Who doesn’t want to live a more beautiful life? I know I do! But, where to start?
Tomorrow, a very special book is being released, by my friend, Ted Kennedy Watson, acclaimed retailer, blogger and arbiter of great style and gracious living. Style & Simplicity, An A to Z Guide to Living a More Beautiful Life provides a roadmap, with ideas that are within reach for all of us. As Ted says in his introduction, ” This book is really all about the small details that make our daily lives rich.”
From Art and Adirondack chairs to Wrapping and Zinnias…there is SO much to be discovered and uncovered in this delightful tome. As I told Ted, this is the kind of book that you’ll have forever. It will be as relevant in 5, 10 and 20 years as it is today. It speaks to all ages and all stages of life. For we are never too old or too young to pursue a beautiful life. So, not only will you want a copy, you will want to give it to your friends and loved ones. Priced at just $20, it is a steal and the perfectly priced gift.
Below, Ted gives us a sneak peek into how he lives and at some of the pages in his first book. All of the wonderful photographs were taken by Ted.
I, of course, was grinning broadly to discover that T is for Tulip!
PPT: Among all the beautiful things you are surrounded by….do you have one favorite thing, aside from Mr. Sive and Bailey?
The official book signing is happening in Seattle tomorrow at one of Ted’s magical shops. But, for 5 (that’s right FIVE) lucky readers, Ted has signed advance copies for you and they are ready to mail out. Simply leave a comment below with your favorite letter + word that you would include in a guide to living a more beautiful life.
I’ll start! C for Celebrations. For in celebrating those we love and care about, we elevate not only their lives, but our own. Ted, here’s to you, the release of your first book and for showing us how to create a more beautiful life….with style and simplicity!
