Last month, I had the privilege of sitting down to talk with Tobi Fairley about the release of her new line of furnishings which debuted at High Point Furniture Market.  Presented by C.R. Laine Furniture and in their colorful showroom, Tobi’s vignettes took center stage to showcase her signature style of BRIGHT, BOLD AND TAILORED.  Watch as Tobi shares her inspiration on designing and developing a new line of furniture and see for yourself why she is renowned for such successful use of color in her designs.

Taking inspiration from a more Glamourous Era, Tobi re-defines pieces from the past and creates a current return to Grandeur.  Bold and soft tones alike blend prettily with the clean lines and fresh perspective. New twists on a Sheraton Sofa and an inviting chaise lounge and her new “neutral” of Blush Pink are well thought out as are the details of many of the other pieces on display. It’s all in the details!

A Well Designed Life via BlogtourCali

I lived a very Well Designed Life last month during BlogTourCali. What is that you may ask? Interior Design BlogTours were the brainchild of Veronika Miller, founder of Modenus, with the purpose of gathering designers from various geographical areas and design backgrounds who are active on social media, to drink wine, to travel and be exposed to new design shows, products and elements for the purpose of educating them so they can in turn educate their readers.

Arriving in Santa Monica by chauffeur from the airport to our hotel, we were treated to an opening night reception on the top floor with an amazing view. Cameras clicked and people clicked. It was magical. Veronika shared what surprises were in store for us.

Beginning the BlogTourCali foray into the California scene was not at all difficult considering the amazing weather that designers from OHIO don’t encounter during October! So after a meet and greet at the hotel with the other bloggers, both stateside and international, we were whisked off to a warm Hollywood Welcome at Petit Ermitage, a Bohemian Boutique Hotel (with an amazing website, so be sure to click on the hotel name to check it out!) sponsored by DXV,the high end line of American Standard in Bathroom Fixtures and Fittings.

Delightful and quaint seating areas where we had our evening meal shared by DXV media personnel. Remember we are all design bloggers so no toilet jokes.

Of course I had to include a photo of moi, for the DXV Strike a Pose Event. Enough of you did not vote for me so I did not win. Thanks so much.

You will learn a little more about the DXV product line when I share with you about the Westedge Design Fair and other sponsors. But before we converged upon the Design Fair we were treated to a marvelous Brunch at Miele-usa Showroom. Stay tuned for mouth-watering photos of news of their amazing new cooking equipment!
