Celebrating...and Giving Away a Copy of Interiors Southeast!

The last few days have been filled with holiday preparations….fresh greens, garland, shopping, wrapping, cards, ribbon. It’s now the 12 days before Christmas and I’m looking forward to the festivities filled with friends and family. The kids are home from college and it’s great to have the energy back in the house. Let the baking begin!

We just learned of a pleasant surprise. As you may know, Southern Studio has been featured in a new book, Interiors Southeast. Check out the latest announcement regarding the book from the publisher Panache Partners….

Great News! Interiors Southeast was selected for a Barnes and Noble promotion December 13th through 26th. The book will be featured on the “New Hardcover Arrivals’ table in the center aisle of leading Barnes and Noble stores throughout the region. For your reference, Barnes and Noble selects books to be in this promotion – we can’t request them to do so. They must be impressed with IPG’s (our distributor) presentation of the book and excited to carry it. Congratulations to all the fabulous designers featured in the book and thank you all for making this possible!

We’ve never done this before, but it’s time to celebrate 2011! In honor of the Barnes and Noble promotion (and the 12 days of Christmas), we will give away a copy of Interiors Southeast. All you have to do is leave a comment on this blog or our Facebook page and tell us your favorite Christmas cookie (can you tell I’m ready to start baking?) by Friday, December 16. We will randomly draw a winner and you will have a new coffee table book filled with beautiful interiors to inspire you in 2012!


  1. Hmmm….just one? I like them ALL this time of year. But I guess if I have to choose I will say Peanut Butter Balls (maybe not technically a cookie?) Not because they are so super delicious, but they are the ONE thing I remember my mom always making at Christmas when I was a child. Once I married and had children of my own she gave me the recipe and I have to make them myself now!
    I do make a chocolate cookie with a melted Andes mint on top that’s a favorite and I love the Peanut Butter Blossoms and the…see, I told you I couldn’t choose just one! Happy Baking and Merry Christmas! Congratulations on being featured in the book!

  2. Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies- this was an old family recipe that was given to me by my Grandmother. The main ingredient is Bisquick, this is easy to make and one of the first cookies I taught my kids how to make. They are still a favorite with all my kids, I am now looking forward to teaching the newest generation of the family how to make these, once my grandson gets old enough to help bake cookies.
    Merry Christmas from the North Pole (Alaska that is)

  3. I know I’m late to comment…like you I’ve been wrapped up in the Christmas spirit!

    When I think of Christmas cookies, I remember Grandma making all kinds of cookies! Chocolate chips cookies were my favorite. I still can’t make them like she did! I remember the dried fruit kind too – not my favorite – but I remember trying to dig through those to get to the chocolate chip ones! 🙂

    Off to do some shopping…! HO! HO! HO!

  4. Time to start the baking and you all picked my favorites!
    Shasta…Peanut Blossoms are my favorite and I would love the recipe with Andes mints (have them in my pantry).
    Cheri…I have the recipe for the Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies, but haven’t made them in years. I think I’ll bake a batch.
    Cindy…Grandma loved the Fruitcake Cookies. I think it’s an adult thing, so maybe they would taste better now.
    Merry Christmas to all!
