"Holiday with Matthew Mead" Contest


Back in March, amidst the release of his premiere issue of Flea Market Style magazine, celebrity lifestyle and entertaining expert, Mr. Matthew Mead, was kind enough to take time out of his busy schedule to write a Foreword for my e-book, "Creating An Inspired Home".

I've been a huge fan of his for many years, but it wasn't until I read this post he wrote...

Turning Roses Into Money

...that I finally mustered up the courage to write and ask him if he'd consider writing my Foreword.

After reading his post, I felt super-compelled to keep chasing my dreams.

And I felt particularly inspired to chase the one marked, "Work With Matthew Mead Someday" after I read it too!

Here's a snippet of some of the sweet things he had to say about my e-book...


He's a real "day maker" I tell ya!


Matthew's Flea Market Style magazine was a hit, and I'm so excited to blog about a special announcement concerning his next exciting endeavour here today.


If you haven't already heard, Matthew is releasing a book-a-zine (book/magazine) called "Holiday with Matthew Mead" later this year.

(He's even asked your truly to contribute to the project, and I am beyond thrilled about the opportunity!)

Matthew is also on the lookout for something else to feature in "Holiday" too.

Check out what Team Holiday posted on their blog today...

How fun it would be to have your house used for such an exciting article.
I LOVE Christmas and it would be the icing on he cake to see it done by someone so talented as Mathew.
I am just wondering if I could go in Layla and Kev mode and fix it up before I enter. hehe
Love all the info. geri

Such a great contest. I agree with everything he said about your book (what a great review by the way!), I read your book a couple months ago and enjoyed it thoroughly.

For the average home owner who is not an Interior Designer like you and I, this book will really help them get the inspired home they're after and enjoy so many of the gorgeous images you've included too. :)

Just seeing the magazine, and your picture at the beginning of your post, made me excited for Christmas. (yikes!)

I love it when I complete a major goal - congratulations.

Thank you Layla. Seeing what/who inspires the one who inspires me kind of gives me little goose-bumps. Definitely compels me to reach beyond my comfort zones to new and different actions and aspirations. Thanks again for sharing!
