Y’all. I never do this but I do love a contest and If you’ve ever met me in person you know that I LOVE giving out free solicited advice. When asked, I will dig in, insert myself like it’s my life and my house and really try to solve your problem. The book is coming out in a few weeks and we are so excited (and yes, getting super nervous) to have it out there in the world. I REALLY hope you like it. Sometimes I think I just wrote this book for me because I needed it, and I’m honestly too close to it to have an objective point of view. It’s called The New Design Rules and its a guide to renovating and decorating from start to finish (based on my learnings, experiences and perspective). I really, really hope you like it. So to thank one of you for pre-ordering we figured we’d do a giveaway contest for a free 1 hour (or more – I can really gab) consultation. 🙂 Here’s how it works: If you pre-order the book (THANK YOU) send us a photo or screenshot of the receipt by emailing to email@example.com, you’ll be entered to win a FREE one hour consultation with me. We can discuss (almost) ANYTHING in the design or business realm. Have a design agony that you just can’t figure out? I got you. Want me to look over your kitchen plans and just say yay or nay to your tile? No problem. Or maybe you want to start a blog or get into the design business and just want to pick my brain? GREAT. I have so much to say and HAPPY to get into it with you. And don’t worry – I’ll prep for it, so if you send me your design conundrums and questions with photos/floorplans, mood boards, etc. before hand you’ll get some tangible thought through advice. It will be fun, I promise! I’ve done these for school and charity fundraisers and it’s a blast, actually. I don’t sell consultations as part of a service at all, nor am I with The Expert right now because I have zero hours left in the week. But on special occasions it’s actually so fun to just connect and talk design with a reader.
You have now until Thursday May 5th to pre-order the book online and send through the receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org. Then we’ll draw one of you and email to set up the consultation (Announced May 8th with the consultation late May, early June). And yes, you can order 3 books and enter 3 times (or more!) OR if you have a friend/daughter or sister who is a big reader and you don’t need the consultation, then you could give your consultation away as a gift to them. Or maybe your sisters want the book but don’t need a design consultation – just bug them to buy and have them email their proof of purchase through and they can transfer the prize to YOU. AND if you already pre-ordered a book OF COURSE you can enter! You would have had to buy online so just find proof of purchase and send it through. Obviously no returning it or canceling 🙂
And if you are in the Portland or New York area stay tuned for book signings at Rejuvenation – (the week of May 9th in New York, and the week of May 26th in Portland).
Thank you all for pre-ordering, seriously. It means so so so so so much to me. Thank you 🙂
