn't ask for more! On March 25th, The New York Times ran a wonderful review of the book, and included a beautiful photo of the cover. I love the editor's closing line: "Read and be inspired, or jealous. Or both."

Today's the Day

"Designers Here and There" arrives in bookstores today. From usual suspects like Borders -- I was just told the one on Park Avenue in NYC has already sold out -- Barnes & Noble, Rizzoli and Archivia in New York to Books & Books in Miami, Walker Museum Art Book Center in Minneapolis and MoMA in San Francisco to the California hotel chain Ayres Hotels and Suites. It's in Canada too, from Vancouver in the west to Quebec and Toronto in the East, Paris, Milan and London.
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!

Architectural Digest Show

So much under one roof! Always a must, this year's show is better than ever. The New York Times' seminars featured designers as eloquent as they are creative, including Eric Cohler. He spoke about color and texture, using some of the photos of his East Side duplex from the book to illustrate his theories. And I was lucky enough to be present for the first sale at the Potterton Books stand!

People are Scooping Up the Book on Amazon!

Wow! "Designers Here and There" is #22 on Amazon's Top 50 list of residential interior design books...and it's not even out yet. Big hugs to everyone who's bought it so far. I'm a happy camper (in a gorgeous home, of course, not a tent).

Beautiful Basics

To many homeowners, kitchens and baths are the most important rooms in the house. And why not? The first is a comfortable place to gather friends and family; the second a retreat in which to relax, recharge, and let the woes of the day literally disappear down the drain. There are some fabulous ones in the book besides the two here: Eve Robinson's Watermill, New York kitchen and Michael Berman's Los Angeles bathroom. Enjoy!
