Save the Date--Serving Up Style October 2012

Hello Everyone!
I am so excited to announce that said has been selected to participate in the 2012 Serving Up Style event at the Fall Home and Garden Show, October 4th through 7th at the Expo Center.  This is the Northwest's premier table top design competition, and raises money for such a great cause, Molly's Fund whose mission is fighting Lupus, a devastating disease that affects millions around the world.  I have had the privilege of meeting David Szyplinski and Debbie McCabe, creators of Molly's fund and Serving Up Style and they have worked tirelessly to make this an event that is capturing national attention.  HGTV and Houzz will both be at this years event, so you can imagine that we are pretty excited to be chosen as one of 20 designers in this years design competition!  Each designer is invited to create fantastic, whimsical and stunning dining room environments, and you, the visitors to Serving Up Style will have the opportunity to vote on your favorite room design. 

We are busy working on the design concept for our dining room--I have several ideas I'm currently working on with my design team, and I can't wait to share them with you!

First Friday of the Season!!

We are excited to welcome spring with a very special First Friday event on Friday May 4 from 5 to 9.  We will be welcoming photographer Kim Campbell and her magical series of El Corazon photographs.  El Corazon means heart in spanish.  We also cant wait to show you what is new at said and to help you with your next design project, from paint to furniture!!

I had the lucky experience of taking my granddaughter Lola for a photography session with Kim and I don't know who had more fun, me or Lola!  It was three hours of imagination, dress up and transportation to another world.  Kim captures that imagination in children from ages 5 to 12, when the dream world is still vivid and translates it into the photographs that she you will see at this First Friday event.  We can't wait to share this experience with you.  Go to Kim's blog to see examples of her fantastic work.
