As I write this I’m in NYC for a series of PR and marketing meetings on my top secret new furniture line The Antiques Diva Collection for Aidan Gray Home, and heading out tomorrow for Fall HPMKT (get the details here: I’ll be leading a Happy Hour Tour at the Antiques & Design Center on Friday at 4pm, have office hours at the Aidan Gray showroom from 2-4pm on Saturday, on Sunday at 10am morning I’ll be at Theodore Alexander, introducing their illustrious all-new Castle Bromwich Echoes collection! Plus on Sunday I’ll be doing an HPMKT Instagram Takeover – #DivaStyle! If you haven’t been, High Point Market is nothing but fun and hard work and great people and fabulous design! (And in case you’re worried I’m working too hard, after Market I’m heading south to Key West for a bit of R&R with a few of my besties from our Paris days! Sadly, laptop, iPhone, and sketchbook will never be far away…)
The newest MUST-DO in the design world is Southern Style Now! Last year I attended the inaugural SSN in New Orleans, where not only did I hear fabulous speakers, see the latest in Southern design style and trends, make a few mega-contacts, and eat and drink fabulous N’awlins style cuisine, I also led a walking tour of New Orlean’s premier antiques and design neighborhood with the fabulous Shaun Smith!
Southern Style Now Festival and Showhouse
This year, Southern Style Now being held in one of my favorite cities, Savannah, from November 9-11, 2017. Southern Style Now is ideal for interior design professionals, and it’s open to the public: so it’s not too late to get your tickets and get your Southern on! This year’s festival is packed with dynamic speakers, discussions, trolley tours, book signings, and of course, parties!
This year’s keynote speakers are covering design topics on everything from their design inspiration to decorating outdoors to entertaining Southern style to what designers really think about their clients!
