New Book ~ Downtown Chic

Well, it's Friday already...this week just went by in a blurr for me. How about YOU? Was it a good one, a challenging one, an interesting one? I hope your weekend's even better and that you're able to relax, have fun, and get refreshed before the new week.

One of the fun parts about being a blogger is the opportunities that arise because of it. A few weeks ago I received a beautiful book in the mail (free of charge) to review and post about on Simply Hue. The book is called Downtown Chic, and as you can see in the photos above, it's filled with gorgeous COLORFUL images and tips on such topics as:

~ Buying the ultimate fixer-upper
~ Creating a plan before you renovate
~ Decorating with flea market and boutique finds
~ Ideas for how to use vintage artifacts to bring character to your home
~ Creating kids' rooms that appeal to kids' and adults

The authors, Robert and Courtney Novogratz, write from their own personal experience, having successfully and creatively renovated several homes themselves. This book is inspiring and even humorous at times, offering real-world "from the trenches" advice on how to create stylish and family friendly homes. To see more of the couples innovative projects you can visit their website, Sixx Design.

Have a wonderful weekend, friends!!! xo
