"My latest book Inspired By… features Michael [Bruno]’s Long Island home,” said Ireland.“His West Village townhouse was packed with so many of my greatest friends from coast to coast—Wendy Goodman, Paul Fortune, Sally Field, Newell Turner, and my two directing girlfriends Tricia Brock and Gaby Dellal. The event was a huge success and there's not a book left!”

Inspired By... offers and inside look to the friends and colleagues whose individuality and passion for design have inspired Ireland's life and work through the years. This book features a personalized journey through an array of homes that reflect the diversity and eclecticism of the people in Ireland's life. They're innately creative, they have the confidence to be original, and their homes collectively express the ambient consequence of living passionately and stylishly.

"There is nobody that is more fun and kind than Kathryn Ireland, being featured among her friends in her latest book, Inspired By… made me realize I have a wonderful life,” said Bruno. “It was amazing to see how many people love her from all over the world. Meeting the actress, Sally Field was the surprise of the evening.”
