by Lynn Byrne

Anyone who does up their master bath like the one above has to be fun, vibrant—and, wait for it, DAZZLING! 

This is where Amanda Nisbet lives.  Lucky for us she has collected her designs in a brand new, hot off the presses book, entitled (quite appropriately) Dazzling Design.

Dazzling Design by Amanda Nesbit

Luckier still for you folks is the fact that, as a blogger ambassador for this year’s What’s New What’s Next Conference, Decor Arts Now has one signed copy of this hot, new book to give away to the “luckiest” reader.  Yep, you read that right.  The book will be signed by Amanda.

I haven’t seen a copy yet but just a peek at these rooms by Amanda suggests that it will be a colorful, inspirational tome.

The What’s New What’s Next Conference is a not-to-be-missed event for any design aficionado in NYC this Thursday, September 13.  I have attended the What’s New What’s Next Conference for the past two years and I can attest that it is the perfect  kick-off for fall.  Get a hint of what it is like here and here.

Editors from top magazines such as Architectural DigestElle Decor, House Beautiful, New York Cottages & Gardens, and Traditional Home gather with top interior designers like Charlotte Moss, Thomas Jayne and Thom Filicia  to lead panel discussions on all of the latest and greatest trends and products this season.

Moreover, in addition to Amanda, other designers, including Celerie Kemble and Katie Ridder among others, will be on deck to sign their books.  It offers a fantastic opportunity to meet and greet the leaders in the interior design industry while viewing this season’s product introductions in the showrooms.
