ms. needleman's perfectly imperfect home

There’s nothing better than picking up a magazine that you don’t normally purchase + finding something wonderful. In this case, it’s Deborah Needleman’s Hudson Valley home as published in the November issue of Martha Stewart Living. It’s no secret that I love Deborah: I nearly did cartwheels when I discovered that she’d been hired to spearhead WSJ’s Off Duty section (in my opinion, what she’s done thus far for the newspaper is nothing short of miraculous). But back to the story at hand, Deborah’s country maison seems like type of home that encourages one to take running leaps onto over-stuffed couches… It’s beautiful, but not stuffy. I imagine that this is what her newest book, The Perfectly Imperfect Home, is all about. Have any of you been lucky enough to get your hands on a copy? :)

So glad you shared this! I have not (unfortunately...) bought my copy yet. I don't know what I'm waiting for! I'm sure it's equally wonderful :) xxKelly

Oh I saw this in Martha Stewart and I must say, my heart will always leap when I see Deb Needleman's name -- I am STILL IN MOURNING over Domino! I can't wait to see her book!!!

Hi Fallon, I pre-ordered mine from amazon and it came the day before I flew to Hong Kong on holiday. I devoured it on the plane and have reread parts of it in bed at night. It is one of the best design books I've ever purchased. The illustrations by another favorite of mine (Virginia Johnson) are a feast for the eyes. Well worth the purchase!

Adore Deborah and I'm so pleased you posted these photos. You actually sparked the urge for me to pull her book out again. Off to read!
