I love when one of my blog posts leads to an email from a reader who has just the right answer for my design dilemma! Today I received an email from author Cathy Whitlock about her soon to be published book re-de-sign: New Directions For Your Interior Design Career (Fairchild Books, June, 2009) that will be a big help to interior design students as well as already established designers who may be looking to take their business to the next level. Cathy was kind enough to send me a pdf sneak peek and what I love about it is that she gets that creative types are a visual bunch. The book is full of beautiful photos as well as insights from top designers such as Alexa Hampton, Nina Campbell, Kelly Wearstler, and Martha Stewart, as well as magazine editors and book publishers. Whether you want to be a regular interior designer or the next start on HGTV, this book is for you! Cathy wanted me to mention that the book is priced as a text book on Amazon so it’s a little on the steep side so she will be setting up a website to offer it at a lesser price. While it’s not exactly a how-to guide for setting up an interior design business, it’s definitely a good start!
