Entry envy…

I recently had the pleasure to attend the book-signing event of Grace Bonney’s book, Design*Sponge at Home at the Anthropologie in Beverly Hills. Purposely waited until the day of to purchase the much-anticipated book after I heard Anthropologie did an exclusive edition with Grace – 16 extra pages on top of the 400! already. I finally had a moment to sit down and really look through the book. And let me tell you, I’ve got a serious case of entry envy…

case no. 1: home of Traci and Bill Fleming / Los Angeles, California. First off, great color combo. But I’m particularly interested in the planter, believe it or not! The pattern/design of it is fab, especially love how it’s balanced with the yellow on the bottom.

case no. 2: home of Carol Neiley / Lyon, France. This really brings back memory for me – a constant visual during my recent European holiday. There’s just something about their streets and their apartment entrances. This antique wooden door is just part of the charm. C’est si bon, no?

case no. 3: home of Genifer Goodman Sohr / Nashville, Tennessee. A log cabin, with a red door, AND Bodoni house numbers – you had me at hello.

If you want to learn more about this book, head on over to Design*Sponge, particularly this post, “The Evolution of a Book Cover” documenting the cover design. Really great insight behind the creative process.
