Next stop on the agenda – May Studios on Long Island. The Blogfest 2011 crew was spoiled with a once-in-a-lifetime treat! Lee Jofa celebrated the launch of their new “Heritage Collection” by having 6 iconic interior designers design vignettes using fabrics from the collection. This party was hosted by Traditional Home.
Suzanne Kasler, David Easton, Diamond Baratta Design, Eric Cohler, Suzanne Rheinstein, and Thomas O’Brien were all in attendance. These designers were all gracious and autographed our very own “Inspired Styles” book published by Assouline.

After a day of battling the fog I finally arrived in NYC for day two of Blogfest 2011. Blogfest attendees received an up close look at the new Lilly Pulitzer home furnishings line with a preview and picnic in the Lee Jofa showroom.

I can’t get over the blues! I love the blue checkered pattern on the walls and all the pop of orange.
Growing up in the interior design industry, I have always heard of Barbara Barry and seen her breathtaking designs – but I never thought I would have the opportunity to hear her speak let alone meet her.

Barbara Barry introduced her new line of Kravet fabrics called “Indochine,” and we even tasted Barbara’s new delicious tea from Tea Leaves called “Citrine.” My it was quite the event!
Thank you Barbara, for your gracious spirit. You are a true inspiration!
Tomorrow, we recap our visit to Long Island with Lee Jofa’s Heritage Collection and my do I have a treat for you!
