A Gift For You

The good folks at Hearst sent me a very nice book that I want you to have. Just let me know that you want it.  It would be a nice gift, or a nice addition to your design book library.

Designer Randy Florke--who has been featured in Country Living, the New York Times, People magazine, and on the Today show--showcases his warm, homey, and sustainable heartland sensibility

Florke explores his "three muses" of design--comfort, economy, and color--and presents real-life examples of rooms that radiate charm.

Economy means items chosen from flea markets, thrift stores, or grandmother's attic.

Anyone hoping to transform a home from ordinary to extraordinary will find thrifty and stylish ways to design, plus a numerous "Quick Fix" sections with cheap, fast solutions to common problems.

Just let me know you want it, and I'll pay the postage.
