What: Seattle Design Evenings Who: Book Signing with Grace Bonney of Design*Sponge When: Sept 29, 2011 - 5:30-7:30pm Where: Suite 410 for drinks (5:30-6:15) Anthropologie for book signing (6:30pm) Members: 73 Organizer: Manuela Hess If you haven't heard, Grace Bonney (of Design*Sponge fame) will be at the downtown Anthropologie store for a craft event and book signing of her new book, DESIGN*SPONGE AT HOME, on Thursday, Sept. 29th. The craft event filled up just minutes after it was open to RSVPs, but the book signing and celebration for Design*Sponge At Home at the downtown Anthropologie store is open to us all.
We'll gather at Suite 410 (410 Stewart St., Seattle) for a beverage from 5:30 - 6:15pm. *Look for our ApartmentTherapy sign.* (We'll set aside a little time for people to ask the group about current design dilemmas and share before/afters.) We'll then head out around 6:15pm for Anthropologie (1509 5th Avenue, Seattle), aiming to arrive there by 6:30pm. We're excited and hope you can join us! (Note: Outside of NYC, all of our Apartment Therapy Design Evenings are volunteer based and aimed at helping people by connecting them with great design and great local resources. Find out more and join us here.)
When Grace Bonney founded Design*Sponge in 2004, her goal was to show that great design doesn't require a high price tag or a professional degree. Seven years and millions of page-views later, Design*Sponge is the most influential design blog in the world. And now Design*Sponge is coming to a different kind of page with Grace Bonney's first book, DESIGN*SPONGE AT HOME. More than a collection of DIY ideas, DESIGN*SPONGE AT HOME is a step-by-step guide that gives you the practical skills to craft your dream living space. Grace doesn't want people just to admire design - she wants them to bring it home and make it their own. Packed with hundreds of projects, the book is organized into 5 main sections to make it as functional and user-friendly as it is beautiful. In each section, Grace--whose enthusiasm and joy in her subject is infectious--teaches the reader the principles of decorating and collecting, empowering them to make beautiful homes.
