  3. E-Gene

    Though we couldn’t really afford to buy a really nice house, I love experimenting to see how best to make it look good. This book will really help in inspiring me to do just that.

  4. Marlene

  6. Sarah

    I would love to win this book! I’ve been a fan of Holly’s blog for years and I’ve really enjoyed reading about her experiences creating this book – but I’ve still not actually seen the actual book so it would be great to have a copy. Plus I’ve recently moved into a new flat and I’m sure the book would inspire my plans for decorating.

  7. meagan

    I would LOVE to win a copy of Holly’s book because my budget is very very tight at the moment (blogging doesn’t always pay!) so I haven’t been able to buy one just yet.

  22. Shanna

    Ms. Becker has proven time and again that she is one of the best resources for home and lifestyle decor out there. When I had to leave my job in Seattle last summer due to a military re-location with my husband, one of the goals I made for this year (along with travel and becoming a better writer) was to learn as much as I could about design and textiles. I saw a preview of this book online and it looks amazing!

  23. Francine

    I’ve been reading Holly’s blog for a few years now and have heard such great things about her book that I think I really need it for my collection 🙂 The photography alone makes it a must have!

  24. sarah


    I will finally be living on my own (as opposed to living with flatmates) again in the near future, and I can’t friggin wait to make that place my very own by decorating and placing and painting and…aaah, bliss.

  41. Summer

    I think Saarinen sums it up best “Always design a thing by considering it in its next larger context — a chair in a room, a room in a house, a house in an environment, an environment in a city plan.”
    I need Decorate to aid me in my layering efforts!

  42. Elizabeth M

  44. Nine|Tree

    I would lovelovelove to win ‘Decorate’. I love Holly’s work and in about two months from now I will be moving to a beautiful and cozy ‘schipperswoning'(as they call these houses in Dutch) so I could use all great decorate tips for the use of the (relatively small and unnusual)space.

  45. mary boyer

    I’d love a copy of the book! I’ve just moved into a small apartment and needing to edit favored possessions as well as play up what few “assets” of a generic space.

    thanks for the opportunity!

  46. Kate

    I’d love to receive a copy of “Decorate”! As a young professional, I’m living in a tight space, with a tight budget, so I’d love to have a book chock-full of your brilliant ideas 🙂 Have a great day! ~Kate

  47. Elissa

    I am in the middle a major renovation and redecoration of an 1895 Victorian. I need all the help I can get with 6 rooms and 3 bathrooms! I started a blog to chronicle my adventures http://www.fourthaverestoration.com….you’ll see how much I need this book!

  48. Helen Kolenda

  49. joanne andersen

    Congratulations! How wonderful to have a book published! And one that is so full of amazing ideas for the hoarders, collectors of nic-nacs, artwork and books, but sadly with NO idea of how to display them (that’s me).

  50. Sarah

    i’ve seen this book *everywhere* and i’d love to give it a read. my husband and i just moved into a new apartment and i think it would be really helpful in our transition from “bachelor pad” to… “not.” 🙂

  52. decor8 Holly

  53. Kristen

    This book would make my house sing! We just bought a house from hoarders and I’m bringing in simplicity and fresh air – your book would give me the inspiration to get me through another day of renovation. Thanks for the opportunity!

  54. Dariana

    Hi there,

    I would like to win because I just move by myself to a 4 room house. I have no furniture and just started to go to antique thrifty stores and have red eyes from staying on the computer all night loving all the design ideas on the blogs specially Holly’s. So I think it would help me a lot 🙂

  55. Julie Cliff

    I would love to win as the book looks fab and I always welcome a bit of inspiration into my life!

  56. katie hill

    my house is a constant work in progress and holly’s book would be sure to inspire my space! i would love to have it as a reference to use as i continue to adapt my home…

  57. Lala Melanson

    Holly’s book would be an incredible source of inspiration for me and for others who drop by my home for special get~togethers. I live in a house surrounded by trees and feel really lucky to live where I do. My partner and I purchased this house four years ago and it has taken a while to make it feel cozy and with elements of our own style. Holly’s book however would give us the extra incentive to truly push beyond what we believe is “great interior design” to “interior design with much more thought, personality and whimsy”. I love her book and the way she showcases personality and comfort using found objects, intriguing pieces of art with handmade, and truly stunning pieces of furniture. What a wealth of talent and warmth all wrapped up in one book ~ a book which would be forever admired in my space. Thanks for the opportunity. 🙂

  58. dervla Kelly

    Hi, i’d love to win because we’re moving from an apartment to a house and i can finally do what i want with my very own space. Holly has incredible style and i’d love to get some inspiration from the book.

  59. Yulia

    I think it would be wonderful to have a source of inspiration that comes from a book rather than the images on the internet. Also, I am in a middle of redoing my bedroom right now and I could definitely use some help.

  60. Kiki

    I would love to win a copy of Holly’s book because I am extremely indecisive when it comes to decorating my bedroom. I’m currently trying to re-decorate my room and would love to have a design book of my own for advice and inspiration.

  61. Norma

    I would definitely enjoy this book as home decor is right up my alley. There really is no place like home and I love living in a beautiful space. I like inspiring, creative and new ideas, which are sure to be in the book from what I know about having followed decor8 for a long time…I hope I win!

  62. Kelly

    I love to decorate and love all books about decorating and am looking forward to adding this to my collection!

  63. Fenny Setiawan

    I own decorate book and I love every single pages. And if I won I will give this book to my good friend as a precious gift that consist 1000 inspirational design ideas. It would be lovely present to someone dear , right?

  64. Pernille Andersen

    The problem with living in a small European country like Denmark, is that you often can’t get a hold of the good stuff, unless you pay big time. I did try to order the book from Amazon, but the package didn’t make it through to Denmark and after that it was sold out. Problem after problem 🙁
    I’m very interested in design and decor, so I would be using the book a lot. Also – I’m moving to a new place this weekend, so I could use some inspiration!
    Thanks for a great blog 🙂

  65. Annady

  78. helen

    Although I do not have identical style as Holly, but I’ve been reading her blog for years and I really like how she incorporates vintage, handmade and big box store items when putting together a place to call home! That’s why I’d really love to take a peak in her new book!

    Thanks for such a great give-away! Good luck to all!

  79. Johanna

    I’d love to win this book, just to leaf through it during the lazy summer days and then do a fabulous makeover of my flat in the autumn!

  198. Debbie W

    When browsing Decorate in the book store I was taken by what a unique interiors book it is. I’m so looking forward to getting a copy of my own, however, it will be some weeks before I am able. It’s tantalizing to think of owning a copy much earlier.

    Greez from Corrie

  212. nauli
