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. This June, she had the pleasure of being flown out to the WithIt 2017 Annual Professional Women’s Conference for the Home and Furnishings Industries, in Charleston, SC. Here she had the opportunity to listen to many keynote speakers, given by influential women in the industry. The impressive list included Eleanor Beaton, President and CEO of Impact & Influence for Women, Carol Sankar, author of The Confidence Factor For Women in Business, Lynne Jensen-Nelson, Conversion-omics Sales Training, and many more influential interior designers, decorators and home furnishing industry icons.
Team LED finds inspiration wherever we go, and luckily we all have the opportunity to travel quite a bit! We hand picked a few photos that inspire us and we want to share our favorite travel moments with you.
Have you caught the decorating bug? It’s always the same story. Once you start planning out a new project, you suddenly start to see elements in other rooms that you’d like to change too. Do you really have the time and ability to decorate more than one room at a time?
Whilst living in Barcelona, I saw mini cacti being sold all over La Rambla, and I quickly developed a love for our prickly friends. They make any space feel so airy and light. There are so many types and colors to play around with, as well as some neat display options. My personal favorites are minimalist wall art pieces, terrariums that either sit on display or even hang from the ceiling, and the unique ceramic pieces that house multiple baby cacti. Much like my two head vases I filled with my own mini cacti garden just the other day!
What drives you to get involved in your community? Not only do we love being a part of projects that benefit Las Vegas and the youth, but team LED is driven to volunteer for a variety of reasons. We interviewed our team on why we’re each thrilled to be involved with the Las Vegas Showcase House and where that passion stems from.
Every year HD Expo comes to Vegas, and we get to go! This hospitality design event brings the newest and greatest hospitality and commercial design products together. Just like we do during Las Vegas Market, we gathered together our favorite parts of the show.
Boy oh boy have we got some great home décor elements you can add to any room! We’ve dubbed them our “May Must-haves.” You may want to get that credit card handy because we’re pretty sure you’re going to have a hard time saying no to these stellar, new pieces.
As decorators and designers, we’re always on the lookout for inspiration wherever we go. You never know when the perfect colors of the sunset will inspire the next color palette in a master bedroom or the movement of the wallpaper in a hotel lobby will have you yearning to complete a custom fabric for a few throw pillows. Either way, here are a few images that team LED found inspiring!
We want to thank Nevada Women’s Business Center for inviting us to be a part of their panel of speakers to discuss social entrepreneurship last week! While our team was spread across the country completing projects out of state, Austrie represented Lisa Escobar Design on a panel discussion to chat about our approach to social entrepreneurship. With so many amazing women in business here in Las Vegas, we’re so proud to be able to participate in such events! Check out the video HERE!
