Kind Words From Near and Far

June 6, 2014

There have been some lovely posts this last month that I would like to share. Some by folks I know, others by people who focus on design and all that good & fun stuff that is so fun to read about. Quite honored to be mentioned. Thank you all for including me, the shops and the book.

My friend Elizabeth Moyer wrote about going to the New York book party at Deborah Needleman’s home on Pretty Pink Tulips her stylish blog. There were many people I did not know at that swell event, so it was so lovely to look around and be surrounded by familiar faces of friends old & new. Another one of those faces would be Marcy Michaud. I met both Elizabeth and Marcy at the same blogging event in New York sponsored by Kravet a few years back. Marcy writes Stylesson where she highlights design blogs. At that same Blogfest event I also met Holly Hollingsworth Phillips, who writes the blog The English Room who wrote a lovely piece about me and Style & Simplicity. Having the 3 of them at the Deborah’s party just warmed my heart. Even though I don’t get to see them often since we all live in different parts of the country, we keep in contact regularly and I know I have made life-long friendships with them. Also at the party were my 2 friends I have known for almost 20 years, Michael & Douglas. They owned a stationery company, Motel Deluxe, that I represented when I had my showroom. They now own the uber stylish shops, Cursive, with locations at Grand Central and ABC Carpet & Home. A friend of Elizabeth’s, Leslie, who lives in Seattle attended the book launch party at the shop on May 6th. She writes the blog Around the Table and she posted a beautiful re-cap of the party and of the evening. Two gentleman I have not met who live in the UK also did posts this last month that were quite swell. A-Gent of Style, Fabrice Bana, its founder and editor, is a French gentleman who is an interior designer who has lived in London for the last 16 years. Tudor Davies writes Designer Insights for his company, featuring design-centric folk around the globe. Truly, so humbled to be part of all of the above. I have linked each of the posts so just click on each. Happy reading!
