TBT – We are not the king… but we know one!

When the drapes in Elvis’ Jungle Room needed to be replaced, Graceland came to us.

The pattern was recreated by Design Works International and the fabric was printed by First2Print.

If you happen to be in Memphis and stop by to see Graceland, take a selfie in the Jungle room and send it to us!!

Maison Objet Miami

I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical when I heard that Maison Objet, the French trade show for interior design that has taken place in Paris only, was having its debut in America in Miami May 2015. I decided to venture to Miami yesterday (twist my arm) and see what Maison & Objet (Americas) was all about.

Maison Objet in the Miami Beach Convention Center had just over 300 exhibitors from all over the world. The diversity ranged from high profile companies to new rising star artisans which gave the show a new twist to its more established show in Paris…think “Boutique Maison”!

The venvue was easy to navigate which left me with a few hours to explore the Miami Design District which too has grown over the years! With the success of Art Basel and the expansion of the Design District Miami does seem to be the right and natural choice for Maison in America!

Enjoy some of my highlights from my day at Maison Objet in America as well as images from the Miami Design District!

Las Vegas-Hardware Happiness

Hard to believe that I am in Las Vegas covering the National Hardware Show… who knew, right?

Well… actually, wrong because half the show consists of lawn and garden products and new innovations for the outdoors!

Since I curate the HGTV HOME OUTDOOR LIVING COLLECTIONS on HSN it’s important to attend these shows to see what is new both in product style and trend.

For me, I am always a fan of “Rustic Glam” maybe because I love Chip and JoAnna Gains, from Fixer Upper on HGTV!

But I also love bold color and contemporary styling for some backyard boldness…

I guess my point is… When you hear National Hardware Show…think again because half the shows focus is on lawn and garden and it ain’t just hardware!

Now you know!

See you next year in Vegas!

There are so many unique and creative places to shop for antiques and magical finds on the North Fork of Long Island. From Riverhead to Greenport, each little village has its own charm and personality!

First up is  Junque in Riverhead LI  where you can find some great midcentury modern lamps…right next door is Timeless Treasures with fun selections of vintage clothing and some smaller tabletop items! Next up Small Holdings Farm where you can humt for antique furniture, fun outdoor accessories and 100 year old beach glass in vintage jars. Last up in Jamesport, Material Objets where you can find a variety of unique and interesting treasures and be sure to visit their newest location on Sound Ave called Lumber and Salt!

One cannot shop on an empty stomach so may I suggest stopping at BRIERMERE FARMS for the most delicious pies…..baking since 1959 located in Riverhead LI. Try the apple crisp…..it’s a family favorite!

An added plus is that the North Fork is beautiful every season. Spring when all the flowers are blooming, summer when the fruits and veggies are ripe for picking, fall when the grapes are harvested and the farms are roasting freshly picked LI corn and in winter when it turns into a winter wonderland!
