this past weekend i went down the new book rabbit hole on amazon. i saw that steven gambrel has a new book coming out, then i saw suzanne kasler’s, then veere’s, then studio peregalli…..and so it goes. i pre-ordered them all. unfortunately i will all have to wait until fall. 

lot’s of great books to look forward too, but the one i’m most excited about is my friend paloma contreras’s new book, dream design live. i’ve gotten sneak peeks of paloma’s book, and i know it’s going to be a huge hit. she’s designing beautiful spaces, living the la dolce vita, and dreaming big! congrats paloma- i’m so proud of you!
