The Intersection of Design & Motherhood
June 19, 2008
The Design Mom site is an Amazon Affiliate, and a RewardStyle Affiliate. If you see links that include "rstyle" or "amazon", those are affiliate links.
Want to bypass the affiliate links? No problem. Simply type in the main url (like amazon.com or target.com) directly, instead of clicking through from Design Mom.
Would you link to know more about how this site is monetized? You got it. That topic is covered in the FAQs.
The Design Mom Book is now available! It's filled with tips and strategies for making your home beautiful, comfortable, functional and kid-friendly — a place where both you and your kids will thrive. Find book tour info and pin-able photos of the book at the Design Mom Book tab in my navigation bar.
You can order your copy at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Books A Million. Or, check out Your Closest Independent Bookstore (and yes, they take pre-orders, too). If you'd like a SIGNED COPY, be sure to order through, Diesel Bookstore, here in Oakland by April 6th. I’m going to stop by and sign every single one.
