How do I start a post about a book I collaborated on?
I think that the first thing I want to share is my happiness and gratitude for being a part of it!
As I mentioned last week, we’ve met in Munich to celebrate the launch of ‘Best of Interior – Bloggers Trend’, the third book from the ‘Wohnen aus dem wahren leben’ series by the German publishing house Callwey Verlag.
Having it in my hands right now, flipping through its pages, admiring the beautiful homes, creative ideas and trend forecast by 15 international bloggers, who have contributed to it – makes me feel proud guys. Very proud! The book is curated by lovely Gudy Herder, Ricarda Nieswandt and Igor Josifovic and it’s a stunning collection of ‘real home ideas’, by us.
Have I already expressed how happy I am about this? There are times when I have to pinch myself and make sure it’s not a dream. If somebody told me three years ago I would collaborate on an interior book I would probably laugh (and laugh out loud some more) I hardly knew how to turn on my BIG camera back then. And interiors? It surely was my passion – but something I could do professionaly? Something that could become a part of a book? I know I am very excited about it, but when things go well, I can’t help but shout from the rooftops!
I’m really grateful I can share my happiness with you lovely people, who read my blog and connect through social media – thank you for being a part of Passion Shake adventures!
The launch took place on a beautiful tarrace at the Ambiente Direct where the book was presented for the first time, followed by the award ceremony – with three talented winners – ‘Best Interior Blog’ – Herz und Blut, ‘Best Creative Idea’ – Walfriedenstate and ‘Best Individual Style’ – my dearest ‘Avenue Lifestyle‘. In the book you can also find ideas from: House of Valentina, Sweet Living Interior, Fluxi on Tour, Britta Bloggt, Home Lifestyle, Lapinblu, Ich Liebe Deko, Raum Kroenung, Hege in France, Seelected and Mademoiselle Poirot. I think it was a truly wonderful evening for all of us – book contributors and many friends who joined us that day.
And now, I would like to show you a peek into what’s inside, including some of my images:
