Here’s a snapshot of my 5 days in NYC via my Instagram page. I was wined and dined, educated and inspired, by the best in the design industry. I have so many great memories and stories to share with you over the next week or so friends! xo
The time is almost here for me to go to #BlogTourNYC! I’m in the process of packing up my luggage and of course second guessing everything I’m taking. Normally, I’m a bit of a last minute planner when it comes to packing and tend to throw things in a bag, praying I remember everything. This time I’ve been more focused and plan on going prepared. Comfort and stylish is what I’m after, so I’ve been Pinning outfit ideas like crazy since I found out I was going. I’m not a fussy dresser and gravitate toward simply-detailed, quality pieces without a lot of pattern…”effortless chic”.
I’ve also been reading up on our sponsors and fellow bloggers to make the most of this experience and ensure I’m ready to put in my best effort. It’s been fantastic stepping outside my own business and looking at what others are doing.
We have some pretty talented people attending this gig and we’ve all been given important assignments: educating ourselves on our sponsors so we can share with you their amazing products when we’re home, nominating our top 10 design brands or artisans from the areas of furniture, lighting, textiles, kitchen, bath, tile, accessories, etc. at the Architectural Digest Home Design Show, and reviewing our hotel and the restaurants we go to! I’ll keep you posted! xoMy PinterestMy Nikon for sharing fabulous pictures!

We’ve been styling a few of our projects lately. The most recent is a large, beautiful home we designed in St. George. Here are some pictures to show some of the things we purchased on one of our shopping trips and a few snap shots of them in place. There’s more art to hang, and styling to do, but it’s amazing how a few beautiful, quality pieces can give a home personality. We’re installing a family photowall above these unique stools.
