My 5 Favorite Moments from Blogfest

Blogfest, an annual conference held in NYC for design bloggers, was such a blast. I had the chance to think about ways to expand this beloved blog right here, as well as connect with some of the bloggers I've been following on Twitter for so long. My favorite moments from the conference are.....drumroll please:

1. Meeting Chuck Fischer at the Kips Bay Decorator Show House and enjoying his explanation of the room he designed. I loved his idea of using the space on the back of doors as bulletin boards. So clever.

2. I would have never thought to use an antique tripod as a TV stand, and that's just what was done in the Kips Bay Decorator Show House room designed by Charles Pavarini III.

3. Going on a tour of the Elle Decor Modern Life Concept House and taking in this fab room that Lee Kleinhelter of the Atlanta-based home furnishings shop, Pieces, designed. The yellow and gold accents were just perfect for the space.

4. Since a good portion of the events were held in the D&D Building, I took the opportunity to visit the Ralph Lauren Home showroom and fell in love with this arrangement. The mirror was my favorite piece here, and the use of black just made the space feel extra glam.

5. Blogfest ended with a fun party (with endless amounts of fried chicken and cornbread for guests...ha) at the New Traditonalists' showroom. And despite the crowd, this headboard caught my attention.
