Stanley Furniture meets Woodson & Rummerfield at High Point Market

I am literally counting down the days till High Point Market. I always look forward to my time with my favorite designers in the industry. It's a blast. Not only is it a blast, you get to see the latest and greatest in the design world. I've posted about last years market here
This year my former bosses (woodson & rummerfield house of design) + extended fam have partnered with Stanley Furniture to revamp their showrooms. This collaboration is kind of major. Here are a few shots of the showroom they revamped for Las Vegas Market, which blew everyone away...
 I just loved this eclectic art wall. 
They really turned out the showroom to a whole other level. Now, I keep watching the facebook + twitter for snaps of the inspiration for the new High Point Showroom and I am already in love. 
Emeralds. Gold. Black and white. Its looking good! 
Who is coming to High Point Market? I'll be giving a tour that you can sign up for, let me know and I'll get you details! 

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Real Estate

Right before I moved to New York (almost two years I was finishing up a project when I was working for Woodson and Rummerfield House of Design. They had the ultimate job of designing the model units for the Ritz Carlton Residences in downtown LA. It was beyond an awesome job, I had the BEST time. Then, the other day I was watching Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and the real estate was being shown. How amazing would it be to live here...

 First of all W and R are such talented and amazing designers so it would be a dream to live anywhere they adorn. Secondly, I've been working with a real estate expert (trying to learn some things for a business my dad and I are working on) and they advised that the insurance on the place would be ridiculous but with all of the amazing pieces in this place, contents insurance is ridiculously necessary. 
 Other than that...this might be my perfect apartment.

A little SYTLE HAUS shout out...

One of the best things about working for an amazing design firm (like my incredible former bosses + mentors, Woodson + Rummerfield) is getting to know your co-workers and watching them blossom...
Ron and Jaime are probably the most incredibly talented and sweet bosses/mentors in the world. They not only teach but they encourage, which was such a blessing for me to experience. 
Case-in-point: one of my very sweet co-workers Ryan Saghian, is now an up and coming LA designer and is getting some Hollywood decor street cred. He teamed up with the latest craze in LA celeb stylists and worked his magic over at STYLE HAUS
It's a super swanky membership only shopping experience...
Naturally, I love his style, I mean, we spawned from the same geniuses...
 I am OBSESSED with the custom made velvet demi-lune sofa and those gorgeous black louis chairs. So chic.

 Of course he would understand the necessity of a bar cart when it comes to Hollywood Glamour.
 And to top it off... a dash of red, I swear that is the secret to decorating well.
