News & Notes from Chris

CAH news

I have a few fun things to share with you today, and a couple of them…I’m still pinching my self to make sure it’s real. Let me start by saying that Better Homes & Gardens has been one of my “dream” brands to work with for quite a while. I’ve grown up reading their magazines, their decorating books are like decorating bibles to me, and I think their entertaining aesthetic is much like my own – modern/classic, not overly fussy, and clear photography. A match made in heaven if you ask me!

Recently, I’ve been fortunate enough to get on their radar and have been asked to participate in some exciting opportunities {along with some other amazing bloggers}, which brings me to my first piece of news…

  • In June and July, BHG has been sharing ideas for the Ultimate Summer Bash. Each week 4 bloggers in a particular category are featured and readers vote on a favorite. Can you imagine my excitement when they asked me to participate in the tabletop category?!!  They wanted to showcase my red table setting from our casual dinner party last year. I’m alongside some pretty huge blogs with crazy readership so my chances of winning are slim at best, but as I wrote about competition & success here, I’m already a winner just to be noticed and included by an icon of mine. You can vote for my table here.

  • My next bit of news is also amazing. I’ll be working with BHG  products available at Walmart, as one of their network bloggers. In August I’ll be heading to Des Moines to the Meredith headquarters {BHG parent compan} for a workshop, and to meet 24 other bloggers, BHG experts and editors, etc. I’m not sure who the other bloggers are yet, but I’m so looking forward to the trip, and connecting with everyone!

designer insights

  • Last, but certainly not least, I was recently spotlighted in a Designer Insights article for Terry’s Blinds in the UK. Every week they highlight a few designers and get their perspective on trends, work process, background, and more. It’s a quick and fun read, and you can see it all here.

Thanks for all your support and lets all continue the power of positive thinking and visualization. Have a great day!
