Friday Je T'aime Diane Dorrans Saeks. Writer, editor, style icon.

Diane Dorrans Saeks
Author of "The Saloniste Style" Blog- one of my favorite blogs.

My first introduction to Diane Dorrans Saeks came through living and working in San Francisco for many years in the design industry. I had the pleasure of meeting her at a book signing at the Wiseman Group, for one of her many books.

As a designer, writer, and educator, Saeks has an incredible presence in the design community. Saeks writes and edits periodicals and has published 18 books. She reaches beyond interior design to architecture, travel, fashion, and people.

Saeks's blog "The Style Saloniste" carries her aesthetic and voice into an online, blog form. Often, I struggle to find blogs that are actually educational, journalistic, and informative and do more than plugging the same designers over and over -- or suggesting this season's use of leopard in interiors, or making a room “board” based off of an outfit. Or any boards for that matter. Yawn....

Sophisticated, interesting, evolving and worldly...

Diane's blog is more of a reflection of the design world I came to know and love in San Francisco and beyond.

It’s a privilege to be able to read such an accomplished interiors writer, with so many colorful and beautiful stories. Diane’s blog features original content, exclusive interviews with fabulous designers - truly keeping with the interaction present at a "salon". The images are beautiful and inspirational.

I look forward to reading more post and garnering further inspiration

from Diane Dorrans Saeks!

You may recognize some of Diane's books- she's kind of a big deal! Obviously.
