Sophie Donelson here. I’m an author, speaker, and subject-matter expert in the fields of home design, living, and decorating. My next book, on imaginative kitchen design, drops in May.
I present talks and host panels for industry and consumer forums such as the Future of Home conference, the Luxury Connect real estate summit, and others. I contribute articles and ideas to Business of Home, Elle Decoration, Veranda, House Beautiful, and others. I write A+ content for Vrbo, Ann Sacks, OKA, Circa Lighting, and Hudson’s Bay. I also Instagram a bit, too: @SophieDow.
