I would like to end the week by thanking you for your inspiration, support and encouragement. Without you this blog would simply be a journal, but because of you I have had reason to search, learn and grow in order to best serve you.
But enough about me. I want to learn more about you and what you do. I also welcome your feedback on topics or features that you would like to see more or less of on the blog. Feel free to email me at courtney (at) courtneyprice.com
Thank you, and have a wonderful weekend.

About a month ago I took an Alt Summit online class on Copyright Issues for Bloggers, taught by Susan and William Brinson, creators of the gorgeous blog named House of Brinson- if you are not familiar with it I invite you to experience their visual feast. In their class they covered two specific scenarios: bloggers who create their own images and bloggers using others images. Both Brinsons are professionals in the industry- Susan works in advertising and Will is a professional photographer.
“Our main goal when we agreed to teach this class is to help the blogging community understand that using copyrighted work (specifically photography) without permission can have financial consequences.” -Susan Brinson
Their Alt class was so intriguing that I asked for a followup interview so I could share their insights with you. Here are some Q&A from our interview: Continue reading

Brizo, the faucet brand for the fashion forward, invited me to New York to see its newest products and attend an exclusive expenses-paid, design-focused event during Fashion Week. Needless to say, I’m elated! Brizo has collaborated with Jason Wu to create a gorgeous product line that we will be fortunate enough to learn about. May our homes be as stylish as our wardrobes….
They have an amazing agenda prepared for us which includes attending one of the hottest fashion shows of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week (the Jason Wu Fashion Show, of course…) and the Fashion Show After-Party. (!!!!) I will be reporting back on this~
Thank you, Brizo, I’m looking forward to it!
In case you have not heard, incandescent light bulbs are on a timeline to be phased out. 100 Watt bulbs will be phased out in 2012, 75 watt bulbs will be phased out in 2013, and 40 and 60 watt bulbs will be phased out in 2014. This leaves us with the choices of CFL or LED. I am not a fan of CFL lighting because of the “three-mile island” greenish cast of light, which messes with the colors in a room and offers an odd ambience. CFLs do have the advantage of lasting about 7 years, but if improperly disposed of, can harmfully expose people to mercury. These factors make LED lighting look quite appealing. While the bulbs may cost more initially, they last 23 years. Yes, you read that right. 23 years is likely longer than most people will even keep a lighting fixture. Not only are the LED options efficient and responsible environmentally, but they open up a new world of creative possibilities, first embraced by commercial design and now taking hold in residential interiors.
