Birth Announcement

After two-plus densely packed years of writing and researching and revising and editing (and the entire last month especially!), I am so thrilled to announce that the gestation period for my book is finally over:



And if you wonder whether I woke up last night and clicked on the Amazon link just to make sure I wasn't dreaming, I have zero embarrassment in telling you that yes, yes I did. 

(Me at 2:51 AM: Phew, it's still there!)

Here's a bigger photo of the cover:
(Photo by Ivan Terestchenko.)

There will be lots more to say about the book in the coming months, but I wanted you to be the first to see it here. 

It was this blog, after all, that inspired me to write it. 

And it was YOU, my blog readers, with your unquenchable passion for literature and design, who I think of as the silent co-writers on my shoulder. 

What's Novel Interiors about?

It's about taking cues from the enchanting worlds of classic novels to show you how they can inspire your decorating style, the way you relax and entertain, even the colors and fabrics that you're drawn to.

In a bouillon cube, it's about living a well-read life.

It's for design aficionados who want to add another layer of meaning to their personal spaces. 

It's for lovers of classic literature who want to hone in on the design style that reflects who they truly are. 

Whether you're a fan of Austen or Proust, Woolf or Waugh, Cather or Fitzgerald, I promise there's a chapter for you. 

It comes out December 2nd, and you can pre-order it HERE

Such an alluring cover!

Congratulations, Lisa.

So many congratulations Lisa! The cover is absolutely beautiful - and I am preordering right this minute! Ole to you!

Lisa Borgnes Giramonti said...

Michelle:
The room on the cover is in the chapter on bohemian writers like Isak Dineson, Virginia Woolf, Dodie Smith, Katherine Mansfield and others, who embraced color, chaos and the unconventional. It's one of my favorite chapters, actually!

Michelle said...

Lisa:
Oh how I would love to put my feet up in this very red room and chat with those writers - so apropos.

Dear Lisa,
This looks to be really interesting. I have been thinking about your love of interesting and possibly eccentric interiors as I travel England.

I recommended you to visit Folgate Street in London...well now I have discovered a place, collected items by an eccentric akin to Bloomsbury but wildly differentl.

II took some photos hoping to wet your interest. This castle is seriously both eccentric and interesting as you already appreciate about the English. How can I send you a photo?

Check out Chillingham Castle !
