Dan's Papers
Covering the Home Design Industry

"The only thing I have ever successfully made in the kitchen is a mess—and several little fires”

—CARRIE BRADSHAW
SEX AND THE CITY

Well, Bradshaw may have said this but fortunately there are millions of others who are seeking informative editorial about kitchen design and décor. This past summer I had the opportunity to write a few articles about this industry for Dan’s Papers. Dan’s is the largest weekly community newspaper in the Hamptons, with almost 50 years of consistent publication and a unique editorial covering New York City to Montauk. Since 1960, Dan's has been perceived as the bible on what to do and where to go. Starting in the spring of 2008 I began writing for the Home/Design section. My work within this industry as a PR and marketing professional had enabled me to establish a wealth of valuable contacts and expertise in this area – providing some great sources for research and quotes.

One of my PR clients participated in the 2007 Hampton Designer Showhouse and after spending many hours at the Showhouse that summer I was hooked. In 2008 I was back; this time as a journalist. I had the opportunity to interview some of the best and the brightest in the business for Dan’s (September 19 issue). From kitchen antiques to bathroom fixtures, I look forward to continuing to cover this perpetually fascinating industry.
