And she couldn’t have been nicer!
Last week at the Las Vegas World Market, I was lucky enough to meet one of my favorite design celebrities, Monica Pedersen of HGTV. When I got to the front of the line to have her sign my copy of her new book, Make It Beautiful: Designs and Ideas for Entertaining at Home, Monica completely blew me away when she greeted me: “Hey, Tin Ceilings!” After I recovered from the shock of her actually recognizing me, the talented and beautiful design star was kind enough to take this picture with me.

When I sent that picture to my wife, she replied that Monica is one of her favorite designers! So as a surprise, I had Monica autograph the book, “To my dear and talented colleague Damaris Jara.” Damaris loves the book, which features dozens of ideas for creative celebrations for every budget and every occasion, including graduations, birthdays, holidays, and more.
Partying with the Design Stars
Monica then invited me to the launch party for her new new fabric line MakeItBeautiful for Softline Home Fashions. The new line includes a wide range of styles that are truly beautiful, elegant, and sophisticated.
