Marrakech: the universe and a tale of so nice media mentions

Dear friends,

It has been a bad, sad, and not-so-good couple of weeks. Let's just say that I've had disappointments.  {The kind that totally threw me for a loop and took my breath away.} 

But you know how when things go wrong, the universe intervenes and tries to make things right? 

Because in addition to the bad, sad and not-so-good news, I have had the good, very good and even-a-little-bit-great news.  Speaking of which, a few media shout outs in my world... 

There were three (!) very kind media mentions due to the uber-talented Stephanie Von Watzdorf of global chic brand, Figue.  Stephanie is a favorite friend and client.  I couldn't be more excited about her new store in Soho!  I shrieked when I saw my name mentioned in yesterday's Women's Wear Daily as the contributing interior designer for the Figue store's look and feel. (And yes, those are copies of my book, Marrakesh by Design on the shelf!)

I am also so happy to see Peacock Pavilions in the September issue of Zink Magazine!  And even closer to my heart is the mention of my little non-profit association, Project Soar, that benefits girls between the ages of 6-12 in my Moroccan village.  Many thanks to adorable writer, Ariane Marder and photographer Christine Johnson!

Also, it's ridiculously thrilling to see my shop, Red Thread Souk, as well as Peacock Pavilions mentioned in the September Harper's Bazaar (pinch me!)!

Finally, loved seeing this super nice review of Peacock Pavilions in The Independent!  Thank you, thank you Sarah Gilbert!


{And thank you, universe.  You always know how to pick me up when I'm feeling down.  I won't soon forget the lessons you send my way -- bad, good, and somewhere in between.}
