But don’t despair, there’s plenty of ways to make the room your own, and make it suit your needs.
As designers, we are always looking to get a jump start on applying future trends to our work to keep things fresh and exciting. It’s our job, as designers, to know what trends will stay timeless for our clients and transform their space into a place they can enjoy now and in the future.
This year, in honor of WithIt’s 20th anniversary, student educational scholarships were awarded to women studying to be a part of the design industry. One of these recipients was our youngest team member, Hannah Carlton.

As a design team, it was also a privilege to interact with visitors who stopped by to see our plans for the master bedroom and master bath in Las Vegas’ historic Scotch 80s area.
Las Vegas Market boasts of wonderful events, happening parties and of course great design. We told you about our team’s favorite moments of LVMKT here, but we definitely need to elaborate on the amazing opportunity Lisa had to speak as part of the WithIt panel featuring social media celebrities at the Somerton Dwelling showroom at Las Vegas Market earlier this month. As a team, we’ve attended some pretty fantastic events hosted by The Media Matters – one being a farm to table dinner at the Woodard Furniture showroom along with elite editors from various publications during High Point Market last April.
