#DiamondsOfDesign Vignette- AmericasMart 2017

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

I came back from Atlanta last week just in time to bypass getting stuck in the snowstorm that hit the Southeast.   We only had a dusting, but it was the ice that closed us down.

 

I was in Atlanta setting up my #DiamondsOfDesign vignette for the AmericasMart market that begins today.   It is their 60th anniversary and to celebrate, they had 10 designers from across the country create spaces based upon a style icon from the past 60 years.  I chose design icon David Hicks because of his mix of elements, his love of new and old pieces, and his bold use of pattern.   His rooms in the 60s and 70s were always beautiful, warm, collected, and many times, bold.

RestyleSource was kind enough to do an interview with all of the designers.  If you would like to know a few of our favorite things, you can read about them here.  Don’t judge that I like a home-cooked meal, as long as it isn’t cooked by me.  Ha!

 

Each designer’s space is made up of pieces curated from the vendors at market.  I am loving the addition of antiques to the AmericasMart as I like a “collected” look in any space- even if it is newly designed.

 

The space is only 10′ x 10′ in size, and I knew I wanted some sort of library or sitting room feel.  Something warm, and collected, and a space that makes you want to sit down and stay for awhile.

 

I began by selecting this wallpaper from Schumacher for the walls.

They were gracious to donate it as well as this IKAT fabric for pillows for the sofa.

Lots of vendors lent us pieces for my vignette.  Everything from a loveseat to lamps to art to accessories to books make up my space.   I can’t show the finished product yet, but here are a few quick snapshots of my vignette.

Hi Everyone!   I am excited to head over to Atlanta later tomorrow for market.   The AmericasMart marketing team has asked me, along with a few other southern designers, to come in this weekend and let you know through social media what my favorite pieces are in the show.

 

The weekend is jammed packed with lots going on, and I am looking forward to sharing my favorite products and trends for 2015 with you.   I always enjoy catching up with my friends in the design world, so the lunches and dinners will be a lot of fun, too.

 

My friend, Stacy Kunstel of Dunes and Duchess, has given me a sneak peek of their new 42″ upholstered ottoman.  Isn’t it incredible?!   The fabric pictured is Tillett/T4, a favorite fabric line of Jackie Kennedy.

It would be perfect in so many settings as the fabric you choose could completely change its look.

See?  It reminds me of this vintage piece below I found for this living room I designed several years ago. Upholstering the ottoman in leather or velvet would completely change its look.

On Friday night, I’ll be attending the Portman White party, where architect and developer John Portman will be honored with a design exhibition in honor of his signature paint color, Portman White Sherwin Williams-PW240. The vignette gallery will feature unique vignettes by seven acclaimed interior designers: Brian Patrick Flynn, Michelle Workman, Stan Topol, Michel Boyd, Niki Papadopoulos and Kerry Howard. I am excited to see how these tastemakers show the Portman White paint color and featured products sourced throughout AmericasMart.

 

Make sure you’re following me on social media so you can see all my posts of the “Best of the Best” from the showrooms.
