Weekly Wellegant Find: Book, In the Company of Women


“The lesson I’ve learned over and over is not to compromise on quality. Even though it might take twice as long to attend to all the tiny details necessary to make something shipshape, it’s worth the effort.”

I received this beautiful and inspirational book from a dear friend recently – it’s titled, In the Company of Women: Inspiration and Advice from over 100 Makers, Artists and Entrepreneurs. The author, Grace Bonney, happens to be the founder of the popular blog, “Design*Sponge” (in which she explores her passion for interior design, among many other things). In this book, she has interviewed over 100 women – creatives and change-makers – and collected the wisdom and insights they’ve gained. As one would expect from an interior designer, the book is also a visual feast…beautiful photos of the women, their workspaces, homes, beloved objects, etc. Each page is something to savor!

If you can get your hands on a copy of this book, please do! And keep in mind that this is also a unique and beautiful gift to give a special woman in your life. It’s a coffee-table book, for sure, but one that’s more than just a decoration or accessory. You’ll find yourself turning to this one again and again, whenever you wish to celebrate and elevate yourself and others. It’s ‘girl-power’ at its best!

Here are a few more nuggets to chew on:


“My best asset cannot be measured or copied or calculated – it’s my mojo. I always lay that on the table first.”


“Most times, my inner voice tells me in a flash what I want and need, and whom to trust. I’m learning to honor that inner voice.”


“Women are the eyes and ears of the Universe.”


Have a beautiful week!
