today is a very big day, a very exciting day. my new book, Beautiful- All-American Decorating and Timeless Style, is finally here.
today i celebrate all things beautiful. beauty has been pretty much my sole inspiration. my love of beauty has inspired this blog, my interiors, and this new book.
when i was designing and laying out the book i told my publisher, rizzoli, that i wanted it to be about 11 inches tall and 9 inches wide. i think they were surprised because this is on the smaller side for a book (i think most people want bigger books- many think bigger means more important).
you might ask why i wanted a book this size? well, i wanted it to be the perfect size to sit on top of the stack of books on everyones cocktail table… and it helps that it is beautiful.
if you haven’t ordered a book, get a signed copy of the book here. we will send you one. when you get it, i hope it finds a home on top the stack.
here are instagrams from many of my good friends showing the beautiful book sitting on #topofthestack. when you get yours, join the beautiful course, post a picture on intagram and tag it with #beautifulbook and #topofthestack. every so i often i will do a blog post like this with all my favorite instagrams.
thank you everyone for all of your love and support. everyday is a beautiful day, but today’s extra beautiful!
