OMG I wrote a book!

Hello Color by Rachel Mae SmithAfter months and months from keeping this secret from you, today is the day where I can finally tell you the news. Guys… I WROTE A FREAKIN’ BOOK! Seriously, what a surreal statement. Little did I know that when I started this blog as a hobby years ago that eventually it would lead to me being a published author. I 100000% could not have gotten to this point without you and I’m beyond thankful that you’ve continued reading my blog over the years. But enough of the sentiments, here’s the inside scoop about the book! 

I teamed up with my publisher, Quirk Books earlier this year for the project. The hardback book itself, Hello Color, is packed with easy and very do-able ways to introduce color into your home. I cover everything from how to build a custom color palette, to never before seen projects for every room, and of course, how to photograph your home once you’ve completed all of the DIYS and want to show your space off to the world. Plus! Probably one of my favorite things about the book is that I selected a handful of artists to create custom prints that you can actually tear out of the back and hang for an instant gallery wall. Seriously, I can’t wait for you to get your hands on this thing!

Although it doesn’t come out until May 1st, you can pre-order it today on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.You can even check where to grab it locally when it comes out. I know that’s such a long time from now, but pre-orders really do help in the overall success of a book, and I would be so grateful for any help. Plus, it comes out right in time for Mother’s Day, so you can get your shopping done and out of the way super early! I’ll be going on a big tour in the summer of 2018, so we can celebrate together! This is a project that I’ve put everything I have into (I wrote, crafted, and photographed the entire thing!) and I just can’t wait for you to see it!


PS Tell me where to go on my tour! I’d love to meet + craft with you!
