Back from #BlogTourLA!

I am just about getting over my souvenir jet lag from my recent trip to southern California via #BlogTourLA. Our exclusive tour of the LA design scene was both creatively inspiring and mentally relaxing – the ultimate laid-back West Coast get away! I arrived back in Boston late Sunday night and was surprised at home with a fresh bottle of Sauvignon Blanc chilling on the dining room table, set next to a dish piled high with Cheez-It crackers (my boys – and husband – know me so well!) While I sort through five days worth of BlogTour photos, here is a link to my first guest post written for Williams-Sonoma Designer Marketplace that went online while I was away. By blogger coincidence (as in there are no coincidences?) I got to spend the week with another blog writer in the WS Designer Marketplace roster, Mindy Miles Greenberg, a New York based designer who pens Encore Decor (seen in the picture above with me on the left and Will Taylor of the UK blog Bright.Bazaar on the right).

I had so much fun getting to know my fellow design bloggers during our days together in the California sunshine. Come back soon to see photos from our visit to the WestEdge Design Fair and many colorful design stops along the way. Special thanks goes to Veronika Miller of Modenus, for getting us all together for this fabulous brand-curated event, filled with memories to last a lifetime!

  1. Those green-y glass lamps with black shades are calling my name; almost positive that I can't afford them. :( Looks like a great time and congrats on the WS piece.

    1. I saw lots of places you would love to shop in, Laura! Stay tuned for more designer eye candy!

  2. Lovely meeting you Yvonne. Hope the jet lag is now over? Have a wonderful weekend. x

    1. I'm feeling back to New England normal, Geraldine! So enjoyed experiencing #BlogTourLA with you and the others!
