What’s New…

Windsor Smith - Backyard Beauty

What’s Next?  According to designer Windsor Smith, it’s the launch of her new outdoor fabric line with Kravet.  We had the chance to hear Windsor being interviewed by Pamela Jaccarino, Editor in Chief of LUXE Magazine, on Tuesday and see her new collection for ourselves.  Many of the designs are based on Windsor’s most popular indoor fabrics and have been tested to last the test of time (40,000 “rubs”!)

As we sat there nodding and smiling at what Windsor had to say, we jotted down a few memorable quotes such as “furniture should be like a member of your family; even the precious needs to be approachable.”

A Fabulous Foyer

“A designer should be part therapist, part shaman, and very funny (you have to be to slide those bills through!)… and above all, a facilitator of great experiences.”

"Tell Me About Your Childhood..."

“In designing a house, you should look at how you live today and how you can support that lifestyle with beautiful things.”

Pretty Petals

When asked which room she’d do away with, this self-described “lifestyle architect” immediately answered “the formal living room.”  She turned hers into a place where her teenage boys can hang, replete with comfy couches and a ping pong table.

Magnificent Man Cave

While we’re not ready to be so bold, we’re definitely thinking of tapping Windsor’s style and having her design some rooms.  With her Room in a Box website, that just may be possible!

Easy as 1, 2, 3

Were You @ Blogfest?

… to Beth Greene, Vice President of Marketing, and her team at Kravet for organizing Blogfest 2011, three days of lunches, cocktails parties, tours and panel discussions celebrating the impact of bloggers on the design industry.  No doubt a huge amount of work went into organizing the events and no detail went overlooked.

From the fabulous food and swag bags to the chance to hear editors and designers speak about their craft, to (finally!) getting to meet in person the bloggers we’ve been following for ages…  We’d say Blogfest 2011 was a great success!
