Associated Press, Calypso Home + MA Belle!

A couple months ago I was asked to participate in an interview with the Associated Press for a blogger series they're creating for their lifestyles department! The goal was to meet home design bloggers and figure out what they look for when shopping for their own homes. I was asked to select a favorite interiors store in the city, (which was so hard- I love so many!) so we contacted Calypso Home and they were thrilled to be on board. Although I'm terrible on camera, I'm incredibly flattered to be a part of this series and excited to show you why I love Calypso Home! Please excuse my dorkiness and note that I smile a lot more often in real life ;)

You were wonderful! What a fantastic opportunity. I have to ask, where are those ikat pillows from? I couldn't take my eyes off of them. I didn't seem them on Calypso Home's website. Anyone know?

Too Cute!! You did such an amazing job, like second nature! I can't wait to move back to NY so I can hijack your advice before it costs an arm and a leg!

Keep going kiddo!
