Design Questions & Answers Book and Giveaway

I remember the day that we moved into our little cottage...  I walked in the door and just stood in the living room and looked at everything.







Of course, there was all that work that stared back at me... but I also remember scratching my head with the simplest of things.


Like how to  configure the living room/dining room/entry/family room... to be all of those rooms and WHILE it had a center fireplace on the long wall. 




To be honest, it isn't perfect even now- and back in the day standing in that big empty room full of possibilities - I asked myself a ton of questions trying to figure it all out. Some of which was were where do I put the seating arrangement and what kind of coffee table works best?




I could have really used some advice from my friends Melissa and KariAnne- and if you are like me- you will love that they just wrote a new book- and it is all about answering those questions.  Over 100 of them actually.
Like how to choose white paint.
What type of rug should I get.
How do I get everything organized easily.
And Where do I put the couch?





This book is full of questions and answers- and lots of fun little stories and tidbits. It is a must have and I love that it is full of their hearts and charm and it is like having a conversation with a friend about a design question.




And they are also doing a huge giveaway to celebrate this new book!

  9. Thank you for writing your blog. I have your book and really enjoy looking thru it over and over. I like several colors and worry about going from one room color into another. I wish I could commit to just one but the dishes I collect range from red to blue to aqua. Any ideas what to do?

  10. I can't wait to read this book! My husband and I are downsizing and minimalizing, but I still want a cozy, comfy, welcoming home. Our new place is small, so I want to know about the size of furniture, and how to keep things open without seeming bare.
