I am leaving on a very early 6:30 train Monday morning heading to New York for four days to attend Blogfest 2011. Kravet and Lee Jofa created this event for design and lifestyle bloggers. It’s basically an all-access pass to all the shelter magazines (House Beautiful, Veranda, Town&Country, Elle Decor, Arch Digest, Traditional Home) and includes events with design icons like Barbara Barry, David Easton*, Suzanne Rheinstein *, Suzanne Kasler *, Eric Cohler, Thomas O’Brien and more. (* past guests on The Skirted Roundtable).We’ll also be visiting the Elle Decor Concept House, ICFF and Kips Bay. Whew! It’s a design overdose! You can follow all the excitement through the twitter hashtag #blogfest2011. On Monday at 1:00PM EST, there will be a livestream of the opening panel discussion with the Heart magazine editors on the importance of blogs to the print industry today. Should be fascinating stuff! Posts to come!
If you would like my help on your design project, I would love to chat with you! Please email me. Thanks!
