Happy Spring Break & Some Good News for Friends!!

Hello!!! We're off this week for Spring Break and I might literally have to duck tape my laptop shut so I don't work.  ;)  But that's the goal. 

I also just wanted to share some awesome things going on with a couple of bloggy friends:

Brooke & Steve Giannetti's {insanely beautiful} Home is being featured on the cover (and of course inside too! ;) of the May isse of Romantic Home Magazine!!  I am crazy over everything they touch and of course theirs is a perfect dream house:

And Kayce Huges's {fun &fresh & gorgeous}home is featured in this month's Country Living!!:

Kayce just recently became a sponsor of Pure Style Home & I am so happy she did!  I'm constantly drooling over a particular dress she designed at her store Pears + Bears.  (I wont' tell you which one because I don't want it to sell out!! ;) ;)   Her company, Pears + Bears also makes beautiful children's clothing.  How freaking adorable?!!!:

Oh if I ever get a girl....

And finally, Eddie Ross is making a pilot for a TV show!!!!  He's looking for a room to makeover for the pilot episode and is accepting submissions!!  Just click here for details.  I am soooo  excited for Eddie!! He can do it all {perfect tables- interior design- styling- photography- craft projects- budget- high-end- etc.} & with his sense of humor & charisma I KNOW he's going to succeed!! yay!!

Ok, so I am pretty much OFF-  no I'm OFF-  for the week but we will be having another super-duper guest blogger before & after!!  Have an awesome week & a Happy Easter if I'm not on before then.!!
ps- I wanted to thank everyone soooo much for the awesome response to my last post on roman shades.  I appreciate each & every one of your emails & comments.  Many of them contained questions about specific window situations & I wish I could answer all of them, but I hope you can understand the time it would take for me to give good, specific advice for each situation.  Right now I'm pretty overloaded with home life, clients & blog & I really hope you can understand that I'm just not able to do this right now.  I offer e-decorating services (you can click on the link at the top right of the blog)  if you're interested in specific advice for your home.  I will work on getting a price on the e-decorating page for general window treatment queries/ advice.  Again, I hope you can understand and thank you for your response!!
(again ;)

I hope you have a wonderful week off. Good news for all three of the bloggers mentioned and all very deserving.

Great news for some talented people :)

Enjoy your time off! And bravo for handling all of your email inquiries via e-decorating. This is a tremendous resource for people who want to tap into your style. And besides, no way should putting yourself out there in blogland translate to free design advice via email. I think most of us appreciate any and all advice that comes our way via your posts! We want you to save time for those ;)

Enjoy your family! Marija

Have a great spring break and congrats on turning off for family time. Also, kudos for referring people to your e-decorating services. My blog and business is so new and it really amazes me the emails I already get wanting free advice, help finding items, etc. It is hard to help everyone, run a business and take care of family....I cannot even imagine the volume you must get!
Best, Susie

Enjoy some time off! I just returned from a vacation where internet access cost me 40 cents a minute, so no duck tape was required. Good luck with keeping that computer closed! Janell

I have been a fan of your home for over a year. I am sure you deserve this week off! Your last post on roman shades was informative! Thanks for specifics! By the way, I just launched a blog today. I know we are popping up all over, but you all who have been doing this for quite a while can take credit. You inspired us! I wonder how to get my blog posted or read. I would welcome any advice. I am sure you had to start somewhere. I only hope I can part way meet your standards! Here is my URL:
