So excited for Eddie Ross!

Here's a post I did on Greenwich including pics from the Pop-up Shop experience... here.

Next, Kyle Robino and I, as co-chairs, were thrilled to welcome the pair to Omaha for the Lauritzen Gardens Antique Show celebrating it's 10th anniversary! (More about Eddie and the 2013 speakers here.)

I remember that weekend like it was yesterday. Eddie talked about his book! And now, finally, the book is here...


This excerpt is taken directly from Amazon and describes the book perfectly!

In this richly illustrated style guide from an unabashed hoarder of all things beautiful, design editor and entertaining expert Eddie Ross reveals his insider secrets to creating exciting interiors, table settings and parties with chic and accessible finds that celebrate who you are and what you love.

Featuring never-before-published photographs of Eddie’s own homes―his eclectic apartment in New York and Pine Hill Farm in Connecticut―Modern Mix cracks the code to navigating thrift shops, yard sales and flea markets with confidence. Funny and insightful, Eddie is like a trusted friend on the front lines of flea markets and thrifting, telling you what to look for, where to find it and how to restore it. Then he shows you how to use color and pattern to infuse your finds with a fresh, playful spirit, combining high and low, new and old, classic and modern elements into a warm and inviting style that expresses your personality.

Each of the book’s eight chapters―Inspire, Discover, Acquire, Restore, Curate, Mix, Style and Entertain―begins with hand-illustrated titles printed in black foil on tipped-in half-pages, revealing surprises at every turn. The essential insights Eddie shares throughout the book culminate in a gorgeous grand finale of gawk-worthy rooms, table settings, bars, buffets and parties.

With more than 350 full-color photographs, time-saving tips and real-life shortcuts to decorating and entertaining beautifully on a budget, Modern Mix will open your eyes to the extraordinary possibilities within your reach and inspire you to live every day colorfully and creatively.
