Our Rooster Books author Carleton Varney!!

💜💚🧡💙❤️ • #regram @paulaswallace Step into the kaleidoscopic world of @carletonvarney 🌈 As a leading figure in interior design, a future rockstar, and president of @dorothydraperco, Carleton prefers living in color. Take it from Dorothy Draper herself, the doyenne of interior design: “Why live in a drab world, when you can fill your room with the colors of a summer garden?” I couldn’t agree more ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜 Happy #WorldInteriorsDay!

'Faces of Immigration' is a piece that pays homage to the modern immigrant. The Statue of Liberty has been a symbol of freedom for generations for immigrants seeking to live in the United States. However, it is not the statue itself that makes this country great, rather the diverse people that come here from all walks of life. From professionals, to refugees and asylum seekers, the United States has always been a place to call home. However, home is not the place where one has shelter, but the friends and family that offer comfort and a safe environment. That is what this piece seeks to portray, that this country’s most recognizable symbol wears a cloak of fabric made of the diverse individuals whose lives interweave every day.

Meyer Davis

Love this chat with Will Meyer and Gray Davis, authors of Made to Measure (Vendome)! I love hearing about the beginning of their practice.

“We started off with a really great private residence and restaurant, from that point on it really defined what our practice is about: beautifully detailed residential and hospitality work. Those worlds while seemingly very different they actually inform each other, and I think it makes our work what it is.” – Will Meyer and Gray Davis talking about how they started Meyer Davis in 1999 and what defines their studio for the Platinum Circle 2018 Awards. @hospitalitydesign #MD #meyerdavis #hdmagazine #hospitalitydesign #platinumcircle #graydavis #willmeyer #interiordesign #design

Dorothy Draper & Co.

Rooster Books is proud to have worked with Carleton Varney, Mrs. Draper’s protege on the book In the Pink, Dorothy Draper, America’s Most Fabulous Decorator as well as reprinting her Decorating Is Fun and Entertaining is Fun for Shannongrove Press.

“Dorothy Draper has been called the original Martha Stewart. Not only did she start the first interior design company in the United States, she was a celebrity in her own right—her name was synonymous with all things interior design in the 1940s and 50s.” - Martha Stewart Magazine

This baby got a BIG ego boost today! Check out my feature in Curbed about my apartment renovation, as I continue the hype tour for Lil' Icon. It's a real mix of my heritage, homeliness, hype machine (#BabyToBK product placement!) and hangovers.

Special thanks to Waldek for building it, Nora Calderwood and Jane Creech for helping me style the place, to Michel Arnaud for shooting it, and Kelsey Keith + team for giving it internet life!

Are Smartphones Draining our Creativity? Here’s an Idea for Getting It Back

We think Walter Mitty would definitely agree with these findings...
Read The Secret Life of Walter Mitty by James Thurber for some inspiration.

We’ve banished boredom with our phones. Recent research suggests that we might be banishing our creativity along with it.
