on point: Highpoint Market favorites

If you are a residential designer, Highpoint Market is like Mecca – you absolutely have to make the trip!  If you can’t attend the next best thing is to follow along virtually.  The hashtag #HPMKT on Instagram has nearly 60K posts of new products and inspiration.  Based on personal preference and post popularity, here are my picks on this Spring’s market winners.

HOT NEW WALLPAPER

Detroit Wallpaper stole the show with their brightly colored geometric patterns.  I obviously have immense love for the Mitten State and am happy to see the success of yet another amazing Detroit business!

BRASS & SASS

It’s no surprise that gold tones were a huge hit.

to market we go

A couple of weeks ago, we took a company trip up to Dallas for one of the best perks of being a designer: Market.  Yes, I get paid to shop.  But after conquering a 15 floor building and also a chunk of the Dallas Design District in 2 short days, it can get a just a little bit tiring and overwhelming.  I’ve since recovered and am excited to share the experience with you. 🙂

My boss surprised us and upgraded our hotel reservations to none other than the hottest boutique hotel, Hotel ZaZa.  Word is that Drake was staying there at the same time as us, and after some brief Instagram-stalking, we are 95% sure we saw his dad in the lobby.  Dinner at Dragonfly was seriously one of the best meals of my life and it will definitely be on my hit list next time I’m in the D.
