174 Book Giveaway + Blog Tour: Decorate Workshop


Decor8's Holly Becker's new book, Decorate Workshop, A Creative 8 Step Process for Transforming Your Home recently launched and today I'm thrilled to be kicking off the online book tour teaming up with Chronicle Books and a book (signed by Holly) giveaway! In her second book, Holly shares design secrets and offers up an eight step process/workshop to help transform a home that reflects your style.  I already am looking forward to diving into my copy to help me with my living and dining room purchases coming up in the new year!  The process Holly has come up with is really practical and is a brilliant way to approaching your space. Sometimes you just need a little help - like me, I love so many styles and because of it I'm a bit of a commitment phobe when it comes to decorating, but Holly's book offers up some great suggestions to pointing one in a specific direction.

We also have an interview with Holly where she took some time to answer a few questions about her new book (coming later in another post - so stay tuned). In the meantime, a few sneak peek pictures to wet your appetite and info below on how to enter to win a copy of the book, follow the tour and where to buy a copy!
