the 10
faux bois pieces I'm currently obsessed with


Atlanta-based writer AMY FLURRY has pitched—and ultimately penned—stories for some of the biggest magazines on the newsstand (InStyle, Country Living, Lucky, etc.). And as an editor she's been on the other side of the desk, clicking through pitches from publicists and struggling designers looking for a big break. In response to it all, she decided to write her first how-to book: Recipe for Press: Pitch Your Story Like the Pros & Create a Buzz!, which is packed with good, no-nonsense advice for budding entrepeneurs. Though she may be a writer first, Amy has great, considered taste-which is how she came to choose a faux-bois cover for her book. "Freshly milled timber is so naturally inviting," she explains. "Plus, it's all the rage!"
