meeting ms. bonney.

When I heard that Design*Sponge founder Grace Bonney was coming to Charleston to promote her new book, I immediately requested an interview and a review copy. Design*Sponge at Home is being touted as the Bible for design aficionados, and it's chock full of home tours, DIY projects, and before-and-afters. I rarely buy books, preferring to check them out at the library instead, but this one definitely deserves a place on your shelf.

I interviewed Grace today and she was as smart and sweet as I imagined. We chatted about her favorite and least favorite design trends (don't put a bird on it!), the possibility of a TV show and more newspapers, and her intense love of the South. I'll be sure to link to my story when it comes out next week. Until then, pick up a copy of the book and plan to attend the signing at Dwelling on Oct. 26.


  1. I am so jealous you got to chat with Grace Bonney! Design*Sponge was the first blog I ever read. I can't wait to read your article!

  2. I think I will order immediately from amazon. I've become a bit of an junkie. They have EVERYTHING! June
