before and after

happy holidays + happy new year!

by Grace Bonney

ac and i are settling in down south to celebrate the holidays so i’m it’s about time to close up shop here at d*s for the holiday break. each year i give our hard-working editors a week-long break between christmas and new year’s eve, so we’ll be taking a winter blogging break between today and january. we’ll return on january 4th with regular posting and a brand new d*s desktop calendar for january from artist julia rothman!

there’s so much excitement going on for 2010 (a layout redesign for d*s, the d*s book, new columns, biz ladies tours, and more!) that i can’t wait to hit the ground running. until then, i wanted to take a moment to thank each and every one of you for your support this year. you guys are the reason we get to do what we love each day, and all of us here at d*s are truly thankful for your readership. thank you and happy holidays. best wishes for a wonderful new year- we’ll see you on monday, january 4th!

*ps: this beautiful holiday fireplace before and after comes from danielle thompson. click here to check out more on her makeover.
