IT WON AN AWARD.
And not just any award.
A kind-of-a-big-deal award.
A PLATINUM award for print media publication.
It’s a Hermes Award which is kind of like the Academy Awards of print media.
And to celebrate?
Are you ready?
Are you sitting down?
Jeffrey Court and I want to send you one of these books for FREE.
Kind of like an early Christmas present.
All wrapped up just for you.
Here’s the cover of the book.
It’s 32 pages of beautiful four-color photography and fun tips.
And rooms that I’ve worked on.
Like this bathroom.
It has tiny penny tile and beautiful subway tile.
And brass fixtures with pops of color.
It’s all me.
And my house.
And my favorite tiles.
And inspiration boards for projects for every type of design style.
32 amazing, incredible, awesome pages full of beautiful color photographs and design boards and inspiration that we photographed right here at the new Thistlewood.
Jeffrey Court and I put this together for anyone who’s ever looked at tile and hoped and dreamed and wanted to create a new space and a new look—but didn’t know where to start.
It’s like I wrote in the introduction to this book:
I once spent an entire weekend styling my dollhouse. I cut out pieces of bright, vividly colored wallpaper and taped it to the walls. I made furniture out of twigs and snipped pictures out of magazines, framing them with ribbon. I filled the tiny dollhouse kitchen with salt-dough food, added rugs made out of woven construction paper and cut tiny white tiles out of typing paper. I spent hours gluing them into a mosaic on the bathroom floor.
And when I was done?
Somehow all of those tiny pieces of paper and salt-dough and ribbon transformed themselves into something amazing.
That’s the thing about decorating. Step-by-step, piece-by-piece, room-by-room—it transforms a house into a home.
But in truth?
Sometimes decorating can be a little challenging. The entire process can be a little overwhelming. We look at our bathroom or our kitchen and ask ourselves: Where do I begin? How do I get started?
That’s exactly why we put together this lookbook.
To give you a start.
To give you inspiration.
No matter your style or where you are on the journey—there’s a project for you.
I put together inspiration boards like this one.
And then we transformed them into projects like this one.
It’s the hutch in my kitchen with a new look from simple pieces of tile.
All these projects.
All this inspiration.
Who knew that it would WIN AN AWARD.
But here’s the best part of the award-winning story. None of this would have been possible without you—lifting me up and celebrating and encouraging me all along the way.
So to thank you, we want to give you the lookbook for FREE.
All for you.

PS Here’s a throwback pic of when we released the Lookbook at Haven in the Jeffrey Court booth. There was standing room only and we had a giant countdown to release it and I may or may not have danced around with it holding over my head.
I think that looks like an award winner.
Don’t you? 🙂
