Live Beautiful basking in the morning sun! I realized I haven’t shared much about the overall concept of the book. My initial goal was to create a coffee table book with arresting photography that documented the personal homes of designers. Abrams wanted an actionable book that offered the reader a take away, something to learn. Thankfully we found the perfect middle ground. Being the curious creature that I am, I always want to dissect and understand the smaller, seemingly insignificant choices that accumulate along the creative journey — the alchemy of how beautiful design comes together. I do feel I have successfully struck the balance in creating an elevated design book while distilling actionable tips for the reader. I am fortunate to call @amyastley a friend and beyond grateful for her thoughtful words taken from the forward — they truly encompass what #livebeautiful is about — “Athena unpacks the personal style and clever solutions behind each space. The accompanying text, in her clear and instructional, yet warmly affirmational voice, offers up practical suggestions for anyone eager to re-imagine their own environment.” THANK YOU AMY. I can’t wait to share this book with you all! March 3rd is the pub date but you can preorder now!

Hello dear friends! Today I’m so thrilled to officially reveal the cover for my next book, London in Bloom! We’ve been shooting styled content today for the launch on March 17 and I just didn’t want to wait any longer to show you (I sneaked a peek recently in stories). Sharp eyes have noticed that this image was taken at the beautiful @peggyporschenofficial Belgravia location and I couldn’t be happier that my publisher chose it for the cover. The book is already available for preorder worldwide (see stockists at the link in my profile) and as I’ve mentioned before, preorders are increasing valuable to a successful book launch. If you do preorder, hang on to your receipt as soon I’ll announce the preorder gifts – they are off the chart this time! Take a look at the link in my profile for a peek into the interior pages, too! And I just want to say thank you to all of you all over the globe who have my books. I create them for YOU, to take you along with me to discover the wondrous beauty I find on my travels. More Paris always @aparisianmoment

So thrilled that my other baby, the book that I worked on for six years (Seriously!), is finally available for pre-order on Amazon. I’m so proud of this project. The book is filled with anecdotal histories of all the objects that make our house, a home. So I’ve written about the history of the sofa and the duvet cover and the fork…. and more! The project was beautifully illustrated by @alicepattullo Right now, everything is off to the printers! Preorders are so important for authors and book sales (It’s often how retailers decide how much to order). So if it’s something you’re interested in, don’t wait until March (particularly if you have mommy brain, like I do!), preorder and it will be sent to you hot off the presses! 💕 (Link in profile)
