It’s that time again, Design & Construction Week in Las Vegas! Having just one year under it’s belt, this year is proving to be the biggest and best yet. With five trade shows in five days, yes I said F I V E… Las Vegas is forecasting more than 125,00 design professionals to flood the city. I can’t wait to see all this week has to offer between new products, networking events, and educational opportunities. The best part of all, it takes place in my backyard.
If I’m ever lacking creativity or need a rush of artistic insight, beauty tips, a fashion update, and pretty much anything under the sun… I look to Pinterest. It’s my go-to site and houses over 5,000 ideas I’ve collected since joining. I love the fact that I can easily organize projects, have the ability to “hide” ideas and sources with those sneaky secret boards, as well as share links with friends, family, and even my clients. No matter how busy my week has been, I always fit Pinterest into my schedule. Here are some of my latest pins.
One of the most exciting parts of what I do is witnessing the progression of a project, to keep track of it’s growth on my trusty iPhone camera, and to breathe life to a once dead space. “Currently Working On” will probably be one of my favorite blog categories because I can share the story behind every design. I’m happy to post my first “CWO” blog featuring a project that holds a special place in my heart.
The much anticipated announcement of Pantone’s Color of the Year 2015 was declared last week as Marsala. As Pantone puts it, “Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness.”
