Book Party: Apartment Therapy Presents...

We're live-blogging the Apartment Therapy Presents: Real Homes, Real People, Hundreds of Design Solutions Book Party! We've got snacks from Murray's Cheese and Rick's Picks with drinks from Blue Ice American Vodka (made from Idaho Russet potatoes) and Clos Du Bois California Riesling. We're expecting to see some familiar faces from our book — this party is a chance for those featured to celebrate with all of the Apartment Therapy Media editors, representatives from our publisher Chronicle Books and members of the press. We'll be updating this post with pictures, video and anecdotes from the party-goers (and I'll be sure to taste a pickle-tini!)...
