Recap Of BlogFest 2013 From The Portland Based Interior Designer & Firm Owner, Garrison Hullinger

The Happenings At Blogfest 2013   This was the first Blogfest that I had ever attended and didn't really know what you expect, because normally I'm the one headed to market and other networking events. To my surprise, Blogfest allowed me to network with a totally different group of people that I normally don't get the opportunity of meeting...Design Bloggers!

Jonathan Adler Store in Uptown NYC 

We headed over to the Jonathan Adler store to kick off Blogfest with champagne and yummy brownie treats at JA's cocktail event! A huge thanks to Jonathan Adler for opening up his fabulous store and having the cocktail event surrounded by his beautiful decor.

A Visit To Hearst Tower

This was my first time in Hearst Tower, which was super exciting in and of itself. HGTV magazine brought together some great people to listen to, like the Publisher, Dan Fuchs and Editor In Chief, Sara Peterson, Interior Designer, Thom Filicia plus many more other great and inspirational people.

Newel Antiques

I was so excited and thankful for Newel Antiques for hosting Blogfest 2013 for an evening cap. We were able to mingle with some great people, but to name a few, Thom Filicia, Jonathan Adler and Suzanne Kasler chatted with the design bloggers over cocktails and hors d'oeuvres.

Sneak Peak Of Aerin Lauder's New Collection

Last but not least, we all headed over to the Kravet, Lee Jofa and Brunschwig & Fils design studios. New York Spaces hosted a yummy breakfast for the group and led us on guided tours. We heard from Aerin Lauder at the Lee Jofa design studio to present her collection of fabrics and rugs for Lee Jofa, which will be launching this summer.  ☼

Next Week, We'll Blog About The 2013 Kips Bay Decorator Show House

Every year, celebrated interior designers transform a luxury Manhattan home into an elegant exhibition of fine furnishings, art, and technology. The event began in 1973 when several dedicated women’s committee members of the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club launched the Kips Bay Decorator Show House to raise funds for much needed after school and enrichment programs for New York City children. Over the course of four decades, this project has raised in excess of $17 million and grown into a “must destination” for thousands of design enthusiasts and is recognized for launching interior design trends throughout the world. Today, the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club is one of the most prominent and responsive youth development agencies in New York City and a “flagship” of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

I'll show you my personal favorites and highlights from the Kips Bay Decorator's Show House - I hope you enjoyed my Blogfest 2013 recap and will stay tuned for next weeks blog from the show house, it's going to be a treat for you all!
