Hello Hello Hello! Unless you’ve just discovered by blog like 20 seconds ago, you know that I have a book coming out next week! The New Bohemians is my first decorating book and, after TWO YEARS of working on this thing, I wanted to kick it off with a real big BANG! One Kings Lane and I are co-hosting the book launch party here in LA on April 14th–the day the book comes out. Since I wanted it to be a swanky to-do, we’re having it at a beautiful old hotel and it will be catered by Urban Palate. But, the flip side to ye-old swankiness is that in order to fit everything into ye old budget, we have a seriously limited headcount that we have to adhere to. Figuring all this out gave my mini panic attacks akin to those had during wedding prep. And then a few people on IG suggested doing a giveaway so that more folks come and celebrate with us and I thought it was a great idea and good way to include more people. So here’s the deal. Two people will win 2 invites to the fiesta and a signed copy of the book. Yay.
I’ll get to giveaway details shortly but I’d also like to inform you that we have several other events scheduled that are open to the public where we can all party together and take selfies and spill champagne all over the books and stuff. And hopefully we’ll be adding more events, book signings and parties to the roster as well. But for now, here’s what’s happening:
Yeah! Popup: Book Signing and Face The Foliage Workshop
I will be at the Hudson Loft in Downtown Los Angeles on Saturday April 18th from 11am-2pm. I’ll be signing books, talking too much about design, art and creativity and sharing some #FaceTheFoliage fun. The event is free but you have to RSVP. (Also check the roster because there’s a lot of cool stuff happening over there…)
Crafting Community, Palm Springs
May 1st-3rd I’ll be in Palm Springs at the Ace Hotel with my family and Crafting Community! I will be partying, hosting a couple of workshops and signed copies of the book will be on sale at the popup.
LEGENDS Celebrates Design Authors:
Friday, May 8, 4-5:30 pm, I’ll be at Mecox, 919 N. La Cienega Blvd. Here are the details for that event: Design icon Charlotte Moss from New York joins L.A.-based art critic journalist and publisher Anthony Iannacci, author of Design in the Hamptons, and designer Justina Blakeney, who recently authored The New Bohemians: Cool and Collected Homes, at a group book signing at Mecox.
GIVEAWAY RULES: OK now back to the giveaway. Here’s what to do. Pick your favorite piece (besides the book, duh!) from my sale on One Kings Lane. Come back here and leave a comment saying which item you fancy. For extra entries, share #TheNewBohoBook on social and leave the link to the post in the comments. That’s it.
