Sharing some seasonal favorite finds with Harvest hot color highlights! Truly some global greats from 2016….
Las Vegas Market-A Cross Section of Style
Just returned from the Las Vegas Market where manufacturers open up their showrooms to the trade. It was my first time at this market and the diversity of product available in hard as well as soft product was amazing! What I found most appealing was how easy it is to shop the three main buildings, as well as the annex tents, filled with gobal greats and antique treasures.
I know as a designer and curator of product, getting an overview of what’s available in the industry is not always easy, so attending this market allowed me to see first hand what the industry is offering in textiles, wall art, wallpaper, tabletop, lighting, furniture and accessories.
Allow me to share some of my “global greats” from The Las Vegas Market.
Classic Home-The perfect mix in texture showing textiles, accent frames and furniture.
Europe2You-Showcasing vintage and reclaimed home products from Europe with this serving board and these vintage dome accessory covers….the perfect example of what I call “rustic glam” style. Always fun to see more inspirational outdoor product from Seasonal Living in an array out updated color and style.

Cultivate 2015 “A Labor of Love”
Honored to be a Key Note speaker at Cultivate 2015 held in Columbus Ohio July 12-14. This is NOT a typical trade show it’s a labor of love❤️ and let me tell you why! After spending the past 2 days at Cultivate 2015, the largest horticulture show in North America, I got a “behind the scenes” peek into one of the most passionate industries in the world….breeders, growers, nursery owners, writers, media outposts and people affiliated with the beautification of this planet! I will never look at a flower or plant in the same way…so many talented minds and hands are responsible for creating these specimens…it’s actually mind blowing…honored to have met so many intelligent and dedicated people at Cultivate and look forward to learning more about this amazing industry through my new friends!
So proud of our HGTV HOME Plant Partners for creating a beautiful plant collection filled with succulents, flowering plants and the best custom mixed “one step style” assortments in the industry!
