"It would seem that my new book Undecorate has generated some buzz and controversy. I wrote the book in response to a sweeping trend I see.... The openness of the Internet and social media, the landslide of information, the advent of the style blog by professional and non-professionals alike - all resulting in people designing for themselves the rise of great personal style. Design has stopped being a start and finish process – we are looking at each other and learning and tweaking our spaces, our wardrobes our personal style all the time...hence Undecorate. I love a good debate." -- Christiane Lemieux
I did try to pick up a copy yesterday at my local Barnes & Nobel, however it was out of stock &and needed to be ordered. For that, I'm ordering on Amazon today. I'm actually looking forward to getting the book - I thought it had a unique approach to the thought process of merging how we live today and design with the spaces we live in. Personally, I too have broken out of the "everthing symmetrical - everthing perfectly balanced" shell... and I have been enjoying our home more now experimenting with different colors combos, playing with patterns, mixing metals, and of course displaying pieces I love.
