I was reading over my list of resolutions and things I wanted to do in 2008 and although I didn’t keep them all or make all of them happen, I think I had a pretty good year!

I never expected that my friend would actually ask me to decorate his bachelor pad or that I would be profiled by 1stdibs. I never thought that I would write for a magazine and am so grateful to Kansas City Home Design for giving me a chance and to Domino for asking me to write the story I pitched to them about the Next Generation and who included me as one of their favorite blogs in 2008. I am excited that a few other people took a chance and hired me to decorate their apartments which you will hear about soon!

I am also so happy about all the wonderful people whom I met and became friends with in 2008 from the team at Domino and Williams-Sonoma Home, Flair and Maison24, to my fabulous friend Kelly at Dorothy Draper/Carelton V and Eddie and Jaithan who inspire me everyday, Stefan of Architect Design who is so sweet, Emily of Scented Glossy Magazines who makes me laugh out loud, the lovely David Jimenez and especially my wonderfully supportive and encouraging readers! I value all of you who take the time to email me and leave comments as well as those who just stop by from time to time.

It really has been a good year but I just know that 2009 is going to be even better…for all of us! Happy New Year!

    Thank you, Heather! I’m so glad we’re friends too. You have always been my favorite New York housewife, even though you’re not a housewife and you’re not crazy insane. Does that make sense? 🙂
    Cheers to 2009 and meeting Kid Rock!

    Happy New Year Everyone!

    Emily (SGM) – I think so! By the way, when I run into him antiquing, should call him Bob or Robert??? I’m going to have to figure that out. Hahahaha!

    Love your blog, but fail to see why people keep supporting Eddie Ross. Was I the only person that found him mean and a braggart on Top Design? You may like his style but I think people should also be nice and have some humility and not run around bragging about who they work for “I work for the best!”. There are plenty of people out there with great taste that are also nice people.

    Dear Ms. Chic,

    Happy New Year! Thanks so much for a year of inspiration. I hope 2009 is another wonderful year for you. I suspect it will be.


    Popped into Maison 24 this week (finally!) — that is one delicious scented candle!

    It’s fun to see your bookshelf! I have many of the same volumes, but would love to see some of the others.
    Happy New Year to you; many thanks for helping to make my 2008 a better one!
