The Las Vegas Market Summer edition held at the Las Vegas Design Center is nearing in just two short weeks, we thought we’d pass along some helpful tips to those of you attending! With more new resources, showrooms and products than ever before, this will be the biggest and best market yet! There are over 5 million square feet of showroom space with outstanding products and inspiration, that means A LOT of walking! This brings us to Tip #1 … wear your most comfy shoes! (or bring a change of flats) Seriously, I’ve been there and it’s NOT a good idea to follow the “fashion over comfort” rule in this case. There’s nothing worse than hobbling from showroom to showroom in utter pain, it’s just not a good look. Something that goes hand in hand with this tip is to wear layers. Outside may be 110 degrees, however it can get chilly inside. A small summer scarf or wrap usually handles the AC draft.
We are bringing you our second Confident. Fearless. Inspired. guest here at All Por Ju! San Diego based, Michaela Sahallenberger, owner & creator of Studio von Berg, has so willingly lent us her artistic mind to share her latest creations with all of our readers. She specializes in calligraphy and illustration all while dabbling in paint and flowers, and we’re excited to introduce her to all of you!
Elle Decor recently published a post titled “How to Decorate With Polk Dots Like An Adult” and I was totally inspired by it! I mean, just look at this art piece- it screams classy.
For me, Mother Nature is the most profound inspiration when it comes to design. Everyday I am amused by the beauty she shows me. From the simplest objects such as a textured leaf, to the intricate markings of a leopard… I am never left without wonder. I love observing the shapes of clouds, the stars alignment at night, the way the sunlight reflects off seashells as water passes over them. With summer in full effect, I am crushing on anything and everything iridescent. How could you not?!
Check out what I’ve been Pinning these days… lots of cozy spaces with minimal color and maximum style, lounging pool floaties with tons of personality, and a wonderful reminder of the history that took place earlier this week in the USA… #LOVEWINS!
I wait all year for June to arrive. I look forward to the upcoming summer, plan weekend road trips to visit friends in new places, and make changes to bring that “summer vibe” home with me. Now is the time to set the mood for your entire summer! There are a variety of ways we can freshen-up the ambiance and décor of our home to attain that summer-time vibe, not only on vacation, but also at home 24/7. No more vacation blues for us!
A few weeks ago I interviewed style and fashion blogger Stevie Henderson for the first installment of Confident. Fearless. Inspired. (If you missed it or need a refresher, here you go!) Since then I’ve thought about the style tips she gave us and the décor she said she’d love to have in her home. With Stevie’s suggestions in mind (black, white, simple, minimal patterns and color) I browsed a few of my fave online décor shops and threw together a few things I thought she may like. Here you go Stevie, a little design love All Por Ju! Hope you enjoy!
I spent my Memorial Day different than most, instead of pool parties and BBQs I had the opportunity of visiting Nicole Taylor Sharp and Mark Weinberger on their talk radio show, Spotlight on Vegas Business. What an experience it was! Upon arrival I met a few other local business owners… Dave Olesczuk from Fitbody Bootcamp, Lia from Belia Beauty and Skin Care (such a sweetheart, she donates her time and services to Cancer patients…my Mom will be seeing her soon for an oncology facial!) and finally Ruth Furman of Imagewords, a PR Queen and friend of mine.
During my interview with Nicole and Mark on SPOTLIGHT ON VEGAS BUSINESS, I gave some tips on how to add interest to your home with the first day of summer officially approaching next month. I promised some really great pieces and here they are without further ado…. plus a few more items I’d love to add to my home décor.
A few weeks ago I attended the largest furniture show around, High Point Market in North Carolina. It was a trip full of information, growth and networking! I managed to snap over 140 images from my phone in the one day that Amber and I dedicated to seeing what was new and exciting in the world of interior design and décor. I’ve curated the best of the best for you and I’m sharing them over the course of a few different blogs. If you haven’t had the chance to read Part 1, get caught up HERE.
