Tonight I had the pleasure of meeting the Founding Editor of Domino magazine-Deborah Needleman. She was here for a book signing at Room and Board on 14th Street. Her book is "The Perfectly Imperfect Home". Buy it!
The 4th floor of Room and Board was neatly packed with blogger, designers and other inspired people-all there for Deborah. She took her time with each person who requested her signature on their "Perfect" book. It was simply an amazing experience for me. I can remember flipping through Domino magazine and seeing the "letter from the Editor" along with the picture of Deborah always perfectly dressed with a genuine smile. During our meeting, I found her to be present, kind and approachable..easy to talk with. She received each person as though she was receiving them into her home. She spent 5 minutes (sometimes more) with each person-sharing a little about herself while also sharing interest in her guests.
As I write this and reflect on my meeting, I can not help but feel inspired to:
1. Continue to blog
2. Continue to express myself through design/decorating
I thank Deborah for her visit to DC and hope to meet her again.
