Is #California ready for #BlogTourCali?

The rumor is true; #ChattiPatti is headed to California for a #BlogTour extravaganza, #BlogTourCali! If you have been following, you know that I have attended a Modenus BlogTour once before for the London Design Festival in September, 2012.

October, 2014 takes me to the WestEdge Design Fair and OH MY, wait until  you see the lineup of events for design education and inspiration: You can see more here. I’m really, really looking forward to all the fun and opportunities to meet the sponsors of this great trip and to talk to and hopefully interview many of them and others for Chatti Patti Talks Design future blog posts!

Yes, this is the Coast Line of which I will be gazing at next week while on #BlogTourCali! Can’t WAIT!

Over the course of the next few weeks, I will be posting about all of the wonderful places that I get to attend and also be sharing a little bit about each company who is sponsoring our group on this trip. Major companies such as Miele, Mr. Steam, Zephyr, DXV, WestEdge Design Fair and of course Modenus!

One event sponsored by Zephyr  is celebrating ten years with renowned designer Fu-Tung Cheng of Cheng Design.  Check out his website in the provided link to see his amazing aesthetic.  I can’t wait to meet him during a dinner event in Zephyr’s showroom!

#Gorgeous #Fall #Color

Autumn is definitely here in the Ohio Valley and since I am busy preparing for a wonderful road trip to California with #BlogTourCali, I am re-posting a previous Autumnal post  I wrote.  Fall is such a gorgeous time of the year, don’t you agree?

Bring out the Animal in You! Leopard in Fashion for the Home~

Lately, I’ve had Animal Prints on my mind. Must be the Fall air, I get excited to begin wearing more of my animal prints although I have many I wear in the summer months. Just as there is most probably room in your closet for a few animal print items there is certainly room in most every home for just a touch- or more… My favorite is Leopard Prints.  Let me tell you though, there is classy and trashy. Don’t over do!  Here’s a look at Leopard print done right, both as wearable fashion and fashion for the home – photos via #Pinterest. Plus, my family will get a kick out of this post, one Christmas I opened six gifts in a row that were all leopard print!

Gorge occasional chair

Stunning little leopard print occasional chair. Use this chair at a vanity, in a foyer or tucked in the corner of the living room, you can’t go wrong!

casual leopard style

Think leopard is too crazy for you? Not if you pair it with a simple white tee and jean jacket. Makes a great weekend outfit, ready for any function!

Animal Print Stair runner.

OK so the leopard print stair runner/carpet is not for everyone but certainly a stylish person lives here!

Ralph Lauren Chair

This absolutely gorgeous leopard print and black leather chair is by none other than Ralph Lauren. The epitome of class and style!

prada animal print pump

If Prada makes a high heel leopard spotted pump, you know it’s great!

Ralpph Lauren Dishes

Again, another classy but warm and inviting table setting in…yes, in leopard! China by Ralph Lauren.

Leopard print dress

Ahh, gorgeous all by itself, this leopard print dress is stunning!

leopard handbag

Great handbag in leopard print and brown leather.

Leopard boot

Pair with a short skirt and some black tights and you have a wonderful autumn look that is fashionable and stylish with these little leopard boots.

leopard scarf2

This is the time of year to don your scarf, so grab a leopard print and wear it proudly!
