I think I have mentioned a time or 2 that I have been a designer for over 20 years. All of my career has been in Atlanta so you can imagine I have many sources available to help bring a project together. For you. In case you need help.
Since Atlanta is chock full of designers.....I pride myself in striving to give my clients a room that is worth spending their hard earned money on as well as help them freshen up their space with the latest in design.
One resource that I use for every project is ADAC [which happens to be 1 mile from my house....whoop!]. There are design centers located in most big cities across the country, DD Building [NYC], Dania Design Center [Miami], and Pacific Design Center [LA]. They are all open to the public.
In October ADAC [previously exclusive to the trade only] will now be open as well. It is 550,000 sq ft of showrooms that carry fabrics, lighting, furniture, art, and well...just about everything you need to help decorate a space and find inspiration.
What does this mean? Well for one thing they host events which include many well known designers sharing their insights on design. It will also allow you to go in to the various showrooms to see the latest trends. Even though you can't purchase, that can be done only through your friendly designer :) [who could that be?] you can still see all of the beautiful things I see on a daily basis.
WARNING: Could cause more indecisive moments than you already have and impair the ability to move forward with design decisions
Now.....what are they doing to roll out the red carpet and get you inspired?? A host of events starting October 4.
You might notice on October 10th there is a little event called
"Trend Spotting with Atlanta's Top Design Bloggers"
Yup.....they have asked me to join Erika, Cristi, Wendy, Helen and Claire to spill the beans about design [oh gosh what will I say?] and who does their waxing. OK...I made that last part up....but sometimes aren't you afraid someone is going to slip with that wax and you are going to hear a loud UH OH. I mean there is a fine line between a little light eyebrow penciling and looking like Joan Crawford.
She used a whole crayon there.
In case you can't read...some of the other speakers are:
William Peace October 4th 10:00
Danielle Rollins October 4th 2:00
Brian Patrick Flynn October 5th 10:00
And a host of others that I am sure you will enjoy!
So get your design on people!
