It’s frenetic around here today.  All of those last minute details for design and construction projects have to be complete before I hop on a plane EARLY tomorrow morning and head to High Point.

I rushed around this morning to a few construction sites to finalize stair railings, paint and wood stain samples.



It will all be done when I return on Thursday of next week and there is no turning back now…..eeek!  So excited.

I am also over the moon because this High Point market includes several “firsts” for me.  I have been named a High Point Style Spotter along with many of my favorite designers, bloggers and design celebrities.



This means I will be making my way to many of the great showrooms in High Point and pinning my TOP trends and designs to my HPMKT Pinterest Board.  PLEASE FOLLOW NOW if you haven’t already so you can see the latest and greatest from High Point.  Want more details on what it means to be a Style Spotter – check out this great post from my friend Lisa Mende.


I will also be speaking for the first time at High Point at the Antiques and Design Center on Monday at 4:00pm.

If you are at market, please, please, please drop by at the end of the day Monday and take a load off.  I will be sharing how YOU can Design with a Deadline using antiques and I will be highlighting not only my favorite stops for vintage and antique items in High Point, but also a few of my finds from my recent trip to Italy shopping with The Antiques Diva and Co.  This is my first time to speak at High Point and I would love to see you there.

Make sure you are following me on Instagram and Facebook and Twitter for all those party pics.  I will be posting there as well.  For now I am signing off to put last minute touches on a presentation for a client and pack….oh yeah.  There’s that….



Haute in Memphis with Brizo

My summer vacation month is in full swing and while I have been able to fit in a few work projects, the next 10 days are filled with travel for me. First to Memphis and then on to St. John and the British Virgin Islands for our annual family vacation.

I am so excited about my trip tomorrow for the Brizo Blogger 19 Reunion in Memphis.  There are over 75 design bloggers landing in the South to reunite (all expenses paid) with a tour of the Brizo factory and an event at St. Judes Childrens Hospital and Target House.

Being on the list of the Blogger 19 is a huge honor and one that I do not take lightly.  During my original trip to NY with one of the groups and Mr. Jason Wu too, Mr. Beckley went along and we interviewed the president of Brizo HERE

So much has happened since then for Brizo and I can’t wait to hear more about the latest new productsand designs they have up their sleeve.

I will be posting up to the minute images from the event on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, so follow along there to keep up with the fun….all for a good cause.  I am resisting the urge to pack my blue suede shoes and fit in a tour of Graceland.
