It’s no secret. We love Design*Sponge (who doesn’t?). We look to them for great decorating ideas. We get stoked when our friends are featured. They just simply rock. So last night we happily braved rush hour traffic to attend the Design*Sponge book signing at Anthropologie in Beverly Hills. The immaculately dressed and ever-so-lovely Grace Bonney was on hand to sign her latest book, Design*Sponge at Home, which is basically a drool-inducing anthology of the projects and personalities that have been featured on the site over the years.
Upon leafing through the book (and enjoying every last one of the 16 extra eye-popping pages), we just can’t help but wonder what it’s like to live, like REALLY live, in some of these spaces. Clearly the photography is amazing. The styling, impeccable. But what do these homes look like, say, on a random Tuesday? Does good interior design transcend drooling dogs, crayon-wielding toddlers, messy husbands, and raucous Friday night dinners? Is it possible to live with such style without a stylist? Either way, we suddenly feel the urge to redecorate.
