I've been busy at Blogfest 2012 for the past few days (so amazing!) and will have some fantastic posts detailing all the events later this week, but I wanted to share some exciting news with you today. I'm writing a weekly column for one of my favorite reads, Hamptons Magazine online and my first article Ten Essentials For A Gorgeous Guest Room is out today. With Memorial Day weekend nearly here, it's the perfect time to get your guest room looking its stylish, summer best. I hope you'll follow the column and be inspired!

WOW! That is huge, Barbara....congrats to you. They knew a good thing when they see it! For me, really beautiful comfy soft bedding, a vase of fresh flowers in the bathroom and on the nightstand, a tray wtih pretty glasses and water bottle, some intersting reading material curtailed to the guests interest and that days newspaper are all standard things for me to do, makes them feel special!
Can't wait to see what you have come up with.
