Decorate, 1,000 professional design ideas… by Holly Becker


Let me start this week with a big congratulation post to Holly from Decor8… i'm super happy, delighted and excited for her becasue it won't be long now before her first book, Decorate,  hits the shelves… I can't wait to find out which houses she has visited for this book and I can only say: Holly, the publishing of this book  is so well-deserved! You have been the kindest blogger to me, to Bloesem and to many more people I believe and I hope this book is just the first of many more to come… perhaps next time you can include some Asian homes :)…

    Have you got the UK and US editions around the right way? It doesn’t look quite right the way it is. Forgive, but I do associate the US with slightly more twee styling for main-stream publications.

    I just came back from a breakfast launch in London, where this book was presented to a group of UK bloggers and I had the pleasure to meet Holly and joanna in person, I have got my copy signed by them and it is truly beautiful, full of inspiration and real homes, great taste and ideas, I think it is going to be a huge success!! One of my favorites already!!

    Thank you lovely Irene for the beautiful post, I can’t wait to get a copy in your hands so you can see it and so you can see where you were quoted, I think you will be very surprised and happy. When you see it, you’ll know why. 🙂

    So looking forward to the book!

    And the styling differences on the two covers are fascinating — would love to have heard the discussions the marketing department had about this!
