Carolyn Westbrook: Thank You

Dear Decorating Friends,

Thanks for all of your support and well wishes about the new book. I have been so enthralled with trying to put together the most fabulous French inspired that one has ever seen that I have forgotten to write. What a great assignment! I love anything French, so loving it. From the crusty French shell art boxes to the crystal chandeliers, hoping that everyone out there will gain inspiration from the new release. My goal is to make it very diverse. That way we will have a little something for everyone. This is going to keep me busy for a while and I am frazzled as I write this on decorating overload, but what better place to be.
I have met a new friend and inspiration along my travels, that I am sure most of you have already heard of...Charyl Coleman. She has been in many magazines, but most memorable for me was the Victoria issue where she did the decor for the revamp of the Havana in San Antonio. When she said that, the memories of that issue came flooding back, not to mention Joe and I went there for our anniversary several years ago...my response was, "You had me at Havana." Charyl does incredible work and just love her ease of style.

Love meeting a fellow sister that loves great design as much as I.

I have to run now and looks like an entire week of 24/7 decorating. Hope everyone is well and let me hear from you! Love reading your comments, it keeps me going!

XOXO Carolyn
