tis the season. the holidays are upon us, a time to celebrate love, family, joy, friends, our faith and giving.

i’m always looking for great gifts to give- aren’t you? how about a book? even better, how about a beautiful book? well, i have good one for you, my new book beautiful; all-american decorating and timeless style. everyone loves beauty, and i’ve never met anyone who doesn’t love inspiring and beautiful interiors. this book has all of that and it also has a beautiful story.

if having a good gift idea is not enough…. i will also sign the book, we will wrap the book for you in my schumacher montecito medallion one kings lane holiday wrapping paper, then we will send the book for you as a gift.

as we all know giving is better that receiving. we will be donating a portion of the sales of the beautiful book to the spca. our french bulldog is the center of our world, and we want to help as many dogs as possible. loving, giving and helping others is truly what makes life beautiful.

oder your beautiful book gifts here! #giveBEAUTIFUL and #GIVEback

i don’t know if you have noticed but every monday for the last eight weeks i’ve been highlighting a chapter, a theme or color story from my new book, new york times best seller, beautiful: all-american decorating and timeless style….this week it’s all about red.

chapter 8 is called “red my way”, and it’s exactly that, it’s all about the way i like red. i like red to be glamorous and daring, i like it mixed with robin’s egg blue, or any color of blue for that matter.

i love a red valentino dress, an important piece of red abstract art, and pierre frey’s braquenie tree of life fabric in red is my forever favorite fabric. i love a red check, a potted red amaryllis, and a red bow.

i can’t believe the holidays are already upon us, and we all know red is the color of the season. so as we celebrate joy, love and giving this season, we have to also celebrate red, especially when it’s red my way. happy holidays!!!
