Blogfest- In small doses


Its been a crazy fast exhausting week folks. I have lots to share with you, and I am still in processing mode for the most part.  
SO... Monday, I landed in NYC with my partner in crime Cheryle for Blogfest 2012.  It kicked off at Kips Bay Show House where the bird in me was immediately drawn to the shiny stuff.  The Lumiblade in Charles Pavarini's room was by far probably my favorite thing.  

Sorry folks, my brain is a disco tech and this made me very happy.  This massive wall of little mirror like lights equipped with cameras that reflected the color and shapes in front of it.  I sadly could have stayed here all night, and I hadn't even had a sip to drink yet. 
I want one.
(p.s. I finally took the plunge and chopped my hair short)

Other shiny stuff that warmed my heart:
this ginormous giraffe...



lots of lacquered walls...


this mirror...


and this wall sculpture...


The house was packed with 160+ bloggers.  It got super hot and crowded quick!  
The first person I met was Daniela from Aesthetic Oiseau.  Let me tell you, she is just as cute and sweet in real life. 
(Cheryle, me and Daniela)



I was also so excited to finally meet Kathy fom My Interior Life and Barbara Franceski
These ladies are so nice and I had such a great time with them! 

OK, back to Kips Bay. I knew this was going to be hard to stay focused! Here is a quick montage.
Insane kitchen...
 Alexa Hampton's room... got to hear her speak the following day, 
she is hilarious & I love her even more now.


 Scott Sanders in his Cabana Room...

 Bits of Alexander Doherty's room...

 Found this fabric paneled hall intriguing. Might have to paint something like this.
(Coffinier Ku Design/ fabric Missoni through Stark)


fabric on the doors


Also loved the similar feel of this wall paper in the public bathroom...
seriously, next room I paint is going to be all horizontal fabulousness.



 Speaking of fab painting...
got to meet the super talented Chuck Fischer.


After Kips Bay we were shuttled off to a great party at Savant's Experience Center.  Amazing space loaded with high tech everything.  I was just waiting for my technology-curse aura to fry something as I walked through.  I didn't take any pictures because I was too busy stuffing my face, drinking and mingling.  

Need to take a break now, this is starting to sound like a book report
 and I haven't even left Monday.
Be back with more people/stuff I found inspiring soon.

Hope you are having a relaxing weekend!
