Saturday Morning Inspiration with Holly Becker of Decor8

This past Saturday I was one of the lucky dozens who had the opportunity to meet Holly Becker at Anthrolpogie in Boston. Holly is the founder of the widely popular blog Decor8 and the author of the best selling book Decorate. She currently lives in Germany and is on a US book tour and chose Boston as her first stop. Holly lived in Boston for 20 years and told us she considers Boston her home and wanted to start her tour here. It was such a treat to meet her as I have been reading her blog for years and following her in the virtual world. Holly is just as authentic as her blog and could not have been more gracious. Those of us that registered early had the added treat of a wonderful breakfast with Mimosas (thanks  Anthropologie)  as well as a presentation by Holly on creating a Mood board.

Yummy breakfast!


Don’t you just love those plates?

Holly shared some great tips, my favorite being; use a small photo album to store all your room elements  such as color samples, fabric swatches and measurements. Keep this in your purse and then when you are out and see something that might work you’ll have all your samples and measurements to refer to. Here is Holly showing off her own mini sample book.

Of course the big treat of the day was getting my book signed. The signing was open to the public and poor Holly must have signed a thousand books. The line was never ending but it just goes to show you how many Boston fans love her, her blog and her book.

I know I look a little like a crazy stalker in this picture but I am not so comfortable being on the other side of the camera. Good luck on your next stop Holly!

    Very cool! Her site is amazing. How is her book? What a simple but great idea with the photo book! Wouldnt that be a great gift to give clients?
