Giveaway: “Nathan Turner’s American Style” Signed Copy!

Now y’all know there are a couple designers I’ve profiled on here who just fan my freakin’ skirt, but like a parent with a gaggle of children… I have a secret favorite. His name is Nathan Turner, he’s been featured on our blog numerous times, and he’s just released his very first book, “Nathan Turner’s American Style”!

And good news:  Not only is Nathan coming out with his very first book, but he has oh-so generously offered to GIVE AWAY ONE SIGNED COPY!:

I have to say, what I love about this book is that, not only does it highlight Nathan’s “barefoot, fuss-free, but still high style”, but it’s got three sections filled with gorgeous layouts of Nathan’s signature laid-back Cali interiors: Beach Chic, City Living – even a little Country.

TO ENTER, simply LEAVE A COMMENT ON THIS POST before this Friday, October 19 at midnight, telling us what it is about Nathan’s designs that get your goat.  Check out our previous post on Nathan to take a look at his design and entertaining genius.

The winner will be chosen by and announced on Monday, October 22! BONUS? For those living in the LA area, Nathan will be launching his book this Thursday, October 18th from 6:30-8:30 at Pottery Barn in Beverly Hills:

Now, a couple questions for the newly minted author:

Q: How long have you wanted to write a book?

A: I had been thinking about a book for about a year before I signed with Agrams. Before that I just didn’t think I had enough content or work under my belt, then one day I felt ready!

Q: What’s the book in a sentence or two?

A: A true lifestyle book, there’s design, entertaining, food.

Q: I know you love to travel.  Go anywhere amazing this summer?

A: Yes!  An amazing trip with clients to Tokyo, Singapore, Jakarta, and Bali.  It was so inspiring to see these exotic places I’d never seen before.

Q: You always have a million things up your sleeve.  What’s next?

A: I’m working on a few projects in Asia (hence the summer trip).  It’s always exciting working in such different locales!

Ahh, SO looking forward to getting my paws on this delicious new book, available here.  Aren’t you? Good luck!!!
