Spring has been really busy around here and it seems to be flying by faster than usual. Here’s some of what’s happening.
First, as you may have seen from how I flooded my Instagram feed (@FromTheRightBank), the 2014 ASOS Decorators’ Showhouse is now open. Like every year, it has more inspiration than you can handle – like this solarium designed by Robert Brown. The house itself is a historic piece of Atlanta architecture and an opportunity to have a tour of it is a real treat. The showhouse is open until May 18 and you can get more details and ticket information here.
Second, mark your calendars for the first ever Designer Stock Exchange (DSE). It’s an epic designer/blogger tag sale that will be held in Atlanta on May 31 and June 1, 2014. A group of designers/bloggers and I will be selling everything from furniture to textiles to accessories and having some fun in the process. So please join us!
Next, I’m both excited and a little terrified that I’m going to be making my first TV appearance. (What?!) A little while ago, the very nice folks at CNN/HLN contacted me about doing a decorating segment for the Project Home feature on HLN. We had a meeting last month and just like that, we’re taping next month. YIKES. (As a side note, up until then I had never been to the CNN Headquarters. Have you? It’s massive!)
I’m thrilled, of course, but there’s nothing like an imminent appearance on national television to shed light on all of one’s insecurities! Am I going to be a total dud? Does the camera really add ten pounds? Will I sound like Minnie Mouse? (Does anyone like the sound of their own voice?) I tell you I don’t know how all those housewives and Kardashians live their lives in front of cameras….. Anyway, I’ll keep you posted as things happen.
Finally, I’m working on a great giveaway that I know you are all going to want to enter. That’s coming up in a couple of weeks. As I said, there is a lot going on!
