Over a year ago on ACL, I did a series on Michael Smith Alums. Fellow MS graduates that had spun off and started their own businesses. The talent pool is ridiculous. Joe & Parrish from Harbinger featured in November's House Beautiful, Brian with his own fabric line Ferrick Mason, Oliver who is impossible to miss, because he is everywhere. Which brings us to Katie and Jason of Maine Design- right after the post went live they found out that their project would be featured in House Beautiful and now, over a year later (shows you how long you may have to wait to be published in a national magazine), they are in the Dec/Jan 2012 issue. Normally, I avoid posting commentary on magazine spreads, but I can't pass up showing off my talented friends. Get the full story in the December / January 2012 House Beautiful.
