Today I am honored to present to you the second book I was co-authoring for the Callwey publisher: Wohnideen aus dem wahren Leben. ‘Interior ideas from real life’ is a very appropriate title for this book comprised of only interior blogger ideas and stylings from their own homes. It is the second book with the same title – the first book was published two years ago and included images from my home too. For the second book I was asked to be part of a jury that will appoint a group of European interior bloggers and select their images for the book. I was happy to be part of a great jury alongside my friends and colleagues Gudy Herder of Eclectic Trends and Ricarda Nieswandt of 23qm Stil and the talented writer Petra Harms.
Last Friday we have launched the book here in Munich and the publisher Callwey organized a fantastic day for us: First we had the unique opportunity to visit the production facilities of the incredibly beautiful Nymphenburg porcelain manufacturer – a rare opportunity as these kind of behind-the-scene peeks are rather uncommon at this century old porcelain manufacturer. Later on we had a tour of the publishing house and interesting presentations with Farrow & Ball and my friend and book author Steffi Luxat. Finally, a festive award ceremony was organized because alongside the book launch we have also announced the three winners of the ‘Best of Interior Blogs Awards 2015’: Mette Jakobsen of Monsterscircus is the ‘Interior Blog of the Year’, Anastasia Benko won in the category ‘Best Individual Style’ and Kimberly Duran of Swoon Worthy won in the category ‘Best Creative Idea’.
I had a blast this weekend in Munich with all my international blogger friends who participated in this wonderful book – it is packed with great ideas for your own home. If you want to be one of the first ones to call this book your own, join the little giveaway. Here are the giveaway rules:
