I'm back from my trip and am completely jet lagged...and a bit sunburned too. I'm far too tired to post, but there is something that I want to share with you. For some silly reason I've been a little shy about discussing it with you. Last Spring I took a few weeks off from the blog to write and edit House Beautiful Fabrics for Your Home: 340 Designer Favorites. The book is a compilation of the magazine's Instant Room columns plus numerous photos featuring creative and striking uses of fabric. It's the kind of book that you'll want to throw in your bag when you hit the design center or fabric store. Think of it as "everything you wanted to know about fabric but were afraid to ask."
I'm also going to participate in Washington Post writer Jura Koncius' popular online discussion Home Front tomorrow at 11am. I invite you to join in the live conversation about all things design.
