Ruthie Sommers: American Idol

I know I have lauded the overflowing talent and business sense of Ruthie Sommers ad nauseum. But bear with me, as the release of her book approaches I have spent some time looking over her past designs and feeling very, very inspired. She is not only a master of the mix when it comes to the recipe for good interiors (a lot of this, a dash of that, a bit less of this- voila! Perfection!) but a great business woman as well who makes time for family while growing her business (read her Ladies Who Launch interview here). I’m pleased to say that my own little business and growing fast as well, being fully booked and bursting with excitement over my projects both big and small, I am looking ahead to see where I can take this. Looking at Ruthie’s great success only inspires me more! From the very first cover of Domino (above left) to the cover of her own book… a girl can dream, and make it come true.
