on with the show
hey guys, i was about to sit down with a stack of paperwork but then i thought: you do that all day, why not do something more creative that you actually enjoy? i’m almost guilty, like i have to have all my work done before i can blog which is a bit of RnR for me. it’s weird! so…the paperwork will wait til domani and i can have a little time here.
i’ve been pretty busy, but also reaping the relaxing rewards at the end (or beginning) of the day. it’s such a dream to live on this beach. it is SuPer HoT and i love it!
but as usual, nyc is calling me back right in the middle of the summer. i guess you can’t chill in paradise forever. if it wasn’t for a great reason i just couldn’t do it, but i had an offer i couldn’t refuse. i’ll be there for about 3 weeks in a minute to do the nygif show with leigh from papillion linens.
leigh sent me a set of dreamfit sheets to try out, they’re amazingly soft and organic to boot
i knew her line from past shows and always admired her collection. (she was the first to do smocked top curtains). when i posted a photo of hers we started to chat and became fast blog buds. turns out we had tons in common. when she asked me to use some of my pieces for her booth i about died. the show is impossible to get into and her booth is across from kelly wearstler for Sferra and john robshaw. and that’s just the tip of that iceberg!
she’s such a pro. instead of sweating it she hired id810designgroup.com to help her plan out the booth. (it was their brilliant idea to use lucite, lucky me). i’ll meet the girls when i get to the city and everything comes together. they have great style and i’m excited to see the details they have planned.
so i’ve been getting my site fattened up and working on making the pieces.
we’ll be using the bookcase for displaying her gorgeous linen linens,
and we’re using semi-precious stone chandeliers to accent each area
between the beds, over the desk
and in the seating area (this one will be hot pinks)
the above are some of the stones the artist, meredith uses to make the chandi’s.
and you may remember these staples from the a.d show. but leigh’s going to show them in linen upholstery, navy and schiaparelli pink! (total non sequitir: schiaparelli.com is fabulous! i just discovered it when i googled the spelling of her name)
anyway there are countless other details but that’s it for tonite. i think i’ve had it and need to kick back, my RnR looks a lot like work, good thing i love my work! have a great night!
