On my way back from Viva Las Vegas I kept smiling on the drive to Orange County because of all the memories and collaborations that were made – luckily I have my sweet hubby to drive while I jotted down my notes from the Las Vegas Market – multi-tasking!
Las Vegas Market was a super busy market for me as I not only had the Design Campus Live showroom tour and summit to host, but I was also asked to be part of the #LVMKT #instagramtakeover. On top of that, I had two clients join me at market on two separate days.
Not to mention, some filming Lori Dennis and I did for Design Time, a short TV segment that will launch on Designcampus.com very soon! Oh, I’m starting to get tired again just thinking about it!
Las Vegas Market would not have started off right without meeting up with my favorite boys though. I had so much fun kicking off Las Vegas Market with Christopher Kennedy and Carson Kressley!
Rise and shine! My first client I shopped with at the Las Vegas Market is going for an all modern look for her home in Southern California. Where do you take someone looking for ultra chic and modern home furnishings? Sunpan Modern of course! Below are some of our favorite pieces this season!
My next clients, also based in Southern California, are putting the last final details on their 9,000 sq. ft. home, the second home I’ve had the privilege to work on with them. Their new home, which has a modern Mediterranean feel, is vastly different from their last, so of course we had to go shopping for all new furnishings and accessories! The couple recently welcomed a gorgeous baby girl who ended up being the lead designer of the new home – can we say beautiful and baby proof!
After two long days of shopping, there was no better place to grab a drink and unwind than the Leftbank Art Cocktail Party, celebrating Kelly O’Neal’s new line for the company. Leftbank, of course, had their signature French martinis on hand. YUM!
Design Campus is a big supporter of the Gift For Life and DIFFA foundations whose main purpose is to raise money for the treatment, education and prevention of HIV/AIDS. We joined the Las Vegas Market at the 5th annual ‘Up on the Roof’ fundraiser and reception to support the wonderful cause. It was so great to see so many of our friends support the cause too!
Stay tuned for next week as I take the Design Campus Live Showroom Tour and share my favorite companies and products at the Las Vegas Market!
