September domino!

Ok so lately I feel like a total Brag-geddy Anne, which is just GROSS, so I'm gonna make this quick but I did want to share my enthusiasm and appreciation for the Rubie Green coverage in the newest September issue of domino! And by the way, the issue is G O R G E O U S! It's almost too much goodness to take in one sitting.

I was also thrilled to see my old boss, Tori Mellott in the issue! I've honestly never met anybody with a more innate sense of style, so it's been fun to learn from her and to watch her tastes evolve over the years. Her current West Village apartment is the epitome of chic :)

It's fun to look at one of her previous apartments, featured below in the May 2006 issue of domino, to see where all her furniture, quirky finds and one-of-a-kind art has been placed in her new space! I'm in love with the bust and the Asian fish print, which are now both on the gallery wall above her sofa in her current apartment.

I'm also a firm believer that great style has absolutely nothing to do with cost, so this photo of Tori's Ikea Expedit bookcase (yes folks, it really is Ikea!) always makes me smile. It's a solid example of how a little imagination can turn even the most inexpensive piece of furniture into a stylish focal point of a room.

And there you have it. Thanks again domino :)

You don't come across to your readers as "brag-geddy" at all. Honestly.

I think it's actually really good for you to
(a) be excited about your success and
(b) be a little self-promotional

You built a business to have it succeed, right? Your story is inspiring and it's fun to live vicariously through you, so please continue to keep us posted.
