Happy Tuesday, chic readers! We are so excited to share this week’s installment of Blank to Beautiful with all of you. Our good friend–and one of our favorite authors–Mary Kay Andrews is here today chatting about her new Instant New York Times Bestseller, Hello, Summer, (Which I couldn’t put down… I think it’s her best book yet!) the design aesthetic has inspired several of her novels and our fantastic new Wednesday night live collaboration with our friends Mary Alice Monroe, Kristin Harmel and Patti Callahan Henry, Friends & Fiction. You’ll want to hang on to every word Mary Kay says!
Check out some of our favorite summertime design photos too!
The amazing, adorable and oh-so-smart Amy from Amy Believes in Pink was SO kind to have me on her fabulous blog as a part of her “Female-Founded Business” Series! We talked about design style, Design Chic, Feels Like Falling, and so much more! Check out our fun interview and keep up with her on her site or over on Instagram!
Happy Tuesday, chic readers! We hope you had the most amazing Memorial Day Weekend and got some time off to celebrate with family and friends–even if it was via Zoom! I can’t even begin to tell you how much I enjoyed this incredibly fun interview with architect extraordinaire Ken Tate and his son–author and sales and marketing manager Duke Tate.
This dynamic father-son duo is overflowing with talent. Listen in as I chat with them about what it’s like to work together in a family business, what project Ken still has on his wishlist and get insight into one of the most fascinating creative processes I’ve ever heard–that actually inspired some of the storytelling in Ken and Duke’s latest collaboration, The Alchemy of Architecture. Check out more of Ken’s breathtaking work below.
For more Ken Tate on your coffee table, don’t miss out on his too-gorgeous-for-words book collection.
Check back next Tuesday when I’ll be talking with New York Times bestselling author Mary Kay Andrews not only about her incredible novels but also about the design style that has inspired more than one story!
