Happy Weekend

"Grace Bonney started a revolution. Now the revolution has a bible." And I got a hold of it! Now I am obsessed. Ladies, this is seriously good stuff. 400+ pages of inspiration. I am going through it 3-5 pages a day-- instant 'pick-me-upper' guaranteed! 

One night while browsing the home tours aka sneak peeks, I told the Mr. that my heart's aflutter seeing spaces that are so gorgeous and yet attainable! (He just rolled his eyes, of course.) 

Oh and I can't wait to get to the DIY portion! Though I am still conditioning myself to get into the right state of mind and actually try the DIYs that are coming my way. 

This, truly is a bible for the design-hungry mind and we're not even talking about professionally-designed, high-priced interiors here. Which for me, is the best part of it all. 

As Jonathan Adler quipped in the foreword, ".. design is about inspiration, not snobbism. It's about empowerment, self-expression, and pluck." Amen to that.

Have a design-filled weekend lovelies. It's another long weekend in our neck of the woods and we couldn't be more pleased!

P.S. Get a copy from National Bookstore or Powerbooks near you!
