… to Cottages & Gardens for hosting the 5th annual Innovation in Design Awards (the IDA’s for those in the know!) on Tuesday.  Held at the Stamford Hilton in their Garden Pavilion, we dined under the stars (under a tent, at tables decorated with DuraLee fabric runners and Diane James flowers) amongst design stars and these little bees even had the honor of meeting Bunny Williams, Anthony Baratta, Philip Gorrivan and Matthew Patrick Smyth.

Calling All Designers!

Calling All Designers!

Needless to say, while the winners of each of the five categories (landscape, kitchen, bath, architecture and interior design) left with gorgeous Juliska trophies in hand, we left with stars in our eyes!

    I was supposed to be there and last night had to back out. Bummer. Sounds like such a lovely evening immersed in design happiness!
