Dining By Design DIFFA

Spring is in the air…well maybe today it actually felt otherwise, [raining all day in nyc] but the Architectural Digest Show and DIFFA Show opened today so for us designers…it’s pure sunshine🌞

Honored to be a judge for the IFDA [International Furniture Design Association] naming AVO best in show for their textile collection at the Architectural Digest Show. Hand woven leather textiles, hand-painted techniques combined with textural leathers represented an true artisan vibe…congratulations to Brit Kleinmann, founder and creative director of AVO @_avoavo_

Verto Vero, the award winning glassblowing studio based in Pennsylvania was showcasing glass vessels in contemporary styles and colors. Always a favorite of mine at the Architectural Digest Show!

Jan Kath’s rug collection showed a bit of whimsy with a subtle skull design woven into her more traditional line of rugs.

Bringing the outdoors indoors continues among many home product categories especially within the kitchen industry. Signature Kitchen showcased a green inspired vibe with a variety of plants as the focal point of their products.

Speaking of green….Opiary incorporates natural elements into every piece created, bringing live greenery and organic shapes into sleek highly crafted furniture, planters and sculpture. Every piece is hand crafted from recyclable and natural materials by artists and craftspeople at their studio in East Williamsburg, NY.

London Basin Company is bringing back the beautiful basin offering so many creative basin options through color, pattern and texture.

A sunny shoutout to Hesten for making us all smile with their yellow appliances!

The AD Apartment is an awesome collaboration designed by Sasha Bikoff, presented by Gaggenau, featuring Ad Pro, Brizo, Calligaris, Dekton by Cosentino, Dyson, Emtek, Lenox, Livex Lighting, Lumber Liquidators, Mayflower Wallpaper, Reform, Shimmerscreen and Tuft & Needle.

Stays In Vegas…The IRE Show (International Roofing Expo) was held March 1-3 2017 at the Mandalay Convention Center focusing on the latest trends, advances in technology and the best practices for business growth in the roofing industry.

Honored to give a Trend Session on Global Greats and meet some of GAF’s residential and commercial contractors while talking about the GAF On-Line Style Guide @gaf.com/styleguide We talked about the relationship between the roof as an exterior element that reflects the sensibility of interior elements in the home…take Terra, our global lifestyle that emulates a more curated and collected lifestyle gathering interior items from your travels while mixing and matching them in your home. Glenwood Golden Prairie and Timberline HD Barkwood are both excellent examples that are part of our Terra Trend!

Awesome having Guy Fieri join us from the Food Network and cook his signature burger at the GAF evening party…by the pool at Mandalay Bay!

It’s not your grandfather’s roof any more as GAF has so many updated colors, textures and shapes that can redefine your roofing style!

Remember your roof really sets the trend for the rest of your home so why not enjoy the many roofing possibilities that GAF has to offer…visit us @gaf.com/styleguide

Collaborating Style with GAF

Honored to be working along side GAF on the re-launch of their GAF Style Guide on GAF.com Our focus is the lifestyle shift of “bringing the indoors, outdoors”, a trend in home design today!

Founded in 1886, GAF is the largest roofing manufacturer in North America. The company’s products include a comprehensive portfolio of steep-slope and commercial roofing systems, which are supported by an extensive national network of factory-certified contractors.

The new GAF Style Guide is a resource that helps homeowners select shingles that best match their personal style with their exterior home portfolio.

The style guide can be found at http://www.gaf.com/style.

In today’s world, we have seen a major lifestyle shift in “bringing the indoors, outdoors” so a paramount design decision like choosing the color and substrate of your roof is now being influenced by your lifestyle. Color as well as texture are factors to consider while making this…

Well it’s that “day” of the year again #love, when we all overload on everything red, beautiful flowers and various types of chocolate surprises…but for those more interested in “one of a kind homes” check out my house spotting find in Wales last October…Sending a different kind of #love this year! Lots of color and creativity but no chaos!

” Frankfurt Trend Find”

Me again…posting from Frankfurt and had to share my “Frankfurt Trend Find”…who knew that Acid Yellow would be trending in this small village outside of downtown Frankfurt. I love when I explore places off the beaten track and stumble upon a trend find like this..so good that I am updating my KBIS trend presentation next week for my HGTV 2015 Trends in Las Vegas and updating my “Acid Yellow” slide with this very groovy trend-right yellow house. Had to update you on the “Color” part of my Chaos and Creativity! More to follow as Heimtextil opens today…more trend ahead!
