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!

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!

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

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

The GE Monogram Experience

The GE Monogram Experience – Louisville, Kentucky

 

Have you heard of the GE Monogram Experience? This past July 2014, I had the opportunity to be the guest of GE Monogram located in Louisville, Kentucky for a four-day intensive educational, hands-on and social extravaganza event. Approximately 15 Interior Designers and top appliance distributors from around the country were invited to learn about the BRAND of General Electric, GE Appliances and specifically Monogram.

But first….

A visit to Louisville, wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Churchill Downs!

GE Monogram treated us to a private tour of Churchill Downs Museum and Race Track before heading back to the classroom!

It was quite amazing being at Churchill Downs when it is empty in the grandstands. We were able to watch some horses training on the track up close and that was great fun.

This display in the Derby Museum featured a history of the Silks.

Hats on Parade

Friends at the GE Monogram Experience donned Hats at the Derby Museum store.

Detail on past Derby winners bring the experience to life.

The Churchill Downs Theater is shaped to simulate a race track and has a 360〫screen to view clips of past races and interviews with the jockeys and more. I highly recommend this if you are in the Louisville KY area.

Just like a Thoroughbred, the GE Monogram experience was all class!

why choose monogrram

Another quote from the GE Monogram site explains why Monogram is an excellent choice for the consumer when searching for a professional kitchen appliance.

In the links provided for the various GE Brand appliances, I encourage you to view them to learn more about what makes GE Monogram different from other Brands in the marketplace. “Craftsmanship is the Hallmark of the Monogram collection.”* From dishwashers, refrigeration to cooking on high-end appliances, the group was educated with what makes GE Monogram a superior product in many ways in a very competitive and often confusing field for consumers. “Savor the possibilities” ~ GE Monogram.

A Hotel stay at the 21C Museum Hotel in Louisville would not be complete without hanging with those pesky Penguins, a BRAND identifier who were kind enough to pose with us.

I know, it looks like we were just about having fun at the GE Experience but we learned quite a bit, got to show off our culinary acumen and even though my team did not win the Iron Chef cook-off, we had a great time! Thank you Monogram!

Thanks for stopping by, I hoped you clicked a link or two and discovered what sets the GE Brand apart and learned about some of the features of their quality products.
