As the Fall High Point Market comes to a close, I am thankful for having the opportunity to participate in two different panels discussing the challenges and rewards of pursuing projects in the hospitality sector along with sharing my experience in growing a successful business in the constantly evolving world of interior design.
The wealth of knowledge I came across at #highpointmarket has roused my imagination with numerous design combinations to incorporate into future hospitality projects and product collection.
Developing design concepts that bring to life the structure, history, and form of each piece of furniture while creating something still unique and modern for our collection is an aspiration of mine.
Walking through the #hospitalitymarket showrooms, I was fascinated by innovative furniture designs and wall décor, but I was truly captivated by the new larger than life showroom by the talented Christopher Guy.
One of my favorite pieces from the Christopher Guy collection was the unevenly shaped mirror arrangement that transforms the classic use of mirrors into a work of art.
And this Bellini Modern Living sideboard is sure to make a statement in any room. I can already see this piece in one of my future projects.
These are just some of the pieces I couldn’t wait to share. Look out for more of my favorite picks from the High Point Market as I take over the @DesignonHPMKT Instagram page with some of the gems I find at Market including Chad James! Chad and I had such a great time speaking together on the panel titled, “Passion Sucks, It’s All About the Money!”
You may have seen some of my top picks from High Point Market 2017 – but if you haven’t yet, check it out on Instagram – as you can see here, there were a talented group of designers involved, and it was such an honor to be in their company all week.

Finally, just in time for the beautiful weather, Fall Market at the Decorative Center of Houston is October 25th!! You also won’t want to miss my panel discussion on the use of natural stone!

Join me and other talented designers on October 25 at the ARIA Stone Gallery, they always throw a great party and enjoy being surrounded by breathtaking slabs of quartzite and marble as we discuss how to elevate and bring character to any design project using stone slabs.
I will be sharing some of my favorite stones and how I have been able to enhance my aesthetic using one of the earth’s natural and most resourceful materials!
