On a rooftop deck in the chic Yorkville section of Toronto, a formidable and enthusiastic crowd, which included a major cross-section of the “who’s who” of Canadian architecture, joined to celebrate well-known architect/interior designer Dee Dee Eustace Taylor, Principal of Taylor Hannah Architect, Inc., who unveiled her new book, DEE DEE RULES: NYC LIFE, LOVE AND DESIGN. In it, the author shares 365 Design Rules as she humorously and without filters, journals her daily life over the course of a magical year living in New York City. With over 75 images of Dee Dee’s architecture / interior design projects, the book balances the hot topics of Life, Love and Design, while inspiring readers endlessly to “love designing your life.”
