My New Favorite Book

The Domino book. I know what you're saying..."old news Holly!"
But it's really great and it's on my nightstand because I try to read a little bit each night.
Do you have the book? What do you think?

I went ahead and bought it on my own because I couldn't wait for Christmas, but if you don't feel like shelling out money for it now - put it on your holiday list! You will enjoy it - AND it's the perfect piece to use for styling a bookshelf or side table because it's so darn pretty.

And, the big news...class was awesome!! I learned a ton in a short amount of time, and I have homework that I'm really excited about. I'm still registering all of the information, so I'll save more of the details for a separate post. But one thing I will be doing this weekend is purchasing a big girl tape measure because the one that we have just isn't cutting it anymore and the instructor talked about taking measurements confidently when you're in a client home which I thought was a great tip.

AND one more thing...our final project for this class is putting together a design board, which reminded me I need to put the finishing touches on one that I'm working on for Mood Board Monday. Remember to finish up your wallpaper inspired design boards and join in the Mood Board Monday party hosted by Sarah from Pewter & Sage  and Cathy from Room RX which will be back in session Monday, September 26th. I'm really excited to see what everyone has come up with!

 I haven't embraced wallpaper in our home since we had to strip our entire house of it three years ago, but I'm slowly warming up to it and I think I found a creative way to use it in my design board. Have you embraced wallpaper in your home?


  1. Holly so glad to find you!! I have not read the Domino book, can you believe it!! I must pick it up, because I do the same thing with my design books, open them for inspiration!

  2. I see the Domino book in tons of rooms, but don't have it myself. Looks like I might have to pick one up! I'm so glad your classes are going well. I'm excited to hear more about it! As for wallpaper, I used to hate it, but I'm started to like it lately, as long as the pattern isn't "too much."

  3. The domino book is awesome! I keep it at my desk and frequently look through it for inspiration, definitely one of my favorites.

    So happy to hear you're enjoying your classes.

  4. I LOVE that book! I refer to it all the time ... definitely worth the money.

  5. Going to have to go and find that book for sure! I love wallpaper as long as it is done well!

  6. Thanks for the "Mood Board Monday" shout out Holly! Good for you that your class is inspiring, look forward to hearing more about it!
    It's good to have a library of books for go to inspiration, that's one I may have to add to mine!


  7. I do love this book and refer to it often. Lots of great info inside ;)

  8. I love that book. I don't own it, but I've borrowed it from the library about half a dozen times.
