OK, so we’re not that old, but in just a few days, the Tobi Fairley Blog will be 2. What’s better for making an old girl look fresh again than giving her a makeover, right?
I hope you love the new look. There are lots of new things to see. I am so excited to bring you more behind the scenes peeks, video tours and inside information from my design projects. I will continue to bring you some of my favorite blog series like Tobi’s Top Ten and will be adding lots of fun new ones that you are gonna love! Plus I will bring you many more DIY projects and in-depth looks at my favorite entertaining ideas. So get ready, this is going to be your favorite daily “serving” of design, entertaining, style and more!
Besides my design posts of the day, or “Design Dujour”, you can now find fun monthly features in the blog sidebar that offer you a lot of bonus content. On the first day of each month, we will launch a new focus for Home and Garden, Style, Entertaining, and Travel…all of my favorite things. In addition to that, I will bring you a look at one of my favorite current trends each month in “What’s Hot.” And with the “Color Coded” feature, you’ll gain insight into my favorite ways to use color. Oh, you know how I love color! The great thing about these monthly features is that they are conveniently located right there in the sidebar, so you can easily revisit them as often as you want each month. These features will be the jumping off point for many of my daily blog posts, so if they leave you wanting more…great! I’m going to give it to you.
So here’s what you’ll find in the September monthly features. The Home and Garden section takes you inside my Fayetteville, Arkansas project that recently landed on the cover of At Home in Arkansas’s August issue and gives you a glimpse of my client’s funky and fabulous style. In our September Style feature, I have a fun chat with my fellow Arkansan and Project Runway Season 5 runner-up Korto Momolu. Korto is about to head down the runway again in just a couple of weeks with her Fall 2011 New York Fashion Week collection. You won’t want to miss her top 5 must-haves for every fall wardrobe and hear what inspires her work. My travel and leisure feature will help you travel in style this fall. But before you get cooled off with all things Fall, I am heating things up with a fun Entertaining segment that’s perfect for any time of year. Plus my favorite trend and color picks for your home and wardrobe are all there in my new monthly features tabs.
Oh and one last thing before you go…Did you notice the bold and fun patterns here on my new blog’s homepage? Well they are a sneak peek at my new wallpaper and fabric collections that will be out next month. My amazing collaboration with wallpaper designer Given Campbell resulted in such gorgeous designs that I wanted a few of them to grace the new blog home page. So stay tuned for the big reveal of our colorful fabric and wallpaper offerings in just a few weeks when my new Tobi Fairley Interior Design website goes live.
For now, I hope you will enjoy perusing my new blog and monthly features. I can’t wait to hear what you think. Please accept a gigantic heart-felt hug from me to you for all your support, readership and comments over the past 2 years. It has been a wonderful ride so far and it is only getting better!
Here’s to many more inspired days spent with you. Cheers!
