Casting Call


I am working on a few projects and I need some help:

1) Do you have (or know of) a Seattle-based home, design, gardening, or otherwise fabulous personal blog? If so, please email or leave a comment with a link.

2) Are you a budding interior designer or shop owner and want people to know about you and your fabulous work? If so, please email me with photos and information.

3) Do you make or manufacture a cool product and want help finding distribution? Maybe you make letterpress cards, have a cool lighting line, produce soy candles that cure cancer, make hand-stamped organic cotton fabric... anything you think Decorno people might love. I would love to hear about it and help you get your product in front of small retailers.

4) I am looking for guest bloggers on these topics:
- Landscaping & Garden
- Ask a Designer (would like a small stable of established designers to help with design questions)

I have to recommend the blog of my sweet and talented friend Blair: "wise craft" (www.blairpeter.typepad.com)

I would be honoured if you'd like to send any design-related questions my way. Your blog is part of my daily sustenance.

i wanna be a guest designer! please?!! pretty please?? though since i didn't get that damn domino promo email, maybe i'm not cool enough (yes, i'm still smarting over the slight).

warning though- i am habitually late, so i'm not so good at meeting deadlines...

Cote and Lament have their own blogs and we already get their plentiful design opinions on a daily basis.

For design advice, I nominate Neece. I like her home and its originality.

erika - urban grace interiors said...

sweet courtney nominated me and while I'm no cote de texas nor aesthete's lament (both design geniuses and walking encyclopedias) i'd be honored.

Love urban grace, too.
Cote de texas has a wealth of knowledge.
I have been busy illustrating homes and mementos for clients-
Also love illustrating decor.

I'll second the motion to nominate Erika from Urban Grace. I'm not a real designer, just a pretend one, but I do know that our dogs are having a long distance love affair and that should be enough.

As a personal friend of Erika's, I can tell you that she's a design authority. As a fellow designer, I can say her work is distinctive and cutting edge and always reveals a perfect blend of classic lines and sophistication. She's your girl.

Just look at the kitchen she designed that I posted on my site on March 21. Spectacular.

I just started reading your blog, and I love it! I grew up in Seattle and I wrote for a local design magazine there, but I have recently moved to Texas with my husband. I started a blog a month ago if you want to take a peek at it-- http://iaspire-theenrighthouse.blogspot.com/

I'm very new to blogging though! I still freelance for the mag back in Seattle and I have had lots of experience with local retailers/designers/the design center...if that helps. Keep up your hilarious and stylish posts!
