Win The Chance To Meet Vicente Wolf!

Hey south of the border friends! I’m so excited and honoured to promote this amazing contest from PPG Pittsburgh Paints & PPG Porter Paints to meet celebrity designer Vicente Wolf!  I was mentored by Vicente in 2006 and it was an unforgettable, life-changing experience. I’ll write a post about it soon called “Having The Guts To Ask.”  So please trust me when I say this will be an incredible experience for the winner!

Tina Ramchandani, a talented designer and blogger friend of mine worked for Vicente for 5 years.  The Voice of Color, Vicente Wolf and Tina are teaming up to bring one lucky reader to New York City to attend the color launch event on May 22nd. The winner will also get to speak to Vicente one on one, in his home, about design and interiors.

Fans of design, interiors and Vicente Wolf can enter by creating a Pinterest board titled, “My Vicente Wolf Design Inspiration” filled with their own style, inspiration from Vicente’s designs and décor and incorporating the new Vicente Wolf Color Collection by PPG Voice of Color.

There’s only 7 days left, so make sure you submit right away!  Good Luck!win-trip-discuss-design-interiors-vicente-wolf-nyc-home.jpg

I Want To Live In A Showroom

I’ve been a fan of Baker Furniture’s classic aesthetic since the beginning of my career. I was blown away by the gorgeous showroom at High Point Market featuring their furniture lines designed by world-class designers, such as Thomas Pheasant and Laura Kirar. I was totally inspired to bring this sophisticated look home to use for my client projects! Each room led into another stunning room, showcasing the elegant, contemporary style I absolutely love. Although high-end, it’s still comfortable and approachable…ok maybe more for a family without toddlers.IMG_6654

This style is exquisite and suits both large and small spaces.IMG_6659 IMG_6660IMG_6656Let me know if I can help you create your own luxurious oasis!
